This hotel is the most expensive I have stayed in so far. The grounds are well kept and the rooms very spacious. What lets this hotel down are:
1. In a country where free wifi is everywhere they charge 100 rupee for 1 hour and if you only use 5 minutes then you do not have the opportunity to use the rest of the hour
2. Although there is hot water it is only tepid at best
3. At dinner there is no free water you must pay for it. I understand this in cheap hotels but not when you are paying $80+ a night

When I asked Prateek the purpose of this, his reply was that mothers applied this to their infants’ eyes soon after birth. Some did this to “strengthen the child’s eyes” while others believed it prevented the child from being cursed by ...

With our mode of transportation being a tuk-tuk, our first stop of the afternoon was at a ...
