“Most horrible place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

We went to this resort in Aug 2011 (Sunday, day trip). This is the most pathetic resort in Bangalore. It was horribly crowded, worse than public places. Food was crap and we have to wait in a long queue to get what they call as food! Indoor games....few TT tables and carrom kept in a cow shed. Darts board hanging on a dirty wall surrounded by filth. Outdoor games.....ground where hundreds of people doing something. Swimming pool hahaha worse than whatever you can imagine, changing room....one stinking dirty room is called as changing/shower room. Staff is rude. There is nothing good at that place. I can surely say that all good review posted here are written by resort management only. No sane person can like this place. Avoid at all cost!

good thing about Guhantara is , you have loads of activities to keep you active and relaxed.
Food is OK.
Family guys, pls avoid the visit during Fridays. Fully crowded with corporate team outing.
Rooms are decent with ethnic feel but looks dull ! Though, did not stay in the room, had a look around.
Location seems to be a problem. Totally remote and no access to anything.
And approach road while nearing the resort is very bad.
Finally, the value of the money is an issue here ! Watch out...

Room Tip: Dont miss the Pool(almost like a private pool on weekdays)

The best part of this resort is the entrance to the main dining hall and the other part is the water falls in the main dining area. Thats it. I stayed overnight in one of the rooms called Lithic Suite and it is way too expensive ... Rs 5000 + tax (17%) . The cave type ambience is good inside the room but the room is not so clean. If you expect spic-and-span cleanliness then this place is not for you. Bathroom design is good but everything has become old and not maintained well. Rusted shower, bath tub without stopper, no bathroom accessories except one small soap and Rs.1.50 shampoo sachet. Food is ok and not so great.

Guhantara: Deluxe Room : "good place for relaxing"
Date: 27 Nov 2010
We booked this hotel for my wedding anniversary for 1 night in Bangalore mainly based on its review on TripAdvisor. And it is a unique little gem, really.

This was the perfect match for my requirement of a quiet and unique experience.
We as a family really loved it, i have been traveling world wide but never came across as amazing as this one, i mean you are really inside a cave.

We reached in the afternoon, enjoyed the surroundings, green rooftop which gives you a feel of a green golf course, took lot pictures and then in evening we came out again and took par in the out door activities, you can spend time playing cricket, motor biking, horse riding, archery etc, there is enough for a family to enjoy.

Food was also good, but the only thing was i made a ad-hoc request of cake and candle and they could not arrange it on a short notice as it is a remote area.

One more surprising fact is i call a Meru cab and they dropped us and also came to pick us up, this place was almost 25 Km from Jayanagar Bangalore.

Also when you are inside the room make sure you dont open the lower door, this is to make sure that you dont have a uninvited guest (reptiles etc).

One more thing if you want to pay by credit card then you will have to shell out 4% extra, also keep sufficient cash as in case there machine not working you cant reach to ATM as it is really in a remote area.

The rooms are very dark and cave like, so you might just hate it or like me just loved it. I believe everything in the room was tastefully designed and gives the sense of a cave.
Since we were in a large group we totally enjoyed the weekend night. But Sunday mornings are packed with guests who arrive in groups and things get really messy.
