Just cannot begin to describe the horrors of our trip (13-15 Aug) Cons: 1) Pathetic food - I just can't start and end to describe how unpalatable the food was. To be honest, it made me cringe and cry whenever it was eating time 2) Slowest ever service in the history of hospitality, boiled eggs would take 25 mins to... More

You will start enjoying the resort right from Bandipur Entrance if you are coming from Mysore as you will spot lot of animals on your way. Remember not to stop anywhere at any cost. Coming to the resort, neat and clean rooms, food is good provided you specify your food preference as they cook for every guest at the resort.... More

I spent there three days (2 nights) at the end of June 2016. This is trully a paradise. So relaxing place, beautifully situated into the nature. And when talking about nature, I mean real nature: elephants, tigers, sambas, monkeys, deers, boars can be seen just few metres from your room. Very tasty food, friendly service, in comparisson to other resorts... More

The drive to the location is vert scenic considering that you pass Bandipur and then move into Madulmalai. You get to see a few animals on the drive and the road is... More

Nicely done up place, very intune with the nature with a great view and many deer to be sighted right from your room window. Ambiance is amazing and the staff are also very polite and responsive. Wonderful place in between Ooty and Masinagudi allowing quick and easy transport between the locations and completely enjoy everything.
