Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed with Cliff and Susan for a business trip and ... wow ... I have never seen or been lucky enough to stay in a home like this before. Nothing was too much trouble. From the beautifully scented candles to the welcome cool flannels and refreshing drink and absolutely delicious food. Everything Cliff and Susan do is filled with love and care and they go over and above (they also have many great stories!) Highly HIGHLY recommended.

My wife and I booked Jodah Bai Retreat for our 10th wedding anniversary. From the very moment we arrived we knew we had made a great choice to stay there. We were met by Cliff and Susan who are the most accommodating, personable and attentive hosts.

The magnitude of the dedication and detail that went into to building Jodah Bai Retreat is truly astonishing. What's even more incredible is that the Cliff, Susan and their children completed the build themselves.

Jodah Bai Retreat is a place like no other. The suites are generously spacious, private and authentically designed and furnished which immediately presents you with a feeling like you have are staying in a real palace in India. If you want somewhere different, amazing and memorable then you must experience it for yourself.

Jodha Bai Retreat "Wonderful Experience" 3 nights of bliss staying in the Jasmine Suite. Location is superb, views are breathtaking. Everything about Jodha Bai Retreat is sensational and of a high standard. CLIFF and SUSAN are exceptional hosts who made our stay more memorable. Exceptional daily room service, wake up to a scrumptious breakfast, afternoon pina coladas, the Chefs dinner is a real treat. To wrap it up in a bundle of surprises "Highly Recommended".

"Nowhere better ...ever!"
Honestly the best place we have ever stayed! Just a pity there is not a 6 star option because we would give them 7 :) Susan and Cliff are outstanding hosts. Friendly, knowledgable, hospitable and most of all kind! It is really difficult to capture Jodhai Bai in a few words. It is a place of beauty and serenity and peace. The very walls and pillars welcome you like an old friend. The accommodation is of such a high standard - beautifully decorated and prepared by the couple. You feel their influence and welcome in every room and every nook and cranny. It was our favourite place in Australia and we travelled a lot. Susan and Cliff we cannot thank you enough for eveything. We loved meeting you both and your amazing children and as you know we had a ball.

Quite simply the most beautiful property we've ever stayed in. Cliff and Susan are the most gracious, welcoming and fun hosts. No detail was spared from start to finish, from complimentary welcome drinks to the best Sunday breakfast with a view for days! The story of the property build and construction was just awesome, the place literally feels like it is out of a beautiful dream. We will be back, thank you both so much!
