This property is stunning, and the staff is exceptional. They epitomize the principle of keeping things simple and doing them well. Despite its spacious layout, the property is impeccably maintained and offers a variety of activities. I must give a special shoutout to Rafique. The staff is incredibly caring, ensuring that our toddler was well taken care of in terms of both activities and food. The food is another highlight of this place. A must-have experience!

This rural guest house ticked all the boxes for a natural retreat adjacent to a tiger preserve. I stayed two nights a one-bedroom cottage that was comfortable (and air conditoned) with a wonderful porch for watching birds and the animals on the farm, including beautiful spotted deer. The food was well prepared and delicious and the staff was attentive and helpful. The grounds are extensive and natural with a tower for wildlife observation. would recommend this location for anyone visiting the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve.

Arrived through Kalathy Downhill in my MG ZSEV which was freewheeling downhill. Check in was simple and this is the first time we are here. Place was dry, should have been beautifully green if rains were around. We got a very spacious and clean Safari style room with a good sit out and opposite the little pond in their premises. I have been to many resorts in Africa, but this was similar where wildlife are free to come into the campus and go, so guests should respect their freedom and coexistence. Guests who do not value peaceful and undisturbed coexistence should not stay here and spoil the faith of the animals that come here. Food is simple but great taste and good quantity. A very quiet forest smell and sound enriched experience indeed.

Our 2 night stay at the Bamboo Banks farm guest house was too short. Apart from human guests the farm was also home to monkeys playing in the grounds or otherwise occupying the verandah of our cottage. Jumping on the roof in the middle of the night was also one of their pranks. A stray elephant in the night left its mark by pulling up a tree in the grounds. The surrounding grounds is also home to several bird species, among which the elusive blue bearded bee eater and jungle owlets. A guided walk around the grounds is possible. There is also a refreshing clean swimming pool. The guest house is a very welcoming place. Don’t expect luxury but the friendly staff and the best food we had during our trip to India made it a fantastic place to stay.

I have been visiting Bamboo Banks ever since I was a child. Every visit has always left us with the most happy memories. Hosts are extremely hospitable, the most surreal ambience and leaves you wanting to return once again. Do visit BB, either ask for a Jeep Drive to be organised by the mgmt or drive yourself around. Food is absolutely delish. The pool has an amazing charm with deer popping their heads to see who's jumping into the water.

A wonderful 3-day vacation with family and friends' family. The 7 of us were welcomed warmly by Mr. Z and the manager. After settling in and a welcome tea and snacks Mr. Z took us on a tour of the property. We were given the appropriate warnings that this was a forest, and that we ought to be careful at night. The guest houses are very comfortable and clean. We had safaris planned with another operator but I got the impression that the resort manager would have also arranged these for us. We had B/L/D on all the days and was freshly prepared each time. Delicious South Indian food. My guess is they could cook simple western food as well (e.g., pasta). We truly had a wonderful time here made even more pleasant by the tiger and dhole sightings on our safaris.

We stayed at Bamboo Banks Farms for 3 nights and cannot recommend it enough. This rustic getaway in the middle of the jungle is perfect for families who are looking to catch safaris and experience an authentic stay in Masinagudi. The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating, they made us feel right at home. The property is beautiful and very well maintained, there is something for everyone to do! The rooms were homey, clean and we felt very safe. The food was our favorite, we were spoiled with fresh homemade food daily for 3 meals a day! Highly recommend booking your stay at Bamboo Banks Farm if you are planning a trip to this area!

Our time at Bamboo Banks was a once in a lifetime experience that we would recommend to any and all of our friends and family visiting the area. The number one thing that made our visit so wonderful was the hospitality shown and care taken from each and every staff member. The sprawling property is in the middle of a forest reserve and is surrounded by the beauty of horses, trees, ducks, flowers, and birds. The cottages are very clean, well kept and spacious. Each and every meal has an expansive selection with warm and fresh fulkas, dosas and/or omelettes upon request. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner is included and each meal is home cooked, fresh and delicious. The property has a pool, an activities room, horse riding, a tree house and much more. Thank you to the owners and staff at Bamboo Banks for such a memorable, once in a lifetime experience!
