“EASY WAY TO HEAVEN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Had visited this place in december. However just remembered of writing this review on how much we enjoyed at this place. We went upto train to Mangalore and taxi was available there for pick-up who first took us for a breakfast and then a 2.5 hr journey to the resort. Was tiring and hot when we reached the resort but the resort looked refreshingly beautiful once we reached there. Our overall stay was very pleasant. All meals were very good and especially the fresh fruit juices were simply refreshing. The beach was clean and simply beautiful. Was really a great fun we had there and would really like to go there again sometime..

The property is tucked away quite literally in wild woods. The whole ambience will make you forget all your worries and will transport you to a world filled with bird noises and lush greenary.
The place is a sight to behold and mere words will not be able to describe the true magnificance of the place. We just didn't want the days to get over and on our way back started to plan for our next visit to the place.

Food:
All three meals of the day are buffet and are included in the original booking amount. My personal opinion on this was that maybe the food will be passable and will do to pass the day and maybe they will be having something extra for which they will charge. How wrong i was. The food was simply mind blowing. We easily had 3-4 servings of each meal and stopped only because we simply couldn't eat more. Hats off to the chef for serving such mouth watering delicacies.

Hospitality:
Everyone you met had a welcoming smile on their face. The management always went out of therr way to make us feel at home and were available to answer all our queries. I felt that the people were truly in the hospitality business because they actually felt passionately about it rather for the financial benefit. They even allowed us to stay for half a day extra without charging a single penny just because our ticket back home was on a late night bus and they didn't have anyone coming in.

Ambience:
Orchids and a river. Two words I felt could summarize a whole passage. The sweet tasting nectar of orchids, which I accidently chanced upon had me hooked for the entire stay (No flowers were harmed in the process). The river that flows inside the resort is clean and one can simply dive in for a swim.

Thank you Wild Woods Resort for making our stay special. We will be back soon.

"Wild Woods" has really blown our mind away. Nestled amidst nature, its truly a paradise. The resort has lovely gardens, varieties of fish, birds etc. The guests are treated royally & the food was excellent. All in all it is a great place to unwind & rejuvenate. We left the resort wishing we should have planned to stay on for a couple of more days. We will definitely plan to visit "Wild Woods" again in the near future.

We found this place through Tripadvisor, this is a great resort if your planning to take a break from the busy city life, its beautiful. Nature nature and nature... it's on the banks of a river. they have two properties, opposite to each other... we wished we could stay here for couple of days more.. the food was delicious.. i loved herbal idlis and kothmir chutney... it's was super yum... the rooms are ok.. comfortable... we stayed in bamboo cottage (you'll find insects..)... should have stayed in stone cottage.. the hospitality tops everything. the owner personally took care of kitchen and every small detail... its a must visit place if you are visiting karnataka,,, It's beautiful for photographer.. everywhere you look you find something to click...

don't forget to ask for directions before you start, it's a very tough place to find especially at night.. the boards are very badly placed.. we almost crossed the turning near the checkpost.. hope they do something about it..

Room Tip: Stone cottage... bamboo cottage has small insects :-|

Dear YashuK

Thank you for having stayed with us & for the wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay & the food & we look forward to having you back with us in the near future. Regarding the insects we would like to clarify that being in a natural forest environment there are abundant insects in the open. However all our rooms have fixed nets on all windows & ventilators to stop insects from coming in. However very often the guests keep the cottage door open & this could possibly lead to an insect or two getting attracted indoors. Please note that there is no difference between the bamboo cottage & stone cottage except in the materials used for finishing. As a policy we do not use pesticides or do fogging due to the ill effects of the same on the ecology. Housekeeping checks all rooms in the evening during turndown service and removes any insects. We have also installed some LED lights in the riverside decks which are now attracting the bees & insects away from the cottages. Birds and bats are natural insect killers & keep a control on their population.

As regards the sign board, since it is placed alongside a highway, very often the view gets blocked by the trucks which also park there. We obviously cant shift the board since it is at the turn off nor can we control the parking of the trucks / buses etc. We are just adding some more boards on either side of the turn off which would let our guests know how far they are from the turn off. If required we even send our person to the highway to meet the guest & guide them in.

Henceforth, when tourists crowd Goa, Goans will head to the 'Wild Woods'. If you're looking to unplug from the chaos that is urban life, then this is the place to rejuvenate and leave the rat race behind. My children loved the river trek, ample garden space, visit to the nearby rubber plantations and food. My wife and I enjoyed the Ayurvedic massage treatment. The staff was efficient and made our stay comfortable. The room was clean and the view is unbeatable. Every corner and turn around the property nudges you towards nature and greenery. The food is 5 star quality and the menu changes daily....i'm looking to unplug and come back soon!
