We spent two nights here with our kids aged 11 & 12. The farm is a tranquil location and we saw so much wildlife from the terrace outside our cottage - spotted deer, Nilgiris langur, malabsorption squirrel - all played just a few metres from us. On a jeep tour around the house lace we also saw wild dogs, which was a real treat. The pool made the kids very happy! There was also a huge array of toys and sports kit available. Unfortunately one daughter was poorly, a bug she had picked up elsewhere. The staff were helpful, concerned and cooked to cater for a delicate tummy. The rest of us all tucked into massive amounts of delicious home cooked food. All in all, we had a lovely stay. Thoroughly recommended!!
Excellent,excellent and excellent place to spend a few days. Great bungalows to view wild animals go past mornings and evenings. Great food and fantastic service from all the staff. A must if you are any where near Bandipur Tiger reserve.
We stayed as a couple in 2018 & thoroughly enjoyed our stay & so made a return visit with our family this time. It’s a great place to relax and experience a true farm stay & is very close to the Mudumalai National Park. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed all the facilities offered including horse riding, ATVs, fire pit in the evenings and the fabulous pool. The cottages are comfortable & have all the facilities you need but please don’t expect 5 star accommodation. You come here to enjoy the natural beauty of the setting with deer, monkeys, malabar squirrels & domestic farm animals surrounding you. We were lucky to see 3 wild elephants crossing the road on our way to the farm. Freshly prepared food enjoyed in a rustic, alfresco setting ... good selection of veg & non veg ...…
One of the best home stays we have experienced. Our hosts were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. The setting is fabulous - unspoilt but very well kept: malabar squirrels, spotted deer, monkeys plus domestic animals roam freely. There are horses to ride and a lovely pool.which was an extra bonus, nature reserves near by and a very well run elephant camp to visit. The food was delicious and varied and all the staff so helpful and kind.
We had the most wonderful stay at Bamboo Banks. This family run property is managed really well. Our accommodation (Brick House) was really spacious with every possible amenity included. The verandah and the open spaces around Brick House with sunlight filtering through the trees -- provided the perfect place to unwind. We were thrilled to spot two Malabar squirrels in the canopy! The property has beautiful grounds to explore and a sparkling clean swimming pool. The food is delicious, freshly made, and served hot by the warm and friendly kitchen staff. Our thanks to the property manager for being really attentive to all the guests. Altogether, our stay was really memorable and we have no hesitation in recommending Bamboo Banks!
