Kondan ‘The Retreat’ is part of an exclusive environment-friendly project called ‘The Lake City’, which brings you the best of accommodation in the lap of nature. This resort is all about a value-for-money experience, so check-in if you’re looking for a delightful experience. The architecture is a blend of modern luxury with rustic style; you’ll find sprawling gardens, tree-lined pathways, a cliff-side infinity pool, a communal seating area made with recycled glass bottles, and a large open-air restaurant, here.
There are two styles of accommodation available – the Amrai(INR 13000 onwards): large villas which have a private courtyard and in-room jacuzzi; and the Tarangan (INR 11000 onwards): cliff-side rooms with gorgeous views, an inbuilt floor hammock, and open-air bathroom. The former is ideal for families with kids (due to the extra space}, and the latter is more popular among couples – because of the romantic mountain-side views.
We, personally, love the room called Tarangan. What makes it even cooler is that the room costs include all meals – served buffet-style. What is a little disappointing is that there are no other restaurants around. However, don’t worry, the buffet spread here is simplistic but good. The staff are all employed locally from nearby villages and undergo training to deliver the best hospitality service you can imagine.
