If you take a shower, your toilet will be wet at the same time. But airco, hot water, it is there. Fun: you can take a bike or get a swim. You can visit...

Only a south Indian menu is served but we dint miss anything much. Pretty decent entertainment options like a kids play area, an informal badminton court, swimming pool and carom board etc. Kids enjoyed feeding...

The resort is largely well maintained with some scope for improvement. We first met the owner, she was helpful in suggesting options for sightseeing and safaris. Then we were allocated...
