“Great Getaway for a quiet romantic getaway”
Reviewed 11 November 2009

We booked our getaway through Ocio Hospitality (www.ocioindia.com). We initially wanted to go to Coorg, but Ocio suggested that we go to Palaka Resorts (www.palakaresorts.com) near Hassan.

The resort is only about a 4 hour drive from Bangalore, with a very nice road (the resort is just off the Mysore-Hassan main road). We started at 6 am and reached at 10 am, after stopping for breakfast near Nelamangala.

(a) Very nice resort for a quiet lazy weekend away from Bangalore. Fresh new unexplored resort which is hardly a year old.
(b) The resort staff were very friendly and promptly catered to our needs.
(c) We spent hours in the swimming pool which also has a kid's pool.
(d) We visited the historical towns of Shravanabelagola, Belur and Halebid which are only about 50 kms from the resort. So, the stay of 2 nights, 3 days was ideal for us.
(e) We had fun, we had some small sightseeing, we relaxed.
(f) When it rains, the greenery around is fabulous, the nearby dam was filled with water.
(g) Lots of activities to do: swimming; rope climbing; visit to the nearby dam and lake; pedal boating within the resort; tractor ride; walk through the coconut groove, etc.
(h) The food was very well prepared with less oil and very tasty.
(i) Nursing that drink when seated on the sitout and watching the sunset.
(j) The power supply was erratic, but the backup generator was a saving grace.

  • Liked — Fresh new resort amidst greenery and nature. Great value for money, good service & food. Friendly staff.
  • Disliked — Erratic power supply
  • Stayed October 2009, travelled with family
