Certificate of Excellence
Experience hospitality at its best at Gonakal, a 360 years old heritage abode midst the scenic beauty of Malnad's lush green forests, widespread coffee plantations and the intoxicating aroma of the black pepper creepers. Situated at just 24 ks from Chikkamagalur, Gonakal has a history of more than 700 years earmarked by Tipu Sultan's visit and the reign of the Hoysalas. A famous temple dedicated to the triumphant warriors of the glorious past is at a stone throw distance. Dwelt by six generations of Royal family, Gonakal is located on the road connecting Chikkamagalur and Tarikere. The unmatched melody of streams trickling down the valley while sipping steaming hot coffee augments the already perfect evenings. Find yourself very close to nature as you listen to the silent call of the passing clouds. Homely Malnad dishes unheard of in other regions makes the stay all the more special and enjoyable.

It's a beautiful place surrounded by mountains, forest and plantation. The place is quite inside from the main road. Good to get directions in advance from the owner.

We were a family of 15 people. We took two rooms in main building (beautiful old house, rooms are little small

Hi: A group of about 10 of us are planning to visit Chikmagalur from Aug 15th-17th (2N, 3D). Your place looks so inviting and we were wondering if you have accommodation available and can offer us a group deal? Eagerly waiting your response. - Ramya
Very nice place to go. Hospitality is great. Visited the place a few days back. The weather is also beautiful at this point of time.
