We stayed in Akasa Getaways on 2nd and 3rd Nov 2013. We were a big family of 6 adults and 2 kids.We really liked the place and the surrounding
Positives
1.Its a great location, nestled between the forests, this was a great place to un-wind.
2. The backyard of the property is simply amazing, great bonfire site and overlooking the
valley below
3. The guest house responsible Mr Mukund, is very helpful and really tried to make us
comfortable. He also arranged a tribal cultural program for the guests.
4. It is value for money, compared to the expensive jungle lodges
5. The rooms are very clean and food is fresh and decent.
Improvements
1. If the guest house is full with guests, there were some minor issues with food quantity and
food serving timings
2. We took a taxi and our driver also ate in the guest house and they charged for drivers
food. With my experience of other guest houses and home-stays, when we are in large
groups and booking multiple rooms, the driver is given free meals
Some Tips
1. Rangaswamy temple is short walk from the property
2. The forest office where safari is arranged is 18 km from this place and great jungle drive. If
you are interested in safari, there are two 1-1.5 hour trips in the mornings starting 7 AM
and two trips in the evening starting 3:30-4 PM. Be there at-least 30 mins or an hour before.
3. The place is not accessible between 6PM and 6 AM when the forest gates are closed so
plan your travel accordingly.
4. Take a walk to a lotus pond, which is around 2 kms from the property

Room Tip: Choose the deluxe rooms on the first floor

After our stay in Akasa Mysore we travelled to BR Hills and stayed in another akasa hostel. This hostel again supports an NGO. In this case the NGO is helping native inhabitants in this area to create a sustainable project in order to provide an income and food by using the traditional ways of producing food and furniture. The hostel provides tours to the projects and health centres, which is very interesting to see.

The hostel itself has clean and new rooms, and are furbished with the traditional furniture that is produced by the native people in the area. You should definately take a walking trip through nature and enjoy the nature while climbing!

It was one of the best trips that we have made out of many!

We appreciate the Stay, Food, Staff and The Pricing. We found Akasa by chance at BR Hills - which lived up to our expectation.

We highly recommend "Akasa" to the one, who is looking for the good experience with limited budget. They have their in-house guide who accompanied us for Birdwatching, Tribal Development Center, Drive in the evening, visit to one of the tribal hamlets, and we also had a short trek to the peak point of BR Hills that is where the temple is.

The best experience in the trip was the bon fire at their backyard that has the great view point and a tribal cultural performance at their another property known as Gorukana.

We are looking forward for another trip in the near future

Cheers!
Kumar Urs
