Ever dreamt of staying inside a jungle for the night. We'll this place dishes up your dream on a platter. Although located on the Mysore - Madekeri Highway, you'll never hear any of the traffic.
A Bridge connects the resort to civilization and its so secluded that the only noises that you hear while in this resort are those of the birds, the monkey (there's lots of them) and the river gushing by - yes, you heard it right. Its located on the banks of the Cauvery river and each of the accomodation huts has a balcony positioned such that you are sitting on top of the river.
Now imagine having dinner and maybe a few drinks with the river gushing away right under you. Incredible. The resort is full of birds, butterflies, nature and peace.
So what are the downsides. Well, I happen to sleep like a log and slept like one too. My wife on the other hand is a very light sleeper and the monkeys on the tree and roof kept her sleep disturbed. The food provided in the canteen is very basic and only veg so if you want something non-veg or more then, you need to make your own arrangement.
The service is very prompt and timely - nothing great though. The rooms (log cabins) are very comfortable but very basic.
I would strongly recommend this place to those who want to experience the jungle. Go with a open mind and you won't be disappointed. A Tip - Please book well in advance because of the rates (700 a night) the place is almost always full.
