Around Bangalore if you pla. A weekend day outing that's adventurous, fun with a good rain dance, this is the joint. The zip line, rock wall climbing, zorbong and the beat is the paintball war game.
The concept of water falls, caves and a large central rain dance point is the attraction.
Located on Kanakapura Road, don't miss it.
I got this Resort as a Gift package from my Employer and chose this, so they can ensure a pleasurable experience for its employees. But to be honest this is one of the worst experiences that you can get. Listing down few. My package was from 9:00 till 5:30PM inclusive of Breakfast and Lunch. We reached there by 10:00 and ran out by 12:30.
1. Road to this place is not good. And no one informed us from Resort that Road construction works are going on and road blocks were to be accounted for while travel.
2. The resort doesnt restrict number of people per day. So there were more than 1000 members. This means the place is crowded like hell. Cricket grounds were occupied by 10-20 teams, zip lines crossing across these teams, zorbing balls passing across crowds..wow..
3. YOu have to pay for each of these activity
a. Cycling - 50 Rs per cycle and half of them were not in ridable condition and where would you ride these , between ppl playing cricket, badmnton and others ..huhh
b. Horse riding - 100rs - This is just for 20meters walk on the horse
c. Zorbing - 200rs for adults, 100 for Kids,
d. Zip Line - 100 for Kids.
etc etc etc etc
3. Two to three groups of people were Drinking and Smoking on the Lawns. No one bothered about it. How would you expect families to walk around among these groups?
4. For each and every process , you have stand in queue with people who dont understand what a queue is. Queue for Payment, Queue for Coupon, Queue for Breakfast, Queue for each activity...huhh
5. We could see groups of people still being allowed at 12;30PM. And most of them were drunk. Literally we could smell alcohol as each group passed by.
6. This resort also has Rain dance , imagine fate of girls among these groups. Of course this is a risky place for girls.
So after seeing all this and experiencing some hours of horrible conditions, we came out of this place.
Went for a day outing with office colleagues. The place is famous for the cave like feeling and the waterfall inside. It's an average place, the food is pretty okay and the cricket ground is quite big. The pool needed some cleaning.
Reaching Guhantara was not an issue for us as the route was familiar and there were signboards all along. There was no welcome drink on arrival. We had taken a day's package. Our purpose of going to this place was just to chill and relax. Within minutes we realised that this place is not for us :) Guhantara is an outdoor activity centred resort. There are a number of outdoor activity options there viz. Cricket, Volleyball, Archery, Badminton, Cycling and stuff.. The fish spa was not that attractive. The lockers are placed in the middle of nowhere; There was no restrooms or changing rooms near to lockers as one would expect. There are no proper signboards inside the resort. One should wander through the everlasting tunnel with exits leading to various places. The food (vegetarian) was very much below expectations. Given that we were the last to eat the taste was not good altogether. We spent much time in a pool which was hidden inside the cottage areas as the Main pool was not as clean as we expected it to be.
Overall: Guhantara is a place to go only for Outdoor activities with not so good vegetarian food. The waterfall (when turned on) near the amphitheatre was good.
Value for money: 6/10 as most outdoor activities are paid in the day out package.
We visited this place very recently for celebrating my son's birthday. It was a disappointment. This place does not have enough signboards to take you there. With google maps, we went for a ride though a better road was existing. When you arrive nobody guides you. It is all by your own. There is no one to familiarize the place and no sign boards inside the property as well. They have a very poor scheme of paying for each ride at the counter. You find a ride or activity good to do, you need to walk up to the entrance to buy coupons. Each paid ride is like this. I took a coupon for Quadbike for Rs.200 only to realize that they had an extremely old quadbike, which had no safety measure to protect the riders legs, extremely tight handle bars and very small lap. It was totally disappointing. Then we purchased a coupon for archery and asked at the counter where the target is. They said backside. That's it. We were on our own to find the place without any sign board. If you are in a big group, they have lot of open space with lawn, where you can hang out. Two group of people were playing cricket. But why spend money and effort to go there if I can play cricket near my home. Lunch was served in an amphitheatre. The food was the worst I had had. The amphitheatre, inside the dark place, cemented floor, with so many people sitting around you, lot of litter around gave me a feel of pilgrimage than a resort. My 8 year old son, said it feels disgusting to eat here. It looks like prison. The amphitheatre was too noisy, echoes all sound, does not give any to talk to the person next to you. In short, nobody cares about you once you enter the place. They are concerned of collecting money properly at each place. Every place has board saying 'Smoking and drinking prohibited'. There were at least 5 occurrence where people were smoking in open areas. Nobody cares.Very poor worth for the money. Not a recommended place.
