Our family stayed at Bamboo Banks for a day and had a wonderful time.
For nature lovers, there are many places to explore within the farm. We spotted a herd of deer, langurs, several different birds, bird nests, a couple of rabbits, a chameleon during our morning walk. There is a stream on the property which is easily accessible and makes a great playarea for kids and family. There is plenty of open space where we could use the ATV, play cricket, use the bicycles at the farm to explore etc. The geese/turkey/dogs add to the farm experience.
Kids were able to take horse back riding in the morning which was very exciting for them. We also had use of the ATV which was put to good use. (No extra charge for the horse back ride or ATV! What a deal!)
Food was served at the dining area and was good. A good spread for us vegetarians - Rice/Coconut Rice/Rasam/Dhal/Gobi manchurian/cabbage poriyal/phulkas/semiya sweet for vegetarians. (There were some non veg options too). We had idli/dosa/vada/chutney/sambhar/breads/different jams-spreads/fresh fruits/tea-coffee. What more can one ask for?
The staff were very pleasant and helpful and served tea-coffee-boost at our cottage when requested. The hosts checked on us multiple times to ensure our comfort. Overall our experience was great and this place turned out to be just what we city dwellers needed to get away from the hustle/bustle of the city and unwind. We will be back with our friends/family soon.
