Kolavara Heritage Homestay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Kolavara Heritage is a home stay a little away from Tirathahalli and near Kupalli (poet Kuvempu's home town). A traditional mansion built in a coffee estate of 25 acres. It is an excellent getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hosts are very friendly people and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The food they served was awesome, in our stay of 4 days there, we thoroughly enjoyed the variety of malnad food that was served.

Sceptical we were? As we had never been to a home stay before! Tucked in the wilderness of malnad, Kolavara was a pleasant surprise. While the estate setting was pristine, what scored was the genuineness in attention the family gave to make sure we were comfortable.

Rooms are good and self-sufficient, best part is the regional malnad food that you get to taste in a house that reflects its tradition and history in design and attitude.
Surely a place we will visit again.

One of the best homestays i had stayed in till date, Very well maintained by a 4 member family. Everything about this place was so good. The hosts Nischal and Vasthayla are very friendly and keeps you entertained all the while. The food served here is lavish and excellent in taste, the best part is - it's a home made tastly prepared food by Vasthayla and her mother-in-law. Would love to visit this place again.

Little deep into the countryside, we had to keep asking for directions but once we reached there we were at total peace. Please stay for at least 2 nights to really enjoy all the sights and the property. Superb masala tea (chai) and clean toilets with hot water is all that really matter in any place that I stay. The fact that there is practically no mobile network is a blessing. You can sight peacocks early in the morning if you can get up early. The owner Nischal is one of the sweetest guys I have ever met,most accomodating and very courteous; a thorough gentleman. The staff is minimal and nearly invisible till you need them. Then they will magically appear and attend to you. I found that very commendable.

If you are looking for a place which will make you forget the hustle and bustle of the city life, then look no further than Kolavara Heritage. I had visited this place during the third week of October and boy did we come out refreshed. It is a home stay to the true sense and we have already decided to make it an anual must visit place. This was our first trip with our 15 month old son and to say that he was taken care of very well would be an under statement. Vathsalya and Nischal are perfect hosts and I dont think I need to add any more than what has already been mentioned. Their care is genuine and it shows in the way they interact with their guests. Vathsalya's navigation skills can put gogle maps to shame, literally. I never got lost once while i was following her directions both while coming to the home stay and while returning to Bangalore.
The Food, i still drool thinking over it. Awesome experience and awesome place. I would suggest this place for any one and every one.

Room Tip: Try room 4 and room 5, they are on the right hand side of the property and open up into the coffee p...
