Very beautiful place with a breathtaking view. The cottages are very warm and cozy. The resort has some of the best facilities like gym, spa and the wonderful hot water swimming pool which is exactly what you need when it gets very cold. There are a lot of facilities for indoor and outdoor games. You can enjoy video games or play pool indoors. The location of the resort is ideal to go for trekking, horse riding and other adventure activities with a team of trained people always around. The glass dome structures make the place very appealing and give it a unique touch. Coming to the food, it was decent but the service was very good. The buffet was good too and the snacks bar was available 24/7.
