Picturesque! This is the first word that comes to mind when you get the first glimpse of the property. This is beautifully done property and well managed by able staff that is always courteous & helpful. What moved us is the simplicity, selfless service and no monetary expectation. When we tried to offer some tip to one of the staff... More

Banasura promised a lot, with its unique earthen design and claims to being an 'eco resort'. However, the main highlight was the beautiful waterfall within easy walking distance of the hotel, where a dip in the plunge pool is a wonderful treat. In fact, the price for staying at the Resort is not true to the quality of the experience... More

While we had a nice time it was by no means what we anticipated. The staff were all friendly and helpful but beyond this, this resort flatters to deceive. It certainly has potential but all the little touches one would expect at this price were missing. The mud rooms were interesting but cavernous and dark - very difficult to even... More

Undoubtedly amazing place. At first, the road which leads to the resort was a little put off. But once we got in, it was amazing. It was evening when we reached and clouds kissing the mountains was absolutely breath taking. We had opted for the independent suite rooms. It was extremely cool, spacious, and the views were completely covered with... More
