Traveled between 15Aug and 17Aug this year. Resort is maintained well and covered with green. Nice place to stay with good service and local cuisine to test. Though couple of issues for family with kids. Most of the items in lunch/dinner are prepared with too much of chili and difficult for kids to eat. Should have been some items specially... More

A gorgeous location and a tastefully designed and well maintained resort. The most impressive part is the superb customer service. The staff always tried to accommodate every request and never refused anything. This place is not really for those travelers who like to spend their vacation sightseeing but more for those who love to lounge around the resort eating great... More

I stayed with family during the month of June when entire Wayanad was awaiting rain. The rooms are so comfortable and we never felt going out even to the restaurant. This aspect indicates the level of comfort the mud construction can really provide. All are non-Ac rooms and cottages giving maximum comfort even during the thick of summer. There are... More

We spent 2 nights in Banasura Hill Resort. It was an awesome experience. The winding up-hill roads leading to the resort was a challenge on its own.

The resort, the place, the people, the staff. Everything was immaculate! As you enter the resort, you are astounded by the sheer beauty of it, with the backdrop of the Banasura Hill. We went in Monsoons (End of July), and you could see the numerous waterfalls on the Hill. Sheer beauty. The checkin was smooth, the room was clean and... More

Where shall I start...... We came for a weekend getaway to unwind and Bansura Hill resort was a perfect destination. The place is secluded that helps avoid all the noise of the city.

Set against the bewitching backdrop of the Banasura Hill, this resort is for the discerning traveler who looks for a more enriching experience than a mere vacation. Your holiday in Kerala will be incomplete without spending quality time at this luxurious eco-resort that places as much importance on taking care of the environment as it places on taking care of its guests.At Banasura, the emphasis is on providing that little extra care that makes every guest feel pampered. The attention that Banasura Hill Resort pays to detail is evident in every aspect of hospitality, from the courteous but unobtrusive staff, to the quality of the furnishings and fixtures and the authenticity of the cuisine. What Banasura offers you is an aura of luxury and comfort in a resort that is small enough to be intimate and homely, but spacious and expansive enough to let you feel absolutely unconfined.Constructed using earth architecture, the resort has a unique rustic look, yet offers the best in luxury and comfort, and is truly "Heaven made of Earth."Come to this luxurious, romantic hideout for a holiday to remember. ... more   less
