This is one of the best resort with good facility. Road access is also good. Food could have been better.. As it says homestay but food is not homely. Swimming pool and artificial waterfall is good. Nearby river is in walkable distance New rooms are good but maintenance is bad
This place is a estate with a private water stream, mud volley ball and rope activities. Food is just awesome, I suggest you to opt for inbuilt food option while you book (6 stars if I have to give). I had good experience with rope activities and zip lining. Water stream has great ambience. If you are group of 6+ you should try playing mud volley ball. Place is very calm and serene. Staff are very courteos and friendly, they listen to all your requests and will try to do their best. Though there is a trek near by but it is only for beginners. Rooms ambience and beds maintainance could have been better. Its a great experience on whole. I should say thrillophilia gives the best price for this place with smooth booking.
