I visited with a large group of students conducting field work. Sujatha was very hospitable and extremely patient given our heavy workload​. The meals were always excellent and locally grown. The cabins and tents are very outdoorsy, not for people looking for a resort with regular hotel rooms.

This is a very beautiful place. The scent of nature and the plants around you makes this awesome. Stay overnight and experience the nature. There are nature walks and the stream next to this place. The people there are just wonderful. The food was home cooked and just too yum... Loved the hospitality

If you are looking for a place that will wake you up from your urban slumber, this is it. Simple place, simple food, lots to discover and (if you want to) do! Gentle gurgling stream, lots of plant life, some interesting animal life. Treks to take close by that will rejuvenate you.

Want to support ecological accomodation and live a very inspiring, relaxing, and healthy experience? This is the perfect place. This biological spice plantation is a masterpiece of sustainable ecosystem management with advanced microbiology knowledge. I slept in a well arranged tent surrounded by birds who enchanted my sleep! The food was excellent, healthy and mostly local and biological. The volunteers...

We recently stayed at this so called retreat Eco place. I have to say it's overrated and definitely not for us. It's ok to be environmentally friendly and things are simple. but I just hope the linens, the pillows and the mattresses are clean. Somehow the place reminds me of the emperor's new clothes story. I am sorry but I...

We found Rainforest Retreat through the Lonely Planet and are so happy we made the visit. After close to two months in India, this was my first deep nature experience and it did not disappoint. Fabulous walking trails for self-guided enjoyment and a great walk led by staff. Comfortable accommodation in the cottage and a pleasure to be with limited...

We went for lunch. This place is situated in Madikeri city. Ordered Mutton rogan josh and Prawn ghee roast. Both the dishes were amazing, tasty. We loved it. Ambience was standard. Service was good, as expected in time. We enjoyed our lunch.

I took a long time to review Rain Forest Retreat. But I am happy to realise that I remember every bit of our experience spent in RFR almost 1 year back. We visited the place last year end of December with another friends. December is approaching so the urge of going back to that magical place has drove me to...

“If you come with children the deluxe room will be a good choice. If you are a couple which want a bit more quiet space I think the Plantation Cottage is a better choice. There are few tents as well as another cottage for more long term staying which you can do self catering if you want.”
