    Ideal for families with children enjoying open and natural play areas. Two cottages are wonderfully laid out and offers lot of landscape/ play area / open spaces for children across age group. Well curated spaces for play area, swimming pool, lawn area, badminton courts, archery etc. Property location is remote and little far from beaches. But if you are doing get together, then this ideal place. Courteous staff and prompt services deserves clap.

    The property was at a secluded location, in the midst of nature and exactly the way we like it. The staff was very friendly and served our needs with a smile. The food was good. They also guided us for local sight seeing as well as all the things we needed from outside as well. The only thing that could have been better was that the rooms were very far apart. Closer rooms would have been better for 3-4 families together.

    Wonderful place. We visited in the monsoon. It had lush greenery around alongwith well maintained rooms. We got fresh linen daily. The meals are fingerlicking good. The glass room offers amazing view of the surrounding fields. Nagaon beach, Korlai fort and beach are all easily accessible. The staff is polite and welcoming. The only drawback is the washroom which although private but is out of the room. But u completely forget that when the hot and powerful shower makes u feel fresh and revived. Will definitely recommend!

    Good break from the city- the farm has a nice charm about it. The caretakers are very nice and cooked the most delicious home cooked food. The place could be maintained well as it had too many leaks and water logging; overall we had a pleasant stay
