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...

I was here with my family bidding adieu to year 2014 and I have to say the choice I made for the stay was immaculate. My family enjoyed the stay, hospitality and food. My son started calling it home and had to find terms to distinguish between his real home and this one. The hosts were very hospitable, food was... More

The 2 nights at Bananki was quite relaxing and exciting at the same time...all the younger ones were excited to go explore the great spots that were close enough and the elders enjoyed the barbeque and the...

Bananki Homestay is the best we have ever stayed in, period. The place is amazing, the hosts are terrific, and the food is drool-worthy. It is authentic Malnad cuisine - none of that ugly paneer butter masala and alu gobi here, thankfully. The akki rottis, ragi rottis, kadubus, etc - I can go on and on. The location is amazing...

My family and me stayed at Bananki Homestay for a total of 4 days and 3 nights. We had no idea we were in for such a treat. Right from the start, everything about the place blew us away. From the location of the place (a homely estate on a small hillock) to the rooms themselves (equipped with modern amenities... More
