Quick getaway from Bangalore on a long weekend. Serene place next to the river. Free "fish spa" with the fish nibbling at your feet if you dip your feet in the river. Nice malnad food, great host. We didn't really do much there except visit a nearby waterfall and the fish feeding session. On the flip side, this is not... More

I stayed at this place with my wife for 3 nights beginning May 8th. This is an absolutely refreshing experience for those who like the homestay experience. Only 20 kms from Dharmasthala, good access, and a fantastic location for stay. Key highlights for those interested: -has 4 cottages; 10X10 dimension (3 beds in each) -no AC, but has power full...

This was the second time we had gone there. I went with my husband first time in 2010 and this time with my best friend and her family including a kid. Nothing has changed since then. You just re-juvinate yourself amidst nature and end up forgetting the entire world. A free fish pedicure happens if you care to dip your... More

We visited with our 1.2 years old baby and our parents. Amazing location, wonderful host and great food. The host Kashinath was very helpful. We needed additional help in terms of making babies food and boiling her milk bottles. Our host was very accommodating to all our requirements. We did the bamboo raft ride and river water shower, great experience.... More

First the positives. The resort is located on the banks of the River Kapila. The cottages are also on the banks. Inside the cottages the rooms and toilets are clean and neat - although not very modern. The walls could do with a coat of paint. The host - Mr.Kashinath Damle was a very pleasant host. He took us around... More

"Serene" is the word that personifies this place. A tributary of the river "Nethravati" flows right through the middle of this estate. Hence the name"Stream of joy". The place inundates you with joy. The drive from bangalore is a challenge. After hassan, its all ghats. But fatigue will refrain from troubling once you reach the home stay. We stayed over... More

If you miss having any cousins or relatives in the malnad/western ghats, you need not regret, this is the go-to place for you!! :) Cottages along the river-front, amidst areca nut plantations with thick greenery all around you, a small island right across the river where thousands of chirping birds awaken you every morning and add to this an absolutely...
