Unbelievably good food, superb location, good hosts, neat cottages. Proximity to nearby places like kuppali (kavishyla is a must visit), chibbalgudde, Bheemana katte, Mahishi, Agumbe, Kundadri (sunset views) is a big plus point.

The host took care to serve a variety of homely malnad cuisine. Outdoor activities are good to keep the visitors engaged. There is a space for cycling, cricket, basketball, badminton, etc. Roads to all surrounding tourist spots are good (Kevempu, Ganesha temple, Agumbe, River Bank, etc.). We travelled from Bangalore via Neelamangala-Channarayanapatna-Arsikere-Shimoga-Thirthahalli route. The road condition was very good except... More

Its a cozy homestay more like a resort. Food is typical malnad style. Do not expect north Indian food to be served here. We enjoyed activities such as cycling, badminton , cricket and trekking.Rooms are a little small but overall it was good experience.

Resort is placed in dense forest and rooms are placed in unique way just within perimeter of resort. Hotel staff and location is good but cleanliness can be improved. Food quality is good enough and provides warm experience to stay with friends and family.
