I had an wonderful time attending a conference at the resort. The conference room had all the modern facilities. Working lunch buffet options were great. My team enjoyed a lot at the outdoor BBQ at the lake view garden. Inhouse dj was really good. Overall experience was fantastic.

Did not stay in the place but went for lunch and a stroll. Loved the ambience-the water front, the greens, the large birds that you can go quite close to. The food was very nice and reasonably priced.
