Firstly don't get fooled thinking this is Chikmagalur, this place is almost 90kms away from Chikmagalur. The last 15 kms to this place will take you 1 hr to cover as its a ghat section. If you are travelling from Bangalore please keep aside 7 hours to reach this place. You cannot go here if you don't have your own... More

Firstly you would find this the only place available when all others have been booked. That means none prefers it . Its around 80 kms from Chikmagalur. You cant go out if you are here. The place is very small and theres nothing to do there. The rooms dont look like what they show in website. No indoor and outdoor... More

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
