“Loved every moment.”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

This place combines raw, rustic beauty with all modern amenities. The whole place is green and has lots of water bodies. The food is fresh and good.
there is enough entertainment for a families and with so many tame animals around, it is a perfect place to connect with nature..
Highly Recommended.

Meeting your school pals after 3 decades calls for some quite and exotic place with complete privacy,and to party..and that's exactly what 12 of us got..The perfect setting for our annual picnic..Away from the concrete jungle..into the jungle..Giridhar Menon, the creative brainchild, has done a wonderful job in using what would be waste, to interesting practical usage. Tyres with nylon wires for comfy seating, broken beer bottles as light shades,saris with borders used at the edges of the mosquito nets.wooden planks to cover the roof..rooty plants to cover ceilings..overall an ethereal experience..add to this ,some wonderful company..A monkey that hangs on to you as you walk, playful dogs, a hamster,rabbits,horses,ducks..etc..Children's delight.. A pond to fish or boat..and a zip line across to the pond..
A stocked and tastefully created bar..check it out when the lights come on!
And 3 wonderfully designed cottages which can comfortably accommodate 4 people each..
Simple and tasty meals and delightfully helpful staff.. Definitely recommended and would love to go again..

Room Tip: Each cottage is a delight.and has a unique style of its own.2 Ac cottages and one Non a/c

place is beautiful with several pet animals, with a very famous little monkey ( mougli) which sits on your shoulders. good food, Theme based rooms, no TV is best when you are with family and one really enjoys. best part is the chairs and tables are made of worn out tyres which are in BAR and and Deck area..... Lots of candles to be added on Dining tables for romantic couples, roads to Farmhouse are extremely in poor conditions, paddle boat to be an added to pond.

there is not mistaking the farm stay feel as you are in midst of a wide collection of farm animals and birds. we stayed in the bamboo cottage which was big but also allowed lot of insects (moths, bugs) to enter in through the gaps between the bamboos. The post monsoon end september heat was killing with high humidity. While bamboo cottage doesnt have an AC the other cottages have ACs and it would be wise to use them during the summer and pre-winter months. Food was Ok. . . simple, home made stuff but can get monotonous (esp for kids) if staying for more than a night.

The fun part was the zip line above the pond which each one of us did twice. . . kids just enjoyed it. . as they did the trampoline.

Girish is a good guy to chat with and take a stroll around the farm. He is very helpful and always eager to make the stay as comfortable as possible.

We had a good time and the only real spoilsport was the hot and humid weather. It will be great to go again in winter.

Room Tip: All 3 cottages except the bamboo cottage have ACs. It is advisable to take an AC cottage for a comfo...

The place is good with several farm animals. The rooms are a let down in terms of amenities and lighting. There is so little lighting that you need a torch to find something. Food is ok. Service needs to improve as it is pretty basic. The access road is extremely bad and should be avoided especially during the monsoon.

Room Tip: JAL is a big room with a hall, a bedroom and a loft. AKASH is too small for even a couple but the vi...

we loved the quality time spent at the resort.. Food is too delicious, staff is always ready for the service and best part is cleanliness.. when you have horses, monkey, buffaloes, dogs etc around you have to be pretty adamant about the cleanliness part, that's where Balaji Farms is the best. My pet, freedom loved it!! He had never enjoyed this much before, and I am very eager to bring him again n again to this place...!! Thanks a lot guys for the wonderful experience..!!!
