One of the main reasons for us to choose gorukana after one of my friends visited this place and recommended it was its close proximity its to Bangalore. The drive is truly pleasurable with hardly any traffic and good roads. It's a well located and a eco friendly resort. Spacious cottages with attic add to the charm. Though we felt... More

We've stayed here for one of our weekend getaway trip. Gorukana is one of its kind, first of all it is owned by an NGO and profit goes to tribal development and education which makes it special anyway. The place is in the middle of a lush green forest, cottages are awesome and well maintained. All of the staffs are... More

Very nice place for relaxation. The maintenance is good. The evening activities were engaging and food was average. On the flip side, the jungle safari was a let down. First of all we have to drive ourselves to a specific point and then pay for the jungles lodges guys for the safari. If they can include it in the package,... More

This beautiful folk song still rings in my memories and makes me want to go back to Gorukana. Rooms are well done. Simple and clean. Food is average..nothing too great nor bad. Nothing much to do. Relax and enjoy. Don't miss their evenings, full of fun and music. You can join them too.

This is one of the best places I have visited. Situated between the BR hills and K Gudi forest range, at the midst of tribal colonies, it is absolute delight for nature and wild life lovers. Every staff member in the resort are very cordial and very helpful. They make us feel at home with friendly conversations and providing information... More

Location: Location of the resort is fantastic and is easily accessible from the main road. The last 200 metres to the resort is a very rough patch but that is acceptable given that you want to get up close with nature. Thankfully it is only 200 metres and this is an important consideration for people not having SUVs. Its also... More
