Banasura is your ideal weekend getaway if you are looking for quiet retreat in God's own country. Spacious Earth rooms are well-equipped and offer total relaxation. An eco-friendly resort, Banasura has rooms that are cool and act as a perfect antidote to your summer woes. Food was decent and staff was warm; albeit, customer service can definitely be improved.

Banasura is an eco resort that is built with rammed mud, located close to the Banasura dam which is considered to be the largest earth dam in India. We used this resort as a base camp to explore Wayanad. Is this a wise thing to do, I am sure detractors would be plenty especially when you need to drive up... More

Banasura Hill Resort markets itself as a nature resort, which is truly is: surrounded by acres of greenery, the resort is quiet and isolated. Travelers looking for days filled with activities are best to look elsewhere; the pace here is very slow and not every activity listed on the website is available every day (Chembra Peak trekking was closed for...

Down in the forest something green? Banasura Hill Resort is hidden away near Banasura Dam. Hidden is the operative word, since finding the place among the minor roads of the district is a challenge. Our driver had not been to the resort before. There are no direction signs that we could see, and the directions given over the mobile were... More

Dear DazOnWheels, Thank you for staying in Banasura Hill Resort and loving it! Building structures using mud excavated from the very site that it stands on, is not only a stunning example of the immence possibilities of rammed earth architecture, but also a glowing tribute to vernacular construction methods where you touch, feel and smell mud in all its natural...

The construction of this resort was fully done with mud, clay and laterite stones. Even though the independent cottages were supported by laterite stones, its main building, where the office, reception and 20 rooms were positioned, stood testimony to a successful experiment with mud. This huge structure thatched with coconut leaves, marks Banasura as Asia’s largest mud resort. The roomy... More

Dear prathamatic Thank you for staying with us at Banasura during Monsoon. It's true that during monsoon you will see the green pastures at its best, the waterfalls thundering and the streams brimming full with water.
