I stayed in the hotel on a relaxation trip with my wife on a romantic trip during the month of September 2014. The hotel was a bit difficult to find the hotel. Taste of the food was not good and the variety was average. Staff service in the hotel was good, friendly and helpful. The appearance of the hotel was good. There was no delay while check-in and check-out. The rooms were spacious and well maintained with amenities like AC, TV and the geyser were not working during our stay. There was swimming pool in the hotel. Hassan as a tourist place is good. The hotel is not 100% satisfied for the money paid and recommendable to other travellers. The hotel management should improve the quality of food and the mosquito problem in the hotel. My hometown is Bangalore and the mother tongue is Kannada.
It was a good experience. The road to the resort is excellent. The resort people had sent the exact route map which was very helpful . . The food was good. Service was good. The swimming pool is excellent. The room is average and creeping with tiny insects.
The interior and exterior look of the hotel was good. The hotel was about a kilometre away from the railway station and bus stand. The location of the hotel was good as it was in the city. Food was really good. The quality of food was good and the price was okay. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. They provided the room quickly during check-in procedure. Staff at the hotel was very friendly and co-operative. Washroom and pillows were in good condition. There was no view from the room and they had indoor games.
The Palaka Resorts is off the beaten road. A quaint place. Large grounds with a reservoir on one side and an artificial stream running through the grounds. My room was right next to the reservoir and the constant sound of the gurgling stream was very soothing at night. Its off the highway, a little difficult to find at night (I reached at close to midnight), but has the advantage of zero pollution, sound, light or air borne. Very relaxing and invigorating. There are many activities which I did not have time to enjoy. Tourist destinations such as Belur, Halebid and Shravanabelagola are pretty close by. Its surrounded by pristine green fields which for a person like me, who lives in Bangalore, is a treat to the eyes. The food was surprisingly good. One can actually pre-order what one wants for the next meal and it would generally be done. The manager is a wonderful and extremely helpful ex-navy gentleman. They provide mosquito repellents but one could carry a few more. There are a lot of insects, all harmless. I don't remember getting bitten by any of them. Carry your toiletries even though basic toiletries are provided. Overall it was a good stay and I would love to go back
It was a great holiday with 18 family members. The location of the resort is so good and is away from the didn't we experience on the main roads . . The pool is well maintained, though not temperature controlled Our package was inclusive of food and we all had sumptuous tasty food Though under-staff, the service provided by the staff was good. Owing to staff shortage, there was delay in room service The property is definitely worth the money we pay and the sales staff at their Bangalore office was very courteous If we plan a Hassan trip again, definitely shall check into this property.
The ambience of the resort was quite good. Good photo opportunities. Food was mild like a simple home made food on our request. That was much appreciated rather than oily, heavy cooking. Pool was excellent with fresh water continuously refilled. A good option for a visit.
Well maintained resort, with a good swimming Pool, not very big, but good for playing around in the water. Rooms are very good for people on wheel chair and elders. They have rooms in the Ground floor with a very big bedrooms. Those are very convenient and easily accessible for differently ab led persons. Rooms, Dining area, Indoor Games. (Which we did not use were good) Carry sweaters if you are travelling in rainy or winter seasons. Go with family or with 6+ team. Its a nice place to stay. People are very kind and helpful .
I just wanted to spend quality time with my family without sight seeing. Palaka resort seemed to be ideal with lots of activities thrown in for kids though I was little skeptical as it is not well known. We spent 3 days and time just flew by. The resort offered us spacious room with dish tv and 24 hours power backup. The food was good too luckily no buffet. The service was excellent with lots of personal touch and dishes that were prepared which we liked. The kids enjoyed a lot in the well maintained pool and kids play area. I recommend this place especially if you want to keep your kids happy.
We went there as part of the team outing from my company. This was my 3rd visit to the resort and the previous two were the day trips with friends and families, but this time we decided to stay overnight. It was a pleasant experience for the entire team as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the swimming pool. They have one of the best pools you find in the remote location and is very well maintained. The staff is courteous, honest, sincere and friendly. They will try their best to accommodate all your legitimate requests with smile, be it in the late night or in the early morning. They will do everything to make you feel like a home. The cottages are well designed and spacious and are always kept neat and clean. There is no restriction on how you want to enjoy as well they don't look at the clock for check-in and check-out. They are determined to make your experience wonderful.
Palaka Resorts is a fantastic family vacation spot with something for everyone. The pure surrounding, greenery, lawns and the coconut orchard will refresh you. The lawns have been landscaped so beautifully, that you are bound to click a lot of pictures of the lawn. The various lawn ornaments of different animals are just adorable. In addition, the resort boasts of a complete children’s playground (complete with swing, see-saw, slide, others), private paddle boating, badminton, basketball for those who would like to sport around. There is also a great obstacle course in the Coconut orchard for the brave ones apart from enjoying some great lazy walk-around the beautiful green. There is also a bullock-cart available if you want to experience the \'Village-Transport\'. Being in the middle of the orchards and all the greenery does attract a lot of fauna. You will find some unexpected visitors in your rooms sometimes like frogs jumping around and playing the fool. The staff is very helpful and willing to go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable and memorable. They attend to your needs anytime you call them – night or day. The restaurant is in the center of the resort serving hot simple delicacies. I wish they had served some more variety especially snack. The rooms themselves are very comfortable with all basic amenities along with the satellite connection for those who do not want to miss any of their regular shows, cricket, movies, etc. The view from the front side of the room overlooks the gardens and the rear side overlooks the pond and other orchard. A great view sitting in your bed and sipping hot coffee in the morning. All though there are regular power cuts, the resort is equipped with a full generator ensure no interruption to your fun. There are 2 distinct places near the resort that are worth visiting. There is a small dam and a reservoir about 200m from the resort. The view, walk and trekking around is something I truly enjoyed. It is also an ideal place for small family picnic which the resort staff will be more than happy to pack. The second place is the Ranganaswamy Temple at “Hole Kotte” around 5KM towards Hassan. The drive itself on the highway is beautiful with fields and a railway line passing along where definitely you will see a train go by. It brought back some memories from my childhood. The climb to the temple has surprisingly fantastic roads and a view that you have to visit to appreciate. The temple itself is very well constructed and going by the infrastructure, is very heavily visited. One may want to keep in mind that the template closes around 4:30PM. There is a also a small Ganesh temple on the way to this temple which was also very nice.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the heart of Karnataka architecture, greenery and water. The resort is excellent with good ambience, luxurious facilities, very good food, great activities, friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, kids pool/activities, nice walks around coconut groove, etc. The resort itself is very nicely located close to a backwater and a dam, and is easy to locate as it is just off the Hassan-Mysore highway. We were told to go to Coorg or Chikmagalur, but on suggestion of a friend, ended up visiting this resort about 30 kms from Hassan. We drove down from Bangalore after touring Bangalore. We took the Bangalore-Mangalore road, starting early morning and reaching the resort in 4 hours. Apart from going to Belur, Halebid and Shravanabelagola, we visited Sri Ramadevara Dam, Ramanathpur temples, Gorur Dam, Shettyhalli Church, etc.
Very nice resort for a quiet lazy weekend away from Bangalore. Great unexplored resort which is hardly a year old. Only about a 4 hour drive from Bangalore, with a very nice road (the resort is just off the Mysore-Hassan main road). The resort staff were very friendly and promptly catered to our needs. We spent hours in the swimming pool which also has a kid\'s pool. We visited the historical towns of Shravanabelagola, Belur and Halebid which are only about 50 kms from the resort. So, the stay of 2 nights, 3 days was ideal for us. We had fun, we had some small sightseeing, we relaxed.
