This place is just great to stay, it's bit difficult to reach the place but once you reach it's ultimate location. The way it's set up and the services are too good. We had taken brick cottage, it was good. I think bamboo cottages would have been more good.
I had been to guest house on 23nd and I wanted to stay two nights but after being there I extended another two nights amazing place and people they guide you excellent. About food it was good but was served late. One thing prefer room no 19-23 with excellent view of paddy and mountain view, and my wife liked it very much.
We travelled with friends to Hampi to enjoy a visit to the hills and ruins of Hampi a world heritage site. We had a harrowing experience from the outset, as the resort management could not first guide us to the resort well and wasted at least couple of hours with directions while we were hardly 3-4 kms away from the spot. Communication is a huge concern and service is pathetic. No hot water in the morning or evenings, rude workforce, demanding front office/owners. They do not have any reservation or precooking facility online, and hence more discomfort as they give away good rooms if you are late to their check-in time of 10 AM. While the saving grace is the tasty food and the restaurant is comfy, but again service takes almost an hour to arrive I would definitely avoid staying in this cottages instead look for better option nearby.
Hampi stay was the most memorable part of our trip, thanks to the amazing Sunny Guest House for their warm hospitality . . We stayed here for 2 days. Mr. Naren, the manager of this guest house is a nice, friendly man. He personally attends to your needs. From a cup of morning tea to a towel, he is there to provide you everything. The rooms provide you excellent view of the rocks and the lush green fields. You can trek to the nearby hillocks which is stone's throw from this place Situated in Virupapur Reserve Forest, this place is situated on the banks of Tungabhadra river. The rooms are spacious, frugally organized but clean. Bathrooms are good but water in the taps run slow. Though they provide mosquito net, mosquitoes menace could be one of the concerns but is advisable to carry mosquito repellent and mats too. Since we went in off-season the room rent were quite low Friendly staff, free and fresh environment would make you want to come back to this place for good.
Hampi was the destination we chose for a getaway trip. We were travelling from Hyderabad, and we chose to travel by bus for two reasons- 1) economical 2) convenience. The bus dropped us off at Hospet at 3:30 am ( No direct bus to Hampi), which is about half an hour away from Hampi. We hired an auto to take us to Hampi, since it was at an odd hour, the auto charged us Rs. 300. The auto driver, Baasha, was extremely nice and helpful. He helped us find an accommodation immediately since the ferry to take us to Sunny Guest House only starts at 7am. We rested till sunrise at Garden Paradise Guest house. We checked out of Garden Paradise and walked to a small breakfast stall by the Tungabadra River. We sat under the tree and were served Hot dosas and puris. We enjoyed the view of kids swimming in the river and an elephant taken for a bath by his master. We had made reservations at Sunny guest house in advance. Even though, reservation is not actually needed during off seasons. The guest house was luckily one of the first guest houses, as soon as you get off the ferry and walk up hill. Therefore, it was very convenient for us. We stayed in one of the huts facing the paddy fields and boulders. The view was pleasant , even though the fields are pretty dry during this time of the year. But the coconut trees and garden in the guest house make up for it. The room we stayed in was quite spacious. We payed Rs.500/ night. Our bed was a queen sized bed with a mosquito net. The room was well maintained. The staff cleaned the room and sanitized the room while we were filling out our information at the reception. The staff was very friendly, they were willing to go out of the way to help us. The only problem people might have are the red ants, they are impossible to get rid of. But we kinda got used to their bites. Its all a part parcel of living in Hampi. We also had Mr. frog take a hop inside our room one morning but that did not really bother us either. All harmless. Wifi was not available at the guest house while we were staying, since it was off season. But we found a really nice cafe called Evergreen cafe close by, a stone throw away from the guest house. They had free wi-fi and delicious food. They had all kinds of cuisines, like, Italian, Lebanese, Spanish, Limited Indian etc. The only kind of alcohol they serve is Beer. At night, you will enjoy the music played by a local music shop owner, called Gaali. He brings his interesting music instruments and entertain you with his music skills. He will also allow you to try them if you like. The weather in Hampi was extremely hot during day time. But gets pleasant by 4 pm. It rained every evening during our stay. When the rain stopped, we rented a bike and went for a bike ride to Kamplapur Lake. The weather made the bike ride beautiful and the view of the lake was magnificent. You can go rock climbing on the nearby boulders. You will capture the most beautiful pictures in your camera. We also climbed the Matunga Hill/sunset point for the catch the sunset. Though it was too cloudy that day, we enjoyed the view from a high point. You will have climb over 500 steps to get to the top. We also visited the Queen's bath, Vitala Temple, Elephant caves and other historical places. But our purpose of the trip was to just chill and relax, so we did not see a lot of historical monuments. The best part is almost every locality speaks fluent English. So you will have no problem communicating with people there. Unfortunately, everyone one in the town is dependent on BSNL for the internet. And it is a common problem for you to be deprived of wi-fi for days together. Luckily we discovered Shanti Guest house, who were the only ones using D-link. So, if you are ever in a situation where you're in need of free wi-fi. Then run to Shanthi Guest house.
Sunny Guest house had the advantage of a very nice location, located at the edge of a huge paddy field, with the rocky Hampi boulders visible from your bamboo cottage and a thick grove of coconut trees. We were practically the only Indian people there as most of the other lodgers were Israelis and other foreigners.
If you are looking to take a break from your busy work schedule, if you want to hit the refresh button, then Hampi is the place to be in. Fine weather, scenic landscape, architectural magnificence and exquisite international cuisines, all these factors combined together made my trip to Hampi and my stay at Sunny guest house more than fulfilling. But make sure you spend atleast 3 days in Hampi.
