Mysore Chitravana Resort

-- The place and stay was good.
-- The food service was the worst I have ever seen. The people serving food were as less courteous as possible. The first day when we went in, lunch was served with a delay of at least an hour. Each dish was served at a snail's pace. The orders were not taken properly. Serving water first was never the practice.
-- The breakfast the next day which was meant to be complimentary was rather a gimmick. Each of the items take at least 30 minutes. Can you imagine waiting for idlis for 30 minutes? Also, the stewards were so remorseless of the fact that they are serving at their own pace. We were delayed by at least a couple of hours because of them.
-- When we complained to the person who owned the place, instead of trying to understand the situation, he says, this is a practical problem. I have not seen such audacious behavior in the service industry as yet. Go if you like at your own risk and if you would like to starve.

A group of our friends entered this resort as a leisure trip. The environment was fantastic. The entrance to the resort was curved and full of greenery. We rushed to the food court first after parking our vehicles, since we were very hungry. We could see a wide variety of food options available on the menu. Each one of us started ordering food. It did not take much time to get our food and it was yummy. Be it south Indian or north Indian or continental, the taste was superb. Later we headed to have a look around the resort. We were supplied with some play items such as volley ball, shuttle badminton kit and cricket kit. The play field was huge and everyone could play what they liked. Then we went for a walk around the resort. The greenery was fantastic. Over-all, the we had a great time.

It was an weekend stay for us, started from heavy traffic Bangalore. We reached the place around 11am. For our surprise the place was better than what we thought. A cool relaxing, nature frinedly place. This resort is located around 12kilomerters from Mysore in HD Kote road. The place is so good that I will visit this place again and again.

Chitravana resort is located 10 Kms from Mysore city with great ambience for partying in group.
There is a big cricket ground for fun, along with basket ball court and a small pond to enjoy.
Music party can easily be organised for a gropu of people around 50-100.
The food supplied is descent but its great fun to enjoy far from the crowdy life of city.
There are stay cottages also for people to enjoy the place.
Goop photographic location and overall a nice place to enjoy the party with friends or even ofice parties

A trip that was supposed to be relaxing and away from the busy and hectic lifestyle turned out to be a terrible experience

Well when you check the website they have a fabulous pool which in reality does not exist. It is a pond filled with alot of muck and had a board that it was getting renovated.......

The Boating pond. It looks amazing in the picture but again it is not in use and thus filled with muck and dead leaves....... One would think twice before enter it..........

The restaurant has permanantly stained table cloths......... You have a forced self service there....... Walk in yourself...... Pick up the menu yourself........... and oh thank god there is some one to take your order.... otherwise i was wondering if i had to cook my food as well.........

In the evenings they are supposed to have a live performance but it sounded more like live noise........ they orchestra was terribly out of beats.........

And to top it all there is no hot water in the cottage......

Please think twice before entering this place

This is a perfect spot to hang out incase you are looking for a hotel in semi urban surrounding. This hotel offers relaxation to its customer. The customer can feel as he/she enters the hotel premises. Surrounded by the lush greenery, this hotel certainly is having one of the good air you might want to breathe. Although a little far from the Mysore city, the commutation is not at all a problem. If in a big group, this place has lot of space for fun and activities. If you are fed up of roaming around and want to relax admist nature, this the place. If you happen to think otherwise, its not too far from the besst tourist spot in the state of karnataka, i.e. Mysore. This is a true compramise between fun and relaxing. Good spot for honeymoon, family, friends, older population, themed trip or even school trips.
