When we arrived, it was a visual treat of a very beautiful, wonderfully maintained, and exceptionally peaceful place. Away from the city crowd and traffic, this place is silent, closer to nature, landscape surrounded by greenery. Arpitha, and Rachan played perfect... More

Blissful.. One word to describe the 2 day stay at Bananki. Extremely graceful hosts. Our tastebuds were treated with the authentic Malnad cuisine. The place is well cradled in lap of the nature making it even more special Great job Arpitha!! Keep it going.. :)

Best part of this place was their FOOD, I am basically a foodie who loves to experiment and enjoy food from various places. This... More

The helping staff is really friendly also. A very sweet bunch of folks keep... More

The personal attention given to my family by the homestay owners was really wonderful. My family enjoyed the food, accomodation, sights and conversations during our stay. The Malnad cuisine offered was delectable as well as the homemade wine sampler ! Would love to come back again and catch up with some of the other places around which we couldn't visit... More

If you want a perfect balance of nature, activity, peace, insight & and relaxation - this is the place to be. The wonderful couple Arpitha & Rachan have it in them to ensure you will never be let down. The serene atmosphere, tantalising food and spread - with so much in abundance to do, we couldn't get a better getaway.... More
