I had booked this place on the insistence of my wife although I was a bit skeptical after going through a couple of reviews in TA. Bookings over travel portals had sold out by the time I decided to...

Visited with family in Oct 2016. Beautiful resort nested next to the forest land. As the name says, this is a real retreat. One has to just sit back, relax and retreat into silence. Good cottages, sufficient food choices, beautiful pool. Staff r very friendly. This is a retreat located close to forest land and quiet interior. So do not...

They had a beautiful campfire in the open at night and it's thick forest all around. That said, the bathrooms, beds and kitchen are more of a homestay quality than...

Been here with friends and the trip was worth mainly because of the location of this resort., secluded in a corner facing the reservoir water and among the woods and the view from this resort is breath taking. added to that excellent hospitality extended by the staff combined with great food. you have necessary elements for a great vacation trekking...
