Very Good
Went there based on the reviews here. Pros: -Easy access to the place from main road towards Nandi hills (few had mentioned about muddy road to the parking..but thats just 100meters and not 2km like how someone told here) -Common areas are maintained well with ample lighting and seating -Badminton,Cricket,Football options and many indoor games -Majority of the staff was friendly -Tent facility was a good experience, got comfortable options -Music,campfire etc was taken care Cons: -Restrooms were pathetic, had to close the nose to enter (cant imagine how they can maintain it like that with all other facilities maintained well) -There was no water on 2nd day morning and none bothered to fix even after complaining multiple times. We were directed to a tap to brush and wash face. -Food was average. For breakfast though we had informed in advance that we can make it only by 8:30, (many people joined only by then) most of the items were already over, and we had to fill with the items left. I couldn't believe that even Jam for bread was also over. -You cannot get a peaceful sleep in the tent in the cold if you have singing/screaming/chatting neighbors even at 2 am With bit more care they can make this place awesome!! I don't know if it was just us who had to face these as I saw majority rating 5 for this place. Anyway this was what we faced.
Hi, We recently completed our experience through this package and overall it was nice 1st camping experience away from city’s hustle and bustle. But I observed that these reviews are mix of multiple places since this particular place doesn’t have swimming pool or many amenities or setup which other people calling out in their reviews. It’s mostly an evening & night stay option to experience camping , bonfire, a few indoor and outdoor games in quite good maintained premises. Staff has been supportive and food was nice as well, recommended to try once but confirm about amenities or expectations by calling before placing the booking.
"It is the first time for me camping and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff is polite and helped us if case we need anything."
Excellent
