Resort is centrally located & is only around 200meters from the main road (this approach road was quite badly maintained though). Boating pick-up point is available...

With reference to above comment, management wishes to state that almost all most all the guests on 26 Dec. were satisfied with the service and several have given positive comments in their feedback. The hot water issue was due to some technical problems which has since been rectified.

This hotel is a good property at a good location. Bird sanctuary is just a km away. We loved walking back from the sanctuary to hotel. Boating too is nearby. However this hotel needs maintenance. Decent view of backwater. Food is average. Staff is helpful. Hot water is a problem and we had to followup many a times.
