An adorable family, a gorgeous surrounding, the most impressive peacefulness you could imagine, no network (and almost no electricity), a delicious cuisine, wild animals, only three bungalows, all different and with a special touch (one is a machan, perched in a tree!). An unforgettable experience that really recharged our batteries (but you'll have to deal with your fear of insects!... More

Finally went to this place in Jan 2013 after wanting to go there for a couple of years and it was worth the wait. Its a great place if you dont mind creepies and crawlies but one has to realise that we are encroaching on their habitat. The whole place is done up really well and you cant ask for... More

I am a city person and was persuaded by a friend to go to the Hermitage. I was delighted. The place is in the middle of nowhere and you will need to arrange for someone to collect you. The power goes off regularly and the rooms are basic, but the food, conversation and general ambiance more than makes up for... More

The guesthouse is situated amongst farmland and forest and is several kilometres from the nearest town. The owners have taken a lot of care in the design and maintenance of the rooms and common areas, and it is a lovely spot to relax. We stayed with two kids and they enjoyed the variety of wildlife around (frogs, spiders, snakes and... More

I came across The Hermitage while looking for offbeat places in India and immediately knew I wanted to go there! I'm glad I did. The last 3-4 km leading up to The Hermitage are literally through the forest on a dirt road, with no street lights & no signs - kind of prepping you for what's to come. We stayed... More

My husband and i stayed at the hermitage guest house (45 km from belgaum) in early May 2012. Have to say this one was a real find! While the rest of India was reeling under the summer heat, at the hermitage guest house it felt more like november weather. We chose to stay in the cottage that was fully electrified... More
