Photographer's delight .Mr kashi the owner of the home stay takes care of the best hospitality .... The river and the artificial rain in the river is... More

The resort is really nice and beautiful. The rooms have very basic amenities but really good. Enjoyed going for bird watching early morning. Moreover really liked the hospitality of the owner. He makes all his guests feel at home. He himself took us for bird watching and to some other nearby places and guided about all those places. Would definitely... More

I stayed in SOJ during May month. It was around 3 years back, but my memories are still afresh. This was one of my best trips ever in India. We were a group of 7 adults and 5 kids. We thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Kashinath's hospitality which is beyond words. It seemed as if we were his family guests and not... More

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
