Farm Weekends
Ranked #123 of 824 Specialty Lodging in Bengaluru
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is a farmstay so the benchmarks cannot be that of a luxury stay. Against such benchmarks, I would rate this place highly.

First things first is since it is a one and a half day package, you dont really have to worry about getting up and checking out!! So kudos to this feature

Secondly, the pricing reflects a total value for money - you get the entire place to yourself since this place is leased out to only one group and includes all the meals

The staff is helpful without being officious. They have been trained well. The cook is excellent and made some really good dishes. I piled on 1.5 kgs in one day!!

The farmhouse itself has a good dining area by the swimming pool. The odd monkey or two might be there but the staff takes care of that for you. The room was decently done and was spacious with an air conditioner attached.

The swimming pool was not very inviting though. Also, reach out to the staff for backup incase of a power cut as there doesnt seem to be a auto switch.

I could go on about the place but would let you discover it for yourself. A must go and I will surely visit again.

Farm Weekends is a nice place for a day out. We had visited this place in mid of march for my son's first birthday. They charged 15k for 8 Adults which we thought was too high for a day out (Timings 9-6)

The location is very good and it takes 1hr 20 mins from Mekhri circle, Bangalore. Road condition is excellent.

The staff were very co-operative. Jeetendra, the head cook and Ramanjaneya the helper took good care of us. They even did a small decoration for birthday with balloons.

The pool is well maintained and the garden too. There are two bungalows which could be rented. The main bungalow has the pool and is better than the other.
There are 2 big rooms in the main bungalow with a study room to relax.

Food was good overall, but some items were poor and chewy. The number of items were huge though.

The bathrooms were poor and had leakage + water problems.

There are lot of monkeys around the place and sometimes they can be irritating. You cannot afford to keep items outside or keep the door open.

If staying at night, carrying an insecticide is helpful.

All in all, the place is away from city life and can cater to a large group. Definitely worth a visit.

We had an excellent time at Farm Weekends last Diwali. The place is well-maintained and very relaxing. It is wonderful, for couples and families with young children. The staff is very considerate and helpful. The food is delicious and the quantities humungous. We were stuffed with food (in a good way) throughout our stay. Everything is taken care off. All you have to bring is personal supplies and a good book.

This is a nicely tucked away place about an hours drive from Mekri circle/ Hebbal junction. The place is a 13 acre farmhouse style house that you can rent completely for the weekend. The farmhouse is well laid out and provides a good ambiance. The pool outside is good for water activities. The cook cum manager does a very good job of catering to all your needs along with his 2 helper boys.
The food was good and can be customized t suit your taste. We were a bunch of 35+ guyz on a mid life break :). We had a great time chatting and indulging in activities like cricket, shuttle, pool games. All in all a good break from hectic week day life. Would recommend it to both families as well as single groups. The owner Mr Abby was very helpful in providing information, direction etc.

This is an awesome place to visit with family and friends for a weekend. Just a short drive out of the city but you are transported to a calm, serene and relaxing abode. My two year old also had a blast splashing around in the pool. There is also a play-area for kids and many dogs, geese, turkeys for company. The food was simple and homely. Staff was extremely friendly and courteous.

We were a group of 11 people and we decided to spend a day at Farm Weekends. We had a wonderful time! The place is maintained very well. The swimming pool is clean. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The chef and the guy in charge of the property (I don't remember their names) were extremely friendly and helpful! We were served Upma, Masala Dosa, Omlette, Bread with Butter and Jam, Juice and Coffee/Tea for breakfast. Lunch was delicious and included Soup, Paratha with 3 kinds of side dishes and Ice Cream with Exotic Fruits. We requested them to serve lunch on the terrace and they were kind enough to shift the entire buffet table. Lunch amidst the mountains and greenery was unforgettable! Apart from that, we were served a variety of snacks and soft drinks by the pool. This was not included in our package and we were pleasantly surprised! I would highly recommend this place and would love to visit this place again!
We were slightly disappointed by the game room. The board games were in a bad condition. You could take your own board games to keep yourselves occupied.
The biggest plus point of this place is, we had complete privacy. They don't accommodate more than 1 family/group at a time. It's definitely worth a visit.

Want to get out of Bangalore, breathe some fresh air with the mountains in the background? Farm weekends is definitely the place you should go to! It's so awesome I'm surprised there's just one review on the place!

A 2 hour drive from the city, close to Nandi hills, the farm is fully equipped with a beautiful farm house which you get all to yourself and an army of Chefs at your beck and call - day and night cooking a range of spectacular cuisines.

The aqua blue swimming pool gives the place a 5 star feel while the ducks, geese, chickens, dogs and Guinea foul makes it a true farm stay! There are cycles, games, a children's play area, bonfires, bbqs and just about anything you can think of for a perfect weekend (it was so peaceful that we stayed 4 days!)

Room Tip: All the rooms are good!
