Stunning location, a true sense of the wild, blooming forest foliage surrounding every nook and corner, luxurious comforts and the most impeccable service possible – a travel package doesn’t get better than this. Every room connects to an outdoor balcony or roof top terrace so you’re never far from nature. Start your day with a piping hot South Indian breakfast before taking a dip in a pool embraced by forest hills. A quick lunch and head for an afternoon safari where it’s not uncommon to chance upon a merry herd of elephants splashing around in their makeshift pool, a tiger nonchalantly crossing your path and a smattering of deer obliging you with the perfect pose for your wildlife picture. The spa is your perfect stop post the adrenaline rush; take your time to savour a signature coffee based massage and then head to the charming bar for a calming red wine. End the evening with Malabari parathas and home-style chicken curry and then curl into bed only to be woken with the call of chirping birds and maybe a spotted deer peering through your courtyard. This is what bliss was meant to be.
