It all started of very promisingly! The website looked good, reviews were great, the reservation office was prompt and helpful, and we even got an upgrade on our room, and were put in a 'villa'.
First impressions were great - great design and architecture - our room was good too- very scandinavian and lots of light.
I was very excited to have a pool, but when we went to see it - it was a HUGE disappointment. It was more like a water feature, than a pool - not at all tempting - and just a long water body that had been labelled as a 'pool'.
The staff are very sweet, but not very competent.
We were very tired, and had a late dinner. We wanted drink and a light meal, but half the alcohol on the menu was unavailable - big let down when you just want to unwind.
The food was also not that great! VERY average. Our simple aanda bhurji was too salty, and my club sandwich, was just eggs and some chicken.
Our breakfast the next morning was good. And they served us under their lovely banyan tree, which was nice.
There's nothing wrong with the property - but there's something not quite right.
You can't really see the hills, as they're on the other side of the road - so it's not really an unobstructed view of the aravallis.
On the whole- VERY AVERAGE, and even though the room was AMAZING - I think that was the only good part of it.
