One of the best Island resort in Karnataka! Serene, beautiful, amazing are just adjectives to this place. You will only hear birds chirping and nothing else. Watch the river flow or standstill. Spot a number of birds including Peacocks. Just sit back, relax and unwind and find yourself. Apart from the river view and finding solitude, there is nothing much to do here, do not expect much. Don't miss the sunrise and sunset. Pure South Indian food, tasty and sufficient for all. Slightly costlier for the amenities provided. Worth visiting once in your lifetime.

25/2/19 - My family of 4 -myself, wife and my princesses, one is 5 and a half year old and another is just 18 months thoroughly enjoyed our two days stay on a well furnished riverside wooden cottage at this wonderful property owned by Sri Vishwas Soans - a special thanks to him. I can imagine how difficult it would be to run and manage a stay facility on a private island. My daughters roamed all around the Island guarded by two lovely guard dogs, I can't forget the love and affection they show towards guests on this heavenly place. Extend my thanks to Narayana, the boat-driver who took special care of us during our commuting. Food served here was tasty and hygienic, the staff looked calm and smiling that's all you expect on your tour. Will visit again, thanks for a great hospitality.

It's a quaint and intimate place for a holiday. It's easy to see the love and effort that has gone I tastefully setting up and maintaining the place. The owner is easy to communicate with and booking was a breeze. The staff on the island are warm yet non intrusive, and they love to feed the guests which is evident in the great meals that were dished out over the couple of days we stayed. We had a holiday to remember, would definitely recommend and would love to go back!

We stayed at water cottage room which had a very beautiful view of the river, reminded me of my stay in a boat house once in Kerala. The room is simple and elegant. Flora and fauna is at its best. And you can spot many birds like Indian peaflows, cranes, egales etc.. You will have a good company of dogs comet & shadow with few ducks when you walk around the island. The caretaker couple took real good care of us and served simple yet finger licking food.We opted for local fish which was very delicious. A special thanks to Mr. Vishwas & Mrs. Lavinia owners of the island for arranging a cake on request. And word of appreciation for keeping this island at its natural best.
