You can take long walks and be lost in the wilderness without meeting a soul to be only woken up from your reverie by startled peacocks suddenly taking flight leaving a tail wind of breeze in their wake on your face. Or take a local and go for long treks. You don't have to be an ornithologist to enjoy the songs of nameless birds and delight in their visual feast to your eyes or haunting concert of myriad crickets and cicadas at night.

Captian's Bunglow, takes us into another ear- The British Raj, the house reeks of the Golden ara.Its wooden seating area, to the dinning hall, to the portico and ofcourse the dogs, they accompany you until your room and wait on you outside . Adorable bunch! The staff are extremely courteous, Anil,Perumal,Shetty all of them do not need to put an effort, they are just so natural .Shetty ensured we had a bite of every dish that was being churned out by Thimraju and Prashanth, very sweet chap.The Rani jhasi view is a must, breath taking and the camera does not do justice to this beautiful scenery, A big shout out to Anil for driving us in the 4 x4 up there.We ate and drank to our hearts content and enjoyed every bit of our stay, we stayed at the tented accommodation and boy we were glad we did.The stone and wooden cottages are an experience you have to indulge in. It was living a dream with a lot of fantasy included. Must needed oxygen to fill your lungs at this beautiful place. I would rate it a 10 out of 10. Good Job Captian Gopinath you did yourself so proud! Lovely staff keep them close!!

It was indeed a joyful stay at this wonderful abode. It's really cozy and the decor has a fine taste. The staff is really supportive and the food provided is delicious and organic. Just becarefull and take a vehicle with a decent ground clearance as the last 2km to reach this beautiful place and uneven and atrocious. A must visit for a nice and peaceful getaway from the cities hustle and bustle.

Excellent place for long weekend holiday, away from the maddening croud of Bengalore. Our two day stay with our children was really memorable. Enjoyed every moment over there. Pet dogs are too caring and guiding our all walks and treks through the estate. Hospitality and the homecooked meals were exceptional! Highly recommend to anyone looking to unwind and relax!

200 acres of lush flora and fauna takes your breath away !! Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, an ode to the local heritage and nature.Ms Kritika took us for the famed plantation walk and bird watching activities, everything was spot on!! The food variety suits all tastebuds. A memorable break for us and wanting to come again !! Na
