All these statements add more excitement to our clicking experience when we are in the perfect settings. Be it a romantic dinner, anniversary, family holiday, honeymoon or a fun filled getaway with friends, all of us tend to short list venues and activities with the best views to treasure our memories.

It is surrounded by ravishing rainforest and offers stunning views of the thundering Athirapally Waterfalls from the cozy comforts of its rooms and the restaurant lawns.
