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

First the pros - Good food, obliging and helpful staff members, awesome cottages with loft and greenery all around and lot of activities (cultural and fun) to keep you involved. Cons: a bit on the higher side in terms of pricing. The thing is that the revenue from the resort is used to support the local tribe. Definitely recommended if... More

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
