  • Beautiful panoramic view right out from the books

    by Vipul B on

    We drove to Upasana retreat from Mangalore and what a drive it was. The winding hills and the waterfalls on the way made the drive a delight. The fresh air laden with clouds made us more excited about the trip. As we approach Upasana, there is a stretch which is a mud road with a 2 meter visibility in the afternoon (2:30pm) because of the clouds. On reaching Upasana we were greeted with a welcome drink and the check-in process was smooth. The staff was helpful and the resort was covered with clouds. The 360 degree view of the mountains made us more ecstatic. We were served a sumptuous lunch soon after. The food at the resort is mainly local cuisine with locally grown produce which made the food even tastier. The resort also has games like table tennis, badminton, carrom and chess to keep everyone entertained. The karaoke system was a big hit on the 2nd day where we spent about 3 hours in the evening on the 2nd night and was even better as we had the complete resort to ourselves. The activities were well planned esp the trip to Elaneeru Falls. The rooms were spacious and maintained well. The simplicity of the place made it all the more better. The resort was situated in the mountains with hardly any network coverage except for BSNL and Jio. There are no luxuries like AC's, but you really dont need them as well. We were travelling with elderly people and they ensured that they were comfortable as well. Just be one with nature here and leave the gadgets away. I would definitely suggest this place for a weekend with family or friends.

  • A gem in the Western Ghats

    by Edassery on

    This resort off Samse town really offers you an amazing (almost 360 degree) view of the mountain range and valley around. The resort is an overall excellent package for couple of activities, food, mini spa and off all, a real getaway with minimal wireless access (literally) and external disturbance. The staff is courteous and the food is typical Malnadu cuisine that's extremely stomach friendly but more suitable for South Indian taste buds. The estate is maintained and groomed very well and there are a few recreation activities for all to enjoy. The biggest issue though is that, you will be kind of stuck for the duration of the stay here and can't really move out too much without the help of a 4x4 and their driver. Well, there are one or two attractions you can visit yourself in a sedan but mostly the terrain needs a 4x4. But that shortcoming doesn't takeaway the beauty of this gem in the ghats. The following is the summary for anyone interested in taking a vacation here: Major plus points: + Exceptional location and view + Excellent food (Malnadu style only) + Extremely well maintained property with good recreation (badminton, swimming pool, caroms, bonefire etc) + Very friendly staff (mostly Kannada speaking, with some English/Hindi) + Minimal alcohol available (beer, breezer etc) + Spa is reasonably priced Improvement areas - No laundry service, there's a dryer though - No wifi, there's wifi but very poor signal and mostly down - Many carriers don't work there. No signal for airtel/Jio, BSNL, idea work - No kettle in the rooms - No standard breakfast items which may be a must (e.g. No flakes, bread/toast, eggs etc) - No fish or prawns in the menu. It seems it's not available in this area. Non veg means it's only chicken - Towels smell of spa oils. Looks like spa and room share the same towels? Other tips: . Rafting is available only in June-July . Kudremukh view point can be accessed via normal sedans . Yelaneeru falls (very near to Upasana) requires a steep climb of about 150ft, not suitable for the elderly and those with knee problems etc

  • Splendid stay

    by Swetha R on

    We were a family of 5 adults and 3 children ( includes an infant) travelling for 2 nights 3 days. We were happy that none of the photos on the website were photoshopped!! Amazing view, very hospitable staff! They have all the facilities as quoted in the website. Though we could not utilise all the facilities provided (due to kids), we did enjoy all that we could. Spa is a must try. The food is homely, tasty. They did oblige for making the infant food in their kitchen. Staff is very cordial. It was a very comfortable stay for us. Ms. Roshini coordinated the entire trip nicely and made it easy for us to locate the place. Its definitely one of my marked list of hotels. Drawbacks: The approach road is not tarred, hence would be difficult if the rains had been heavy.
