One of my friend suggested me this home stay. Initially we were reluctant for a stay over here, thinking its a home stay, we wont get any privacy. But it was other way round, it was a homely stay.

Probably one of the best places to stay near Jog Falls - only about 10 km from the Falls. A basic B&B with clean and nice rooms. Nice new bathrooms (except for the lack of shower curtains). Mesh on the windows would have been nice, so that you could open the windows at night without being bothered my mosquitoes. But,...

Please note that this is not a resort (as mentioned in some reviews) We had taken a room in the east bungalow. There are cottages as well but expensive. Rooms are spacious, neat. Bathroom fittings are all new and good. There is...

We had a pleasant stay at Matthuga Resort (43 of us) on 15/16th October. The resort is located in a very lush green field with natural habitat. The food was top class and hospitality of the staff excellent. The rate is also within one's budget. Overall, it was a nice experience and we felt very homely. .

We have recently visited JOG and booked Matthuga home stay. This is by no stretch of imagination a home stay. Its a Lodge. They don't offer even complimentary breakfast. We were 6 people and booked 2 rooms. They provided an extra mattress which we didn't ask for and charged 1500 extra for them. Very unprofessional guys. I wouldn't recommend this...
