Negatives - food (very ordinary for the price they charge) Tips - negotiate hard especially for non weekends. Wi-fi only in and around the reception area (if there is no disturbance in the...

Had a very enjoyable & peaceful stay. Tranquillity of the place is amazing. Special mention to the treatment by the team headed by the Manager Uday. Food is simple but good. Rooms & toilets are cleanly maintained. Highly recommended if you want to have a peaceful stay away from the hustle bustle of city life.

Sorry to hear you problems. The price is now stream lined. However pls note the price varies depending on the time and the group size. Since we are in mountain resort, we don't have full fledged restaurant running. We do keep changing variety of menu every day. We will surely improve ourself . Thanks

This is a very good place to spend a couple of nights, especially when there are not too many options in that area. Positives - spacious, good views, good common areas, yelaneeru waterfalls in walkable distance (3km), friendly, helpful, courteous staff, decent food. Could be better - coffee was definitely not palatable, information on sight seeing/activities could be better collated...

Location : This resort is located at samse village neighbouring Kudremukh. The approach road to the resort isn't that appealing and cars with low ground clearance need to be watchful. Once you approach the resort, it is beautifully land spaced and you do find a lot of greenery both within the resort and around the resort. Facilities : the resort...
