My Experience at Resort
Spread in a great area, the resort has 40 rooms which are designed keeping utmost comfort for guests in mind. The rooms are really spacious with twin beds or a king size double bed with beautiful contemporary interiors. They provide you lots of amenities.
The entry of the resort is really pleasing with a Buddha statue situated on a small hilly type architecture and above that part, there is a small forest of Mango trees which literally gives a feel that one is watching real Buddha meditating under the Bodhi Tree. I just loved that part of the property. I even collected few mangoes (totally organic they were) which had fallen on floor from trees. One more interesting thing that i came to know there was that since resort as of now doesn’t have swimming pool, so i asked the staff the reason. They said, they are planning to make the same under the area where Buddha statue is there. I was fascinated with the idea literally.
Upon Entering the reception, the people welcomed us in a most beautiful and traditional way possible. The put a Kumkum Tilak on our forehead and gifted us a beautiful beads string having 108 beads. They also provided us a yummy and refreshing welcome drink which had cool flavor of mint. It was really amazing.
After Checking in, the staff took us to our room which was really spacious and beautifully designed. They had provided all amenities.
The resort gives facilities of Panchkarma Treatments for wellness of body and soul. Let me explain what it is. Panchakarma is that magic technique in Ayurveda that, facilitate to eliminate the toxins within the body cells, promote self-healing ability and rejuvenates all system within the body.

I did River rafting with them and seriously, it was an amazing and safe experience. It costed us around 1400 Rs per head which is little expensive then the operators taking outside but, i would like to mention over here is that the experience we had was better and safe too. How? Because, the provided us the internationally certified equipment, well trained guide and a dedicated Kayak rider for rescues in case required. It was worth the money. My husband, who had done river rafting before in Rishikesh also said that this experience was far better than the previous one which has costed him around 1100 Rs. So, for us it was worth the price because safety was our prime concern.
