First of all drive from Bangalore- whoa! 6 lane roads all the way! with plantation on the divider and eye catching scenic beauty all around.
Stay at hotel- loved every bit of it. Enjoyed pool as well, though chilling cold but you gonna love it! Rooms were really spacious with life size balcony. Courteous staff too! Enjoy evening snacks on the terrace near the restaurant overlooking breathtaking valley view with thick clouds hovering by the horizon. We just kept strolling around the premises for quite a while- it was quite relaxing.
Room- We took the 6th floor pool facing rooms. But we did check out all other rooms out of curiosity! Must say my room had the best view of the hills (ladies/gents seats could be seen from my balcony), which I preferred, along with spacious balconies. Valley view will have equally romantic views but noise of continuous honking from down below cant be avoided.
Food- Variety and quality ! everything we ordered (veg, non-veg) were enjoyable. I personally liked sea food and thai curry.
NearBy- Spend some evening time near the lake which is just 10 minutes drive. Get some Avocados for yourself which were way cheaper than what you find in Bengaluru. Gents/Ladies seats are also a good drive.
