Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

Superlative! In every way. Would have loved an extra day here. Stunningly designed with minimum impact on the environment. Careful and attentive staff, hugely knowledgeable guide, Erwin Angel d'Rose who could not have done anything more to make our stay so good. Full of information, always willing to answer questions and discuss issues. His leadership of our trips into Satpura were brilliant. Such good company too. Our room was lovely, especially the outside shower, where we were later able to watch the purple sunbirds drinking from our shower head! Quite an outstanding place. Thoroughly recommended.
