    We picked this place to celebrate New Year's with friends and family. Tl;dr - I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a high-quality space to enjoy a warm, relaxed, and refined ambience. This is the perfect oasis - an extremely well-architectured and designed property, lush green and functional outdoor space to sit back and enjoy nature, the perfect pool, tastefully designed interiors, and comfortable rooms. However, the best part is Priya's amazing crew to make you feel special. The team goes the extra mile to make you feel special in every way. This is a 5-star experience all the way!
