Prime location, pretty views, and good food
The hotel is located at the heart of the settlement, with most rooms facing the Kodai lake. The close proximity to the lake and the surrounding market makes this a prime tourist spot. The rooms are standard-grade 5-star offerings. The cottages are the highlight. Although just marginally expensive than the premium rooms, they come with three rooms, plus a bathroom, and a garden. The bathrooms have a bathtub which is the cherry on the top, and quite rare in the region. The food offers plenty of variety, with the buffet consisting of over a dozen options. In terms of added facilities, have indoor games like air hockey, TT, tennis, as well as spa services. The lush green gardens are a highlight, with swings, see-saws, and other contraptions for both children and adults.
