Visited Shilhaandara on March 5, 2021 and stayed there for 2 nights. Ours was a group of 4 adults, 2 kids and a 3-month old baby. The stay was awesome, and I highly recommend the resort to those looking for a weekend destination close to Bangalore. It is a great getaway for nature-lovers, adventure-sports lovers, families with kids/infants, couples, large groups as well as solo travelers. Read on for more details - Pros: 1. Large campus amid beautiful natural settings. Surrounded closely by the granite hills and forests of Ramanagara. 2. The campus is designed to maintain aesthetic harmony with the surrounding nature. It offers ample greenery, long winding walkways and lovely viewpoints. The structures like buffet dining area, fish spa and adventure sports areas etc. are designed to look 'carved out of rocks', which gives a historical feel to the whole experience. 3. We stayed in Standard Rooms of the Soumithre block. It is a beautifully-architected dome-shaped building with an open top. The rooms we occupied offered beautiful view of the hills and forests outside. The Pool rooms are higher-priced as they have attached personal pools, but they offer no view. 4. As mentioned earlier, we traveled with a 3-month old baby. The rooms were very well-maintained, there was no hygiene concern and the stay felt very safe for the baby. 5. The campus offers adventure sports and fun activities like zip line, quad-biking, shooting, paint ball etc. Now, for some reason (social distancing norms?), many of these activities seemed unavailable during our stay although we saw the infrastructure. In any case, we were not interested in any of the activities, so we didn't enquire further. 6. The campus is kid-friendly with open as well as indoor play area for kids. The kids (4-5 year olds) in our groups had great fun! Cons: 1. The food menu (esp breakfast) is quite limited. No fruit juices available.…
This is a wonderful place for relaxation ( we visited post lockdown so no activities are open) Staff is very very very excellent and they are ready to help you with a smile on there face. i loved the food :)
Was here on 31 dec 2020 with extended family, for a day trip. The infrastructure is basic and for the entry fee of 850/- (without breakfast) all you get is a lunch and a high tea with free entry to pool and carrom board! Rest all is chared. The cane sugar, juice, pop corn, zip liner , zorbing, fish spa, every thing is charged. The staff do not answer an of the questions willingly. Food served is just average.
This place is not safe, there were no cameras around especially at the zipline area. One of the staff molested me, and pushed me off on the zipline before I could scream. When I complained to management, they did not accept that this happened and they blamed me. After I called the police, the management begged me not to file a complaint and said that they was handle it quietly. Overall terrible experience, no support for women's safety from the staff at all, infact they were shaming me at first. Shame on this resort.
Good place to have a day out with family and true example of excellent hospitality, this place is just amazing with surrounding huge rocks and fresh air,They have got a huge area to walk around and enjoy the different view of the place…over all a good experience......😍
