This is definitely a place for a relaxing weekend getaway from Bangalore as mentioned by other guests who have stayed here. But, I have mixed feelings while I rate this place and doubt if I would want to rate it too high. Let me start with the pros. It gives you some unique options unlike other resorts, which are bullock... More

Fantastic place for a weekend getaway. Warm hospitable people. Great ambience. Kids love the animals around. And the food is brilliant. Very authentic local flavors. No booze (except for wine) is the only issue. Difficult to believe such a place is available so close to Bangalore. Definite visit. Do'nt go by the google maps directions, it has a small hitch...

It is so difficult to imagine that there is a place like our resort so close to Bangalore...well said and so true! Lot of our guests reflect the exact same sentiment. We always seem to think that to go to exotic places, we need to travel far, long distances and for long periods of time. Somehow that is seen as... More

Nice place for a getaway, just focused on village style living. Kids enjoyed seeing our traditional life..good for a break, but not advisable for video savvy people. We had a company of another family and we felt it was a welcome break.

Thank you for your review Srinivas. You said it right - we are not for the video savy (I would say video/TV addicted) people! I am glad you came with friends and had a lot of fun. I am also glad that your kids got to see the traditional way of life - something that is becoming a novelty for... More

It is a place made with love and dedication with great attention to details. The strong passion for ethnic decor, food and entertainment as well as sustainability and Eco friendly systems and processes is very endearing. The smiling staff are very attentive and helpful. The natural pool with no chlorine allows a refreshing swim and some fun sporting activities. The... More

There are only three things we can offer - our love, dedication and passion. Every time I say this to my finance people, they tell me sorry we cant take this to the bankers!!

Booked this place for a weekend with wife and my son - 16 months old. Place is secluded from the hustle of the city. Themed around a village dwelling with many activities. My son found the animal petting & bullock cart activity very interesting. Many things to engage the attention of a toddler. Rooms are without AC, can get sticky... More

Thank you for your review Shashi. I am so glad that your little son enjoyed himself. I am sure the bullock cart ride would have been a complete novelty for him. It is a novelty for a lot of adults! You make an interesting point on quenching the inquisitiveness of little kids on farm living. You are so right. Our... More

We visited this place last weekend and fell in love with it. It was a different experience altogether compared to regular resort visit. The food is just amazing.... the cook even made separate dishes for my 1 year old son which we quite much appreciated. The room ambience is unique in its own way... I'd anyday suggest go for it....

Fantastic location - in quick driving distance from the airport and the city. Loved the Kerala massage - it was different than the usual massages I have had - much more deliberate and after a long week of meetings in Bangalore city - made for a wonderfully rejuvenating break. I also think the fact that food is sourced onsite makes... More
