Our trip to Ecoland was a disaster from start to finish. We arrived to find the the rooms were tiny-barely big enough to accommodate 2 people, let alone 2 with a small child. The family who travelled with a 6 year old suffered for space and had to... move their suitcases every time they had to use the restroom. We were advised to pay for a tent. The tent turned out to be a very small Decathlon one in which the children could barely stand up, and we were charged Rs. 4000/- a night for it. That is more than the cost of a new tent at Declathlon.There was not a single place for anyone to sit outside in the shade, and the tent was only usable to sleep at night because of the heat. We ended up needing to be indoors, squashed in to an extremely small room because the sun was so brutal and even a single umbrella was not provided for relief.There was no hot water in the bathroom, there was construction going on throughout our stay, including at 7 am when a truck was continuously reversing and moving forward for 30 minutes. The construction also led to one of the cars being damaged. The property didnt even have a bottle opener.When we brought up these issues with the owner, we were given platitudes about how it was intentional that we experience rustic living to the point of discomfort. There are plenty of better places in Shoolagiri to enjoy its natural beauty. Avoid this one.read more

It’s very close to Bangalore and the route is all comfortable. Shwetha and the staff at property was friendly and very active. We loved the cabin, it was cozy, clean with a beautiful view. Surrounding is calm and relaxing. We had a great experience,... our pet too enjoyed running leash free on the farm and we would visit again. We got a farm tour by shwetha, she showed us tamarind, mangoes, coconut trees n other vegetation. We enjoyed the bonfire and also loved the breakfast- Pongal, idli, dosa. The only suggestion is to work on the lunch n dinner meals a bit and to expand the food items and taste as well.read more

Excellent send envigorating stay at Ecoland with efficient support from Swetha and her team. Very accessible to most parts of Bangalore and great for kids who can take their eyes off a TV or iPad.

We visited this place for a one- night stay and it did not disappoint at all- the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the food is simple and wholesome and the pricing is 100% value. They have a friendly dog on the premises (a brown dog named... Blackie 😀) who was our canine companion who also accompanied us when we visited the nearby lake. If you re looking for a great place near Bengaluru to unwind , this is the perfect tonic, enjoy the rustic feel and the cool breeze!read more

Excellent stay! You want to be cut off from the noisy city life, you don't like the crackers bursting and those loud noises, you should choose ecoland farms at Berikai. This place has beautiful cottages amid a serene landscape with the most friendly... staff. The staff needs a special mention, they are friendly, forthcoming and accommodating. The staff went out of their way to care for me and my two furbabies. My new fur-friend Blacky, the best trek-tour guide everis another great add to the property. Shweta, the care-taker of the property, she understands your needs, she is a beautiful human being who is a listener and a great company. She manages the property and the staff with great charm, I have learnt a few leadership lessons from her.Overall an excellent stay!!read more

We had a very pleasant two day trip to Ecoland farms. We got to chill, spend time as a family. The staff and especially Ms.Swetha took great care of us. Grilling veggies, fishing, seeing farming activities and giving my daughter a ride on the JCB... bucket were some things we greatly enjoyed. Thank you.read more

This place is one of the best kept secrets near Bangalore. We stayed for 2 days and it's surrounded by lush greenery as the nearby areas are protected forests. Frequent sighting of wild rabbits and peacocks along with a cozy cottage ensured that the... kids had a good fun time. The barbeque was well marinated and tasty, went with the wonderful conversations we had.read more

A place that feels like warm chicken soup for the soul!This place was nothing short of therapeutic. A 360 degree view of greenery, fresh farm grown veggies for meals and the most hospitable of staff willing to go the extra mile to ensure everyone... has a great time.We were a party of 2 humans and 2 doggos to visit this property over the 2nd October long weekend. Currently there are two cottages, but they're in the process of expanding (great news). We stayed in the Sunrise cottage - it was cosy but not cramped. The glass windows offered a wonderful view of the clouds gently moving past as you lie down on the bed. The furniture, made of upcycled compressed wood shavings, gave a unique look to the cottage. We found ourselves mostly in the sit out area where we enjoyed multiple cups of tea, vibrant sunsets and wind in our hair.This review would be incomplete if I didn't talk about the constant cool breeze, for me it was the signature of this farm; what truly made our stay feel magical.Shwetha is the rockstar of the property, managing everything from making everyone feel at home, taking us on curated hikes to local viewpoints and lakes, offering farm fresh leafy veggies and even organising a barbecue with her special sauce recipe. She is the soul of the place, always greeting with a warm smile and following it up with great conversations. Knowing that we like animals, she even arranged for us to play with baby goats on the farm.Clara and Vincent made delicious home style local meals for us, every dish was lip smacking!Last but not the least, Blackie was the default show stealer with his goofy yet stoic nature! His presence was comforting and his friendliness astonished us (because of the myth that dobermans are scary).Our doggos had a wonderful time, what with the multiple walks, hikes and grass rolls they got to do.Definitely coming back for more chicken soup for the soul, because that's exactly what this property feels like.read more

We recently had the chance to visit Farm Ecoland, the latest entry to Linger vacations with our dogs. First word that comes to mind while here is Tranquil. Since it’s located away from the highway, there’s no semblance of noise that one associates... with the city. Once there, we could only feel the sound of wind, which is the highlight of the place. The cottages are modern, thoughtfully built and big enough for two people. A big window opens right to the lush surrounding greenery, and provides magnificent view to take a nap while watching the clouds move against bright blue sky. Clean washrooms, and a pretty sit-out area to enjoy the sunset.Coming to the hospitality (which is a trademark of Linger vacations), we’re delighted with the Manager of the property: Shwetha. She’s a powerhouse when it comes to fulfilling the guests’ requirements. She took us on lovely hikes along the beaten path to a small hillock where one can get 360-degree view of the area, through a jungle laden with Lantana to the nearby village and via pretty lake back to the property. Shwetha runs a tight ship with the staff and always greets with a smile. The trip was made special by two other factors. First one being sumptuous food prepared by Clara and Vincent, the couple who stays there and secondly: Blacky; the most affectionate and goofy Doberman you’d ever see. He’ll accompany you to most places if not chilling by the dining area and soaking up the sun. The dining area itself is a place to experience nothing but great food, great conversations and some of the best breeze one can experience in this part of the country. We also had a chance to meet the owner Mr. Rajesh who shared his views about the farm life and made our stay more memorable through small gestures. We were treated with bonfire and tasty barbeque on one of the evenings. All in all, it’s a great place to do nothing, and we’ll be visiting soon again.read more

Had an amazing time at Ecoland by linger. Woke up to a gorgeous view from our room which had a large window in front of the bed. The property manager Swetha made us feel so comfortable and arranged a bbq and bonfire for just the two of us . The farm... dog Blacky is so friendly and was by our side the whole time. Definitely planning on visiting again soon.read more

The experience at Ecoland was far from ordinary...an ideal retreat far away from the city humdrum and yet travel time from B'luru just about an hour and a half! The efficient manager Swetha, the wonderful cook, thai-amma, the all-purpose lad, Suraj,... made the stay so memorable...the treks, visit to farms, sumptuous meal, quiet serene atmosphere and to top it all, the constant company of Blacky, the Doberman, made it a unique getaway!read more

Ecoland Farms @ Berigai is the perfect getaway for a 3-5 day trip with plenty of doing absolutely nothing. Seriously, if you’re looking for something within 2 hours drive, quiet and ideal to recharge your mental batteries - go here!The cabins are... super clean, comfortable, functional, with great views of the farm and surrounding hills. We spent a fair amount of time outside the cabins just taking in the cool hill air and the view.Shweta, Clara, Vincent, Thaiyamma and the rest of the staff at the property are the sweetest - they went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. All meals during our stay were local feasts (that chicken biryani!) and so tasty (we even brought back some of the sambar powder and the leftover vadas from breakfast). They also organised an outdoor BBQ one evening which was perfect for the weather.We were fortunate to have Rajesh, who owns the place, stop by and give us some tips on where to go for that morning walk and some local historical attractions that we could check out.Lastly, if you like dogs then you’ll love Blackie - the resident caretaker who will shower you with cuddles and take a nap outside your cabin just to let you know he is available for more cuddles. We can’t wait to go back in winter.read more

The farm was located in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by mountains and forests. The accommodations were simple but comfortable, and the food was delicious. The owners of the farm were incredibly welcoming and friendly, and they made sure... that we had a wonderful time.During our stay, we were able to participate in a variety of activities, including feeding the animals, harvesting crops, and exploring the farm on foot. We also learned a lot about farming and rural life from the owners of the farm.Overall, our stay at the farm was a truly memorable experience. We learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and made some great memories. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and relaxing vacation.read more
