Nestled between a deodhar forest, they have a lovely outdoor area where you get panoramic views of the mountains. As our departure was in the afternoon,...

A resort with an interesting history. You must check out the hidden room in the Scottish Villa on the property. The staff is very helpful. The walk in the forest just outside the resort was very enjoyable. Great view and nicely done up place. The food was also good.
