Positive Reviews

Fun and recreation

Guests enjoy the facilities and activities offered at the hotel. The outdoor pool is undoubtedly a highlight, though many families are grateful for the playground for their kids to enjoy. The indoor games room is also popular, especially when the weather is far from perfect.

Wonderful views

The resort is reported to have some amazing views, even from most rooms. Its hilltop location yields to a great lookout over the mountains and valleys. Guests recommend upgrading to a room with a view during a stay here.

Book a plantation tour

Visitors recommend taking a plantation tour while at the resort, as it is an unforgettable experience. Guests say its a peaceful way to spend some time and learn something new. According to travellers, the resort is generally a great place to hike around on, and its not uncommon to spot an elephant while out and about.

Negative Reviews

Bug spray required

Partially because of the lush and dense forest surrounding the property, insects seem to be a common problem at this resort. Many guests wish they had brought bug spray with them.

Not exciting dining

Guests are generally not thrilled with the food from the on-site restaurant. For some, the major issue is also the limited menu, especially the lack in availability of popular local dishes.

Far from the main attractions

While guests enjoy the location, many note that it is quite far from any major tourist centres, so most of the popular Coorg sites will require a long drive to get to.
