The tranquillity at this place was an exorbitant experience!!! Liked the hospitality of people (every one). This I would say will be stored in my directory for future visits. Food was delicious & variety was provided as per our request and choice.

A relaxing place amidst the farm. Our rooms very privately located and was quiet and peaceful. loved the camp fire every night, especially our little 4 year old. The food was excellent and very tasty, fresh and lots of varieties everyday. Just walking around the house itself was nice and refreshing. The staff and the hosts (Arpita and Rachan) go... More

We were at Bananki resort in Apr 2014 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The place is ideally located so that you can make the most of your stay by visiting the many scenic places nearby. The food is amazing at this place. Places to visit nearby are the Bheemankatte, Ganesha temple nearby, Kundadri and Shringeri. It was a... More

We stayed there last week. A very enjoyable experience. Our daughter had a lovely time. We were well taken care of by Arpita and her staff. We were even provided packed food for our journey back. Excellent homely food. The cottages are a little small, but good enough. Overall a very satisfying stay.

We visited Bananki on the recommendation of a friend. I visited there with my family along with another friend and his family. Located in a very well maintained estate, the main house and the other cottages are beautiful. Arpitha and her husband Rachan along with his parents are wonderful and warm hosts. They were all engaged in ensuring that we... More

During our quest for a "year end vacation" destination, we finalized on “Bananki”, based on reviews on tripadvisor. It turned out to be an excellent choice! Bananki redefined the term “homestay" and set a new benchmark. It has been the best Homestay experience for me and my family. We had a 'fun-tas-tic' experience that can be attributed to: • the...
