One of the good resorts of KTDC. Calm and quiet.Tasty food and good service.It's better to stay for one day.November,December,June July are good .We reached afternoon, evening five o'clock went to upper sanitorium for sight seeing, I think evening is the best time to go for upper sanitorium.

Visited this property in November 2016.The Property is beautifully built with the greenery and the surrounding beauty. The rooms are okay.The only issue with this place is that they dont have a ready mess/Kitchen.To get any food (breakfast/Lunch/Dinner) we have to pre order stuff.Nothing is readily available. Overall - Okay Stay.
