If you are looking to explore the Malnad region or just need a getaway for a long weekend, Bananki is a great place. It's so warm and unpretentious that our family of five loved it from the moment we stepped in. Arpitha and Rachan are great hosts - friendly and ready to help with all those little tips that make...

Bananki gets the basics right - clean rooms and toilets, decent bed, and healthy food Great location to visit attractions in and around Thirthahalli and Shimoga Property: Encourages you to spend your time outdoors. Wonderful lawns, and lot of outdoor seating options that allows you to soak in the great environment and weather. You have a stream close by (not... More

The place is about 9 km from Thirthahalli and is very near to Kuppalli and Kavishaila. It is just next to Thirthahalli-Koppa highway. But inside the property it is a peaceful atmosphere. We stayed in this Homestay for a day. I have stayed in many Homestays before but this will rank in one of best places. We were given an... More

We stayed in Bananki Homestay for 1 day and really enjoyed the stay. Food especially was great, delicious food with good variety - just loved it. Hosts are very helpful. Choices of home made wine was excellent. Beautiful garden and cottages surrounded by greenery made us thinking of extending the stay for one more day. Loved the beautifully maintained lawns.... More

One of the best homestays i have visited recently. Visited this property on 10th October weekend for 3 nights. This place is worth a visit and atleast for 3 nights. Imagine bonfire every night, listening to your favorite songs and having delicious snacks. Thats what you get here. Friendly for both kids and elders alike. On top of this, it... More

We had visited Banaki on 3rd -5th Oct,2014 for 2 nights and there is no word to explain around this home stay and really worth for money. Arpitha and Rachan is really nice and very friendly, the Malnad food was really amazing. Location is perfect to explore the western ghats. The Kundadri hill station is actually an amazing driving experience(Elevation,... More

I have been to so many homestays lately but trust me none of them was so satisfying as that of Bananki. Probably most of the credit goes to the host who are very friendly and courteous. I must say they have organised and thought about things really well while setting up the place. I had been with my friends and... More

True to its sense.. its a home away from home. The place is around 10 KMS from main town, spread across 40 acres in a quiet village surrounding. Hosts are very caring, helpful and ensure all your needs are taken care of. They helped us in charting places of interest and route. It was so detailed, that we hardly depended... More
