    A mesmerizing weekend started off with Fragrant Sun. The specially brewed welcome drink by Sanjiv was just the start of our amazing stay. Had gastronomic pleasure rides at every meal preparations by the hosts. The rustic interiors with antique furniture pieces dotting all seating and common areas across the property makes you bond with the warm place. Cleanliness is top notch in common areas as well as the cottages. The generous and warm hearted hospitality of the hosts Kavita and Sanjiv along with the breathtaking view of backwaters make this a 'need-to-do-this-frequently' trip and stay!

We were so blessed to find your lovely home.Thank for taking care of us so well. You went out of your way to make us feel us so comfortable & loved. We are all very grateful for all the TLC. I am particularly impressed with the impeccable cleanliness. of the rooms. In spite of the monsoon there were no traces of mildew. The food was super delicious and really unexpected for a homestay. It exceeded all over expectation. Thank you for being mindful of our dietary requirements. The vibes in this place are very soothing and its the perfect place for meditation and deep connections. May it be a space for many to reconnect, rejuvenate and find solace. I'll be back.!!!!

    Fragrant Sun is a fantastically located property, perfect for enjoying the nature and chilling out. The staff is well trained and Kavita is a perfect host who made us totally feel at home. The food quality is absolutely 'Fine Dine'. We had a great time! The drive to the property is a challenging one! The best way to reach there is to key in the coordinates and be in touch with the host!

    First and foremost.. apologies for a late review.. i have to thank the hostess Kavita Ji for going out of her way for our comfort at a very short notice. That was amazing hospitality. About the place.. it's location is absolutely stunning.. overlooking the lake.. very beautiful and peaceful. The place is very lovingly and tastefully done up. Has a very rustic and earthy vibe to it. You immediately feel comfortable and at home whether it's the dining area..the living room portions or the bedroom. The lovely swing overlooking the water in the distance. So romantic. Special mention about the caretaker who was very very sweet and helpful and prepared lovely local food. Overall an amazing experience. We are obviously coming back and for longer.
