We’ve all been there – that time when you just need a quick getaway from the city to refresh and recharge. Here, we give you our pick of the top resorts in Bangalore for that much-needed dose of leisure and recreation.
1. Guhantara Resort
Full marks for novelty at Guhantara resort – India’s first underground resort located on Kanakpura Road in Bangalore. The rugged rocky feel of the surroundings takes you into a different world, far away from the standard hotel setting you are used to. Tranquil, and absolutely calm, Guhantara is situated far away from the chaos of everyday life.
2. Golden Palms Resort
If you’re looking for a dose of pure, unbridled weekend indulgence away from the big city (but close enough to it), head to the Golden Palms Resort at Hobli, Bangalore. This sprawling properly is home to the largest swimming pool in India! Other bonuses include a massive spa, beautiful gardens, top-notch hospitality and great food.
3. Mango Mist Resort
This beautiful resort is perfect for a carefree, fun-filled weekend – after all, it was started with the purpose of letting visitors revive their golden childhood memories spent in the green fields amidst the early mist filled with mischief, joy and adventure. Who can forget the aroma of mangoes blended in the fragrance of wet mud? The resort lets you enjoy a host of exciting activities such as paintballing, rock climbing, zip lining, archery, zorbing and even a fish spa! A big draw is the mist dance floor, with an in-house DJ belting out top numbers.
4. Angsana Spa & Resort
Agsana is a personal favourite – the setting is just perfect, nestled among nature and rolling greens. It is a pleasure to get away from the city and reconnect with nature – the vivid sunrises, listening to the birds’ chirp, the aroma of freshly cut grass, and the gentle winds. Spend your evenings leisurely on the resort’s emerald lawns or by the sky blue pools. An added bonus is the highly rated spa facilities of Angsana, where you can pamper yourself to no end.
5. Clarks Exotica Resort & Spa
Sign-up for some serious indulgence by checking into the Clarks Clarks Exotica Resort & Spa. If you aren’t impressed by the lavish architecture, surely you will be bowled over by the fantastic facilities, the great food (both local and exotic), hospitality and closeness to nature. Here’s a handy hint: the romantic ones will be happy to know that the resort specializes in organizing romantic candle light dinners.
6. Olde Bangalore
Waking up to bird-song and retiring to the sound of silence are luxuries now available only miles away from habitation, unless you are at Olde Bangalore. As the cool breeze of nostalgia wafts through your mind, prepare to soak yourself in the soul of a Bangalore that is but a distant memory now – a city that was once refreshingly different from any other. What I found most fascinating about this resort was the unique luxury tent-style accommodation – surely the kids will love it!
7. Eagleton – The Golf Resort
The Eagleton is something of a legend – situated lush landscape it boasts of its imposing architecture, spread across 500 acres. Recreational and business facilities are aplenty, but pride of the property is the international standard golf course, which is counted amongst top five golf courses of the country.
