1. The place is really nice and lush green.

2. Hospitality is simply outstanding.

3. Food that you will relish to the last bite.

5. The last one km of the road is rough otherwise the road / route is pretty smooth. 

In short a place to relax, chill out and detox yourself. A must visit place if you like the wilderness, scenic beauty and love the nature.


We absolutely loved the place, away from the crowd, in the middle of a lovely Sal forest… yet close to civilisation. The staff was friendly and always helpful, went out of the way to provide food for our fur baby even at 5am, as we had to leave early. For cyclists n runners, the Kamadi road uphill is just brilliant early morning. All the best to the team, would love to go back!
