We had to struggle a little bit before reaching this place. There are very few direction markers on the road. So when you plan to go here, better reach before 6PM or hire a cab. Once we reached there it took hardly any time to realize why this place is rated #1 on trip advisor.
The staff - To be frank, I had a bit of a bad experience on day-1 when I realized that as part of my package there are are some items in the food menu which cannot be ordered. So my advice would be discuss well on the package before you jump in. Apart from this, the staff were really kind and extremely focussed on the service. The staff on the houseboat, does a fabulous job delivering you quality food and still giving you your private space. Lemontree houseboat is luxurious with a built in jacuzzi on terrace (worth all the money you pay!!).
The resort is pretty small when you compare with any international resports. But when you get the same level of service, the size of the resort hardly mattered for me. The so called spa has only one massage room, so I would recommend this place for a spa enthusiasts at this point of time. Internet is as costly as room rent itself (Rs.200 per hour).
Overall a 5 star experience from a 4 star hotel.
