My husband and I stayed for one night. There are 6 rooms but we were the only guests so felt totally pampered by Saji and his team. Our room was beautifully furnished, complete with a four-poster bed. The bathroom was spacious and modern. An outdoor verandah was also comfortably furnished with amazing views. We enjoyed watching all the birdlife/wildlife and...

Its a palace inside a jungle. Beautiful view. Food needs to be worked for north Indian cuisine. Downside is you cannot go to the core area but are closed inside the hotels premises. Peace and beauty to be enjoyed.

There are only 6 rooms, the food is awesome and the staff is very friendly. Although their menu is fixed, they are flexible and courteous enough to make special delicacies for you....
