  • I went today with my lady as the driver suggested, had the tour in the garden, and of course the 10 minute yet pricy massage. But that wasn't it. At the shop, we started taking this and that, bearing in mind that we are new and don't have the sense of cost yet. At the end, ended up paying $700 over untested, unverified, uncertified "medicine"! It's more than what I paid on the 5 star hotels for the entire period of my stay. Beware!
  • Beware scam trap for tourists. Very elaborate rouse to sell you fake overpriced products. There’s nothing natural or Ayurvedic about this place. The “tour” is somewhat interesting but it’s all to line you up to spend money on lies. The magic natural hair remover they show you is ridiculously expensive & turns out to be nair (or similar) nothing like what thy show you. It’s all going in the bin as we have no idea what it actually is...
