The room was very spacious and well equipped. Ajay and his staff are very friendly and helpful. The fresh flowers for the room every day were lovely! And so was the...

My wife and I had the pleasure to spend just over two weeks at Villa Jacaranda in December. We stayed in room 1, which has its own verandah, and absolutely loved it. Ajay and his staff were superb, helpful but unobtrusive. The rooms were impeccably clean. One thing which is highly recommended is to try their food, it is delicious....
