Me and my wife decided to make use of a long Ugadi weekend to visit Malnad and chose to stay at Bananki Homestay after discussing with our friend who had been there a couple of weeks before us. We drove down from Bangalore and this place is located around 8 Kms from Thirthahalli town, on Thirthahalli-Koppa road. Our room was... More

We were a family of 4 drove down from Bangalore to Thirthahalli. Beautiful place indeed. Unfortunately we traveled in mid-April and the mercury was already rising. However, this is a beautiful place and Bananki is one of the best options that you have in this area. The property is very well maintained. We stayed in the rooms which are beautifully... More

Above all else, the place is warmed by the genuine hospitality and care of the young couple - Rachan and his wife Arpitha, who treated... More

We took a short pre-Christmas break and headed to Tirthahalli, 60 km off Shimoga in N.Karnataka. Booked and checked in at Bananki Home Stay, 8 km off Tirthahalli. Booking was easy. Mrs & Mr Rachan are a friendly caring couple who have waiters with 'wheels on feet'. Always moving, always serving! A lovely natural setting is the highlight of the... More

We stayed in Bananki Homestay for 4 days this week and enjoyed it greatly. The best aspects were the food and service. The cuisine is quite varied, and the cooking is to the highest standards of taste and quality. The service overall is very well organised and always at hand. We stayed in a cottage for the first two nights... More

We had planned a five day trip to this part of the state, with an intention to visit Sringeri and Horanadu and relax in the remaining available time. But, on further research, we came upon Bananki homestay and realized we could do much more if we camp here. In the end, we were able to cover much more - Meeninakatte,... More

Banakki is the best place one could select for a perfect home stay experience. Thirthahalli is one of Karnataka's unexplored beauties, where nature is at Her threshold and where Banakki enhances your experience, further. Arpita is a perfect host and her food preparations are out of this world! Both Arpita and her husband Rachan are very hospitable and guide you... More
