6/10 Good

Great location! Average service
The only great thing about this resort is the location. It is 15 minute ride to the resort on the boat from jetty. Location: 5/5 Rooms: 3/5 Food: 2/5 Service: 2/5 They charged about 500INR for dinner buffet which had 6-7 items in total. for that price, in Bangalore, I can get a full 5 course meal. When i arrived, they told me a boat is always available if I want to go back to the jetty. I stayed for 3 nights, after couple of nights, i wanted to get out of the resort for couple of hours and when i asked for the boat, the lady at the reception made strange faces. We finally got the boat but hotel staff's reaction made me really uncomfortable. I was even willing to pay if they had asked. Overall, if you are looking to relax and don't care about the food/service, i suggest this place.

relaxing place where the food is excellent
This is a place to relax and chill out. The food is excellent. Best we had in India. couldn't wait for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We stayed two nights but could have stayed longer.

10/10 Exceptional

Very peaceful and comfortable stay
My wife and I came for a few days relaxation. This hotel is ideal for such a purpose. It is on a peninsula on the lake which has been (deliberately, I assume) cut off from the 'mainland', and is reached by a very short boat trip. The service was excellent: My suitcase was delayed in arriving 3 full days after I arrived, and the hotel went out of their way, making many phone calls and navigating the Indian bureaucracy (I'm not sure that I could have done it myself) to get my case to me as soon as possible. The one piece of advice I would give to anyone considering staying here and to whom internet access in their room is important, is to request a room with internet access. The rooms farther from the centre (we were in one of the farthest) did not pick up the wifi and we had to come to near the centre to connect. This was a minor issue for us but may be important for some.
