My husband and I like to take both unplanned and planned holidays; weekend trips are mostly planned max two days in advance. The frantic search for a beautiful and affordable property really sets us in a Friday mood by wednesday :).

This place is part of a large coffee estate on the banks of the Bhadra river. The accommodation is in stilted cottages which are environmentally friendly. Behind each cottage is a balcony overlooking the river. Since we were there in the monsoon season, the river was in spate and it was a pleasure spending time in the balcony enjoying the... More

We visited this place on 19th Apr and stayed for 2 days. The place is an absolute delight. We had booked a glass house. From the balcony, you can see the serene Bhadra river. You can hear the sound of the river and nothing else. If you are looking for a relaxing trip, nothing relaxes you than this. It is... More

"Good place to hang out with friends " The resort is on the banks of Bhadra river in between a 60 acre coffee plantation. They have different kind of rooms e.g log huts, glass house, mud house etc. You will get the best view from Glass house. All rooms are quite spacious and decent facility. They have activities like swimming,... More

Beautiful resort for nature lovers, but its almost 40+ kms from Chikmanglur and around 2 kms off main road. Amidst coffee plantation, its breezy with beautiful view, hospitable staff and rustic cottages, but there is no AC (& it gets hot in the afternoon!). They do not clean the room daily, food is quite average (& you don't have any... More
