- 280 kms. from Bengaluru
- Bengaluru - Kunigal - Hassan - Belur - Chikmagalur - Honahalla Estate
Stay amidst of nature surrounded by lush green coffee plantations close to the jungle. The cottages have a scenic view of a coffee estate and one could hear the chirping of the birds all day which makes the stay pleasant.
The property is attached to Bhadra Tiger Reserve which makes the home for many wildlife species like Tiger, Leopard, Spotted and barking deers, Elephants etc. You may not be surprised to the visit of elephants to the property. Trekking inside the plantation or taking a safari into the forest are the major activities one could do to view the wild animals in their natural habitat.
South/North Indian style food and also rice Kadubu, Neer Dosa, Akki Rotti etc will be served..
Honahalla Estate booking are on hold due to covid-19.

nice place!! good food & stay
Food quality and environment was good, over all good experience. Problem was, there was no hot water supply, we had to do bath with the cold water, should have been taken care of this.

Location - 5/5 (Amidst a nice coffee plantation and adjacent to Muthooti Wildlife Santuary)
Food - 4/5 (The staff was very cooperative in understanding the requirement)
Cleanliness - 2/5 (Dirty linens, furniture and curtains is a mood spoiler)
Amenities - 1/5 (Horrible plumbing in the bathrooms, muddy water etc. needs to be corrected)
Value for money - 2/5 (Based upon the above ratings and comparing it with other options)
If amenities and cleanliness is addressed, I would like to revisit the place at the same price.
The property is at an excellent location. The Muthodi safar and forest is just around this. The caretakers are very helpful and the food was excellent.
The stay was great and the food was good. The ambiance is awesome right in the forest it seems like (actually it borders the reserve). Be warned it your not ready to stay with insects and animals or rough it out in the absence of electricity dont do it. I loved every bit of the stay very close to the Bhadra tiger safari and spotted at least 22 birds in 4 hours of the morning. Only thing is the place could use an inverter i understand they dont use a generator coz its in the forest (very good).
Food is average, no power during day. Location was good. Host needs to be more active with customers.
We had a very pleasant and memorable stay at the Honnahalla Estate. Our hosts provided very good service. Food served was quite good as well. Location is just perfect amidst the coffee estates on the fringes of Muthodi forest. One can constantly hear peacock calls and other birds chirping.
The only concern was there was no electricity in the morning and afternoon which was a huge let down as it is extremely difficult to stay in rooms in hot weather with no fan. Due to this we couldnt rest comfortably after a journey to reach there.

It was a nice experience . We informed Trailroot about our visit just a day before and Trailroot has managed very nicely with all required amenities. We enjoyed our trip . Thanks much Trailroot. And the coordinator was really sweet in handling things though we booked at the last minute.

Good home stay, awesome location, food is decent and tasty.. Bathrooms and the room could have been cleaner and needs improvement. There was power outage all day and with no generator policy and no fans summers could be very difficult to stay.
Decent homestay for budget travellers...nice food n stay, close to Bhadra forest!!

The only good part of this estate was its location, especially since it had a water body within the property.
With regards to the rest of our experience, I would say, I wouldnt like to visit again, unless there are some major changes to the set up.
Villa’s room or owner room is not good at all. Other things was good
