12 December 2015
Excellent
This was the ideal fun and luxury stay after a long time here near nature with friends and cousins. This was the perfect getaway that I wanted, to be immersed in the different activities that will take one to a whole new world. True, this was a whole new pollution free beautiful world in this place. This was a space to gather a strong community of like-minded people share warm stories, and imbibe the values of an organic lifestyle. We also got to cool off at the several waterfalls close by, and we also did some reading and a bit of snoozing amidst pristine woods. Yes, you might think that these are things that happen in novels. But no, these can be real too. I had a great time here, and I am sure that most of you guys would too. By the evening, we dropped by at the charming local markets, and the Jawahar Palace, at close proximity to this truly soulful retreat to do some amazing shopping. It was a nice experience. Coming to the stay aspect, the food was good, and the rooms were clean. The bathrooms were well maintained too. This is what one looks in a trip primarily.
