Editor's Review

At Vagamon Heights, you will feel totally disconnected from the outside world. The staff makes you feel completely at home though. The location of the estate is very beautiful and many nature-related activities are provided. You cannot expect any modern amenities and although the food is great, foodies will not really enjoy it because there are only a few varieties available.


  • Beautiful unspoiled natural location.
  • The rooms, services and food are great.
  • Awesome activities like boating and safaris available.
  • You feel totally connected with nature.


  • You will not find many options in the food.
  • Modern amenities and comforts cannot be expected.
  • Nothing great offered for the kids.
  • Fishing activity is not that much fun.
