We arrived to the hotel tired and in need of comfort. Although the grounds of the hotel were beautiful, our room was less so. The air conditioning was old and not very effective. There were a lot of bugs and lizards in the room during our stay and the bath was dirty. There was no wifi in the rooms, only...

I opted for this Tree of Life hotel because of it's peaceful green environ, & it came out fulfilling. It has spacious rooms, delicious multi-cuisine food, & prompt service. The only minor lacune was it's poor wi-fi.

You have a choice for deluxe rooms, chalets or super luxury villas. So many things to do from mountain biking, birdwatching, Ayurveda, adventure walk, fishing, swimming etc. And also very friendly staff and excellent care by them. It's a huge 65 acre land to enjoy nature!

We stayed as a family group in December and much enjoyed our stay.

Tucked away in the greenery, Tree of Life is a complete surprise package. With plants and trees all around, the place provides a great ambience. Rooms are large and well maintained. The breakfast and dinner buffets are arranged in a quaint poolside restaurant.
