The villas cost Rs.125,000 per night and include a range of services: shuttle services, vehicles-on-hire, booking activities, arranging for babysitters, private cooks and stocking the residence prior to your arrival. Simply send an email listing your favourite drinks, snacks, shampoos, shower gels or toiletries, and the team will have it ready at the villa pre-check-in. The villas even arrange for a destination executive to make your journey easier. Dodani adds, “Our vision is to be a trusted brand for the most comfortable vacations. Think of it as your shortlist of the very best properties, all here, in one place.”
