The best thing with Gorukana is their amazing hospitality. They go extra mile to comfort you. We traveled with our Infant child and he was very comfortable throughout, despite this being his debut trip :) The location of the property is very Good. With nothing around it gives you a very relaxing time. Cottages are built thoughtfully with each one... More

The location is excellent, Cottages are excellent, Food is very good, service is good, but all are slightly more priced. There are not much activities to do within the premises, however you can go out and have safari. Morning walks are good. You will enjoy serenity as there are only limited number of cottages. If you wish, you can try... More

We had a wonderful and memorable stay at the Resort. The place is a bit rustic and that's what makes it unique. The resort Cottages are well done and we happen to stay at the only Tree House. It was our first experience staying in a Tree House and we will cherish this for life. The place is in the... More

Thanks to Vinod and krishna and all other staff who attend to your needs very promptly. Nice to know that what you are spending there is going towards... More

Good place, but need more attention to detail. Staff were generally polite but not very courteous, food was simple but excellent and ambience was good enough for 4 stars. Where they fail are the poor entry road. A steep downhill and uphill 100 meter pathway which is rocky and slushy during rains. It damaged a tyre of our car!. With... More

With the innumerable 'save the trees', 'love nature' campaigns, I had really come to doubt which ones really meant it! Sometimes, tall claims are made but rarely kept. Must admit that Gorukana, a hill resort set in B.R Hills, Karnataka, was an exception! There were about 45 of us including employees and their family members (including kids of all age... More

We had been to Gorukana in October '14 and it was an amazing experience. After searching several options, we settled on Gorukana and I booked through a travel portal. I was shocked to find the next day that the Cottage option was not available since it was fully booked (some error with the travel portal). But the Gorukana staff promptly... More

Had an excellent experience. It is run by VGKK, a non profit organization by Dr. Sudarshan. They served high quality food. Most of their staff are local Soliga tribals. Naturist Jediya had so much knowledge and really helped us understanding their culture, Sudarshans work and the birds etc. Finally got a cultural programming in the eve was amazing...
