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

People in charge of the homestay took care of us right from the moment we left Bangalore to the moment till we reached Bangalore back. They were extremely understanding for everything and even helped us with the best route to the places we visited. All in all it was stay worth remembering with the beautiful cottage and surrounding greenery ..... More

It is perfect whether you want to just relax or do sightseeing in the area. We visited when the monsoons were in full glory hence were limited in where we could go however, worked perfectly to enjoy the place and relax. Arpita was wise with recommendations considering weather conditions and local know how. We also enjoyed chatting with the family.... More

Going by the reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked this place. The drive to Bananki is a scenic journey. 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.. :)
