All the staff working here are actual tribals from neighborhood, gives a rustic authenticity to the place. The staff is very courteous. 2. We got all the arrangements,...

We went for a 2 night/3 day outing with friends. A very nice and different place. Each Cottage has 4 beds, one double bed and 2 individual beds in the mezzanine floor. This Mezzanine floor within the cottage is a good design. Rooms are clean and tidy for a place near a jungle. Don;t expect the tidiness of a star...

This place is located in the middle of BR reserve. As with most jungle places, do not expect ultra luxury, just enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds you. We had stayed in a cottage which was quite spacious and clean. Hot water was not a problem as they had geysers. BSNL and Airtel networks available. Wifi at reception. Food is...

The eco Resort is on a hill side, has a bunch of cottages in a row and A central dining area. Will recommend this place during off season, avoid busy crowded weekends. It was nice to sleep on hammock under the trees and freely interact with the staff. BR Hills makes for a nice drive when the traffic is not...

We stayed here for 2 nights during the long weekend of Diwali and Nov 1, we were looking for a place near to Bangalore so that we could save ourselves from the noise and pollution during Diwali. The resort is surrounded by forest and we could see and hear birds singing through out the day. Rooms are spacious, with a...

Had amazing experience staying there one night.Food quality and taste needs to improve. The cultural event was good. The bird watching activity was good, should improve with the safari. The spa experience is nice. Price is quite high at present. The rooms are great. Night was a bit scary since its inside jungle.

Gorukana experience was very good, we spent one night at the resort. The resort is nestled among very tall trees and all the cottages are facing a valley. The rooms have mezzanine floor with the bedding which is unique and gives a different feel. The bed and rooms are clean and spacious. Food is good, do not expect a large...

The booking process was a bit tedious since their website was out of order when I was trying to book. Somehow managed to booked a tree house for a day. When we went there, we were told that there was impending plumbing work which was being undertaken at the tree house, due to which, we were requested to stay at...

Gorukana 's location is right below the Biligiriranganatha Swamy temple amidst real forest land. It is in fact a short uphill walk to the temple. Wild Boars, deer and the occasional elephant (or herd) wade through in close vicinity and sometimes right next to your cottages! This place is run entirely by locals or Soligas who are excellent hosts. They...
