The resort is arranged in the towns outside Bangalore. It is about a 3-4 hour drive from Bangalore. The feeling is tranquil and quiet. A weekend here is a break from the day by day commotion of city life. You would wake up to the crowing of a chicken :) . . The room was spotless and agreeable. The sustenance is delightful particularly the bhaturas. Georgia & Leo are warm and inviting. You would adore their canines Expression of alert is that, The room we stayed had an added fascination in our child, a loft! Just for himself! He was the person who appreciated the spot to the handle, with such a great amount to keep him involved. I didn't get cell system scope all through my remain. I am not certain whether this was a Vodafone particular issue or different systems have a poor scope too. Keep the entryways shut to abstain from getting bugs in your room.
We went to GSV for a nearby outing and found the place really beautiful. Although the last stretch to the place was a bit adventurous but, once you are there you seem to be in the arms of nature. The ambience was awesome, food was great and the experience of bone fire was also memorable. Advance bookings on a weekend is recommended.
I stayed at this hotel twice, last year and was welcomed whole heatedly. Most of the staff members know me as I had stayed there earlier and were polite and courteous while addressing me. The food was very tasty. We were given good treatment for our stay of 3 days and 2 nights.
An ideal weekend Getaway for a day or two. This place is just few hours drive from Bangalore. This place is much enjoyed by kids with all pet animals (Rabbits, Dogs, Ducks etc). The rooms are average but the kids can have lot of fun (Fishing, cycling, Dam, Boating / coracle ride etc). The owner of the property are very friendly and the food was good and wallpapered. A best place for kids for a day stay.
It is a good home stay away from city noise. The rooms are basic and clean. It is a small place and can look crowded if all the rooms are full. We were lucky to have only a few fellow travellers. It is wise to go the resort in your own vehicle. We spent the day we reached in the resort. The night we went for a safari overcharged and was not worth. Nature walk the next morning. Just like a walk in the rural mountainous area. It was refreshing and was enjoyed by the kids. Not very tiring too. Visit to Shivasamudram falls from there was good. One can plan a picnic out of it. The food is good in the resort cooked as per your requirement. Ideal for when you travel with friends or relatives as the place is small and there is nothing much to do. A very small tank like pool is there. Please take the route map for reaching the resort. A little difficult route. Might seem a little overcharged and is suitable for people who want to make a leisure visit to a country home stay.
Many of my friends have warned me not to trust online reviews. They may be fake. However I always believe the online reviews and select new places. I had more successes than failure in experimenting with new places based on reviews. But this one was a big disappointment We were 4 of us - Husband, me and my parents. Took a day Package with Sunshine costing around 1k per person. We reached the resort at 2 PM after visiting the falls and directly had lunch. The idea to take the break was to relax my parents so that the travel does not get too hectic for them. I categorically mentioned the objective before booking. Let me get directly to the major disappointments:. 1) Charging 1k for day trip they did not have even a proper place to rest or even stretch your legs, my parent were sitting in a sofa from 3 PM - 5 PM. All because they were excited to go for Fun fishing which they mentioned will be interesting. My mom kept asking them to take us for the fishing in the meantime so that we can leave early. But they wanted to take us in a group. Hence we waited till 5 PM sitting in a sofa. 2) "Fun Fishing" was anything but funny! - Finally 5 PM and we were joined by another old lady and a mid age lady with her toddler and nanny. A guide from the resort joined us and we started walking. The walk was supposed to be for around 2Km. We kept walking in middle of nowhere till 5:40 PM. The old lady gave up and the toddler started puking. The guide did not even look back, he kept walking straight much ahead of us. He did not understand Hindi or English and just kept saying 5 minutes more. My husband followed him ahead and came back running saying it's just a stagnant drain with lots of bushes around. One cannot even get down. We started almost running back, poor my mom and the others had to really push themselves as it was getting dark and cloudy and not a single soul around neither any street light. If anything would have happened to us, no one would have even got to know about it as there was no Mobile coverage as well. I am speechless. How can the resort owners not warn people and tell them what can be expected? I definitely have never come across such unmindful act in any place ever. We finally reached back at 6:30 PM, all of us highly disappointed. They did not care much when we shared out feedback. Just laughed it away which irritated us even more. It was a very dangerous thing to do with your customers in such remote village area 3) Emergency Support: We were upset and about to leave when my husband realized the car keys got locked inside the car. First time we had this situation, we thought we can open the car with a scale but could not. We went to the owners and asked them for help. Their son just came once, but did not help us much with any mechanic number or anything. It started raining and we were trying to open it with help of another car's driver and calling up Just dial for mechanic. No one was even able to relate where we were. The place is in middle of nowhere and we dint know what to do next? Even the house keys are inside along with the car keys, so even taking a cab and leaving the place was not an option. We got drenched in rain and trying to open with help of our Mobile light. The least they could do is send an umbrella or a torch to help us in dark. We felt so abandoned. With our parents, we felt more hurt as they dint have a clue what was happening. They JUST DIDN'T CARE. We are regulars in travelling to adventurous places, trying camps across south but what keeps our experimentation spirit on are the people we connect to and the trust we have that they know how to take care in case of any emergency like someone falling sick or car breaking down. They themselves told us at the end that last month someone faced the similar situation. Then how can one be so unprepared! It's a big lesson and I think this is how unwanted cases happen in such situations. Anyone can be the victim. It was lesson for us too. Not having good phone coverage made us feel even more handicapped They definitely are understaffed, also they are over charging for the place they run.
a really lovely place.Beautiful location.Lovely climate and serene ambiance.Loved the location.The hotel was nice and service was good.loved it in every way.Would want to visit there again
Overall it was a good experience. The location of the resort is good and convenient. It is worth a 2 day 1 night stay. The distance from bangalore makes it a very convenient choice for a weekend getaway. The resort is clean with conveniences like a refridgerator and 24 hr hot water. The barachukki falls was excellent. The coracle ride was worth the Rs.100/- we paid he took us really close to the falls..so getting wet was inevitable.
Georgia Sunshine Village was that often much needed stress busting homestay. The folks are kind, the place clean and completely natural! Look forward to a nice drive most of the way and then sunny yet pleasant weather. Also, the open bathroom is wild!
The overall experience was good. It is a nice getaway for city folks who just want to relax and do nothing. The place is surrounded by greenery and no habitation of any sort. So you can be at peace with yourself. There are only 6 cottages so not many people around you. Also, the place has all possible things to make you comfortable. Hundres of magazines, some indoor games and lots of places to rest. Rooms are very spacious and airy.
Georgia Sunshine, located some 100 km away from Bangalore is a nice weekend getaway. The resort is run by this couple, Lennard and Georgia. Does not have too much of a view but is in the midst of wilderness and one would love the calmness and serenity of the place. Of course you could drive to Gaganachukki falls about 10 km from the resort and try and trek down to the base of the water falls (This not entirely safe though as the rocks are pretty slippery). The food was wonderful and they just let you be and do your own thing - hang out in the courtyard or take a dip in their pool. There's not too much to do around here but if you just want to get away from work and all for a couple days and relax, this is the place to head to.
Nice place to relax. For those who can't "do nothing", the area around is also quite nice for trekking and there are couple of nice waterfalls.
