Skanda is (or was) a beautiful property, and great fun activities like badminton and volleyball. However, the maintenance is awful, with dirty carpets and bathrooms, stained tablecloths and a general feeling of neglect everywhere. The cook however is the only factor keeping this place going, as he turns our delicious meals. We also had to visit a nearby doctor as... More

Albeit peaceful but the place is far from the city. You can play badminton and volleyball on the two courts that they have. The manager said they have bonfire too but was unavailable as it was raining during the weekend. Madikeri is approx 45 mins away. Nearest ATM was ~9 KM.

A good weekend getaway option from Bangalore. Overall comfortable stay and very good food. Staff was very courteous and helpful. However, upkeep of the property was not to expected standards including rooms and linen. At the price point and available staff members - overall standard was expected to be much better. Also, location is too close to state highway leading... More

Amazing stay, Amazing food, nice nature walk into their coffee estate. I also made a early morning 100km drive into Nagarhole Forest and got amazing sightings and I have blogged here on that: "While at Coorg, Make this amazing Trip" http://wildtrails.in/while-at-coorg-make-this-amazing-nagarhole-drive/ Great Staff, Great Service - loved it. Only issue was that the Homestay itself is next to the Highway... More

This place is about at least 2 hours drive from madikeri. The surrounding is made up of plantations so it is a very quiet environment. We were a group of 9,guys and girls. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The food was good and the owner made sure to ask about our preferences.

We had the whole house to ourselves. we were three families with kids. we enjoyed our stay there. it is right next to the highway so the odd truck horn will be a distraction. The property is well located with nagerhole, irupu falls, dubare being nearby. The roads are not great from mysore. However, the roads in the kodagu district... More
