The hotel is near kokkare bellur, the drive was fantastic except for a couple of km before reaching the destination. The stay was pleasant and the staff were friendly. Food quality and taste could have been better. For a small price, it was really an exciting stay. Alcohol is not served in the hotel and you need to carry it... More

The hospitality and the natural calmness moved us. The cottages, the garden, swimming pool, and the natural environment can definitely drag people more than once. More than that, it is a wonderful place for kids, where the garden is left natural with the flora and fauna intact.

One would wonder what kind of a resort it will be. When the gates were opened and we drove the car inside, the picture was different. This is a... More

A little hidden gem. If one is looking for a quiet get away this is the place. The staff are very hospitable. Especially the Manager Mr Manje Gowda. A little bit more attention from the management to maintenence especially cleanliness of the bathroom and swimming pool will do wonders. Important tip: Ask for the local cuisine - they are really...

This is a good resort saying what they have and having what they say. The best part is there are no false promises. It is quite comfortable stay and the facilities are limited but with the money. The main attraction is the swimming pool. Though it is not gigantic, it is reasonably well maintained and good recreation especially with family.... More
