Had amazing experience staying there one night.Food quality and taste needs to improve. The cultural event was good. The bird watching activity was good, should improve with the safari. The spa experience is nice. Price is quite high at present. The rooms are great. Night was a bit scary since its inside jungle.

Gorukana experience was very good, we spent one night at the resort. The resort is nestled among very tall trees and all the cottages are facing a valley. The rooms have mezzanine floor with the bedding which is unique and gives a different feel. The bed and rooms are clean and spacious. Food is good, do not expect a large...

Gorukana 's location is right below the Biligiriranganatha Swamy temple amidst real forest land. It is in fact a short uphill walk to the temple. Wild Boars, deer and the occasional elephant (or herd) wade through in close vicinity and sometimes right next to your cottages! This place is run entirely by locals or Soligas who are excellent hosts. They...

As if you are absolutely inside the jungle, with occasional spotting spotted deer & wild boar, varieties of Bird & butterflies. In the night when the wind blows, the sound of the bamboo groves made you feel "you are in jungle". Beautiful cottages, the upper deck is real great place to hang around with your buddies. Sip your morning tea...
