1.Firstly we ( me and my friend) could only stand to stay there for barely 20 minutes and hence those were the most expensive 20 minutes of our lives.2. The arrangements were really substandard when it came to what we paid for and also imagined from my conversation with you.3. The food was again very below average and something that is served at a very basic wedding at some community hall. A lot of things mentioned in the menu weren't available. The taste was again bad. The sitting area was dirty and smelly. There were stray dogs hunting for their own meals ( like I said it was a like a very SAD wedding event of a random realtive which we are forced to attend.)4. Coming to drinks & service at the bar, again the area was extremely underwhelming. The drinks on the menu weren't available. The snack counter was empty. We were told it'll be refilled soon. There was some issue in communication as well as not everyone seemed to be well-versed in English or Hindi.5. Coming to the tents + washrooms, pretty decent but washrooms were again more dirty than expected. 6. Ambience - extremely sad! The whole vibe of the place was anything one wanted to take in and feel good about. Didn't feel like taking pictures or sitting anywhere as it really felt like I am at some Wedding I didn't wanted to attend. The decor was given zero thought about. Nothing exciting at all. Shabby satin covers on plastic tables. Stray dogs. Litter. That's it. - by Ritika for New Year Camping under the stars organized by Banjara & Gypsy .
