Property is worth Visiting ONCE ,to explore the antique materials used to build this property. Different kinds of Gajalakshmi arts in every room entrance shall be watched.Museum is informative. Swimming Pool is really BAD. SPA service is not available. People of this resort are really good.

The decor is luxurious and the Haveli has a 15 minute video about itself and the area. The staff and food were great. The wifi was ok. No television. A rare opportunity to stay in a real Haveli with much more character than the average hotel.

Stayed 4 years ago and it was a pleasure to return. An authentic minimally restored mansion it has great charm. Really, it feels like a museum, with so many original fixtures and fittings. I have read other reviews and would say that, in my view, it is well maintained. All the 'essential' services (a/c, hot water) are perfect and indeed...
