A lovely resort at the base of the B.R.Hills. We took 2 nights three days package which was cheaper than Jungle Resorts but is still on more expensive side. Only the tent was available when we booked the stay. There is only one tent and it is little isolated on the property. You can hear the animals quite close by... More

This quaint little place in the heart of the tribal area near B R Hills is quite the looker. Its only when you spend some time here that you see the shortcomings. The activities they promise is a safari through the jungle - which you have to drive yourself to, in your own car as well, in case you were... More

The cottage room is good with a mezzanine kids area. Linen etc was fine but room was not dusted well enough like the painting or corners. There were puppies around and children had fun time. The hammock was really good. Make sure you put insect repellant. My younger son got bitten around the hips, not sure how. Nature walk of... More

Very rustic and serene eco-resort. A good break from Bangalore. Roads are good except for the last 3-4 kms. Very hospitable local staff. Excellent food and service. Profits go to helping the local tribals. Entertainment provided in the evening in the form of local music and dance is definitely worth it. Bird watching tour with the guide from the resort... More

We had a fantastic time at this resort and would highly recommend it to nature lovers. This place is about 4.5 hours away from Bangalore and is situated on top of B. R. Hills. It is located in the forest. There is a guided bird watching tour in the morning. Krishna was an excellent guide and spotted many birds. You... More

We visited BR hills during the May 1 long weekend. The booking process was very simple and Tara from administration was keen on answering so many of our questions regarding booking/ directions/ local visits. I guess the feeling of this place is enhanced stupendously by the warm and comforting hospitality extended by each of the staff, Tara and Mohan from... More

Very nice ambience with lovely cottages. Surroundings were also beautiful. Food was good but variety could have been better. Staff are extremely pleasant, special mention to Ms Tara and Mr Murali. Safari in the national park was also good. Guide had very goof\d bird knowledge.

We went for a two nights stay early May. Being a long weekend, all the rooms were booked and we could only manage the lone tent. This turned out to a blessing as this is in an isolated location and we had great access to the birds, which was our prime objective for the trip. There are 10 cottages, one... More
