Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews
This is a rustic lodge without any glitz. The people were a delight and you felt very welcome. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Wi-Fi is available in the reception area and they have a good library. The guides are excellent. Food could have been a bit more imaginative but was quite satisfactory.
