Absolutely loved this place. Away from crowd, they don't encourage crowd in the property. Just five cottages with splendid views. Ample birds to wake you up. Ample space to walk around the property. Loved walking out in mist on adjacent grasslands. Their dog kept us company. Has view from room, balcony and everywhere. Not to forget the homely food and Karnataka specialities like Kadubbu, akki roti on the menu.

We had a wonderful stay. It's perfect for people who prefer homestays. Food was served on time. Fresh, very tasty, mildly spiced - even the kids enjoyed it. Rooms are big and maintained well. Bathrooms have hot water. Few spiders and lizards managed to come in but we got used to them over four days. The balcony view is lovely. The plantation has good trailes for walking. Our kids loved exploring it and took us twice every day. We saw a lot of birds, insects and beautiful sunsets. Chandan and his staff Anand and Guddu are very courteous. The place is run efficiently and the staff are always available for any help. Would highly recommend Mugilu and hope to come back here quickly.

What a beautiful place for a socially distanced getaway ! I'm glad we spent the last weekend @ Mugilu amidst such an earthy setting and we felt safe with all the precautions taken by the hosts and even other guests. The food is soo good and prepared fresh. Mugilu is surrounded by lush green valleys covered in mist and it made me so happy! A special shoutout to the friendly Gunddu who is the inhouse guide in exchange for petting & head scratches :) Saklespur is such a paradise on earth !!!

I was looking to explore the lush green jungles of Sakleshpur and checking out the routes from Bengaluru, when i stumbled upon an article in TBHP about Mugilu which got me interested. It is a hidden gem for people looking for electronic detoxification. A homestay/ resort where owners have not tampered with the natural beauty of the coffee plantation. Beautifully maintained minimalistic, neat and clean rooms overlooking dense forestation. Food was homely, wholesome and quite tasty. No tv, erratic internet connectivity adds to the magic. An absolute delight for bird watchers, as soon as the dawn breaks the cacophony of birds surround you. Birders can spend hours peering through their field glasses and cameras. A place to carry your Kindle, talk to each others, go on long walks into the adjoining meadows and immerse in the nature. Three adorable dogs Shunti, Zoey and Gundu keep you entertained during the stay.
