Bynekaadu is about 300KMs from Bangalore. We spend almost 3 days here and loved every minute of it. we were 8 of us and were given 2 brand new cottages next to each other and a separate area in front for campfire & stuff. We spent the 1st half in the River which was so refreshing and then after lunch, we played badminton which was super fun. The ambiance is just the way we wanted it...quiet, greenery all round and a river flowing right below us. The nights were spent like any gang of friends would playing cards, talking & drinking. We ended up staying awake till 5:00AM on 1 Jan. Just goes to show how wonderful the place was and how comfortable we were. The food & hospitality was just perfect. Overall a fabulous trip to bring in the new year. I would highly recommend this place for families too.
