    We had a great time. The staff is extremely polite and service oriented. Special mention of Mr Aniket who took care of us like a family. Timely and delicious meals, neat and clean cottages and room, lush green lawn and garden. Brought back fresh vegetables from the kitchen garden maintained on the property. I would highly recommend this place.

    The property was good and the staff was also courteous. Had a problem regarding availability of food as in-house kitchen was not operational. The food was ordered from outside, however we were informed that cooks were not available due to some issue at the last moment. We were informed that kitchen was operational normally and shall be operational in future as well.

    The staff was very courteous, and provided fabulous service. Kudos to the staff. The meals could have been better. A little bland to my liking. But customized orders were nice. Fish was yummy. Property was secluded, well maintained. Archery, badminton, swimming pool helped kids enjoy to the fullest.
