"Superb resort"

Posted 23 Jan

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 16 Jun, 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 you may not hear the music too loud .. Thanks Jhari !!

"Wonderful place"

Posted 14 Jun, 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 3 Mar, 2016

The Jhari resort, is about 18 kms 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 waterfall. It's nice place for trekking. The food was good and the service is excellent.

"Conveniently located with spacious rooms "

Posted 9 Jul, 2015

The hotel was conveniently located and little far from the city. The staff of the hotel were good and they were responding to our request. I didn't face any problem during the check-in and check-out 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 and the activities were provided by the hotel and 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. One should definitely visit Kemmangundi and Mullayyanagiri peak which is highest peak in Karnataka. On the way view to these peaks are very pleasing. Mullayyanagiri 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 check-point 8km before the resort. No alcohol is allowed. Police checking is very strict. So plan accordingly.

"The hotel is value for money & recommendable"

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

The hotel was located in a convenient place. Staff service was friendly, helpful and quick service. The rooms were spacious and well-maintained with basic amenities, they follow ecstasy there were no AC and TV facility in the room. The rooms were cottage type. Taste of food was good. There was no delay while check-in and check-out. There was a waterfall and children's play area with good outdoor activities in the hotel. The travel desk facility was available. It is value for the money paid and recommendable to other travellers. A suggestion to the hotel they should advertise the resort. My hometown is Chitradurga.

"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.

"Excellent rooms & clean rooms"

Posted 26 Dec, 2014

The hotel is in a remote place with no coverage and eco-friendly. The hotel has a restaurant and the food was prepared according to our requirement and the food was very excellent. The room was very neat and clean. There was an Ayurvedic doctor in case of any sickness. They have their own vehicle to reach the location and any other sightseeing places. It was worth paying and recommendable to others. It was a relaxation trip with my friends.

"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.
