Setup amidst the dense moist deciduous forests of Purna Wildlife Sanctuary, one can relax and immerse into the thick forest cover of teak and bamboo to have a splendid experience.

On the ground floor, apart from the reception, there is a comfortable lounge where you can sit and drink tea or just read.

It is a small comfortable hotel. Our staff offers an attentive high-quality service and is always ready to offer any help to guests. There is an amazing fusion of calm and tranquility at hotel with hectic outside.
