Kids loved the place! Accommodation was squeaky clean and spacious. Plenty of nature all around. The pool was an absolute delight. Lots of little things to do all around. Quite a few nice places to drive around to. Food was nice and homely.

It was our first visit to this property and was a very good experience. Zerasp- the owner, manager, complete staff, the complete concept is very good. Best thing is the efforts they make to provide you the comfort and pleasure you want but in legal preview. I felt that they were hit badly due to COVID shutdown so I pray to God to make them recover and flourish as quickly as possible.. Dhananjay Singh

A home away from home ! The open space , the animals on the farm , the awesome food is what had my kids really engaged . It was a relaxing vacation with everything taken care of , pet friendly in true sense and our dogs would look forward to the walk in the woods every day . The sunset would bring out the hares and the kids had a fun time tracking them , the deer’s on campus never failed to excite all of us . The personalised attention and the staff were very polite and helpful , discussing the menu everyday , food for the dogs was another plus. We look forward to going back for another trip soon - a great place to unwind , relax with access to Internet and the quote of the woods

What a great place to unwind from the busy life! I have been to many resorts and this is the best I have been to so far. We were able to see nearly 200 deers, just sitting in our cottage. We were also able see wild boars. This resort itself is in nearly 40 acres with only 7 cottages. This offered a great deal of privacy. The atmosphere was calm and serene. I would definitely come back here.

We stayed the last three days of 2020 at Bamboo Banks. None of us had travelled out of our homes for the last 9 months and we wanted this break to make up for all the months spent locked in our homes. The ride from Coonoor to Masinagudi is magical. Bright blue skies , the 36 hair pin bends down the magnificent ghats, the fabulous views from above the mountains till we reach the foothills and the forest starts. The Jungle at Madhumalai gets sparse and wiry in the winter. The trees shed their leaves, and the entire landscape looks dry and trasparent . But be warned that is not so.. the Jungle is deep and a large Tusker can suddenly appear before you. As you look away, your eye catches a shy spotted deer running past. The Jungle is full of surprise and wonder which you see from your vehicle when you move past. Reaching Bamboo Banks we were amazed at the vastness of the space. 40 acres of land , agricultural fields, horses and stables, ATVs to ride, and the natural beauty all around to savor on walks around the property. We stayed in the Stone cottage. Impeccably clean rooms, fresh linen, a fridge in the room, and plenty of space including a dressing room. Living in a jungle is comforting and compels all your senses to react. Sleeps are the best. All that oxygen in the air makes you sleep soundly after every meal. Go to the Jungle to make up for your sleep I say ! The fresh home cooked meals at Bamboo Banks are a class apart. Breakfast , lunch and dinner were sumptuous hearty meals which we did full justice to. We ate to our hearts content , stomachs groaning after each meal , but come the next meal and we were ready to eat again! Zed and Shenaz are the owners of Bamboo Banks and they run a very successful enterprise. They are always around to enquire, help, and recommend. The staff are helpful and kind and always ready to please. What more can anyone want from a resort except to be spoilt silly like we were at Bamboo Banks. Pack your stuff and go to Masinagudi. Book Bamboo Banks and give yourself the much needed pampering. Thank you Zed I'm.coming again. Sooooooon!

Went with some friends for a day. Stayed on for three. It was that good. Zed and his sister Shernaz make sure you have a wonderful time. The rooms were spotlessly clean. The linen was fresh. The complementaries in the room were generous. The food was excellent. And the service exemplary! A great place to wind down and relax. And with over 30 acres, you can walk around, visit their farm, take a jeep drive, ride a horse or zoom around on the ATV track - all complimentary! Will surely stay here again. Well done Zed and team.

My husband and I visited Bamboo Banks in Dec 2020. Property This 42 acre property is a mini forest housing several mammals like spotted deer, langurs... if you are lucky you can spot an Elephant too. We spotted over 50 different bird species that included the beautiful Blue bearded bee eater, small Minivet, Indian paradise flycatcher etc. Amenities Zerasp the owner takes the guests in his 4 wheel drive jeep to give an overview of the large property. They have ATV vehicles that one can take for a spin. That’s good fun. They also have horseback riding, cycling among other things to do in the property. Room We stayed in Cottage, that was very spacious with all the amenities. View of the forests and the birds made it special. Food Food spread was really lavish with multiple options for veg, non veg, South Indian and North Indian dishes. The menu was specially designed for each day. Hosts Owners Mr Zerasp and Mrs Shanaz are warm, lovely and gracious hosts. Mr Rafique the manager and the staff are very polite and made sure we are comfortable, making our stay truly memorable. We would definitely love to visit this beautiful place again.
