Breathtaking pics and ever beautiful Resort. Wonderful place to spend couple of nights out of the hussle-bussle city life.

bro - i am a veggie too and this place is really good to veggies also

Just be sure not to book the "food inclusive" package. just negotiate a good room rate and say that you will pay as you eat- thats always a better deal for veggies becos in the all inclusive fare they assume you are a really hungry carnivore and mark up the tariff accordingly and if u pay that and just eat vegg food, ur at loss

EDIT: cant upload some issue
try uploading now buddy. i've got couple of pics pending. would post them soon. I always wanted to be out in rain in such a setting and now it got materialized the only thing that was left out was the boating. if you guys love backwater, i had posted something about my trip to Kuttanad. You can get in through http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...d-roads-2.html (Lazying in Backwaters..Far Away from the Mad Roads)

@ Madrash-no pics of fabia. the parking lot wasn't much aesthetic to shoot the car. I had mentioned in our fabia thread that we had planned for a hill trip after returning from the resort. the pic shootout for fabia was to be held at the hills. but had to cancel the hill trip as I went down with fever

Inbetween, backwaters, lakes etc always fascinated me. Imagine an evening setting- with you sitting idly or walking along, the gentle breeze on your face, melody of a devotional song wafting through the air, chirp of the birds flying back at evening, gentle lull of the waves into the banks. there is nothing like it, right?

Beautiful. Very good one, Mystic.

Been there once. Didnt enjoy much as it was almost evening. Bad food made things worse. This was 2years ago.
There was a rumor that this place belongs to 'J' (amma).

The resort was in budding stage till 2-3 years back. But I heard that there was a management change in between and things took off really well after that and the food seems pretty good too. No idea if it belongs to thalaivi.

By the way, does your safari bear the number 567*??? couple of days back, I was standing near the benoy marbles near ambalamukku, around 6.15pm and it seems your vehicle went by like a missile. The driver's face didn't match your pic in profile. It was a reckless drive and I guess that some mechanic was testing your vehicle after you had dropped it for service
