Posted 1 Sep, 2009

My husband and I went on a vacation to Sparsa Resort for 2 nights and 3 days a month back and found the place amazing. Extremely sparkling clean, lovely big and clean rooms, very calm atmosphere and pollution free surrounding. Lot of inhouse activities like mehandi, milking the cow, yoga, gym, swimming pool, pot making, indoor games, bullock cart ride, parrot astrology etc - all these free of cost for people staying there. Food is awesome, excellent quality and taste and very good overall hospitality of attenders

Great resort. New and fresh. Friendly staff and Excellent service. Ideal for a relaxing getaway from crowds, noise and work. Leave your mobile phone and blackberry back home. One can think of it as a lazy relaxing vacation with lot of culture to absorb. If you want a break, this is an ideal location. Also, not very far from Bangalore or Chennai. Nice drive. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

The activity was arranged by the hotel. The food facility was good in the hotel. I had visited this hotel with my family. The room was spacious with clean. Behaviour of the staff was friendly and co-operative. I went to this hotel by my own vehicle. Parking facility was available at the hotel. Temple was nearby the hotel.

An Eco Resort Experience

Posted 6 Dec, 2017

The property is located in Thiruvanamalai. And wasn't a planned trip as we just came by to visit the Sri Ramana Maharshi Ashram and we were supposed to return back but made an impromptu stop over. And to begin with the experience, from the main road it's about half a km to the Sparsa. The roads aren't that comfortable but the property being an eco resort definitely gives you the feel even before you enter. The check in was smooth and we were directed towards our room. The rooms are pleasant and calm, spacious enough to move around. The bedroom type is a low bed and had good comfy linens. The bathrooms are well kept and hot water through out the day. The mini bar isn't stocked, no complains though. The resort ambience is green and well maintained with soothing meditating sounds all along the day. The swimming pool was lovely, dipped in for like hours and didn't know how time flew. The in-room dining was with very little options but worked well enough for us. Missed the breakfast spread but the lunch was mesmerizing, A perfect south indian vegetarian delicacy and they served the best. The resort also has various activities and few of them include pottery making, yoga, flower binding, parrot astrology :P and also a tea kadai (Tea shop) which serves complimentary tea in the evening. Overall, the experience was good. Would recommend this for any traveler visiting around thiruvanamalai and perfect for families and couples.
