In a world of continuously squeezing hotel room size, this place offers independent and spacious chalet at a reasonable price. It's good for family and all ages. It's peaceful and reasonably clean. Staff is friendly and attentive. It will be a good idea if all the meals are included in your package as there is not much around available at... More

It was unique living in cottages made on stilts. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. Going to the dinning room in the night was a bit tough because the complex is huge and one can get lost. The food served was decent and good.

We stayed three nights and lived in a lake side cabin. The cabin (one quite large room, AC, bathroom, tea kettle, refrigerator, etc) was comfortable, cosy, however somewhat aged. Everything worked perfectly. The balcony gave a very nice view over the lake. The personnel was polite, service minded och accommodating.A nice touch was the hammock below the room. The pool...

Interesting place. government resort? mainly for Indian people on holiday. Chalet excellent. Good views. Good restaurant. Not close to outside shops. I would hesitate before bringing children here because of all the canals. Pool okay, no access for the elderly or disabled. A maze Chalets and I found it difficult to remember the direction of mine .
