Checked in with family ( 6 adults and 3 kids) on a Saturday afternoon and was allotted 3 rooms in the River view cottage ( 1 on the ground floor and 2 upstairs). First look of this property was not impressive as there was nothing flashy and luxurious .Rooms are very normally furnished and rugged with basic setting and gives... More

My experience was really bad at the resort! The rooms were not worth the cost! ! Food was way expensive.... to be honest, there are better options available! ! Do not opt unless the last option. Do not book looking online..

I had stayed here as a Privileged guest many times. Simple rooms but clean. In a small area, so many indoor activities have been imaginatively incorporated. Being inside the retreat is more exciting than being outdoors at Yelagiri. Their food is inviting. ..they take pains to get fish from the plains. All the food served is fresh and delicious. Food...

The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the sit outs, out side greeneries, lawns, gardens form a splendid feature. My kids enjoyed a lot with the Table Tenis board, carm board and other outdoor gaming facilities such as badminton... More

It was a great experience. yelagiri itself is not a happening place, so the relaxation at the retreat was our main activity. The retreat itself was well organised; they did everything to make us comfortable. I could have wished better state of the rooms. I think a very lttle work can make it much more amenable. For example the bathrooms... More

Located 230 km from Chennai, it is a good drive of about 3.5 Hours from Chennai. I had my first visit to this place last weekend. We were 6 members of our family as a group. The other members had been here before me. Located at an height of over 1000 metres, it is an affordable week-end break from Chennai.... More
