Amazing place to have great fun with friends and family. We were 3 family and had rocking time at this place. Our 3 kids too enjoyed the stay and activities completely. The staff helped in all possible ways to make the stay enjoyable. Sathish who handled our booking and stay for all 3 rooms was particularly excellent.

We visited in the last week of April-2017 Hotel: The hotel is maintained extremely well. There are quite a lot of choice of rooms. We stayed in the courtyard rooms. The executive rooms with garden view looked slightly better, although it needs to be booked quite early on. Overall there are only about 32 rooms for quite a large property....
