Haritha is a basic resort, at a cool, picturesque location on top of Horseley Hills. I found the view from the top of the hills to be simultaneously breathtaking & serene. It's a place to "be", not to "do". I spent an evening perched on a rock atop the hill, watching the sun go down the horizon & the valley lighting up in the dark.
The cottages, food and service are all basic, no-frills. There is water scarcity in this area, with people having to carry water in buckets to the rooms higher up the hill for basic needs. The staff is decent & functional, not very courteous or helpful.
There is a conference hall, swimming pool, ayurveda centre and a games field for outdoor team-building activities. I didn't use any of these, so I can't comment on the quality of these services.
The 3 - 3.5 hr drive from Bangalore to Horseley Hills was uneventful, thanks to fellow TripAdvisors' tips about uneven speedbreakers near the hill.
Overall, a nice, relaxing weekend getaway from Bangalore's hassle.More
