Went with family. and the service overall was really good. They arranged food which we like, suggested places near by etc. The rooms were OK but not very comfortable. Insects and mosquitoes keep coming in and the forest insects bite you real hard. The upper bunk isn't great for sleeping as there are too many insects. Monkeys are aplenty and... More

Gorukana is 180km fron bangalore and is an excellent getaway. It feels like being with nature, full of greenery. On weekend they have tribal cultural program with bonfire which was mesmerizing. Food was good though could have been less oily. We took a cottage with double deck, very spacious, which can comfortably accomodate 4 adults. Had a relaxing weekend.

We stayed in Gorukana for just 1 night. We had taken the cottage which had one room and a bathroom. There was a small platform upstairs (which as made right above the bathroom) where they had put 2 small beds. All in all the cottage is good for a small family, but there is no extra space to move around... More

We happened to stay at BR hills for a weekend. Staying at akasa resort we were provided all our meals at Gorukana resort. (They are owned by same group) The food was very good and beyond expectation. The staff was very warm and helpful. Will surely book with them next time.

Had the pleasure of experiencing Gorukana in May this year. Thumbs up to the place. It is set amidst dense silver oak trees and the location is lovely. Well maintained cottages. Relaxed atmosphere. Best part is the proximity from Bangalore. It is an ideal weekend get away for families with kids who wish to avoid too much travel time. Fantastic... More

Being not very far from Bangalore its a perfect weekend Getaway. A Nice Property, Peaceful and Beautiful. We stayed in the tree house which was an experience. Service was also good. Each room is assigned with a guide who will tell you the details of the nearby places, where all we can go during the stay etc. I guess its... More

My friend Smith and me spent 2 nights at Gorukana (21 & 22 March 2014) in the tent house. We are basically nature lovers while my friend is a Bird watching enthusiast I also like wild life of the 4 legged variety.While he was rewarded with ample sightings of Birds I had to be satisfied with just Elephants, wild boar,...

Great property, easily accessible from Bangalore, well-kept with good service. Caution to elderly people – not so easy for them as the property has uneven ground and steep gradients between the cottages and the reception area/restaurant. I did see many senior citizens but I do know that my parents for example would have found it hard to navigate. Only crib... More
