Excellent stay. The hosts Gautam and Manu were excellent people and took care of us very well. The food was delicious - breakfast, lunch, dinner and the evening snacks. The homestay had a very serene atmosphere overlooking the hills. It was a very relaxing stay for us. Gautam was very friendly and he took us to the nearby coffee plantation and showed us around. We thoroughly enjoyed delicious Malnad meals and they were both kind and loving people. Will definitely return!
If you are planning to visit Sakleshpur and looking for the stay, its just no-brainer task. Hema Koota is one the finest place to stay with scrumptious spread of lip-smacking food. With a small kid, we were initially skeptical about finding a safe place to stay during the pandemic phase. However, after reading some great reviews, we had concluded to stay here. As you approach the home-stay, the first thing you notice is a traditional ancestral house facing the mountains on the other side. On the adjacent plot are the cozy room’s available for stay. A beautiful lawn at the centre, fenced by a well maintained garden, the rustic looking facade, make you fall in love with the place. More than the aesthetics, the hospitality, food quality and cleanliness we experienced here are incredible, all praises to Gautham uncle and his wife who are the owners. They are very passionate and take care of guest whole-heartedly. You feel more like you are at a close relative’s house. We were invited to their home for all the meals. Apart from that, they served coffee and evening snacks. Another bonus we had was the location. If you are travelling from Bangalore, the shortest route the map shows, is a road free of potholes. 100% smooth drive until the last mile. However, if you choose to navigate to Sakleshpur town via NH75, after a place called Channarayanapattana, the roads are not so great. Most of the view points are in the vicinity.…
The perfect destination for a getaway with friends or family. A host is a helpful person who gave us just wanted we needed. We took the time to him a few hills and come back to this relaxed homestay. The food was authentic and delicious. What I loved more was the amazing proximity to hiking spots and being in the backyard to nature. Would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a simple and budget friendly outing.
Hema Koota is a homestay located at Athihally village, Sakleshpura. Owned by Mr. Gautam & family, the guest rooms are adjacent to their magnificent home. Home stay has five rooms with all basic amenities. The family takes good care of their guests. Food is fingerlicking good. Every meal is a variety with options for both veg & non veg. Mr. Gautam & family make guests comfortable and take good care. They also help you chart your day and accompany where necessary. Overall had a great time spent at Hema koota.
Amazing and perfect homestay for the best price. Homestay in the midst of nature and greenery is all you need for a peaceful vacation. Do visit. A very welcoming family and food will make you want more❤️
