This property overlooks the river. The approach road is in a bad shape (approx 2 kms). The sign boards are all through so though in the interior it was not difficult to find. Its a beautiful property, well maintained but the food is definitely not the highlight of the place. The staff is nice, particularly Bindu who multitasks between the reception and kitchen graciously attending to the guests requirements. We were staying in the glass house which offered a superb view with the sit out opening on the river. There is no intercom /bell facility to enable room service which makes it difficult to reach out for help in case of emergency, if any. The guest of honor in our bathroom was a leech kind thing and frog which surely put us off. The trail by the river is good. One can spot many birds. The kitchen needs to offer better choice and flexibility which I feel is missing due to being understaffed as we saw all the staff multi tasking across various functions. Overall an enjoyable experience but surely food needs improvement !
