We did lot of research and zeroed in on this resort as the size of the rooms offered were of big size and we found the rooms were of really big, spacious and well furnished. The rooms are located midst the plantation and just below the mountain. The resort is located 4 kms away from the main town virajpet. The food was included as part of the package. Excellent food quality and variety offered by the hotel. However hot water was one of the problems we had faced. As this resort is away from main town, there are no local transport available nearby. We had to depend on the hotel to arrange taxis, which is exorbitantly high. The reason sited is the conditions of the road. The roads are horrible. Had really tough time. It would have been better to have taken taxi from Mysore. As we had travelled from Bangalore to coorg directly by KSRTC bus, we missed this and we ended up paying 7500/- for entire sight seeing. Taxiwalas are found cheating and you have to be careful.
The upsides of this resort are, Big and spacious rooms, excellent food, rooms located close to mountain and in midst of the plantation, very good service and ambience.
The downsides are, Hot water problem, isolated place and hence poor availability of vehicles/ public transport, costly taxis, No swimming pools
