Woodlands homestay is an amazing place. Very tranquil retreat,calm and quiet. Hussein makes the best food in town. Would recommend it to anyone seeking self, peace and quiet. Full marks to the hosts
We, 3 couples had a wonderful stay for 3 nights. Very much enjoyed the ambience and food. Highly recommend it.
We, a group of 7 riders from Bengaluru booked this homestay after many days of search in the travel websites looking for best places to stay in coorg. Our time spent in searching did not go waste as the place was more than our expectation. Warm hospitality surrounded by scenic beauty we had a relaxing stay for two nights. We had plans to go around surrounding places but we just dropped the idea and preferred to stay back and enjoy the time. The caretaker cum cook Hussain bhai was very helpful and supportive and made us feel like we are at home away from home. A special mention to the owner of the property Mr. Vishal who ensured we get the best out of our stay and providing a complimentary meal when we were feeling too lazy to go out for lunch. I would definitely recommend the place for families and for groups who want to just relax and enjoy the homestay experience nestled in between coffee estates. the bungalow is also neatly maintained with ample space for upto 8 people. I'm sure this is a place to checkout for. Thank you Vishal & Hussain for providing a comfortable stay.
We drove to woodland bungalow from Bangalore last weekend. This place is away from typical ‘coorg tourist’ sites which is a good thing. Located on the fringes of Nagerhole National park and very close to Karnataka~kerala border, Woodland bungalow is ideally located in the middle of lush green coffee plantation far away from city hustle and bustle.. and even from mobile coverage (you would get only BSNL signals). Perfect place to unwind, relax and do nothing.
Located around 240Kms from Bangalore we reached woodland bungalow via Mysore->Hunsur-> Nagarhole Natational Park. Vishal, our gracious host was more accurate than Google maps in providing exact directions and landmarks. He picked us up and escorted last few Kms towards the Bungalow. The Road from Bangalore to Bungalow is in good condition in general. You would enjoy off-roading among coffee estates for last 3~4 kms before the destination, but it’s very much drivable even with a hatchback.
This colonial styled bungalow is recently renovated and is maintained in perfect condition. There is a sit out in the front porch ideally suitable for your morning tea, a living room, three large bedrooms with XXL size bathroom and a large dining which could accommodate 8 people. There is a large open area and garden in front, one can play various games.
Woodland bungalow comes with an excellent cook and a helper. You would be pampered with local delicacies for breakfast and dinners. The staff is like good ball boys during tennis games, you won’t feel their presence, yet, they are always there to help you whenever you need them.
One can have tranquil walks / hikes in the coffee estate, read a book, pitch a tent and play with children, or drive around and see lush green nature of the of this area there are plentiful options. There are river rafting options n Monsoon.
Giving five stars to this place would be under rating, there should be some higher option for exceptional places.
We stayed in home stay which is managed by Vishal. It was the best experience staying there. The location is very beautiful and close to nature. This place is very well maintained, the cook is a great person and prepares delicious food all the time. Vishal who manages the home stay is an amazing person who not only helps getting there and setting in but also helps you in planning your activities and guides you for the place of interest in Coorg.
I would highly recommend this place and I would definitely want to come back to this place again.
Thank you Vishal for being a nice host.
