Really good to stay here in with nice environment, climatic condition. Staff members interaction is also much appreciate thing here. Accomodation is superb with reasonable cost.
No compromise in Quality & Cleanliness of resort.
Overall highly recommended.
Manager Vinu is managing all things neatly including firecamp and music around the camp. And he took immediate action about any issues in food or related to cleanliness

The resort was really good and also the food was tasty... We stayed for 2 days and we got really good hospitality from staff Santosh and owner Mr. Vinu bird.. The staff was really friendly and you will not be disappointed.. The stay was safe clean and recommended.. The only draw back.. It's a little far away from the tourists spots in Chikmagalur..
This was my second visit to it and I will visit again in future..
Thank you Mr. Vinu

We 10 people checked in to this Resort on Dec 5th,2020. The place is full of trees , plants and has multiple cottages with all amenities. The quality of food was awesome. We enjoyed the night dinner with music and fire camp. The kind of service from owner Mr.Veenu or the staff (expecially Mr.Santhosh) was kind. From their we can go to Mulyangiri (50km), Kemmengundi rose garden, ans few fall. More over it is economical

Instead of being in hospitality they would have done great things as SEO consultancy.

We were 6 guys, booked online for the "The last Resort". Upon reaching the resort MR. Venu asked us to check-in to other resort named "Kanthi Nivas Homestay" which is just a walk-able distance from the one we booked. When refused Mr Venu said that the Kanthi Nivas also belongs to them. He said "Valley of Birds", "The last Resort" and "Kanthi Nivas Homestay" managed by three brothers and they accept the booking for all the three facilities and depending upon the availability they move guests to different facilities.

I think these people are bothered only about improving the search ranking in google and good online presence. Mr Venu has complete details about the page rankings of their homestays, I suspect the existing reviews of this resort. He kept on lying and giving reasons and asked us to check-in to other resort by giving reasons as below;
• guest extended because they did not get train booking
• Management pushed a vip so he had to accommodate them without advance booking etc
When questioned about why he did not inform us the non-availability in advance, he said that he lost our contact details and he kept on building stories. As there were no options available to us we decided to check-in to the Kanthi Nivas. We entered the facility for 20 min no one turned up, then came Mr Mani (manager), when checked about lunch he said it will take 30 min. We ordered egg bhurji and started with our drinks we did not get the egg bhurji and got our lunch 3:50.
• Bath room did not have the ventilation, it was two walls and a door with in the four wall with temporary roof (entire hall was stinking)
• Sink tap was broken, Mr Mani suggested us to use the bucket and mug
• Commode seat was smaller than the bowl
• Hot water not provided
10 PM onwards he started serving the dinner with one by one items like chicken, followed by boiled egg without peeling the shell (we had to peel), followed by papad and chapathi etc., over all the food was average.
Next day morning he served us Coffee/Tea and biscuits. At 9:30 AM for breakfast he served Lemon rice, poori, idli, chatni, and previous day dhal and chicken curry. One of my friend asked the homestay staff whether the chicken curry was yesterdays and staff said yes. My friend sarcastically asked was it heated? the homestay staff replied “how can we serve yesterday’s dish without heating sir?”

Responded 15 Apr 2014
We truly apologize for the mix up, The homestay/resort reviewed here does not belong to us. The management instead of being truthful that we were over booked mislead the customers by giving excuses and then put them up in a near by homestay. This is not our normal business practice, after a complete investigation of the facts we have found that it was our fault in over booking which was an error! instead of stating the obvious the customers were mislead by the management. As all our reviews reflect we strive to provide the best service and we truly apologize for any inconvenience caused to the guests. The concerned staff have been reprimanded for same. We will monitor our bookings more closely in the future and promise to make your stay with us a pleasant one. Thanking you. Owner-David Bird

First I would like to thank Mr Venu and the staffs for their awesome hospitality. We were 5 families with 2 kids and 2 infants stayed at this resort from Apr 30 to May 3 2015.

Location - This resort is located in foot hills of kemmankundi and commute to this resort from Bangalore is very easy..

Rooms - The rooms are very spacious,clean and also they have a portico with sofa. However, the room no 1,2 and 3 are very small in size and it is near to dinning area .So better avoid these rooms if you need a pleasant stay.

Food and staffs - Both veg and non veg food are good. They serve extra chicken/mutton as per our request @ reasonable cost. They also pack delicious lunch if we plan to roam other places .The staff are really cool and very polite. We disturbed the cook to get hot water, milk etc for our infants in middle of their work but they never hesitated to do that.

Major Cons of this resort
1. No sufficient hot water if the resort fully occupied.
2. Though full night power failure ,there was no back up power given from Midnight to Morning 5 @ the time of our stay
3. Water leakage in dining area at the time of rain, we could not have peaceful food.

Overall I would recommend this place for better stay.

Tips to Visitors -
1. Hebbe falls is an awesome attraction which is located near to this resort. you have to hire a jeep(3000RS) to reach this place. Don't miss this place.
2. The Jeep guy would promise and tempt you that he can cover mullayanagiri,bababudangiri and muthodi forest in a single day(4500 Rs/Jeep) by going via deep forest . But they take the normal route where our car also can go and while returning they would come via forest (via Kemmankundi) and that is of no use.
3. The route towards mullayanagiri from this resort via Kemmankundi is very scenic for nature lovers. If you are planning to hire a jeep to cover mullayanagiri and bababudangiri, ask the driver to take the Kemmankundi route. We can spot some wild life if we are lucky.
4. Better avoid visiting muthodi forest. This is too far from this resort and there is no organised ticket counters. The forest department has very less number of vehicles ( one trip 30 member can go inside forest) and they run only two trips. The tickets are not given in first come first serve basis.So,if you are lucky you will get the ticket else it would be a waste of time.

Very Good in terms of ambience, food quality is good like home food. Nice maintenance of environment which is refreshing to your mind.
The only problem is the distance to chikmagalur town & resort is 50km however it really matters depends on what you want to do in your trip.

I completely recommend this place to everyone who plan to visit chikkamagalur and blindly can choose this resort for your stay. What most intrigued me is their lovely ambience and their hospitality. The staff are really cool and very polite and the way they served food was like my mom served the food , so they will make you feel like you are at home :-)
Another best part of this resort is the plants inside this resort. The path way from the reception to the rooms is itself very scenic with wide variety of beautiful plants, and flowers were simply awesome to see. I took some very close shots with my dslr telephoto zoom and have captured all those wonderful and gorgeous flowers. I like everything in this resort - food (although not much items but were really delicious), rooms are nicely built (I liked especially those sit outs where you have wonderful view of outside hill) and last but not the least, this resort is very well organized by two nice fellows - Mr. Prakash & Mr. Veenu bird. This resort is worth for the whole family, a group of 10-15 members will really enjoy this place with lots of indoor and outdoor activities !!! and not to forgot that in this resort, they had very cute cats which my wife and daughter really enjoyed with those little kitties :-) .. Only one suggestion that I would like to give to 'The last resort' is to include some fruits in the meals and also a dessert is a must. I felt that these two were missing and I hope I would like to see these two things when I visit next time to your resort again !!! ;-) ... I'm writing this experience as I just returned from this resort on April 18 and I hope this information would be useful for everyone who reads my review...

Thanks,
Sachin

We are honestly humbled by the great reviews we receive for the services we provide. We do offer a desert and bananas as a fruit to all our guests. It appears the staff some how missed serving the desert and the fruits we offer. Our apologies to Mr. Biddu and family we appreciate your comments and will make sure that we will more than make up for the missed desert and fruits on your next visit with us. We, greatly appreciate all comments from our customers as its the only way we can continue to provide outstanding service to all of our customers. Thank you for the great review.

Take a stroll, punch a volley, have a deep sleep or shake it out for some blockbuster numbers! This place can be perfect for all moods and all sizes of tourists. Located close to kemmanagundi range, this homestay resort was a nice hangout for my 50+ office gang!
Food serving and the restaurant was only a little bit let down in our 2 Day trip to this place.
Looking forward to stay

I stayed in this place for 2 nights. We two families. We had a pleasant stay. The place will be best during rainy and winter season, it will be little dry in summer. The best thing is food. It is very tasty and the staff are very kind and professional. There are few cottages at the last which would be better if you like privacy. Overall very nice place with affordable price.

i'm a travel manager by profession ' and i really respect this place' as it gives me the peace and relaxation throughout the stay , reaching from my city Bangalore is really not tiresome at all , when i travel to places like ooty or something ,i really feel the stress , it is really worth driving to this place every time , this is a place for those who are in search of pure oxygen and calm environment, when it comes to food its really homely and purely organic, , this is not a place to demand for pizza or pan cakes , its for those who like traditionally tasty food , the staff here is very caring as well , and the gardens are amazing , decent accommodation ' dear folks take a professionals word, do visit the last resort .. but hey ... respect the nature ... enjoy the greenery ,enjoy the silence .. enjoy the food ..
