“Its a school not a hotel.You feel your are punished once you reach there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

Not recommended at all.

Its a nice property.But the management ensures that your trip is ruined.They are so so strict with their rules that you are just not allowed to let yourself loose.
There are very very strict and unreasonable timings for everything.
10.00 PM dinner closes ( Common i am on a vacation not in a school Hostel.

Not allowed to carry your drinks. Rs 500/day/bottle of corking charges.Super dupen expensive.
You are charging 10k/day already man
INcluded food is pathetic and u gotta pay for anything outside of that.Over and above 10k/day
Beware that the cottages are this big that atleast 4 can fit in easily.3 out of 5 rooms that we booked went unused.They dont even refund you the money nor they would suggest when you are booking the same.

I am sure that are much better places in coorg than this one.

Room Tip: If you are only 2 then go in for the basic cottage.No a/c needed

KadkaniCoorg, General Manager at Kadkani River Resort, responded to this review, 24 November 2011
Dear Guest

We thank for your stay at Kadkani.We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused to you during your stay. We would like to clarify to the points raised in the review.

1. The start and end timings of breakfast, lunch and dinner are mentioned in the restaurant for information to the guests . The timings are always extended and flexible based on the guest needs. We regret for the manner in which the timings were communicated by our staff .

2. As we have a licensed bar, we are not allowed to serve / allow guests to carry liquor from outside as per the govt. rules and regulations. Hence we discourage guests carrying their own liquor to the Bar.

3. As per our cancellation policy ( which is communicated to the all the guests during the booking confirmation) no refund will be done for cancellations 7 days prior to the check in date. We follow this policy because it is quite difficult to sell a cancelled rooms at the last minute. Guests are given option to utilise the amount paid as advance, which is treated as credit, for their stay at Kadkani within a specified time if the cancellation is done in advance.

You had booked 5 Premium AC rooms for 10 pax. 9 pax had checked in and you decided to use only four rooms due to the size of the rooms. We could not refund in cash for the cancellation due to our cancellation policy. Hence as mutually agreed , we provided extra starters, additional facilities and activities worth the value of cancellation amount in lieu of cash.


We thank you for your valuable feedback. We will defenitely take up the issues on a priority basis to improve the level of service and look forward to see you at Kadkani again.

We visited this resort last weekend on one of our office outings. My reviews are below
POSITIVES
Staffs of the resort are very nice and efficient. They made all the arrangements before we reach.
They have some good activities, such as still water rafting, river crossing , Burma loop etc
Food though simple but is prepared fresh and tasty
Swimming pool is good

NEGATIVE
It is expensive for the kind of property it is, we paid 7k for 1 night for double occupancy
Rooms are not so clean, shower area in bathroom dint have a soap dish we had to keep the soap on the floor while taking shower
Water in washbasin and shower area was a bit yellow and had rustic smell
They had very basic toiletries of their own kadkani brand which was average
Toilet seat was very loose and kept shifting
Their premium rooms are not child friendly at all
Towels smelled of strong detergent
The resort does not seem to take any step toward environment even though they are in midst of nature. They had plastic cover as disposable bags, dint know how they have water filter system etc.

Overall it does not give you feeling of responsibly managed resort.
They don’t make an impact like the "Serai " resorts do. In India, most of such places lack in creating an experience of a holiday.

First things first......Getting there is easy as long as you follow exactly as directed by the staff of Kadkani. Besides there are Kadkani name boards exactly directling you as you drive........I have to tell you that this is more of an activiy resort rather than a leisure resort (Even though one can comfortably relax here) The warm Coorgi style Welcome is a good feeling..... Do not forget to go Rafting on RIver Kaveri (mother Kaveri to Karnataka) Its an excellent ride. Get into the river even though you do not know to swim. (with life jackets ofcourse) Ask for Ponnapa to take you for rafting. He is an excellent guide. Ponnappa again for Plantation visits. Flora lovers shud take this, and is recomended. Do not take kids below age 6 for plantation walk as they tend to get extremely tired as the walks are up hill / down hill. (if at all you have to take kids below 6 better carry them while you go up hill.

Try river crossing wil Kalappa a good guide at Rafting and crossing. Its memorable. Do carry a video camera to capture these moments. Play golf at the golf course. its a 9 hole gold course and you can try your hand at it. Its really amazing. Try the swimming pool. Its good. Kids will love the kiddy pool.

Now the Give aways.........As far as service goes.....There is absolutely no rrom service. As all the guests are booked in on a Stay-Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner package. And one will have to walk all the way to the restaurant for the morning coffee / Tea. Ofcourse it is served to you room at extra cost !! All that is served to the room is charged extra. This is where I mentioned that this resort is designed as a activity resort and not a leisure one.

Room Tip: Pick the Premium Villas 201 to 208. If its a big family pick the 207-208 connecting room Villas. I...

We had booked this resort thru Rci much upfront. Reaching the place from mangalore was a challenge as it took more than 5hrs to reach that place amidst bad roads,

Pro's :
Great place
Acres of greenery
Has a nice pool, boating, cycling , batminton court, indoor games, and more importantly golf
Golf classes available
Food is great and awesome but a bit limited
Rooms are nice with verandas in the front and back
a small stream of river running across the resort
Staff are polite and courteous 

Con's
Resort is very far, took around 6hrs drive from mangalore
Rooms could have been done better 
Breakfast needs improvement
Poolside changing room is dingy and poorly equipped
Buffets do not have great options
housekeeping needs improvement

A great place to be in with near to zero phone network

Very good welcome, good rooms with basic facilities, no fridge or good TV's nevertheless. Staff if v friendly and homely atmosphere. Natural beauty has been used effectively to enhance the decor of resort which is in banks of river Cauvery and good golf course and trainer aswell. Over all a good experience. Only approach the place via Bangalore and not via Mangalore. Food is also interesting, over all good relaxing experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are v good
