This is what the definition of a lake resort should be. Stayed for 2 nights and I would rate it one of the best lake resorts in India. Everything from check-in to check-out was perfect.

From the cool coconut welcome drink to the beautiful rooms to a great massage centre, this hotel ticks all the boxes. The staff is professional and is ever ready to help. Breakfast spread is quite good. The swimming pools are nice with a view of the backwater lake. This hotel is perfect getaway place.
