Awesome location & property for an ideal break to beat the chaos of hectic life ...nothing more can be asked for when the exquisite spa experience is topped up. Restaurant & hospitality is exceptional too( specially at this far fetched location) . Definitely recommend for a relaxed rejuvenation break !!! Truly ananda !!!
