Access- Nirvana's placement, although, true to its name in being peaceful and private, is a bit tricky. Google maps takes you to a different place. You have to find the Corporation bank and take a left, reach a football field on right and continue down it till you reach a left with a sign for Lilliput. Then continue down that and find a German bakery. Follow the up hill road and on the dead end is Nirvana Hermitage. The road is quite uphill, narrow and ragged so be careful if you're driving a twowheeler. Location: There's this feel of calm once you reach there but you also have that slight fear at the back of your mind sensing the remoteness, having drove through, narrow roads(patli galis) to reach there. The property is beautiful and is well maintained. The lush greenery all around was a welcoming contrast to my city life bringing back childhood memories. The cottages are spacious and have balconies. The pool is large enough and has a nice view of Sunset, best time to be in it. The bar is near it and is really something in the evening. Staff and Service: The receptionist was very helpful and cordial. Also suggested different nearby restaurants and local happening places. Room service was good, given the off season. When we needed bikes or cabs to go around they contacted the vendor and the transportation was at the hotel on time. Food: I have traveled a lot in India, but never have I had an instance when the hotel I stayed in had the best food I had. Maybe it was the off season and the cook was less busy, but he made some sumptuous dishes.
