    This place is pure bliss! Nestled between the jungles and the mountains, An ideal getaway from the bustle of city life. The surprise certainly was how clean the place was! and food! it was just excellent! If you are seeking a couple of days to unwind or if you are a hardcore wildlife lover, Madhumalai is the place to be. Between the splendid location and the amazing staff, I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend stay here recently. I highly recommend this place for anyone seeking a relaxing time!
