I visit chitravana every year to cool my nerves down from my hectic schedule and routine job. This time it was very special as it was my son's first visit and he is just 18 months. He enjoyed the freedom, the nature, the ducks, had bath in the pool, lovely moments. Mostly the dinner time live music, he was dancing in joy on the stage and there was candle light dinner too.
Overall as usual and as expected an awesome experience.

We were a group of 4 couples who were looking for a good weekend getaway from Bangalore. That's when we stumbled upon Chitravana resorts. We booked our rooms online and faced no hassles during our check in.
The place is near the Mysore Ring road and a little away from the main city. Our first impression of the resort was good. The place has a lot of greenery and the green cover or the location has not been tampered much with concrete.
The rooms were very neat. We had booked the AC cottages. Every room had a balcony facing the green garden and the bathrooms were very clean too. The minus is that, they do not provide drinking water bottles or jugs in the room. So you need to carry your water bottle and fill water from the water cans which is placed in every floor in the corridor. Room service was satisfactory.
About the outdoors, There is a basketball net, a small ground where you could play outdoor games, a duck pond,kids play area and a pool. We did not go towards the pool as it kept drizzling on and off and pool was not the place to be. So cannot comment much on that.
The small sporting equipment like shuttles, racquets,bat, balls etc were readily and easily available.
There were a lot of interesting bird species that we spotted in the resort. and beware of insects too.
The restaurant is just ok. The food was priced ok and the taste was average. Not too good but not bad either. Stay away from cocktails.
There was some band performing some hindi retro music towards the evening and they had some very good singers as well.
Overall, the resort is good. But there is nothing much to do here, beyond a day or two. Would recommend the place to anybody who wants to just have a quiet weekend away from the hustle bustle of the city.

This happens to be my second visit. This place is the best suited for people who want to be in a forest like environment and completely on a relaxed mode.
Accomdation, food are good. Could have been better if they can some more leisure activities other than badminton, cricket etc.
Staff are friendly and very supportive.
Strongly recommended for family, friends & couple stay

Had been to chitravana for an outing to relax .
Positives: good ambiance, feel like in midst of nature surrounded by trees and chirping sounds of birds, and has a pool(did not use it though), open air theater was a highlight (spent a quality time )which had an orchestra with good melodies along with a candle light dinner and an artificial rain of sorts in the middle of dining area.,
good rooms as showed in pics neat and hygienic ( had taken a double AC room)
Scope of improvement:
quality of Veg. Food to be looked into and one Billing for restaurant to be made during check out rather than disturbing after each meal(which was annoying)
Conveyance: better to have a own transport ( bus frequency is less from Mysore)

We loved everything about this wonderful and beautiful resort. Rooms were quiet, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was terrific and location was awesome – surrounded by trees. Staff is very friendly and courteous. Service is good and swimming pool was big and well maintained. I will definitely recommend this calm place to my other friends.
