Rappa may have been a great place to unwind a few years ago but now its the right place to go if you want to just get drunk without caring for the food, the service or the hospitality. The 6 person cottage is good for 4. Lunch is average at best Dinner much worse, served in an open dining hall... More

Visited Rappa back in 2012, this place has it's own charm. Of what i hear, the owners have changed now, but the place remains the same more or less. The connectivity isn't the best, and the road leading there could be harsh. If you are visiting this place with high hopes about the stay, I won't rate it too high.... More

Except boating and back water nothing is good...!!!! Worst food and service. Very rude and arrogant staffs. No food menu available. Ask for anything, they will charge you more. If you want t buy anything, you have to travel at least 14KM even for petrol on a very bad road. Except for the friendly dogs everything else is bad. You... More

I have finally taken time off write this review- not because I didn't want but because I procrastinated. The place was suggested by my son who had visited Rappa a few months earlier. He was just right. This was THE PLACE for me. Rappa is about 4 hours away from Bangalore off Hassan on the back waters of Hemavathy Reservoir.... More

To start off with, the location is absolutely perfect! Its a wonderful place tucked away from the hustle of the city and what makes it great is the friendly dedicated crew which makes the experience more relaxed.Food is simple, healthy and homely food with great taste. Yogi and team you guys are amazing hosts. Waiting to see Zimba,Laura,Tingo,Champ&Rocket
