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... More

The location is simply excellent -a short drive from Bangalore makes it an ideal weekend getaway The resort itself is quaint, separate cottages with a sit out, tea maker, hot water, make it a comfortable nest away. The tree house is a lovely delight! The dining area is surrounded by trees and makes a dreamy atmosphere.they serve 4 buffet meals-and... More

The location is awesome for a getaway and the food is good too. Just enough activities for a slow holiday. Barring the front office staff, the remaining service needs much improvement. Well-maintained but guests are not informed enough still about what is available and what the plans are. A little bit more effort at hospitality and it will be a... More

Gourukana is about 200kms from Bangalore. Journey took nearly 5.30 hours by road; some part of the drive was through forest which made the travel really exciting. Stay at Gourukana was a great experience; they have cottages in the middle of the forest and even a river passing aside by which makes the views all the more breathtaking. The location... More

The cottages has a mezzanine floor just above the bathroom with 2 single bed kept next to each other. It is a great place to spend time at and do the chit chat... The food is... More

Me and my wife visited this hotel in July for a night stay. We had booked a regular room(Not the tree top one). Since it had rained earlier that day, we were greeted by the muddy, uphill, slippery road which leads to the property. Reaching there was not short of an adventure. This road is around 300 mts. Shouldn't be... More

I have visited with friends. This place is just awesome and package of nature, wildlife and weather. You can enjoy the peace and beauty of nature in the early morning and camp fire at night with local tribal's are performing. We have gone for tracking on nearby hill as well & that was awesome. Food is good at this resort.

I am a frequent visitor of jungle lodges and such rustic resorts. Gorukana is good but gets 3/5 from me. Few points and hope his helps others. 1. The place is small, unlike jungle lodges of say Galibore or Bhimeswari et al. Not much place for kids to play. 2. Nicely maintained place 3. Cottage is good, but the duplex... More
