Amazing Getaway with an Inhouse Waterfall!

Posted 20 Aug, 2017

I went there with my office colleagues for a weekend. The location of this homestay is amazing with an in-house waterfall. The location is inaccessible by your own car and the hotel representatives will come to pick you up by jeep. The rooms were decent and clean and have to be booked in advance to avoid any disappointment, especially on long holiday weekends. Food is served in a buffet and can tingle your taste buds. Having bath in te chilled waterfall is a must-do experience and cannot be missed. The best part is there is no mobile network other than BSNL, so you can dedicate all your time for your loved ones. Enjoy! Must Visit!

Posted 23 Jan, 2017

This resort is situated in the middle of forest. Its a decent place to spend time with your family and friends.The main attraction is the water fall inside resort. Rooms are made of wood so its warm inside. Staff is excellent here and service is good. They serve food with good taste.They have activities like rope climbing, fire-camp, trekking and other indoor games.

Awesome resort

Posted 30 May, 2016

Awesome place to spend quality time with family or friends. From the adventurous Jeep ride to the lovely trekking and the falls is rite in the property....amazing place for the price. Recommend everyone to visit. You dont need any activities to spend time cos the water falls is so mesmerising. Do carry a wireless speaker for the camp fire as u may not hear the music too loud..Thanks Jhari!!

Wonderful place

Posted 15 May, 2016

A team of 5 friends, we visited chikmagalur a few days back and thoroughly enjoyed the stay in Jhari Eco stay resorts. The service we received met our expectations. The food provided was filling, included a decent variety and tasty. We were served 3 meals and Coffee/Tea twice a day. The staff is very courteous and friendly. They cater to the guests needs with a smile. The drive from the gate to the room is provided by the resort and it is a thrilling one. Hats off to the driver's precision and skills. Clear water stream flows right beside the resort which is a great place for some water fun. It is clean and well maintained. I would recommend the travelers to make sure their vehicle is in good condition before visiting chikmagalur. The terrain demands good driving skills and an alert mind. Those not confident about it should probably hire a driver. Pack rain friendly items like umbrellas and warm clothes. It will most probably rain every evening. The moist land hosts leeches and travelers must be cautious about them. The resort provides medicine for leech bites and takes precautions as well. A friendly Labrador Lilly, in the resort, adds to the charm. It welcomes all the guests with a lot of energy and also accompanied us during the trek. I would give this place a perfect 5 star rating based on my experience.

Good food and service

Posted 5 Feb, 2016

The Jhari resort, It's about 18kms from Chikmagalur. The location is excellent, it's like staying in a jungle camp. The front desk was very helpful. The rooms are well maintained. We get a feel of ancient times. There is a small falls beside the hotel and we can hear the water fall. It's nice place for trekking. The food was good and the service is excellent .

Conveniently located with spacious rooms

Posted 24 Jun, 2015

The hotel was conveniently located and little far from the city. The staffs of the hotel were good and they were responding to our request. I didn’t face any problem during the check in and checkout process. The room was clean and spacious. The greenery view was seen from my room. I didn’t taste the food because the price was too expensive. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was very nice. The room and the bathroom were cleaned regularly. The amenities were in working condition. The activities were provided by the hotel. I would visit this hotel again.

Excellent Resort for weekend in midst of a dense forest

Posted 23 Mar, 2015

Jhari resort is in midst of a jungle with all facilities available included in a package. The resort has an waterfall which is not allowed to other tourist. One can enjoy ample time here. http://www.jhari.in/ One should definately visit Kemmangundi and mullayangiri peak which is highest peak in Karnataka. On the way view to these peaks are very pleasing. Mullayangiri peak is very much near to the resort about 30min. The resort has good amenities to keep you engaged always. You can have a small trek inside the resort to experience the dense forest. Advice to travellers: It takes around 5 hrs to reach resort from Bangalore via Bangalore-Mangalore route by car. Need to have advance booking of the resort with full payment. There is a checkpoint 8km before the resort. No alcohol is allowed. Police checking is very strict. So plan accordingly. Other details can be seeked from the website above

Quick staff service but average food taste

Posted 31 Dec, 2014

I stayed in the hotel around one and half year back with my family on relaxation trip. There was no road leading to the hotel and the hotel provided pick-up facility. The hotel appearance was good and staff service was quick. The rooms are spacious and well-maintained with amenities like AC and a geyser in working condition. The rooms had falls view. Taste of food was average with limited variety in the menu; both veg and non-veg food was available. Swimming pool, games and gym facility were available. Sightseeing trip will be arranged on request and parking facility was available. There was no delay while check-in and check-out. It is value for money and recommendable for other travellers. To improve the road leading to the hotel.

The food was excellent, tasty and delicious

Posted 18 Sep, 2014

The hotel location was excellent but not close to the railway station or bus stand. It is in the middle of the jungle and that is the beauty of it. The staff there was very helpful and always responded quickly to requests. The hotel appearance overall is good. The rooms were well maintained with a beautiful mountain and waterfall view from the room. The food was excellent, tasty and delicious. No problems were faced in check in or check out. There were adventure sports but no indoor games as such. I would definitely recommend other travelers who are adventurous to visit this hotel.

Weekend with nature

Posted 26 Oct, 2013

Visit to jhari, chikmagalur was a surprise by one of my friend. We never knew about the existence of a beautiful place just about 4 hrs drive from mysore. The pool was really a good one we just felt like as if we were having a good time in a jungle with our friends and good facilities. The bed in the room was very comfortable. The service was courteous and the housekeeping was good. I advice to the travellers to carry a first aid kit alongside and try to reach as early as possible. The meals are of very good quality and quantity and are affordable. The one bad experience we had was for 9 members only 2 cottages were provided and the administration did not allow any discount on tariff.
