Before I give my review on the place I was shocked to see a comment by one of the guest. I am surprised, how can a place/people change in a month time. I totally disagree with the review for the improvement on customer service. I went with my family for a weekend outing to chikmagalur and found this place as one of the most exciting place I visited in my recent past. We drove to the place in our maruthi waganor and it was a great experience in reaching the place. It takes around 5 hours from Bangalore if you know the route and carry the route map provided while booking. Last stretch to the place is really awesome and may be little difficult for the first time drivers.
As soon as we reached we were kindly received by the owner. The authenticate malnad style breakfast was waiting for us. The wooden cottages give a plus point to the place it is located at. We get a nice hill view from the gallery window and the dining hall as well. I really appreciate the effort the owners have taken to set up something like that. Though we cannot expect a star class set up but sure all the basic things are right in place. There was some construction going on the site which was little disturbing though. I believe it will complete soon and the place with the garden all around will become a heaven. Night campfire was at its best. It was like in a wonder land with the cool breeze. They do not allow loud music which will disturb the wild which is an awesome thought. The water falls in the estate is just unbelievable and it was a pleasant gesture of the owner who took us to the waterfalls as a guide. Really down to earth and gentleman. Altogether it was very nice outing. Not to miss on booking, the booking process is excellent.
Visiting in dec 2nd week.
