We went to this place for 15th August weekend and had an average experience. The first most annoying thing was though they say Chikamagalur, this place was 40 km drive from Chikamagalur. It was actually in Muthodi forest area . . View from here was really good. Ideal for those who don't want to move an inch during their vacation, just sit and do nothing. The top view rooms were good. Swimming pool was a disappointment, it didn't have any water. When we requested they filled it with dirty water. It basically looked like a pond. Food was pretty much average. They will feed you almost the same thing in all the meals. The manager Sathya and others are pretty warm in interaction. They will cook extra snacks in case you need while boozing as sides. Don't have high expectations from the food. And, in case you plan to drink, make sure you carry your own liquor, they don't have much stock . There was almost nothing to do around here, except for a small trip which they arrange for you. But you could give that a skip as people who went were hungry till they came back in the evening . And yes, after you reach Muthodi, you need to park your car in a parking place they have and go with them in jeeps to the resort or a home stay I should say. That was another 10 km. So if you want to go to some other place, you need to ask them to arrange the jeep to take you to the parking place. While checking out, we waited for one and half hour for the jeep to come and when it came, it wasn't the jeep but a bolero pick-up. Will I go back again? No. Will I recommend others? If you don't find any other resort then yes, else please avoid. Search for other resorts, I am sure there would be better options.
It was a very good hotel and it is located in between a forest better than a cottage. The ambience of this resort was good. The staff were friendly and courteous. The food provided to me was good and had vast varieties to choose from. The room was neat and clean spacious with all basic amenities I had a very good view from the room. There were very good indoor games like carom, badminton etc. They had organized sightseeing trips that to twice a day. Check-in and check-out process was on time. The hotel was double the worth for the amount I had spent. I would suggest this hotel to construct another five rooms. I would recommend this resort to hotel to other travellers. I had an adventurous trip at this hotel.
It was a good experience with good service. It is a guesthouse. There was little difficulty finding the location and they had to escort us. The room was okay and clean and well maintained. They also had swimming pool. The amenities were functioning properly. I had food in the hotel and the quality was good. They provided everything that we ordered. It was a little costly but it was okay and I would like to recommend this to others. I went there with my family and friends and it was a relaxation trip.
Good place with basic facilities nothing fancy since it is part of a coffee estate. Trekking is not feasible if it is raining, the coffee plant tour very ordinary nothing great. The best part was the night BBQ organized for a very minimal cost of 200 to 300 rs. The manager and his wife were very pleasant and food was simply amazing. Delicious home cooked food and you could never get tiered of it.
the drive was truly awesome, especially driving a SUV on those roads. just the right kind of place to relax with nothing to do the whole day long. thats my kind of holiday.
the resort is more like a homestay. it is located in absolute wilderness, very quite and relaxing. the service is good, it can improve though. the owner is a very friendly and helpful lady.
We spent 2 nights at Tex Woods and the experience was quite a mixed one. The good points: The resort is nicely located in a plantation and the hosts were very nice and accomodating especially since we had a 10 month old baby with us. Food was good, but I must mention that it was very spicy, so if you can\'t take too much spice, please inform the hosts in advance. The walks around the resort were invigorating and the surroundings were beautiful. The bad points: One of the standard rooms is located away from the rest of the house, beside the pool and has problems....mosquitoes because of gaps in the roof, no hot water (they had a gate-valve issue is what we were told). So please make sure you dont get this room while booking. The electricity goes quite often and they do have a generator, but it comes on automatically only for the common areas and a few rooms. For other rooms, you have to repeatedly go request the manager and he will switch some switch that turns on the electricity for other rooms as well. In the middle of a bath, it would be a little difficult to do that ;). The swimming pool is a real let down. When we were there, the bottom of the pool was covered in moss, the water was dirty, not at all inviting!! Also, the picture on the website is not what the pool looks like. The bathrooms themselves were clean, but could have been much cleaner, looked like the sinks and the tiles in the bathroom hadnt had a good scrub in quite a few days. The resort is understaffed and since the help is busy with breakfast and lunch, your rooms will prob be cleaned only late in the evening, that too only beds made, and room swept, the bathrooms are not touched. Fresh towels and soap are not provided unless explicitly asked for. The 4km ride from Muthodi to Tex Woods is a real roller-coaster, you get thrown up and down quite a bit even in a comfortable vehicle like a Scorpio (which the hosts pick you up in). In case you have any older people or people who cant handle a lot of jerks, be fore-warned.
It was really a great place to take a break from your busy lives. We just loved the food and the hospitality shown by the resort care takers. Thanks Tex Wood resorts for making our vacation memorable
I was introduced by HolidayIQ to Padaki Tours & Travels, Bangalore, who organized a package stay for a group of executives of Keltech Energies Ltd, Bangalore in Tex Woods, Sheegekan Estate, Chikmagalur. The Keltech group had a happy & peaceful stay at Tex Woods. The place is good and extremely peaceful where one may enjoy forgetting the tension filled world of today. Also, I think this is the one place where still you may see a perfect black sky with glittering stars & planets as there is no light pollution too. I wish to make a special mention about Mr. Satya Veera & Mrs. Mamata. It is our group\'s singular opinion that the couple is fantastic as hosts with their absolute positive attitude and their capacity for the hard work in Tex Woods. Satya & Mamata is probably the most decent couple, we ever met because of whom we could not notice any defects in Tex Woods even if they were there. It is the opinion of the group that this was the most peaceful stay ever we had in the past 25 years, during which I had been locating resorts and conducting our company meetings in India & abroad. We profusely thank Tex Woods, Padaki Travels and this extraordinary couple.
The Destination - rugged journey to location but once you get there, place is awesome The Location - as a wildlife afficionado right bang in the middle of tiger country! The Appearance - it is a large house, so may not have the standard look and feel of a resort nor a hotel. Homestay is more appropriate a name for this. Bookings & front office - honestly someone else did the bookings, but we knew it was smooth and easy (email and phone). The Service - very personal and simple, homely in fact The Room - nice and simple, clean and hygienic, but not enough plug points, e.g. for mosquito repellant machines Food & Drink - burp! excellent home food experience Activities - nothing really, but you could take a vehicle and get into the WLS..
