At first I would like to appreciate Thrillophilia for their user friendly website with easy booking options. We really loved their deals of stay with activities. We had a great tie at our resort and enjoyed the BBQ with bonfire we danced and sang till the midnight. Also, the staff was very courteous and friendly they have guided us to visit all the famous attractions so that we did not miss out anything.
I went to Nainital with my friends on a weekend and we booked this villa from Thrillophilia with the best discounts. The Villa was so beautiful, the entire property was well maintained, the garden area was so beautiful. Our hike to Golu Devta temple was memorable. The food was tasty. Thanks for the wonderful stay experience.
