Excellent hotel in beautiful setting directly on the river, friendly staff, friendly Maharaja owner. Stay a few days. Take a bike ride in to town to see the sights (Hotel can arrange). Make sure you get a riverside room.

... lentil curry) and the Puri was also incredible. After thoroughly stuffing ourselves, we went back to the hotel and I had another swim.
