We had a fantastic time at this resort and would highly recommend it to nature lovers. This place is about 4.5 hours away from Bangalore and is situated on top of B. R. Hills. It is located in the forest. There is a guided bird watching tour in the morning. Krishna was an excellent guide and spotted many birds. You... More

We visited BR hills during the May 1 long weekend. The booking process was very simple and Tara from administration was keen on answering so many of our questions regarding booking/ directions/ local visits. I guess the feeling of this place is enhanced stupendously by the warm and comforting hospitality extended by each of the staff, Tara and Mohan from... More

Very nice ambience with lovely cottages. Surroundings were also beautiful. Food was good but variety could have been better. Staff are extremely pleasant, special mention to Ms Tara and Mr Murali. Safari in the national park was also good. Guide had very goof\d bird knowledge.

We went for a two nights stay early May. Being a long weekend, all the rooms were booked and we could only manage the lone tent. This turned out to a blessing as this is in an isolated location and we had great access to the birds, which was our prime objective for the trip. There are 10 cottages, one... More

We heard about this place from one of a close bud !!! And a very interesting fact was that the entire money we spend here goes for a cause ( tribal development ), so that made us fix on this place and stay for a night and 2 days. Though it's not in the midst of a thick jungle, the... More

"Gorukana" is very different from a conventional resort yet provides ample opportunities to relax and unwind. We went for a 2 night stay to Gorukana along with parents and brother's family and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Nested on top of BR hills, the resort is easily accessible from the road leading to the temple on top of the hill. As... More

Best option in location like B.R.Hills, cottages are maintained, natural environment, well behaved staff, worth stay with reasonable tariff, food quality and restaurant chefs are good, hygienic, Best part of it is a non -profiting establishment as the fund earned from the business goes to NGO which is taking care of tribal welfare.

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
