We are about 15 people, of the family. It was a Wonderful Stay. This is third visit to Bethel Home Stay. Rakesh as usual was a Great Host. Very good Cottages with mix of Rugged and Modern Facilities. Food was the Ultimate with Great Taste, Varieties and not to mention the no of items. In spite of constant rains, The Service was exemplary. We had lot of fun singing, dancing and they had campfire in the dining area. Thanks once again rakesh for a Wonderful Experience.
I have been fortunate to have been experiencing Rakesh's hospitality at Bethel Estate since more than 10 years. I have visited Bethel 5 to 6 times and Bethel 2 recently. There has never been a dip in the quality of service and food. The location is amazing, this place is a must visit during monsoon if you are interested in rafting at Barpole rivier, after rafting there is always sumptuous lunch waiting for you. You will be spellbound by the variety of veg and non-veg starters and even the main course at lunch and dinner and even the breakfast options. Whenever I change the organization, I make it a point to take my team to this place. I have never received any negative feedback from the team and they have thanked me for taking them to this gem in Coorg and introducing them to Rakesh . . After visiting Bethel so many times, Rakesh has become more of a friend than a host. Its always interesting to talk to him on variety of topics, he has lot of interesting things to share about nature, wildlife and travel.
A visit that will go down as the best ever memory. Everything about the place makes you want to go there again and again. Best host, most delicious food, amazing cottages. Its best experienced than explained. Trekking, river, falls, bonfire, evening snacks, tree house, Swiss cottage, wooden cottage. Must try foods- Pork, prawns. Don't think twice to go there. I'm Planning my fourth vacation there soon!
This place is nestled in the tranquil coffee estates of Srimangala in Coorg district. The Nagarhole tiger reserve is very close to this place and hence, it would not be a surprise to see animals around. It is an ideal place for travelers who are seeking to be with nature. Our host, Mr. Rakesh, is an amazing person! He is a travel enthusiast himself. Words are not enough to describe the fabulous hospitality extended to us during our stay. We are really happy that we visited the place and we will definitely visit again. The food is simply awesome! Overcooked food which makes you feel welcomed and loved. The accommodation is nice with clean rooms, clean linen and clean toilets. There is also a tree-house with an attached toilet. The staff are very friendly, helpful and prompt. Activity - River rafting, trekking and visit to the coffee plantations. Kudos to Mr. Rakesh & team, you guys are great! Keep up the good work !!
Was recommended by my friend who had visited years back. In fact he recalled his experience even after years of his stay, such was his experience and mine is not much different . Mr. Rakesh has helped me plan my vacation not only at Bethel Home in Coorg, but he helped me plan my vacation for a good 8 days. From Kannur to Coorg to Ooty to Mysore Rakesh has a very good parcel of land. Forest. Natural habitat spread over 65 acres . The nature is not interrupted with artificial roads and infra apart from nature viewing cottages. The stay was special as all the ingredients were in balance - right from the choice of period - Aug 12, 13 & 14 (though I was lucky and thank the rain gods for not disrupting the holiday) - it was all green, the shrilling sound of nature by Cicada insects and a perfect owner / host along with his team :). You can have a good close view of the coffee & pepper plantations in the property along with a 3 to 4 kilometer trek (to & fro) spearheaded by Mr. Rakesh for about 2 hours to start your day !. I was told about great food for non vegetarians, but I must say that the food was sumptuous for vegetarians as well. The only complaint I have is that the quantity of food was just too much for a family of 3 where my daughter is just 3 !. There are quiet a few places that will take away all your time, if you think that you do not want to stay confined to the property & forest all day Great food led by Mr. Bhagat Singh (had the opportunity to have kheer prepared by Mr. Rakesh as well) . Room services by Kadak Singh and Arun have special mention as well . Thus, all in all I can suggest this place for a good time with excellent hospitality!
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 . The food served was awesome and all the items can be rated very high without doubt . Mr. Rakesh was very helpful and even helped us with the rafting booking near to his property . What to expect:. Great Host. Awesome Good. Clean rooms. Activity wise make sure you have agenda yourself or if you just want to be away from noise and dust, this place should be your first choice . Definitely I would recommend to my friends and family and would love to go back to this place.
We stayed there for 1day and 1night on 13 January 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
Just an amazing place to stay - a perfect getaway from city life. The service was really nice with amazing cooks who came with a smile every single time with loads and loads of delicious food and snacks - the best Will be going back soon :). I highly recommend this stay for everyone who wants to enjoy nature & good food.
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 wanted our vacation to be completely different. We wanted to just relax and do what we wanted to do rather than what our operators or the others wanted us to do. So we decided that we go to a place which is unconventional and out of the box . We heard about the bethel home stay at Coorg and we decided to test this place. This place is totally unconventional. We were provided with the choice of attached room with basic amenities such as bed and some comfortable sitting arrangement to relax. Just a partition with mats that divide the relaxing place with the wash room. The place is completely audible across. You have a choice of the cottages, handmade, with basic requirements. He walk around places are completely basic and you are in touch with the mother nature at all times . . Sitting in the basic wooden bench and sitting arrangement were made by bare hands leaves makes you feel to be in touch with the nature and the chirping of the birds. The scenic beauty in the front offers excellent beauty of the mountains and the greenery. You are completely detached with the world with no communication with the outer world. You do not get papers, radio, tv, Mobile connection (only if you are lucky). The master of the location - Mr. Rakesh - is always there to give you company. Down to earth, with hell of a lot of information about the place is always there. He is not at all in a hurry and always there to provide any type of information you need. Food, you get much more than what you need and you expect, cooked by the Host, well supported with his trusted men, which are about 8 persons . For nature lovers this is the best location. You need not think twice if you want to be in the midst of nature and bask in nature . This is not a place for a place who are looking for any type of expectations. If you want to be in touch with nature and enjoy adventure and lots of hiking this is the place, go ahead and have a great holiday.
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 minutes 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 amongst 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 amongst 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.
We found about Bethel Home stay from a friend. I traveled with my wife to "Bethel Home stay". We started from Bangalore at 7am and reached there at 1 pm. Rakesh, the owner, called us at regular intervals to ensure we were on the correct way . . The place is inside the Brahmani forests and owner Rakesh send a person at Kutta bus stand to pick us up. Only SUVs can reach his place due to road conditions, but someone from the home stay will whole heatedly pick you up in the jeep. You can leave your car on Kutta bus stand . The place itself is totally cut off from the concrete jungle. No phone network or electricity, though there are solar panels which are usable for lights in night and laptop / phone charging. We stayed in the treehouse which was very cosy and you could see the Nilgiris from the balcony. Rakesh and his staff showed excellent hospitality and made sure we were totally comfortable. The whole time, we felt as if we are at our home. The food was mouth watering, especially the mushrooms which were locally picked. Rakesh ensured that everyone's needs were met. He would provide you whatever your need be, from hot water to milk for children . After our lunch Rakesh asked about our plans for the day and even accompanied us for jungle trip. He has eyes of an eagle and ensured that we don't miss any wildlife . The dinner was around a campfire which was an exhilarating experience . Next morning Rakesh showed us a small stream of river where we could enjoy nature. Totally worth place to visit.
After a long and hectic work week, we took a break to Coorg. First place that was suggested Bethel home stay. Went with three friends, I bet anyone would love to stay there. Too good, we had an unforgettable stay. Awesome food and service. No network (one of the reasons we choose this place). During night its complete dark with millions of glow worms and small solar powered LED's, its magic. The only advice I will give is be prepared to extend your stay, plan during Kinkily or winters. Days are hot but nights are chilly. Spend a night at bethel.
Travelling to such an exotic place, in the nature's bed and then getting awesome food(Chicken kabab, different kinds of rice and many other stuff), makes the scenario heavenly. Just staying at that place with such quality facilities, takes your whole exertion off and gives you peace of mind. Apart from these, I went trekking, which was Too good, the path was such a good mix of deep Jungle and cliffs. There are many other places like Iruppu falls, Rajiv Gandhi National Park and many more to visit. I went there for the first time, Now making it an annual thing. When next time I visit, I would like to go on other Treks and rafting, which I missed this time.
