The Swiss tents were a great experience. The service was awesome. However, Kodaikanal seems to have deteriorated over the years. The service was great and the staff very helpful, however, the tent themselves were in need of a little repair. The hot water supply turned off on day 2 for some reason. The staff were able to fix it very...

We stayed for 3 nights. While the property is very pretty (though not maintained)....it is heavily understaffed and poor on service on all counts. Food menu is bare minimum in terms of spread for the tariff being charged.Staff is courteous and energetic but can't make up for the short staffing. The property is designed for couples and offer privacy. It...

What floored me was their warm and prompt service. Never experienced any place like this before. Amazing people. Oh and if you are into bird watching you will enjoy this place even more. It's mostly calm and away from regular hustle bustle.

The Balinese spa run by Indonesian Nationals offers the best of international therapies.
