For all the wonder and mystique that the jaded traveler is searching for, head over to the castle in the mist. If you want high speed wifi and a full DSTV Bouquet, go elsewhere to any number of basic, boxed by the dozen hotels or B&B's. If you want to rekindle a marriage, rediscover your childhood excitement, escape to a world of limitless wonder or forget even momentarily about the ennui of day to day living, this is the place to go.
Mani, the host, is of course a wonderful human being. The entire castle and gallery is his vision, and he is as wonderfully upfront and honest as his art. Lastly, the food was imbibed with as much passion and life as the rest of his creations, definitely go for the dinner option as well as breakfast. The Ruby Room is a must for the best experience- the jacuzzi is a wonderful touch.
Can't wait to be back!
