I have been here on official visit but would love to go there with my husband. It's a beautiful resort with every possible luxury at your service. The resort is very well maintained and the food is awesome.
The best feature is that they have small pools inside some rooms. The location is good to enjoy nature, but is very far from main city. Its a must visit place for couples.

I've been to Aalankrita on 06 Aug 2012 on my wedding anniversary. Though it was a pleasant experience in the resort, i received a big jolt when my card was swiped twice in the restaurant. i did not carry my mobile on that day and couldnt check the message at the time of transaction. However when checked at home, the bill amount was swiped twice from my debit card.
I ended up calling the resort guys 5-10 times without any proper response and wasted all my time. Each timed i called them a diferent guy picked up and i had to explain the issue for each one of them. Everyone promised to call me back after an hour and no one did so. Someone said my money is gonna debited back into my account after their finall settlement in 2 days or 20 days.. Its been 2 months and not even a single rupee is debited back.
I stay in mysore and hence unable to go in person to settle the issue. This is a poor response from aalankrita and i feel cheated.

Dear Mr. Chakradhar ,

We appreciate your honest feedback about your experiences at our resort .

This should most certainly not have occurred and it is always a pity that an experience can be ruined by a billing issue. We do only charge our guests for the charges incurred during your stay and have no intention of retaining any funds incorrectly charged. I would value speaking directly with you on the matter in an effort to understand what has occurred and please accept my apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.

Kindly let me know the following
1.Your direct contact number .
2.Your mail id.
3.Which restaurant did you have your meal.
4.Which date was the debit card swiped.
5. Which number did you call on .

Awaiting details so as to take necessary action Asap.

Kindly note the matter has been escalated to the Executive Director.

I stayed at Alankrita as part of residential training program from office.I was sharing room with a colleague.The room was big and had twin beds.The staff at reception who allotted us room was neither efficient nor good mannered(Had a very long wait).But the housekeeping staff were prompt and sent a person to check within 10 minutes when we reported a problem with bathroom.The battery car driver became angry and was very rude when my colleague tried to take a picture with the vehicle.The rooms were clean,but bathroom towel had a stain, like grease.The premises are well maintained and beautiful.But you might want to take mosquito repellents if you want to go for a walk in the evenings.
They have a small pool,rather a big bathtub.Game zone is better with many options.Small, kids playing area ,with some swings and slides are also there.Overall I dont think it fits in to a 4* category.But it is suitable for those who want to get away from Hyderabad traffic and spent a weekend there.

Following the positive reviews on Trip Advisor our party of 12 booked a 3 night stay from 11th to 14th August. On arrival we were impressed with the well manicured gardens. The security situation is intrusive where you have to pass through a metal scanner every time you re-enter the complex. Your baggage is also thoroughly hand-searched. Our rooms were DISASTROUS. The musty smell that greets you is enough to want to make you throw up. I was sharing a room with another colleague and we had specifically requested two single beds. However, only on reaching our room were we told that the complex does not have single beds. I then requested an additional duvet and this request was also denied. On taking a shower (room 102), the entire bathroom flooded due to inadequate sealing. The next evening we requested another room as the flooding issue was not resolved. We were moved to room 108 at round 10:00pm. Here, there was no hot water. It took the complex TWO hours, and FOUR maintenance "technicians" to tells that they could not restore hot water. The room was also plagued by DOZENS of mosquitoes. We were then moved AGAIN to room 102 as they were not allowed to upgrade us to a better room. There is also a major language barrier as key service staff do not understand a word of English. The outdoor dining areas are also mosquito-infested. I must also mention being overcharged on our beverage bill by the outdoor dining buffet restaurant.All in all, in my opinion, the 4-star grading is certainly not justified. I have since realized that all the positive comments about this resort on Trip Advisor have been by the Locals and are very misleading to seasoned international travelers who may be more au-fait with the hotel grading structure.
