I spent three days in this resort totally in my 'vacation mode'. The rooms, the staff, the food all were amazing. Expensive, yes, but it was worth it. A total family friendly place. Would love to visit again.

I visited this resort in Chickmagalur in the last week of March. The check in was hassle free and very welcoming. We loved the room and of course the pool. As it was a festival that day we had to order Ala carte but again it was absolutely tasty. I would like to mention Mr Mohan at the odyssey restaurant....

Checkin was simple and smooth and we were taken to room soon after being greeted with jasmine flowers. Resort was silent calm and hardly any noise around. Probably due to just 29 rooms and that too villas, it remain calm and peaceful. We booked for villa with pool. I believe there are just few without pool, which have jacuzzi instead....

The Hotel is awesome as one enters this property, however the moment you check into the rooms the experience changes due to lack of maintenance. The beautiful architecture of the place was impressive with a private pool - not cleaned - the room was stinking with odour of a dead animal. The Hotel Management was not willing to change rooms...

Vast expanse of a property in the midst of coffee/pepper plantations. Ideal for a break away from the city. It works well with an all meals package. The property is excellent with spacious villa rooms and a private pool for each villa. The only negative point is the price.....way too expensive!

Wanted to visit this resort for a long time and finally ticked it off my bucket list. The overall atmosphere is really serene. We were welcomed with friendly smiles and garlands. The rooms are huge and the private pool was a huge plus point, along with a bed near the pool to relax. There are plantation walks and activities like...
