The hotel was superb. Service was excellent, the pool was very welcome and the food memorable. The staff couldn't have been friendlier...

A little bit of everything one wants in an upscale resort - elegant rooms, spotless grounds, inviting pool even in December, superb food, and above all impeccable service with a smile. The restaurant and staff were almost like family catering to special requests for a child under the weather. Could not have asked for more. Set into a hill side,...

I loved the grounds of this property. We had a very nice room overlooking the pool. The pool area was very nice. The restaurant was terrific, with impeccable service. One night they had a dance performance, and it was wonderful. We were there two nights, and there were flash rains, but the staff was quick to lend us umbrellas. The...

We were there for one night. Check in was easy and quick. They advised that we may have to "climb up a few stairs" to get to our room. We did not say anything but maybe they sensed our hesitation and agreed to upgrade us to a room that was almost on the ground level. The room was quite dark...

Indian Adventure to remember. The accommodation was great and the pool and gardens beautiful. The dancers were excellent. The buffet was quite good and breakfast adequate. The hotel is situated next to a game park which was enjoyed by many. We visited a cardamom plantation and our guide was very informative.
