The first thing that strikes you about Golden Plams is the ghastly ambience. There is too much of everything - whether it is the surfeit of trees or the huge swimming pool. The rooms are very average and it is just not value for money. Angsana Spa which is nearby offers much better value for money. The food was the only saving grace

I went to Golden Palms twice in Oct for off-site programs. I was returning there after a couple of years. The ambience has been maintained the same. The buffet spread at Cafe Solaire on all days across breakfast, lunch and dinner was excellent. The room was spacious - good for the twin sharing that we had planned. The facilities are good - swimming pool, gym and games area. Didn't use the spa this time so can't comment on whether the standard has been maintained. Getting there can be a bit of a pain since the flyover has been completed but not yet inauguarated. The last stretch of 1.5 km has always been pretty bad.

We had conducted a two day business training event at this hotel. The venue was great and the ambiance simply superb. We couldn't spend much time to enjoy the various facilities like the spa etc, but we had good time at the pool, and at the 3 cafes they have and of course, the bar. Also, the management claims the pool is the biggest in Asia and it probably is.

The food was specially arranged for us for supper and so, it was definitely good. Even the complimentary breakfast, and the buffet lunch were great. Various cuisines to suit everyone's palette and if you have time, you can get complimentary relaxation message at the spa.

There are many business centers also available and we used a normal sized one, enough for about 30 people. The place is perfect for trainings and the seminars etc.

The room was simply exemplary, with well controlled AC and good quality of the beds. We all had good some there in the 2 days we spent there. The only bad point about this place was that it is located way outside of the city, though you could use the toll road to get there faster.

Overall, very good value for money.

If you are a foodie, then it’s not the place for you, if you are a pure vegetarian then forget. This was the place my company chose for an offsite meet. This is on tumkur road from Bangalore, quite away from the busy life of city.

All south Indian and north Indian food tasted differently missing their original taste. My non vegetarian colleagues were also not happy with the food.

All other things were good. it’s a nice place away from Bangalore, cool, calm and peaceful. The swimming pool here is quite large and we thoroughly enjoyed our games of water polo.

We visited this resort for a business meeting. Located at about 30 km from Bangaloru city on the outskirt of Tumkur Road. It has an excellent landscaping. Large rooms are facing towards the biggest (as claimed by the management) swiming pool and very close to the mother nature. Although name is "Golden Palm" but actually has golden coconut trees through out the resort. One can relax forgetting the busy city life. There are excellent outdoor and indoor games, spa, 800m jogging track, gymnasium etc. facilities.
Food is not very tasty and also repeatative within a day. Room, house keeping service is also not up to the mark. Several follow ups are to be made for simple service. Banquet hall is not maintained (stuffy). Staff needs training.
Location and atmosphere is very conducive to relax tension minus service.
