Nice resort in Gorumara. Well maintained, spacious rooms with balcony, sitting where with the morning cup of tea finds you amidst trees and birds, under an open sky and before an open vista. I agree with an earlier reviewer that if you don't have your own vehicle, you may find the trip a bit uncomfortable and expensive. Our tour to...

This definitely is one of the best properties in Gourmara. Spread over 10 acres it houses only 12 rooms which is what a resort should be, all you can see from your room is the flora & fauna surrounding you. The rooms are quite spacious & comfortable equivalent to any four star property with individual geysers, split air-conditioners and the...

A big NO, if you are looking for a jungle feeling. This property is too far from the jungle. More over it is just beside a village surrounded by local houses. As a resort it will score high. Nice resort, well decorated rooms & washrooms. Well maintained trees throughout the resort. Helpful staffs and manager. Nice food (though the menu...

This property is well located: it lies alongside a waterbody and a stone's throw from the Murti river, it sprawls over a huge area, which is full of fruit trees: I saw mango, jamun, lichu, amloki and several others. There are huge bombax ciba trees, and all this makes the resort itself a magnet for birds. The rooms are standard...

Nice property, well managed. I went with my family, with two old people in the group and had a comfortable stay. Following will be my advice to people who visit the place- 1.

We stayed there for a night on the 15th of Aug 2015. Has great expectations from the property which i will say was to a point fulfilled. The property is well maintained with nice rooms. But the hotel amenities will tell you there will be fruit baskets and mini bar which are not there or has been discontinued. Call services...
