Reviewed 10 April 2012

You will not find a reason to complain about the location and natural beauty of Ananthagiri. Its simply awesome. The facilities of the resort were good. Rooms were big, bathroom was clean, AC worked perfectly and the view from the balcony was to die for. But I wish I only had good things to say about the place. Here is a list of things that happened to us, leaving us with a very bad taste in the mouth:
1. Please beware that no other cell phone network covers this place apart from BSNL. To top it all, neither does the hotel has STD facility (as claimed by reception staff) nor can it connect you to any local number in you call the reception from your room. The only way to make contact with the outside world is to go to the market (10 mins walk) and make a call.
2. The local Tribal Council run taxi union runs a monopoly in terms of car rental rates and you cant beat them. once some member of the union quotes a price to you, the union will prevent anyone else from quoting a lesser price. In our case, we were quoted Rs. 2500 for a day trip to Borra Caves and Arakku. we did not confirm and tried exploring other options. Another driver quoted 1500 and we agreed. in about 30 mins, he came back and said that his driver is busy and if we were to take the cab, it would cost us Rs 2000. we agreed to this as well. then 1 hr before the journey, he stated that since we were quoted a price previously (Rs 2500), we will have to pay that only. Finally when we threatened to cancel the trip, he settled for Rs.2000. Moral of the story, don't fall in their trap. Book your car from Vizag, if possible. Some of the hotel staff are a part of this nexus.
3. We were unfortunate to be there during the time when the local tribal population was celebrating Holi. They barricaded the road between Ananthagiri and Arakku with logs or bamboo and would only let you pass if you paid up. The demands varried vetween Re. 1 to Rs. 10. We were stopped 51 times, on way, between nanthagiri and Arakku (I am not exaggerating).
once our driver argued with the people and as a punishment, a bucket-full of water was thrown inside the car, leaving us completely drenched.
