We recently visited Riverwoods and stayed in the cottage. The fun started right after we hit the Mangalore Highway. Riverwoods is about 50 kms from Chikmagalur and the journey through winding roads and lush greenery elevated our travel mood. We reached Riverwoods around lunch time and we were warmly ( Pun intended ! This place is warmer than Bangalore) received... More

This place is not worth for the money that you pay. 1) This place is nowhere near Chikmagalur town. So, if you are planning a visit to various attractions in and around Chikmagalur like Mullyanagiri, Baba Budan Hills, etc., you will end up spending most of your time inside your car travelling. Mullyanagiri is around 85 km away from Riverwoods.... More

The place is good. The property is well maintained, BUT, the food for vegetarians is pretty basic. I have visited home stays and resorts in Coorg, Wayanad and Ooty and so I tend to compare the prices. For the price paid by me (almost 7K between me, my wife and my son) at Riverwoods, the food is NOT what I... More

The trip was a very memorable one. The place is really good and the service is nice. The cooks prepare good food and are at your disposal. The manager is very helpful. Rooms are spacious and well maintained (bathrooms as well). The place is scenic in the midst of a coffee estate and adjacent to a river. Places like Agumbe,... More

OUR VISIT TO RIVERWOODS –IN THE LAP OF NATURE It was a rather quick decision of us to pick the Riverwoods Homestay at Magundi in close proximity to Chikmaglur.The scenic beauty enroute (from Bangalore ) and the lush green environs along the undulating roads was a visual delight. Riverwoods as the name indicates is abutting the Bhadra River and the... More
