On the map the Villa 49 looked a bit remote to us - located at the end of the lake, but we booked it anyway due to its charming appearance and the nearby childrens park and we were not disappointed! The house and rooms are very well kept, seem quite new and modern, the staff is very friendly and the owner Mrs. Shenani is a perfect host! From the balcony you can watch monkeys on some days, which probably was the highlight of the stay for our 20 month old toddler. Breakfast was always very good and we had dinner at the Villa 49 one night which was a very tasty curry menu. Shenani was very helpful in arranging excursions and she speaks excellent english. Walking distance to town along the lake and the Temple of Tooth is about 20-30 minutes. We can definitely recommend to stay here - and don't miss the gorgious roof terrace!
