We were looking for a destination which can offer tranquility rather than activities. From Bangalore we had choices like chikmangalore, Madikdei Mysore etc but after some deliberations with our friends we decided to venture into Bekal, a new destination for us. It took approx. 8 hours for us to reach Bekal via Madikeri. We enjoyed our drive to since we wanted to experience nature.
We stayed nirvana in end of October. We had booked a luxury room well in advance. While booking we were little skeptical about Nirvana since some reviews were there particularly about AC issues. But after speaking to their management, we had decided to go ahead with our booking.
True to its caption Nirvana is located close to Fort and Beach. A decent property with great location advantage. Room was comfortable and neat. There was no AC problems as feared since they have installed a new Transformer to cater the electricity issues. Food was good particularly non vegetarian items but service was bit slow. This property can be made more beautiful if some proper landscaping is done.
We spent 2 days in Bekal. Beach near to Nirvana is virgin and close to Bekal fort. Another good vantage point is Bekal beach park which is just 1km from Nirvana. A shallow beach with playing equipments …. A nice place for beach activities, particularly for kids. Icon of bekal is historic Bekal fort which is very near to Nirvana. A 300 year old Fort overlooking sea …..an enthralling experience to watch.
Overall we had a satisfying stay particularly for our kids….. actually they enjoyed beach activities more ……
