    The Location, View of the Property is Great overseeing the Lake.. Location is Big and has activities for the guests.. Food is Average.. Service Levels needs to be Improved.. Basic things from the Rooms were missing and were not cleaned when we checked in..

    The rooms were spacious. Service no doubt amazing. Food preparation & quality will meet your expectations and will leave you satisfied & delighted. On the banks of the backwater the view is amazing. Have sufficient aminities but need to work on their maintenance.

    Yes, the private pool has walls all around. However the pool is not so clean and not maintained well. Partly it is because of surrounding trees, there are lot of leaves etc in the pool.
