This property is well located: it lies alongside a waterbody and a stone's throw from the Murti river, it sprawls over a huge area, which is full of fruit trees: I saw mango, jamun, lichu, amloki and several others.

We stayed at the riverwood for two nights in October 2014. It's set in the Gorumara national park surrounded by jungle and paddy fields. It's a really nice resort and the rooms are lovely with big beds and huge showers. We felt a little strange simply because we were the only guests when we stayed so we were outnumbered by...
