Everything about this resort was perfect. Location was admist the nature. Food was great. Staff was helpful. Room was neat and clean. Views from the balcony are great. They will take you to the resort in a jeep and drop you to main road whenever you wish to go somewhere. It has a complete veg restaurant.

We stayed in the comfortable treehouse for three nights. The views from the room were fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - the morning yoga, the walk around the spice plantations, the food, the tea tasting and the general atmosphere. It was a serene environment and the owners were incredibly helpful. Would definitely recommend for some peace and relaxation!
