We went there recently to celebrate our landmark anniversary. The whole experience was simply outstanding. The service standards were second to none. From the lady at the reception to the Head Chef to the General Manager- they never said no for anything. These small gestures make them the place that it is. Frankly i thought the property by itself was...

Stayed last weekend for a business meet. The welcome was warm and traditional and the ginger tea offered was appropriate as there was rain around. The rooms are well laid out - need to be careful of the monkeys who do come to peek at the fresh arrivals in the room. Heavenly bed and a bath tub with a view....

Tremendous. A combination of vedanta, avyuredic and yoga plus a menu of tasty and mostly very healthy things... and even a wine list for those of us who don't follow the ayurveda menus to the letter. Attentive staff, clean rooms, spa treatments of all sorts ... try yoga nidra if you would like to fall asleep during a yoga class......
