This review is a bit late - we share our experience around 2 years ago. The resort is a small one next to the lake. The food was reasonable. Staff polite. Advise to take lake facing room.

Kayaking, boating, horse riding are the only things you could do here. Or maybe just sit around doing nothing. Go only if you have your own car otherwise a waste of time as similar and better services available and Bhimtal and Sattal.

It's a beautiful lake away from all commercialisation. The place is preferred over Naini lake , if you want a calm lonely place with not much crowd .
