Finally I narrowed down and shortlisted the top 5 luxury resorts in Bangalore for my stay, after a lot of comparing done on the services provided by each one of them. They were: The Shreyas Retreat, Discovery Village, Ankit Vista Green Village, Goldfinch Retreat and Olde Bangalore Resort. To be frank, I liked all the 5 resorts, and was in a total confusion on which to choose. I started with the Shreyas Retreat and then proceeded to the next in my list.

The Shreyas Retreat offered

  • Pool side cottages and tented garden cottages in the lush green atmosphere
  • Pleasant, disciplined and calm stay away from the hush of city life
  • Sophisticated spa treatments, and provision for yoga and meditation
  • Organic farm giving a unique experience to the visitors.

The Discovery Village also made a great pull,

  • Offers perfect cottages, ideal for romantic honeymoon couples
  • Close to tourist spots like Muneshwara swamy temple, Bangalore palace, Bolare Dam, and many more interesting places.
  • Vegetarian and non vegetarian delicacies provided at the multi cuisine in house restaurant.

Finally when it came to Ankit Vista Green Village, I put a sudden break and booked the room here as its beauty really tugged at my heart strings!
