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

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.

The road leading to the Woods is full of Coffee estates and it just makes you feel calmer. The surroundings are simply beautiful and the staff is very... More

It is a beautifully maintained colonial bungalow with 3 bedrooms. There... More
