I think the title speaks about my experience at Amara homestay. As a first timer, I was awestruck with the experience. I just wanted a decent stay between Pune and Bangalore for my family where we can take some rest and chill out. But I was totally amazed by the property and their hospitality. Property: The property is well inside the Tiger reserve ( i think its the only one which is this deep inside the jungle ). Great for bird watching; we could hear all different bird species every time during the stay. We saw a herd of around 15 deer in their backyard which was an amazing experience. Cannot miss star gazing where you wont believe how much you can see with your naked eyes. Hospitality: The highlight of this place is their hospitality and food. In our stay we were the only first timers staying there. Many people visit 3 to 4 times a year and even more. They serve vegetarian food, but it is so delicious. You will just come for food for your next stay. The host Ajit hegde is so helpful in every way. He knows every nooks of the jungle and spots which are not very commercial. No issues at all during the stay. The rooms are decent, but i think it is complementary with the food. Five plus stars for everything. A must visit place when in Dandeli. Definitely visiting again!!

Heavenly place and great people! I am thankful to Mr.Ajit and his family for providing organic, fresh and tasty south kanadda food!! It was delicious and none of the menu got repeated. The place is just awesome to stay! This is made for those who are finding peace. The rooms are basic and has all required facilities! Surrounded with fresh and aromatic flowers! We loved the nature walk. Thank you Mr.Ajit and family!😊

A one of a lifetime experience which I would like to repeat again and again. First of all let me tell you all, I am not a good writer, or else by this time the tours that I had made with my wife would have been counted in some bestseller :). To start with, let me tell you something, I am a hardcore non-veg eater, so when I saw this property, I was in dilema that whether should I book it or leave it, but when I spoke with the owner, only one sentence that confirmed my booking was 'Sir, just give it atry of our veg foods, I can assure you, you will forget Non-Veg' and to my surprise, a person like me, loved the veg food so much that even after getting a chance of having non-veg food at Dandeli, I refused and came back to have their Veg food. To give a small brief about the place, just in middle of Dandeli core area (Kali Tiger Reserve), you can enjoy the beauty of nature and as there is no mobile network but only Wi-Fi, so you can have your peace of mind. A relaxing weekend gateway, lots of places to see, which they will guide you, good, healthy, tasty food which nourishes not your body but soul. A place I would always love to visit again and again and again. Must reccomended for people who are looking for peace and nature. Coming to the hospitality of the owner, a never ever forgoten. Thanks a lot Hegde family for making this trip a memorable one. Will visit again for sure.

Me & my husband stayed at Amara from 13-16th April 2022. It was a great experience. We loved every single bit of Amara… it’s location, ambiance, people & the food… it has all the flavours… Amara’s Ajit Hegde… very energetic, competent n ever-smiling young fellow..from him we got to know so many interesting facts about the jungle…birds, trees, Ayurveda & so on & on… his parents, wife n supporting people.. all r equally good in their work. We would love to visit them again especially for the food… We had recommended this place to all our social circles. Thank you all of you at Amara for making our stay so comfortable n memorable…we did not even realise that we had no mobile network there😂

Namaste from Amara Homestay Dandeli. It was our pleasure to serve you. As you mentioned we have provided subsidised rate for other guests is coz as a homestay owner from last 16 years we have contacts, so whenever guests "asks" us about the activity we can suggest them. But in your case you wanted to do your own things, while you reached our homestay you have already finished activities. We cannot force anyone to do activities, whenever someone asks, then only we can suggest. Thank you please visit again.

Amara Homestay-- Just go for it....... Don't think so much you will get complete satisfaction. But one thing water sports at Ganeshgudi is 30-35 km away from Gund, but travel on bike was awesome. Morning breakfast-5/5 Afternoon Lunch-5/5 Evening snaks- 5/5 Dinner-5/5 Kokam Sharbat/Bramhi Chaas-5/5 All food was homemade by Ajit's Family. Uncle,Ajit and family, Rajesh, Uday were honest, helpful, attentive. Rooms were clean. It was like close relative home for me.

Excellent place and wonderful people who provide great stay and excellent village kind ambience who wish to stay away from city life for few days. To talk about their food I just became their fan it truly made me realise the traditional karnataka vegetarian food and their way of communicating with the people is so good and friendly. I will recommend this place for people who are planning to go to dandeli and spend some time.
