We are sterling members and this is claimed to be best of sterling properties, but unfortunately its no where close to other sterling properties in terms of experience.
Although the property looks good at the first sight, but the studio and classic rooms are very uncomfortably located on the back side and may not be easy for kids and elderly.
The front-desk staff here is very arrogant and rude. Other lady staff members were very polite and friendly.
Check-in was a painful experience. We reached at 2 PM and were give the back-side studio. I requested for the room-change as it was not a convenient one with my kid. I was asked to pay addition to get that done. On refusal, I was told to wait. I requested the same at 5 PM again. Again the same story... I was asked to pay additional, I refused. The person on front desk (Vighnesh) was very rude and kept me waiting for another 15 mins. After that they took me to show another room, which to my disappointment was next to the previous room (how insensible is that?). Anyways, I continued with the originally booked room.
Everything was overly priced (food, activities, bicycles).
I would recommend not staying here. There are better properties around the lake.

Great property located very near the lake. Enough activities for kids including indoors after sunset. Food was yummy. Staff is co operative. Why not 5 stars? Slowish service esp at dinner. Random stuff like car parking outside the resort and wet paint when guests are staying!
