The abodes here are cottage styled bedrooms that offer splendid views of the surrounding hills, lake and tea estates
Some of the cottages house two bedrooms under one roof
The bedrooms are furnished with period furniture and come with cosy fireplaces
They also have in-room sitting areas, large windows and verandahs that allow plenty of sunshine and light to stream right in.

The food served here is remarkably fresh and prepared using exotic herbs and vegetables all produced within the estates’ garden or sourced from local vendors
The flavours are unique in ways more than one and have been inspired by the indigenous tribal cuisine and fused in well with modern tastes.
A foodie or not, the meals here will definitely be a highlight of your experience!
