I would like to mention the warm welcome we received on arrival from Mr.Sunil Panicker and he kept in regular contact with us throughout our stay. He provided us with all the relevant guidance relating to places to see and also helped us with our taxi requirements. The other staff too kept the communication well and made us feel comfortable.
