At the foothills of unspoiled Kemmangundi, The Last Resort’s stunning location itself is worth the trip. And the budget prices only make it a more attractive retreat. So, if you are planning a trip on the weekend, we recommend that you book your room well in advance. Also, travelling to The Last Resort on weekdays has its perks. The owners offer massive discounts and you can snap up a room plus three meals for as low as INR 1,300 per person. If you only want a room to stay, the rent can cost you as little as INR 550.
There are 21 independent cottages, surrounded by tall trees and gardens, at The Last Resort. The spacious rooms come with cosy beds and with large bathrooms. A flat-screen TV and free WiFi are the only luxuries you’ll get here. Since there’s not many restaurants or shops nearby, we recommend that you sign up for their homely meals while making a reservation. For people who love exploring the outdoors, you can wander about the gardens, try your hand at a few games, and also cosy up by campfires by night.
Even though The Last Resort is located amidst hills and forests it is still well-connected to the tourist hotspots in Chikamagalur. Trek up the Kemmanagundi Hills to reach ‘Z’ point that offers scenic views of the mist-covered mountains. A short drive will also take you to the frothy white waters of the Hebbe Falls and the gushing Kalhatti Falls. Wildlife enthusiasts should visit the Bhadra Tiger Reserve and explore the lush Jagara Pass Valley.
