The experience was really good. The food and service is good. Rooms and view is great. However, the hotel must allow alacarte ordering for dinner in the cafe ir restaurant. Alacarte is only possible from room which is not good at all.

Great location in terms of view. Stunning view of a waterfall and cliff from the hotel. Although the hotel is almost next to busy expressway, there was very little or no disturbance in the room. The breakfast spread, although not so vast, was not too bad. The food here is terribly expensive for the quality. We ordered veg biryani costs Rs 500 per plate (plus taxes). I think a roadside biryani would be way too better than this. Other day ordered a Paneer dish and Daal with two portions of Tandoori roti. Costed Rs 2000 and again the quality too mediocre. Roti of the size of big poori. All in all, good stay but disappointing food. If you don't ask, they don't clean the room but this could be due to covid restrictions.

Great Stay in a Great Place!!
We have been to this resort for a 1/2 to 1 day picnic several times, which have been of immense pleasure. Once before we had stayed for 1 night, but we were disappointed because there was a "destination wedding" going on, which disturbed our stay. But this time it was different. Covid-19 had put so many restrictions, but staff did their best to cover up thru a sincere and good service. After being open after a long lock down also, they had maintained the resort to a pretty decent level. We really enjoyed our stay!!
