View was nice from the hotel. Very expensive. I felt some of the amenities like heater should be available in the room, cannot be a value added service. Staff was friendly. Food was tasty. Location was good.

First of all, kudos to support staff for the excellent care.. Rooms are expensive for the facility they provide..and the B/fast for additional person of Rs.350 is not worth for the value.For the same price, kodai resort provides a spacious rooms with better facilities & food.

I'll focus on the positives which are a lot. Location, Courteous staff, Views, food et al. You get attended to in no time. The biggest factor that left me disappointed was the pricing.
