Dear Mr.Ganesh, We are surprised at this review since the hotel does not serve 5-7 Course meals. The resort is an full Ayurveda hotel. The Hotel has gone through continuous refurbishments over a period of ten years. Lastly as resort which caters to European only guest I am surprised how you mange to write the above review.
