A soothing experience after a long travel through chaotic traffic! In the middle of almost nowhere we found it a very homely place. The plantation was lush green, and free of any traffic noise. Yes, a few birds chirping, and night visitors crunching on the rooftop of our cottage! The atmosphere, the service, the food, or the ambience, just homely!... More

I had the opportunity to visit Jog falls along with 2 friends and we chose to stay @ Matthuga. We enjoyed our 'home' stay of two nights in their cottage on 19th/20th June 2014 as the place is different with lush green surroundings and birds will give you 'natural' wake up call in the morning ! The stay was 'special'... More

This is a very homely resort, with just a few rooms and cottages. It provides experience totally different from that of a normal hotel. Spread over a few acres of greenery/plantations, the cottages are large, well designed and comfortable. The resident couple that manages it prepares home cooked simple meals and is keen to help weary travelers arriving after a... More

Great place, big rooms and nice home cooked meals with a lovely local flavor. The caretakers are very nice and accomodative. Good base to see Jog Falls and the nearby sights. Loved the morning walk to the fields.
