From the time we arrived we felt they were not really helpful in planning our itinerary. Started with discouraging taking kid along in safari. Well...

I stayed at this place as part of an official group event. The Cottage where I stayed was spacious and comfortable. I would say, it was a fantastic place for a family outing. Food was extremely good. They arranged river/Land safari out of which one can be opted at a time. There is a facility for kayaking on the Cauvery,...

The chef and his/her team is amazing; great menu selection right from breakfast till dinner and a nice blend of American and Indian spread. A very professional team overall. They can do much better...

We had a waterfront bungalow with a fantastic view of the river. I could have whiled away the whole day in the hammock off the back of our lanai. Our room was nicely appointed and the staff saw to our every request. We really enjoyed testing our archery skills, swimming laps in the lovely pool and indulging in a relaxing...
