Tucked away down a long track at the side of a rapidly drying up river this resort provides an oasis of calm. The pool is enormous and beautiful, the grounds are extensive, views of the river bed fascinating and the staff are very attentive. The restaurant is a pleasant environment but made extra special by a wonderful chef named Sundur...

The rooms are large, airy and comfortable and the dining areas are great, open to the elements and could be described as romantic. The only drawback is it is tucked well away from the main town centre, although...

We stayed here with a yoga group in March 2017 and were bowled over by the care and attention we received. All the staff went out of their way to help the group however they could with food, transport, entertainment and even IT skills. We were given many little extras onsite to enhance our stay- such as a tour of...

Certainly not a hotel that you just happened to drive by ! It is at the end of a long single track of unmade surface and this feature gives Ideal River its main reason for visiting. "It is peaceful " Unfortunately we only stayed one night and arrived late in the evening due to road travel disruptions but wished we...

We only had one night at the Ideal River View Resort but we thoroughly enjoyed our very brief stay. Staff were extremely courteous and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean, cool and massive with a separate dressing room! The food, eaten on the river facing terrace, was delicious with very attentive and helpful staff. I was concerned...

Very nice spacious rooms, with maximum privacy. Very welcoming check-in, with flowers and a juice drink. Dinner was excellent, the staff attending to all our special wishes which are not "Hindu style".
