Amazing place! Great time...The resort is located on such a beautiful place - Had a peaceful time. A completely refreshing experience.
27 January 2016
WOW. Yes, it was a great stay here. I had participated in the amazing games and it was great. It was not additionally charged too. I wish the staffs had been more prompt and energetic in their service. If that was there, then this would have been an awesome experience. Also, the food was not that good. It should have been much better.
09 October 2015
This is an amazing place. The service was good. However, the ambiance was not that great. From outside this place looks all classy but once you get into the room, it is all very cheap looking. I wish that there were better and nice ambiance setting inside the room. That being said, this was pleasant stay as the resort had some amazing recreational games. I always considered this place as a paradise for nature lovers. This is one place where one can sit back and relax as well as have adventurous sports. I wanted to take a laid-back and a relaxing weekend away. This is why I chose to stay in the resort here. It was completely worthy and an amazing experience for me. Also, it was very rejuvenating and refreshingly pleasant to have a stay in an estate instead of luxurious hotels.
21 November 2015
It was a good experience. My cousin got married in this resort, and he took this package for close relatives. The stay was awesome. They had a big hall specifically set for weddings. The whole experience was great. I had an amazing time. I loved the whole ambiance. Also, the hotel authorities themselves have planned the wedding arrangements and those were really brilliant. My cousin was telling that everything was well planned in budget too. This is a nice place for small scale weddings, or bridal showers, corporate events. I would suggest this totally.
