“The Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We were 13 adults and 2 Children who resided in Skanda from 23 May to 25 May.It is Heaven On earth.The rooms are very very Spacious and the same as Seen in Pictures of their Website.The staff is very helpful especially the Cook is amazing.We had the Entire house for us.The evening Barbecques were Amazing.You would Simply love to Stay there
Some Cons:
Bath mats were dirty
The Resort is actually Far from Visiting places hence u have to travel 30 kms for each and Every place which will make U more tiring

But the Cons can be neglected if u prefer relaxing Indoors in their Resort...An Ideal Family getaway..

Room Tip: One Room has A wooden Ceiling Which Retains The Chilness,Or take a room With A Balcony.You would Lov...

We had the whole house to ourselves. we were three families with kids. we enjoyed our stay there. it is right next to the highway so the odd truck horn will be a distraction. The property is well located with nagerhole, irupu falls, dubare being nearby. The roads are not great from mysore. However, the roads in the kodagu district are good. one can explore the coffee plantations with winding roads all around.
The homestay people are very good. The food was homely and tasty. The coffee was fresh and the snacks were delectable.
The downside were less. one of the bathrooms were not functioning properly. The bikes were all with punctured tyres. the courts were not maintained. There were some confusion with the availability of safari at nagarhole. we were told that the safari was off but later found out that it was on. we could not get on the safari because of the misinformation. However, the manager Mr D Souza took care of us well.
apart from these small glitches we had a perfect homestay. I would recommend this to everyone.
USP: 1 hour away from to nagarhole (must visit), irupu falls and dubare. well maintained by the owners. value for money. very helpful homestay staff. Ideal location for south kodagu visitors

Room Tip: all rooms are very good

We spent a weekend in April at Skanda Homestay. After a scenic but bumpy drive, we arrived at the charming estate house.

Room - Large, with an antique feel. Bathrooms are large and adequately appointed. We were not the only occupants of the room - several tiny black bugs (harmless) appeared in the night, apparently very common in the rainy season.

Food - Excellent!! Healthy, tasty, and homemade.

Activities - 1) Must do: watch elephant feeding at a camp 3 KMs away 2) Excellent biking route to Pollibetta (around 25 KM roundtrip) - manager was kind enough to arrange the cycles 3) Iruppu Falls (44 KM from estate)

The only major downside was that the estate house is right on the highway. A big disappointment for people looking to get away from vehicular noise.

Overall, a very satisfying experience and the staff is very hospitable.

Skanda is our best find of a homestay in Coorg. A quick drive from Mysore, Skanda's location at Tithimathi is at the entrance to the Nagarhole National Park which allows lots of activities to be fitted in. From walks, fishing, bird-watching, to taking a guided tour of the coffee processing unit, it is all available within the large estate. Apart from these, the jungle safari at the Nagarhole NP or the Namdroling Tibetan monastry is a half day's itinerary from this homestay. The elephant feeding at the Tithimathi elephant camp is another highlight and an unique experience.
The rooms here are stylish, spacious and well kept, food is homestyle and authentic, while the service is attentive and always with a smile.
We've been here several times with family and friends since 2009 and its got better with each stay!

It is a decent place to stay, but I wouldn't rate it as worth the money that we paid. Due to the conditions of the road (which is extremely bad), I would say that the location is not good and there are not too many things that you can do around. Food was good, but the rooms (bathrooms, bed, linens) could be maintained better. It felt like the owners do concentrate much on its maintenance. The hosts were and took care of us, but during the night they were nowhere to find (they have intermittent power failures and I couldn't understand why the generator wont start automatically in the night).
