We stayed for two nights at Bamboo Banks as part of a two week trip in South India. Location: we were in the area to visit Bandipur National Park, having heard that it was well worth the visit. The hotel itself is closer to Mudumalai park but was only a 45 min jeep ride away from Bandipur (organised by hotel)....

Being a part of the fast pace environment and chaos of city life, we wanted to escape to place where nature at its best which is tranquil to the heart and serendipity to mind. Eventually we found bamboo banks which treats you with generous hospitality and provides you a great experience. Highly recommend.

We were 15 of us (family and friends) who spent New Year 2017 at Bamboo Banks. A warm, homely resort, perfect for families with lots to do for all age groups. Well thought out, functional, enormous rooms with everything you could ask for. Excellent food - great selection of very tasty, yet not too rich veg and non-veg options. A...

Lovely, peaceful place in the midst of a private forest. If one is looking for peace and tranquility, this is the place. Outside the cottage, we could see deer grazing, monkeys swinging in the trees. Ducks were enjoying themselves in the pond while Ostrich and turkeys moved freely in their area. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Room service was...
