- Nestled away from the maddening Bangalore traffic, a perfect weekend gateaway - we reached the property from Koramangala, Bangalore in about 4 hours - The cottages are perfectly designed for a peaceful stay and are perfectly spaced from one another to offer privacy to guests - The cottages have no wifi, TV and playing loud music is not allowed...

We went to BR hills for one day. We were not really sure of the place and booked it one day before. The hotel staff are extremely courteous and made us feel at home. The rooms are too good and are super private (Loved the upper deck in the cottages.. Would be great for children!) Food is very nice and...

We were 6 people & stayed in 3 cottages. Each cottage is sufficient for a family with 2 kids, because there are attic rooms provided with 2 beds. You can wake up early, laze on the attic beds while looking out into the early morning birdlife while sipping on hot coffee. At night the place was dark, quiet & relaxing...

All the staff working here are actual tribals from neighborhood, gives a rustic authenticity to the place. The staff is very courteous. 2. We got all the arrangements,...

We went for a 2 night/3 day outing with friends. A very nice and different place. Each Cottage has 4 beds, one double bed and 2 individual beds in the mezzanine floor. This Mezzanine floor within the cottage is a good design. Rooms are clean and tidy for a place near a jungle. Don;t expect the tidiness of a star...

This place is located in the middle of BR reserve. As with most jungle places, do not expect ultra luxury, just enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds you. We had stayed in a cottage which was quite spacious and clean. Hot water was not a problem as they had geysers. BSNL and Airtel networks available. Wifi at reception. Food is...

The eco Resort is on a hill side, has a bunch of cottages in a row and A central dining area. Will recommend this place during off season, avoid busy crowded weekends. It was nice to sleep on hammock under the trees and freely interact with the staff. BR Hills makes for a nice drive when the traffic is not...

We stayed here for 2 nights during the long weekend of Diwali and Nov 1, we were looking for a place near to Bangalore so that we could save ourselves from the noise and pollution during Diwali. The resort is surrounded by forest and we could see and hear birds singing through out the day. Rooms are spacious, with a...

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.
