The best thing about this place is its location. Very near to jog falls around 8 kms. The place was very clean. The food was very tasty. Everything was very well arranged. Vignesh the care taker of this place was super fast and arranged everthing properly. Nice location. You can listen only nature here.

There are not too many choices in and around Jog Falls. Stay @ Mathuga is a good Homestay and a nice choice in the area . They have cottages and rooms. The rooms are a bit small but well decorated(You can check out my photos). The Cottages are bigger. Since there are not too many choices, you need to book... More

This is our 3rd visit to Jog Falls (2008,2013 & now) and y second to this homestay. The owner is good and helps with the planning and reservations. The care takers are down to earth. If you are expecting a resort type experience, then you are mistaken. This is a homestay, basics all the way - food (veg only), facilities,... More

Its been nice place to stay which is close to jog falls. It has been surrounded by farms and jungle so one can enjoy scenic beauty. Walking to near by fields provide soothing feeling. Cottage is quite spacious and well maintained but you can find insects as it is close to jungle surrounding. Food is not good and options too... More

We stayed at mattuga last weekend from 29-31st Aug. When we reached there we were really happy to see the lush greenery and simplicity of the place. This is not the place for those who are looking for room service and scores of recreation facilities but for the ones who want to experience a first hand experience of a home... More

We spent 3 days at this homestay last weekend (4 families with 7 kids, all below age of 5). The cottages are very comfortable with 24 hours running hot water. The one thing that you need to take care of is the fact that it is in the middle of a plantation and open to all kinds of insects. So... More

I have requested for a booking through mail and Mr. Narahari reverted with the quote and mentioned that rooms are reserved for 48 hours and I can make the payment in the meanwhile. When I contacted him again, he said rooms are released and booked by someone else without any communication to me. Highly Unprofessional. Very Rude Think before booking... More

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
