I would like to jot down every point here for everybody's benefit so that people looking to go to Gorukana can make a more informed decision than I did. There were more cons than pros though, let's start with the pros: 1. The staff need a special mention - including Mr. Murali who seemed to be running the show there.... More

Resort is amazing & superbly located, mid of jungle kind..rooms are beautiful with hammock just out side & beautiful small balconies as well. Food & staff were cherry on the cake.

We stayed here for 2 nights in early March 2015. The towels were dirty, the bed linen and pillow cases were filthy and the room was grubby. Considering the place only opened in November 2010 it is very tired already. It's not as if they were busy because we were the only 2 people there - wish we hadn't bothered... More

a. It is just a weekend affair, relaxing getaway b. If you are driving from Bangalore take Mysore road if you want some good food joint because Kanakpura road hardly has any c. It's in middle of dense forest, a scenic location calm and serene d. Cottages/rooms are decent and clean, i guess the best you can expect at the... More

BR hills is a decent outing for a weekend since not very far off from Bangalore however the roads from Bangalore to BR hills is not great after Mysore and hence additional hour to be factored in for travel. You do not have many hotels to choose from in BR hills. Gorukana is a good place, we chose to stay... More

We stayed in Gorukana in Jan15. Beautiful place..very clam and quite place. Rooms were good. The road (small stretch ) to the hotel from main road is not good. Parking area needs improvement. Food was good. Setup is like jungle lodges. No TV and Phone in Rooms.

The resort is beautiful and with wooden huts and hammocks. The resort staff is polite and very friendly. The chef dishes out mouth-watering food made from local produce, bamboo chilly is a must try! The resort is on a hill-slope and overlooks a lake. We throughly enjoyed our stay here. If you are taking your car, mind the few meters... More

I stayed in Gorukana since I had work nearby and needed a safe, English speaking location to stay. I have to say I was quite pleasantly surprised by the resort. The location of the resort is in the middle of the scenic BR Hills. The resort is tranquil and soothing. It is totally surrounded by nature, so you have sunlight... More
