Hampi's Boulders is a great retreat. It is quiet and pretty. The staff are friendly and effective, and the food is very good. It tries to be an eco-resort, which it mostly achieves by its setting - simple cottages set out amongst an amazing scenery of sand, rocks, boulders and river. It misses the mark on a few points, such... More

Middle class Hampi dilemma. You are beyond the backpacker fray in what's left of Hampi Bazaar or across the river in Virupapur. You don't want to stay in a characterless Hospet hotel despite the vastly superior dining options. Hampi's Boulders may well be the answer you are looking for but, whilst being clean and atmospheric (unlike Hampi itself), it's not... More

Hampi's Boulder a part of Bobby Resort in Basapur Village is an out of the world place to be experienced to believe such properties exist in India. It is built on 40 Acres. Not advertised it is not known to many. Most guests are foreigners who share their experience once back in their county. This place is difficult to locate... More

If you're visiting Hampi this is a very nice place to stay. Away from the crowds. Very attentive staff. Excellent food. A pleasant rock swimming pool. A lot of wild life around the gardens. Very much enjoyed our stay.

We spent five magical nights here and could not the fault the service, the food, the accommodation and the stunning setting. After days exploring the amazing temples of Hampi and the buzzing village, it was lovely to return to our beautiful cottage, have a dip in the natural pool and then watch the sunset over the amazing landscape and river...

If you are making the trek to see the wonderful Hampi site, don't want to stay hours away from it and are keen on a modicum of comfort then this charming resort is the answer. Most of the rooms are self contained cottages designed to blend into the fantastically rocky landscape, and all located at a good distance from each... More

Amazing place in the nature.... You can walk around for hours and swim in the river ... All is very preserved since the owner is a nature worshipper ! Rooms have been refurbished and painted recently. Some have a wonderful view (sun suites for ex) and you can sit in the terrace contemplating for hours . Some rooms have outside... More

It is truly a yin yang! The physical location is stunning. You expect to see a dinosaur come around the corner at any time. The cottage we had was called Otter, not one overlooking the river but lovely none the less. We had monkeys, birds and maybe an otter but no one who worked there knew what it was and... More
