Nestled away in the quiet vidyanagar township, far from the hustling bustling hampi township, this is definitely worth a visit. Great hospitality, friendly staff & ample activities to pass leisure time makes it an ideal place to spend a relaxing holiday.
This is a top hotel with great facilities and staff but it is an hour outside Hampi. The rooms are really good and the restaurants are excellent. The infinity pool is also stunning. A real treat for us to spend a night here.
We stayed here for 2 nights while we visited Hampi.
First things first, this place is ~45 mins from Hampi. If you dont have own transport, visiting Hampi will be very expensive affair.
Coming to the resort, it is an excellent hotel with very courteous staff. Every request is attended to immediately.
The rooms are very clean and is accessible to the main reception very easily.
Stay has a complimentary breakfast which is very good. There is a good spread of South Indian and Continental breakfast.
We had the buffet lunch on one of the days and found it to be very ordinary. For the cost, it was very dull. None of the items were hot and most of the salads had got over by 2pm.
For the rest of the duration of our stay, we had our food outside.
If you are fitness freak, the campus is an excellent place to take early morning jog/walk. It is full of greenery and has many up-down roads which are treat to eyes in the morning time.
The hotel offers cycles which can be used to take round of the campus.
P.S: Suggest to take 3rd or 4th floor rooms as they have good view of the campus. The 1st and 2nd floor rooms overlook the walking aisle and might not offer complete privacy.
We drove down from Bengaluru as a family of 4, including a toddler. After a tiring journey, we reached the Jindal township in Bellary with a bit of difficulty in locating the property.
However, once we reached the property, the staff greeted us warmly, checked us in pretty quickly and helped settle us down. The hotel is located inside the Jindal township, which is a lovely green campus. For about 45 minutes away from Hampi, it is well worth staying here.
They have bicycles available, which we made full use of to wander about in the Jindal campus. There is a Kaladham museum, hardly 10 min stroll away, which is a must visit. It is a private museum maintained very well and also has an audio-visual show. We highly recommend it before visiting the Hampi ruins - gives a good overview and background of Hampi.
We took the World Heritage package at Hyatt, which included breakfast and buffet dinner. The breakfast was excellent with a huge variety of everything from the south Indian classics to croissants, pancakes and fresh fruit etc. on offer. And they happily accommodated small modification requests for our baby. The dinner was a bit ho-hum, especially after eating there 3 nights in a row - though we did like the chilly babycorn. Oh and the bar is quite decent too. My only minor grouse is that they didn't have any local specialties like jolada rotti, badnekai, gurellu chutney etc. I wish they added a local flavour too instead of being so generic. Anyway, I must specially add that the staff was very cheerful and motivated and took a lot of care of the guests.
The rooms are modern, bright, airy and spacious. We loved the well design bathrooms. The pool and gym too are adequate.
We covered Hampi ruins on one day and Badami, Banashankari, Aihole, Pattadakkal on the next. Please keep in mind that to for both these days you will need to start early and you will reach hotel late in the evening, so it works best to have breakfast and dinner at the hotel.
Wonderfully located hotel, very friendly staff, the rooms are super tidy, good and diverse Indian food, nice gym and pool. Found always good sleep after long working days. my room was very silent and always kept in perfect condition
