This resort is wonderful. Nice place to stay with family. Food is also good. Really worth for our money. If anybody visits Chikamagalur straight away book this spectrum resort. Me and my family had a very good time here and most of the tourist spots are near to this. The location of the resort is in middle of the reserve forest means coffee plantation estate.

Thank You Mr.Manjunath & Jayapradha Madam...

We just returned from our trip to Chikmaglur. Our stay at Spectrum was simply the BEST. The location is in the midst of coffee plantation estate owned by the Spectrum. Mr.Manjunath is of immense help in planning your trip in and around Chikmaglur. The beautiful surroundings of the place and best quality food served are excellent. Very peaceful and calm location and we famiky of four enjoyed our stay immensely. ALL the important site seeing points are nearby from this location. It is advised to take/hire a four wheeler . Thanks to Mr.Manjunath & Jaya madam.

Room Tip: All rooms are quite good. Front rooms are best.

People who are looking for a quick vaccation time ....here is a place you must visit.I visited this place last week along with my friends and I had an awesome time . The climate is soothing ,the place is full of energy , the rooms are airy and comfortable and on top of that the food was amazing. Although the place is located 10kms away from the main city they provide all the needful stuff.The service is great and the people around there are very humble.The view of the place where the resort is located is out of this world.You will be seeing clouds all around. Mullayangiri, a nearby place is also very beautiful.We had the time of our lives and I would suggest that you too would feel the same once you visit this place.

We 14 members stayed in Spectrum from Oct 18th to Oct 20th. Our stay was just awesome and one should not give a second thought about this. I have listed some of my feedbacks for the others benefit.

1. Homestay is in between the coffee estate. Very pleasant stay. Easy access to all the tourist places. They make our stay more memorable.
2. Excellent & unlimited food with wonderful taste. Believe me we ate double.
3. Very kind and polite owner (Manjunath) for him guest's satisfaction is more than money.
4. Nice staff who always there to serve best and they never say NO for anything we ask.
5. Spacious rooms with good ambience and very clean.
6. Only place where we get more than what promissed and whatever we see in their website.
7. Place where we get more than our expectation.
8. They won't compromise the service & facility for money.
9. Easy booking process and they provide all the information of homestay without hiding anything.
10. On completion of stay, we feel like the money we paid them is less for the kind of service they provided.

Thanks to Manjunath, Jayaprada & their staff for making our stay most memorable.

Regards,
Shrini

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. Roof top may be little more cold.
