A really good place to spend time with your family, or a group of friends. The property is situated deep in the coffee plantation which gives it a different feel. It's a cool place to unwind and relax. Forget your phonebfor sometime as network is largely unavailable. I really loved the food that was served, and the ambience the place provided. Bonfire at night added to the charm. I can't forget the night sky witnessed from this quaint place
My colleagues and me were looking for a homestay that could accommodate a large group(13). There werent too many options, one of them was Suraksha. We booked it based on reviews here and elsewhere.
While the price quoted was less, it quickly went up when the meal plan was included. While our expectations were tempered, the accommodation was still modest. Rooms were cramped with beds, to increase occupancy.
Of the 13, 11 turned out. There are 4 rooms and 3 bathrooms. The number of bathrooms was inadequate during mornings.
While I found the food OK, most of my colleagues didnt like it. We were kept waiting for chapattis and rottis.
The access to the facility is bad, and the last leg requires owner to pick up in his jeep. Phones might not work, it is advisable to coordinate for the pickup.
While the owners were helpful and accommodative. The place didnt meet our expectations., it falls short of other homestays we have visited in the Chikamagalur region.
Could never recall a beautiful place than this. Place worthy of calling heaven on earth. Hospitality of the people was excellent.. more than comfortable rooms and facilities. Money and time well spent.
Amazing place to enjoy a break from work routine... Homely and Delicious food.. Surrounded by coffee plants.. Awesome host.. I really enjoyed the stay.. Couple of tourist spots nearby homestay which are must visit spots..
This is one of the best accommodations we had ! ever !
The location is simply ecstatic surrounded by abundant nature.
Yes its away from all other places in chikamagalur - But the nearby Mallandur shooting spot, Kavi kall mutt are awesome places to match the rest.
Absolute privacy guaranteed. For groups in large numbers 15-20 this is a great place to stay. The glass house rooms with their views are terrific.
we made quite some noise but the hosts are kind and humble enough to spare us !
we enjoyed the Malanad food - Biriyani, Ghee rice everything is good, chicken is juicy and the sweet Holige with ghee is too good !
Tatte idly is kind of hard ( we tamils love soft idlys ;) ) - but kannadiga friend told me its the way they cook.
Dont think much - just go for it !
A one of kind adventure is guaranteed.
Thank you very much Keerthana - Shivanna and the cook for the experience.
As the host says "a beautiful place to get lost" :)
