Get lost
It is easy to get lost here (literally and figuratively) as you're in middle of the great wilderness with pretty poor cellular connectivity, hence always better to carry a book. (A loaded iPad if you don't read.) The above two applies only if you don't walk and explore the forest you choose to be in. Great place for families coz kids have more than enough area to run around and explore. Spacious rooms (and bathrooms) mean they can continue running around indoor as well. Pros: Location. This is quite a dichotomy coz there's actually nothing to do in or around the property other than to immerse in the forest. Cons: If you are like me, you would have wished for the restaurant rates to be a bit more tame. Or for a Zomato/Swiggy delivery.

The property is amazing. The cottages are huge and beautiful. Staff is very polite and helpful. Food is great. Sometime you can see some deers from your balcony. Very big property. I would definitely recommend this property.

It was 2days stay with the Kid , staff are very friendly and resort is well maintained. Front Office : Office Manager Nixon was very helpful . Since we were the only booking other than a large group that has booked rest of resort , he arranged for safari in an open jeep safari just for us. Restaurant: Staff Madesh and NagShetty were very accommodative with the kid , provided us with the items that were not on the menu but asked by the kid.

Like: Great infinity pool. Dislike: they begrudged me packing up (taking home) an empty (small) glass cookie jar which I had refilled with almonds for my 9yr old to eat on the 5 hour drive back home - they stopped me post checkout & confiscated said amenity - beyond petty when considered in context of the 2 courtyard rooms costing rs.18-24k each I had booked 🙄

Lovely property. Allthough a bit inconvienient if you want to do the safari given the location, the main safari point is about 45 mins drive up and back all the way with not very good roads
