Trekking and water adventure...what else can be so tempting especially for adventurists like me. This things give me my Kick. Wonderful place and everything is just up-to-the-mark. I'm certainly exploring more of South India now and to get the best of South I prefer reading thrillophilia reviews .
"We had taken 7PM-11AM package for 6 people over Diwali holiday. It was well organised and hosted by them. It is located around 75km from Bangalore and drive was also mesmerizing during our time. So, based on overall experience below are my rating:\nHosting: 4/5\nNight Event (Bonfire): 4/5\nTrekking: 5/5( Must attend)\nOutside Activities :5/5( Rapplin, Mud games, kayaking etc).\nFood: 4.5/5\nValue for Money: 5/5\n\nNote: Only thing I didn't like was sleeping in tent. It should have been flat and sponge but rather it was sloppy and uneven. Also, if you close the zip of tent it feels like gas chamber. \n\nOther than this its a must tryout over the weekend...????"
"it's superb experience. .... staff's are amazing. .... superbly maintained. ... the problem is only toilet rooms ..... its clean but less toilets ...... good food ...... natural swimming pool is ultimate. .... must visit place .....for couples this would be the best resort..."
"It was really a good place our team's enjoyed completely thanks to the Thrillophilia expert Rishab he suggested a nice place where my team enjoyed nicely great hospitality from Anthony n team(Basavesh, Amit, Prithvi) from the day we entered to the day came out we enjoyed so much with a lot of activities n food was really awesome we enjoyed it. One thing I want them to improve is Rain dance could have been more fun if it could be covered from up n some disco lights added it would be more fun. Thank you Thrillophilia team n Anthony n team for keeping us entertain "

Worth for money you spend. Activities were enjoyable. Food is good. Property is very nice. Tent stay is well arranged. Apart from these There are few things where they make a difference from other resorts.Very friendly staffs starting from the person who coordinated booking,activity coordinators, kitchen staffs, which make them unique from other resorts. When I requested milk for my baby, they were very kind enough to wash milk bottle with hot water and filled milk, I was surprised they way they are taking care of adhoc requests from customers comes in between their busy daily routine. Kayaking thr staff offered as to take our 2 yr old baby on boat when they saw he(baby) was crying for the same. Very Good property managed by excellent staffs.

It was the sudden plan and turn out to be awesome experience. We were 8 friends and this place turned out to be a unique opportunity to explore things which we have never tried in any of other outings. Rappleing, mud volleyball are the things which were extraordinary. Straying in tent, music, campfire l. Are the things people travel to places to enjoy and here this one is the closest to Bangalore.
