This is one place that offers you the opportunity to unwind either by doing no activity or a lot of it depending upon what helps you unwind. However, first thing first, this was our first trip with our dog, in fact, this trip was planned for our dog. Man, are we glad we chose Hunkal Wood. They are extremely pet... More

We are a cycling group from Bangalore (Cadence90) who keep exploring places on bicycles. This time we decided to visit this place after we read some nice reviews. We were not at all disappointed. In fact this place exceeded out expectation. People here are so friendly and they make you feel at home. Food is extraordinary. Cheers to Nandan and... More

An ancient home rebuilt and made into a 'tucked in the lap of nature' estate in the beautiful hills of chikmagalur surrounded by a huge coffee estate and beautiful wilderness . . . Was there a week back with friends. We selected it because of its pet friendly policy. . .and that's not just technicality but in true spirit .... More

The place is pretty good a bit over priced I would say for the food they offer,more of a veg places. Meat lovers "AVOID" this place. The places to visit around the place is just a waste of time and priced high as well not worth paying so much

I generally prefer to write positive reviews, but this negative one is worth doing, so other travellers are clear in advance about what they will get. First the positives. The location and setting are great. Our dog was welcome. The staff are friendly. But...the "simple" heritage bungalow was shabby and not-cared-for, to the point that it was depressing. We had...

Hi Prith!? I'm unfamiliar with your choice of music, sexual position or kind of holiday but if there is a scathing review in the midst of so many good ones you certainly have my eye. Let's just agree with you on every aspect just so we don't have whiney guests. Hunkalwoods is amidst nature and outdoors unparalleled in the western... More

If you are looking for an amazing 'disconnect from the world, reconnect with nature' weekend, Hunkal is the place to go. We were looking for a family getaway for the Gandhi Jayanti long weeked last year and constantly worried about what we'd do with our lil labbie. I then chanced upon this place in a review by a friend, who... More

Hunkal Woods is a charming pet friendly option for those wanting to do a vacation within driving distance of Bangalore. No cellphone coverage, no TVs, no radio, no newspapers - it's a great place to unwind and forget about the pressure of city life. Set amidst a beautiful wooded and green coffee plantation and forest, the staff are only to... More

I came across Hunkal woods when I was scouting for a place to visit for a long weekend. I was sending out emails to multiple home stays in Chikmagalur and Shaklepura. There was one response that was very different from the usual dry and largely matter-of-fact responses from most property owners. It is not everyday that you get an extremely... More

Good place to relax. Very helpful, smiling staff. Excellent homely food. Beautifully maintained Bungalow. Clean rooms. Overall a great place, a home away from home. But outdoor maintenance is bad, needs to be improved.

An excellent homestay located in between the coffee plantations. Surrounded by greenery and a perfect view of the western ghats. Excellent service, food and hospitality. A perfect get away for family and friends. Very courteous staff. Strongly recommend to visit this place. You have the entire bungalow if you are travelling more than 8-10 ppl. Its like a home away...
