This has been one of the most memorable trip and a excellent place for relaxing amid Greenery and peace. Mr Rakesh the host has excellent knowledge about the place and its surrounding and guided us with all the info needed to enjoy the place. The place bethel whatever we choose to say is excellent.

We stayed there for 1day and 1night on 13 Jan 2017. It was located in coffee estates. Beautiful place for photoshoot. Very much suitable for honeymoon couple. Service was very good. Food (veg and non veg) also delicious. Trekking was adventurous with site owner Rakesh ji in Brahmagiri forest. Campfire also. I will give rating 10/10. Srinivasa Reddy Hyderabad 9989000823

This time we stayed in Bethel 2, one more fantastic natural beauty. Dear Rakesh hats off to you. Friends B2 is best place to stay with very nice, clean and tidy rooms. The food, the smile on their faces all the time, the variety, availability at odd ours, service, quality, arrangements, support. Oh its endless service hospitality words which will be only available with Mr. Rakesh ... Great place
I thought no body cooked better than my mother .. But mr. Rakesh from bethel home stay Coorg, I can't say a word. :( Missing you. Amazing resort .. No bike, horn sound. Could only see nature talking to us .. Peace out for 2 days alone. The food is amazing. Wow its unlimited and the people there were serving with love. And also to mention Driver Mr Ismail, So energetic and is driving to places for reasonable cost.
We went as a group of 7 friends for the long weekend. After hours of travelling and some trouble in finding the exact location, we were welcomed by the owner, Mr. Rakesh. As we took in the beauty of the place and the coziness of the rooms, we were served a really delicious meal enough to feed an army. Despite being as hungry as wolves after our long journey, we couldn't finish all that food .!! Thye variety and taste were commendable. The rooms were well furnished and really cozy. Rakesh sir also organized trekking and rafting for us, which was the adventure of a lifetime .! The humbleness of the staff and the hospitality which they showed to us cannot be fully expressed. Network was a bit of issue, but then that's the dream, to cut off with the world and enjoy with oneself. I loved my experience at this place and would recommend it to all those who look towards a peaceful and fun filled stay at Coorg .! :)
I had visited this hotel with my family. The hotel atmosphere was good. I went to this hotel by private vehicle. There was no delay in check in and checkout in this hotel. The behaviour of staff’s good in the hotel. The room was spacious, neat and clean in the hotel. The food quality was good in this hotel. I had booked this room by online. The activity was available at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers.
We were just wondering to reach the destination. Location itself is a remote place and I just loved it. So silence and staff here is very obliging. A person called majid his hospitality towards guest is outrageous. Here don't carry any speakers nature itself produce trance music. My suggestion is just hit the place to just experience the vibrant nature. Pin drop silence.
The hotel was located near to the railway station. The hotel had provided a parking facility. The surrounding of the hotel was very clean. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was well maintained. The behaviour of the staffs was kind and friendly. There was no delayed in check in and checkout process. The room given to me was spacious and the bathroom was tidy. All the amenities were worked well. The hot water facility was there at the hotel. The laundry service was provided by the hotel. The view from my balcony was fine. The quality of food was better and the taste was delicious. The price of food was affordable. The hotel had not organized any activities. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.
Guys the best place to stay in Coorg. It doesn't matter with whom you go, wither with your friends, family & couple you will enjoy the stay. This home stay is situated inside the forest where. The owner of the home stay Mr. Rakesh was very carrying and cooperative. From Mysore to Coorg he guided us how to come easily. So no need to use your Google maps. The food was awesome. Three times a day which is unlimited you get. Both veg & non veg. Yummy foods they give. Even the attitude of the people who work there is good. I suggest you people can go and experience the feel staying in Bethel home stay. But do prepare your self with power banks for charging your mobiles. This place doesn't have a electric supply. Only way is you have to give your mobile to home stay people, they will charge the mobile somewhere out and will give it.
Top Reviews of Bethel Home Stay
I had been to Bethel along with my family and friends in Mar 2013. I have selected this place based on the review. After reaching this place, we realized how true all these reviews which were written by previous visitors and i was happy that i have really selected a very good place for our vacation. I must admire Mr. Rakesh and his team who run this homestay, for the unlimited service they provided. The host Mr.Rakesh would make sure that each and everyone needs whether you require hot water or lukewarm water, milk for kids, curd rice whatever it is. Kudos to Rakesh and his team. We started from Bangalore around 6AM morning. By 6:45AM I got a call from Mr.Rakesh and asked us about our whereabouts. Afterwards he kept on calling for every 45 mins to make sure that we were driving on the right direction till we reached there. We reached this place around 1 PM and Mr. Rakesh welcome us with lemon juice. In another 1 hour he has arranged for very delicious lunch. Then he inquired about our plans about visiting nearby places and he had guided what are all the spots we can cover during our stay. We were treated as if we were staying on our own place. I have not seen or experienced such kind of care and hospitality by anyone else. The food was awesome, rich breakfast, masala omelette, both south Indian and north Indian dishes. Evenings we had varieties of unlimited snacks, starters amidst bonfire.. I really don't know how Rakesh and team were able to provide such an awesome food in the thick forest. We had never seen Rakesh saying no to our needs. Next day Mr.Rakesh took us for early morning trekking and had good breakfast. Later he took us to small stream close to the resort. We liked the stream very much especially my daughter. In fact he taught swimming to everyone of us very patiently which is unforgettable in our life time. During our whole stay he was telling about the nearby spots, different types of animals, birds & their behaviours and natures. In fact he was educating us about natures. The location is wonderful amidst forests, very close to nature. There are plantations around and morning experience was very pleasant with chirp of birds. The rooms were spacious with both western and Indian commodes and kept very clean. We had most memorable and fantabulous experience at Bethel Homestay. I am waiting my next visit to Bethel. I highly recommend that it is really worth visiting this place no matter whether you want to do trekking, river rafting or relaxation. Best Experience : Food, Early Morning trekking within the resort, Enjoyable nature, Stream close to the resort. Worst experience : None.
It was my fourth stay at Bethel. Would describe it as a camp that has more nature than you can expect. As kids we always wanted to camp outside and had few places that we could go to. Well, Bethel is something that has been created for us and if you want to be in company of nature you just need to call Rakesh and have couple of alternate dates handy as its always full, tell him 'saar swalpa adjust madi plzzz' and Rakesh will accommodate and will not disappoint. Bethel should be experienced and not described in detail as one would otherwise miss the excitement. However as I call it a camp thus it has everything that one would need with abundance of nature tucked away into a Hill slope with a breathless view of brahmagiri Hill range, endless chirping of birds through out the day, and as day sets in, its silence and you hear water flow in nearby river (must visit and take a dip), of course now you can also hear sounds of cricket an occasional gun shot at a distance, oh Some one just shot a wild boar or scared a wild animal away in near by plantations. You need to trek the Estate and you will not go to a gym again (lol). That's enough I guess. You need something to munch away as you will need to keep your engine running. Was pampered with a good spread of Breakfast, Lunch and dinner. Of course never ending hot pakodas that went perfect with my Peter Scot (Whisky) switched to Hercules Deluxe (Rum) the next day as Bheem Singh (chef from Himalayas) never stopped the fire and perfectly suited the chill. So Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks on call is what you get to be with nature and ohhh no dieting and calculating calories reason you will burn it out in an hour :). So Friends be with nature, refresh, recharge at Bethel Home Stay and get back to your respective routine to come back again for a refuel at no frills genuine nature camp. Rakesh has handcrafted this camp for you.
This was a really impressive resort. We stayed 3 nights, received first class service throughout our stay!!! It took us such a long time to decide for this resort as there are so many to choose from in Coorg, but I'm glad we did the right one... The reviews weren't lying!!! Super rooms, pretty trees all around, it's not a huge property by any means, so you really get looked after. Very hospitable and amiable host Mr. Rakesh thanks to him, our stay was well planned out and made good use of time I sincerely wished we could have stayed longer, he provides a wide range of food and snacks throughout the day which is always fresh, hot and tasty; it is hard to believe that one can get such variety and taste food in such a location, but I guess that's Rakesh for you; from the time we started till we landed he guided us over the phone throughout the route, at Kutta, his person, Manju was ready to pick us up even though we were delayed, one must not miss out on the white water rafting which is an experience of a lifetime it is very safe, led by well trained guides and worth every buck, also the location is wonderful amidst forests.. More over I celebrated my birthday along with my stay, Rakesh arranged KESARI CAKE which was new for all of us, just loved the whole experience it is really worth visiting this place. I highly recommend Bethel Home Stay.
we have been on a 4 day trip to coorg. Mr. Rakesh, a true entrepreneur, arranged the whole trip for us from pickup at Mysore to his homestay and back. The most amazing part is his personal touch to the guests has made the stay awesome. He even accompanied us to the trek in his area which is 44 acres, the bambunji river, even to a wild safari. and let's not forget he is a good spotter too, which helping us in seeing deers, bison, elephant, boars, wild dogs etc. let's come to the food being served....words fall short of praising the menu and sumptuous food...kebabs, onion pakoda, chilli pakoda, paneer pakoda, gulab jamun, payasam are few of the starters...lunch & dinner includes chinese, north indian, south indian and even some coorgi special items.....the tree house where we stayed was an awesome experience alltogether with the hut swaying to the tunes of the wind and mind it, it's having an english toilet...the rustic finish alltogether has made the stay in the forest an amazing experience alltogether. In the evenings you can find yourself humming or dancing around the bonfire..in the absence of electrical gadgets one cannot feel boredom setting in. Last but not the least, should not forget to mention about Kurkule and Blacky, who are basically the heart of the homestay....they are such adorable beings that I was virtually in tears on my way back to Chennai....Long live Kurkule & Blacky and may god bless u both..
I stayed for 3 days at the Bethel home stay with my extended family. We were a total 23 people. The group ranged from age 7 to 78 and there was something for everyone. The stay was really nice and so was the staff, in the end I was almost sorry to leave. Upon arriving I found myself in a valley of Bramahagiri with very scenic views, and a lovely monsoon kept playing hide and seek with us for whole 3 days. The kids in our group enjoyed the food, weather, and the nature. They could always be found on the macchan looking for better views and they even built their own dam at a nearby stream. The owner of the property, Mr. Rakesh is a very friendly and customer centric person. He was very caring towards kids and took every opportunity to guide them & teach them about nature. He personally accompanied us on our trekking and rafting activities which was too generous. The rooms (Bamboo Cottages) were clean and spacious. The bathroom was also spacious and very clean. I stayed in the tree house with my wife and couldnâ€™t contain my surprise when I saw an attached western toilet in the tree house. The food was lovely, very rich and tasty breakfast, I loved scrambled mushroom omelette. The sweet dishes after dinner were also fantastic. Since I was on trekking/rafting holiday I had planned on losing some weight, but with each dinner Iâ€™m sure I did quite the opposite. I have been visiting Coorg from the past 12 years and stayed at almost all kind of properties. This, by far was my best experience. My hearty congratulations to the management for their choice of personnel. They know how to really make you feel at home, and if you need anything it is like asking a family member. Way to go, guys, you were fantastic.
