We just left Forest Hills this morning and wish we could go back there. We had a wonderful stay, made so by the lovely owner, Savita and her son Sameer. We were greeted at the gate on arrival as though we were old friends returning. Right away they were making suggestions for things for us to do to make the... More

Best place to stay for bachelors. Adventurous and relaxing stay. I had been here twice and will visit again with friends. Machaan is the best place to stay. You can stay on the open top at night and watch for the wildlife sneaking in. We saw sloth Bear and ofcourse deer/rabbits/wild boars. We missed elephants. Tree house is the second... More

Arrived at Forest Hill after travelling by train and car from Chennai, very tired and rather car sick. We were welcomed with open arms and smiles - we were the only 3 staying for the night. A safari was organised immediately with a very enthusiastic driver George who went out of his way to locate animals for us. Food great... More

Spent a beautiful weekend at Forest Hills in the first week of November. Infact, this was our second stay in this resort and was as perfect as our first visit. Initially, I thought I will try one of the other resorts which was very highly rated in the vicinity, but one look was enough to convince me to go straight... More

I've been in India for 10 years and this was my first trip to the Jungle. Traveling from Chennai to Maysore by train and being greeted by the taxi service arranged by the resort started our trip off right. Before I move forward I would like to add that the best time to travel through the reserve is between 5:30pm-6:30pm....We... More

Very peaceful. - Service is outstanding, making you feel at home. Owners who live on the property, spent time with us and shared a lot of jungle experiences and self-shot photographs. Our... More

Stayed with friends during mid 2013. Excellent location close to the Jungle and accessible in your own vehicle. Good spacious room with clean bathroom. The food spread has very good options for vegetarians also.

I stayed there in December 2013 all alone on the Machan just to experience the thrill of it.It was really spooky at night but not many wild animals could be seen.I could see wild boars,mongooses and deers.They have built a water hole close to the machan and the animals visit the water hole at night for water.The machan here stands...
