Thanks in advance.
If your budget is around 3000k a night/room then Sherlocks is the best place to be in. www.littlearth.in

Else you could check out Sagar resorts.The resort is quite a different style of construction. www.sagar-resorts.com

Sabol is also good,should cost you around 3k a night for cottage.

Lastly Glyngarth Villa is another good place.Since you are two groups,you could rent out the villa. www.glyngarthvilla.com

Thanks Ranjith for the quick response. I am looking for something in the range of Rs. 2000 but it seems like the rates are higher due to season.

Try Tranquiltea's bungalow in Ooty. It is a pretty charming place, but not a very scenic location (it's right behind YWCA - overlooking the racecourse). Rooms are clean and spacious, and the major attraction is the food : Rajan the caretaker and his wife are wonderful cooks (You need to tell him in advance what to make - his desserts are wonderful). But the building has 3 bedrooms and it may be awkward if the third one is occupied by someone you don't know.

The last time I stayed there was a couple of years back and the rates were Rs 1500/- per room then - and I was told it has gone up somewhat lately. The rate on his website says Rs 2.5K, but I'm sure you can get it lower than that : try negotiating with Sandeep Subramani - the owner. I seem to have misplaced his number, but I have PM'd you the caretaker Rajan's number. Try talking to him first and find out about availability, you can get Sandeep's number from him.

Default Accomodation @ Namakkal

Need information on good hotel to stay for a family in Namakkal. Good ambience and service, attached good restaurant and secured car parking are the priority points to choose. Since there are kids, a small play area for kids would be a bonus welcome even at small extra cost.

Heard of Nala but their website dont have tariff and photos to make a decision for the person involved. No reviews found on the net too. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated !

Nala and Golden Chariot are good options as per my colleague who is from Namakkal. However he too not sure of the price range, just said both will be in same price bracket.

Please find the rates for Nala Hotels

Standard: Rs. 1299+taxes
Grand: Rs. 1499+taxes
Deluxe: Rs. 1999+taxes

All rates are for double occupancy. (Extra bed: Rs. 250 I guess)
They offer some 10-15% corporate discount as well.

We were planning a trip to Bandipur. The top resort choices were Jungle lodges and Tusker Trails. Can anyone please share their experiences with these options. Are there more decent option other than these two. Any suggestions are welcome!

Guys, I need a decent serviced apartment for about 20 days from 16th June onwards. I'm looking for decent places in and around Whitefield, Marathalli, ORR area.

If you have come across any such decent serviced apartment/guest house, please let me know.

A friend mentioned Dhole's Den was good, he'd visited last year with family.

I have never stayed at a resort in Bandipur though I've been on the route several times on the way to other places like Ooty. Had lunch at Jungle Lodges once, that's a good place though not very big since it's in the forest area (I guess most hotels/resorts in Bandipur will be on a small area being inside the forest). If you're open to other nearby places, do consider Masinagudi as well, there are lots of resorts there too but maybe not the upmarket/expensive ones.
Not sure if this helps.

I just PMd you contact details for a serviced apartment in Prestige Shantiniketan, a great landmark on Whitefield road. They have good rooms with compl. breakfast, wifi etc and I think the guests can avail common amenities of like gym and swimming pool.

The downside would be you need to make a visitor entry everytime at security gate and walk little inside the compound (but its beautiful garden)

I have not been to Tusker Trails so can not comment, however Jungle Lodges Bandipur is good and they are near the forest entry gate on Gundelpet - Ooty road (~1km before gate). This helps you if you want to take a trek to forest in the morning and also not much time is wasted in getting to the forest for safari.

We have been to Masinagudi couple of times hence this time to Bandipur for the wildlife experience hence looking for a resort closest to the national park.

We had a good experience at other Jungle lodges such as Galibore and Doddamakali but the Bandipur one is generally heavily booked. Hence exploring other options or else have to go back there.

So you can give Masinagudi a miss and try something in Bandipur (Dhole's Den is in Bandipur inside the forest). A quick check on the net yielded some more in Bandipur like The Serai and Windflower - you may want to try these too.
Yes, almost all the Jungle Lodges properties are good.
