PROS: 1.Excellent room service and well furnished rooms CONS: 1.Avoid the pricey buffet.. They have a really bad pastry chef .. Donuts, cinnamon scrolls and Danish etc weren't fluffy and tasted like bread that hasn't risen. The local dishes were excellent (dosa, idli, sambar etc) but fails with dishes from states other than Kerala. At 1400₹ for dinner it's pointless...

The setting is fabulous with beautifully manicured gardens full of birds and cute little squirrels. The staff was excellent and did everything to make us feel welcome, especially our waiter.

This is a very beautiful property with well-manicured gardens and in an idyllic location next to the lake. However, the service in the hotel unfortunately offers nothing to compliment the setting and surrounds, and falls way short of expectations of a 4 or 5 star resort.
