"A comfortable stay "

6.0/7
Posted 1 Dec, 2015

Beautiful and serene place full of lush greenery and all that you can hear is the sound of the flowing water from the Tunga River. Every breath feels pure and untouched early in the morning when you sit sipping on your coffee at the river front villa. The place is clean, well furnished and well maintained. Equipped with power back up, television and AC. The play area is equipped with games like table tennis and Carom board. Bourne fire and music is arranged by the owners every evening. Housekeeping staff do an excellent job. They are well trained in their job. However, they will need to work on upgrading their room service pattern. Only beverages and snacks are served in the room and is not applicable for the meals. This is because breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served at the dinning hall of the resort. Normally there is buffet spread of delicious home cooked food for a stipulated time period. They serve both veg and non-veg food. Along with comfortable stay there are a lot of tourist destinations that you can visit in and around this place since it is centrally located. Overall, good and relaxed experience.

"It was with great trepidation that I made my way through the driveway of the resort. "

7.0/7
Posted 1 Mar, 2013

It was with great trepidation that I made my way through the driveway of the resort. Having seen some of the negative reviews of the resort on the travel website,I was expecting the worst, but to my surprise it was nowhere near what they had described about the place. The resort with its asphalted driveway was superbly maintained with beautiful lawns, fabulous landscaping and flowery gardens. The villas and guesthouses including the main house was built in traditional Malnad style architecture with Mangalore tiled roofs. The resort is situated by the banks of river Tunga 3 km from Theerthalli town, about 60 km from Shimoga. It was Google maps that urged me to check this place. On the map the whole surrounding along with the meandering river looked lush and verdant. The ground reality was no different from the map. The entire place was a carpet of greenery. Areca plantations adorned the countryside and the sound of gushing water in the rive was music to ones ears. The resorts rooms were squeaky clean. The loos exceptionally maintained with pretty good sanitary fittings. The food was good home cooked Malnad fare. The chicken and lamb curry was awesome. The owners are no-nonsense stickler for cleanliness folks and do not tolerate littering and abusing the facilities which may be a negative for some guests but certainly a plus for me. How else can one enjoy a place in such beautiful settings, if it is misused & shabbily maintained? It was quite annoying to see guests and their cab drivers throwing tetra packs and water bottles all over the place. Fortunately they were promptly picked up by the ever vigilant staff. Overall a serene, tranquil place and a great location to unwind. Highly recommended for the discerning, responsible traveller. A great and memorable experience it was indeed! Litterbugs and noise polluters keep out. You are better off in the city.
