I went to this village themed resort with my gang of gurls in around March 2014. We took a day package which included welcome drink, lunch, karoke, bullock cart riding, pottery making and other games like tyre rolling, boomerang, cycling, milking the cow etc. It was a unique experience because of the sort of activities in the package. It is... More

This review is long long overdue. We visited "Native Village" during December 2013 for two nights and had a lovely, memorable and enriching experience. A big thanks to all the staff (Purnima, Ravi, kitchen staff, Nagamma, Manjunath, gardener, and a bunch of others) who went out of the way to make our stay comfortable and also to the owner Mr....

Thank you so much for your detailed review. Not many guests take time off like you did to write so much about us. I particularly liked that fact that you had suggestions for us along with all that went right. You are right - we are not for all guests. we are for those who miss and appreciate the simplicity...

So goes an old English saying, and that's what you need to do. An overpriced alternative, with a run-down look. The food was "oily", very unlike what an average villager would use although the spread is sumptuous. Very friendly staff, particularly catering.

Dear Buchu. Thank you for taking the time off to write a review on us. I feel bad that you did not enjoy all aspects of our place. Unfortunately when a typical urban resident looks at us though typical urban eyes, we will seem run down. It is because we use natural materials every where from our construction to the... More

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

Dear Deepak Bachu. I truly appreciate that fact that you were so mature n our assessment. Yes aspects that need to improve will definitely be looked into by us - especially if you felt some staff were unfriendly! We did have some inconsistency with our spa company and this has been corrected. The pool is definitely usable!! But I can... 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
