It's one of the best places at the back waters... but nothing much to do. Average food and good staff. The motor boat ride in the backwaters is the best attraction. It's nice rooms and a small resort.

The resort was good and the rooms were okay. Its bang on the lake and you get wonderful view. The front office staff were very friendly and helped us enjoy our stay. They arranged a boat ride at a very nominal price and were very cordial. The food in the restaurant was average.
