This charming homestay is located on the Chikmagalur-Mudigere road. They have rooms of various sizes based on the group size. The food was delicious and freshly prepared at every meal. The staff were polite and helpful. There's a lake on the property surrounded by thick vegetation. Head here to relax and unwind, a home away from home.

Breeze to book the homestay ! Dropped a note the previous night, got a response and booked it the next day. Easily accessible from the main road. The last 500m is a gravelly road though easily doable by a sedan as well. Enough parking space. The homestay is quite cozy. The food is excellent and decently priced. We got the twin room setup called the Annexe. Rooms are sparse but comfy with clean linen. There is a market with basic shops about a km away if anything is needed. A big shout out to the hospitality displayed during our stay there. Every request of ours was attended to very keenly ! Kudos to Suraj and team ! More than anything, it was the hospitality which stood out. Definitely recommended !!

We booked this place on a friend's recommendation. It is a beautiful property...very serene and peaceful. The host Alan was helpful i getting things arranged at a short notice. Gautam was very polite and went out of his way to help us. Although Suraj wasn't there when we arrived, he helped in whatever way he could. Food is like home cooked food and a good spread. The only drawback is the approach to the homestay... otherwise it's a superb place. Would definitely recommend it to those who wish to relax away from the maddening crowd and looking for some peace and calm

As a family our stay at the Hidden valley was really a memorable one. Among all the homestay’s in & around Chilamagalur, The hidden valley is definately one of the finest & safest. As the name suggests, it surely is Hidden in the middle of a vast Coffee plantation with Adundant variety of plants & trees. Our stay was made even more comfortable with the help of the Support staff including Mr. Suraj, Mr. Gowtham and especially Mr. Arun who was always helpful. And I would definately choose Hidden Valley in the near future as well.

The Hidden Valley is a hidden gem. The ambiance of this place is really "tranquilizing", from all the urban chaos, which really feels like us breathing and living. Staffs are very attentive, especially the person from Odisha (sorry forgot his name), He's accommodating. My parents are above 80, this man really helped and accompanied them with his whole heart. The property is filled with visual bliss. sometimes I felt no need to go outside or tour the registered places but to just chill and enjoy the calmness of "The Hidden Valley".

The atmosphere here and the staff here are so special that it really felt like a home for all of us. Boat riding, estate walk,food, hospitality and most cute loving dog (lucky) will complete your day. I would definitely recommend to go and visit with your family.

The hidden Valley is a beautiful property. Even in the middle of summer, it was lush green and cool. The thick foliage, sights and sounds made it feel as though we are in the middle of a forest. April, being the month of fireflies, we were mesmerised by the magical sight of trees lit up by fireflies. Suraj, the manager, took us for a walk in the plantation and patiently answered our many questions. He gave us a good recommendation of Devarmane, a view point which is off the beaten track. We stayed at the private cottage which was clean and spacious. The food is home cooked, simple and tasty. The kids enjoyed their time playing on the property, climbing the tree house and the pond with the pedal boat. We were lucky to meet the owners, the Aranhas, who were warm and friendly. We enjoyed our conversations with them. They even surprised us with a cake for one of our birthdays. All in all we had a fabulous, memorable and most of all relaxing time at the hidden valley. Definitely recommended.
