We were there for a day, last weekend along with the extended family. The resort has cottages and rooms and is spread over 8 acres. We were quite skeptical about the condition of the cottages initially because of the not so well maintained outside area leading to the cottages. But, the resort did not disappoint. The cottage opens out to... More

we had a group booking, in the month of May, the resort lacks the basic amenities like water in the morning in the wash room. Though Rooms are Big, they are old and started detoriating. Only good part is excellent Mango trees plantation. Conferance room is the worst part of this resort, so try to avoid any business meet. But... More

Ms. Niharika of Kings Sanctuary , Nagarhole is an asset to the resort. Very courteous and a committed individual, she made our stay a wonderful experience. The Garden Cottage we stayed was very spacious with all the amenities. Mango trees around the place was an inviting sight. Overall a great vacation.

I had booked the resort through their own website in March for a trip in April with 30% advance. However, to our shock on reaching the resort they said they had not such intimation and the website is outsourced and we need to talk to them. After a lot of pressure they agreed to give us the room for the... More

Spacious property with lots of mango groove and open areas 3. Nicely made open restaurant 4. Decent Service 5. Cottages... More

The property is located so close to the Rajiv Gandhi Wild life Sanctuary that its like being in a forest, with lovely Mango trees all around the property. I visited the place with my family including my wife and two daughters.There are lots of amenities for all to be involved right through the day. I liked the indoor and outdoor... More

On one edge of Nagarhole national park, Kings' is an easy 5 hour drive from Bangalore along roads that are in quite good condition. Activate GPS, or stop to ask for directions to get on to Hunsur road from Mysore ring road; else risk an extra 45 minutes driving via HD Kote. The property itself is very well spread out... More

On one edge of the large Nagarhole National Park this is a great resort to relax. A few summers back, we stayed here as a group of 4 families. The resort area was excellent - looked like they had taken over a young mango orchid and then some more right at the edge of the protected forest. The mango trees... More

Its located right on the main road. Property is spread across 40 acres of land. it offers range from single to duplex rooms, cottages, etc. We did check out on... More
