Bethel Home Stay, Coorg
Bethel Estates,Bhiruga Village,Srimangala
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! Home-cooked 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... Mr. 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 wth all the info needed to enjoy the place. The place bethel homestay/Camp/resort 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. Definately 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 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

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,availablity 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 cant 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.! :)
We were just wondering to reach the destination.... location itself is a remote place and i just loved it.... so silence n staff here is vry obliging.... a person called majid his hospitality towards guest is outrageous. Here dont caryy any speakers nature itself produce trans music. My suggestion is jst hit the place to jst experience the vibrant nature.... pin drop silence ssssshhhhh.....
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.
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..
