Looking for a break from the mundane job and hectic life schedule I decided to take a break and started exploring holiday options. A friend of mine suggested Banasura and I was wondering if its the right choice. I was skeptical even as I took the long winding road up the resort and I thought I will be disappointing my... More

We stayed here over the long weekend. The overall look of the resort is fine, but it seems that the resort is being run on minimal needs. During checkin we were told 3-4 times to call the room service for any need, however to my surprise there was no room service available. For even a cup of good coffee or... More

We stayed at this property for a single night stay on a long weekend. We reached here from Masinagudi using Ooty-Sultan Bathery route which was also scenic. The resort is secluded and therefore drive to resort is a different experience. The USP of the resort is grand view of Banasura hill which refreshes you. We stayed in earth rooms which... More

Just finished a stay at Banasura hill resort with my wife. It has one of the exemplary eco architectures i have ever seen. The resort is built completely using pressed mud and thatched roofs.

The villas are excellent, the mud walls make it quite cool even in the peak of summer. No A/c's but the other facilities are top notch. The service is good and much better than typical indian hill resorts. The access road is a bit terrifying. There isnt much to do in the resort, the campfire and activities really need improvement....

Well let me start by saying this is a resort which is great place to stay, provided you know the rules. Let me go to my usual style. Here are the pros and cons PROS 1. As the title suggests its truly in the lap of nature. The Vilas are standalone and there is stone paths connecting them 2. Absolutely... More

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
