“A well-appointed homestay with lots to discover within close proximity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Skanda is our best find of a homestay in Coorg. A quick drive from Mysore, Skanda's location at Tithimathi is at the entrance to the Nagarhole National Park which allows lots of activities to be fitted in. From walks, fishing, bird-watching, to taking a guided tour of the coffee processing unit, it is all available within the large estate. Apart from these, the jungle safari at the Nagarhole NP or the Namdroling Tibetan monastry is a half day's itinerary from this homestay. The elephant feeding at the Tithimathi elephant camp is another highlight and an unique experience.
The rooms here are stylish, spacious and well kept, food is homestyle and authentic, while the service is attentive and always with a smile.
We've been here several times with family and friends since 2009 and its got better with each stay!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2011

It is a decent place to stay, but I wouldn't rate it as worth the money that we paid. Due to the conditions of the road (which is extremely bad), I would say that the location is not good and there are not too many things that you can do around. Food was good, but the rooms (bathrooms, bed, linens) could be maintained better. It felt like the owners do concentrate much on its maintenance. The hosts were and took care of us, but during the night they were nowhere to find (they have intermittent power failures and I couldn't understand why the generator wont start automatically in the night).
