As I write this, I realize that my post will be met with a sarcastic or condescending post from the resort's owner/manager. Even worse, from his reply to another post here, he might even claim that I was not a guest at the resort at all. In any case, I am going to take the plunge and get it out... More

Dear Austin Writer. I am so happy for you, that you 'managed to get this out of your system', Considering you visited us in July, I feel bad that this was weighing you down all this time for 3 months!! Don't fault me if I am caustic with some of the negative feedback we get. We all work hard to... More

It was our second wedding anniversary, I had planned a surprise for my wife who loves nature. At first, I was skeptic about how this place would turn out to be, I has asked Shruthi, the managing staff at Our Native Village to take me through that offers and packages, though it was quiet late at night, she was patient...

Our Native Village is a simple, gentle and deep experience... one that goes beyond the usual definitions of 'hospitality'. The feeling is one of returning to our forgotten roots and regaining our organic, natural connection with ourselves and the world. Everything from the rooms to the food and the environment is invigorating and non-intrusive. The food has a forgotten, home-cooked... More

Hahahaha...I loved the last words of your review, 'Everyone needs a dose of Our Native Village... it's an antidote for jaded minds, tired bodies and oversized egos'. You are so right - we have a lot of 'senior corporate honchos' who come to our resort and demand & command attention, and after a while melt into the natural energies of... More

A fantastic getaway for a day spend for families or couples from Bangalore. We had gone there as a large family for a picnic. The wonderful experience starts with a warm welcome from the friendly and dedicated staff. Then you can easily spend half an hour just discovering what the beautiful place had to offer... It's difficult to describe this... More

Your description is so apt for our place. You don't want to get busy with all the activities, but then you get sucked into them because they are all so different - activities which you cannot experience in the city. I am hoping we are a sweet amalgamation of contrasts. I once had a very senior tourism expert from London... More

It was a very pleasant weekend getaway. We decided on this place because my kid loves animals. He enjoyed a lot. Seeing the cows, ducks all around. We enjoyed a lot in the natural pool.It was like a fish Spa. It was a good experience and my son enjoyed that a lot. But we could not swim or go much... More

It is great that you saw value in all our activities Bino. We always tell our guests that if you want to get busy, we have enough activities - however they are all village activities, ad we hope you have the open mind to experience new stuff. If on the other hand you want to do nothing - that is... More

Thank you for your short but succinct review Shashi. We stand for that same feeling that we got when we visited our own native villages. Our children may never experience that. In fact I named our resort 'our Native Village' because of my own pleasant memories while visiting my own native village. Of course, we did not have TV's also... More

We went there for a 1 night - 1 day outing from Bangalore. We followed our GPS to get there, and it was about 10km off the mark. We called the resort and they were able to very quickly guide us to the resort. On arrival, we were offered welcome drinks but they were short by a glass (we were... More

We went there based on the previous Tripadvisor reviews and the website photos. Nothing could have been more deceiving. The resort is nothing like the website images. Its all over exaggerated on their website. Natural swimming pool is nothing but dirty, marshy pond which wasn't cleaned in ages. Amphitheatre is a room with a large TV and a couple of... More

We were looking for a quick get away from Bangalore for the weekend. We found this on internet and booked. We liked the way resort is built using local materials and designed to optimise natural air and light is amazing. Organic vegetable garden is inspiring. SPA is good. Activities for kids was good. Overall excellent break!

It is always very heartening to get a review written about our resort. It is humbling and heart warming when we get positive reviews about our resort.
