A: The approach road upto the parking area of the resort is tarred. However, there can be stretches of road on the way which may see regular wear and tear mainly due to onslaught of weather during monsoons. Therefore we would caution Guests coming in their own vehicles, to factor delays due to rough stretches during certain periods of the year and to check with the resort on the approximate time it would take to reach the resort. Ample parking is also available at the designated parking lot within the resort. Also note that the small stretch covering approx.50 mts. between the parking lot and the lobby area of the resort is rough. Hence Guests are advised to park their vehicles at the Parking lot and avail our services to usher in the luggage to the rooms, rather than drive themselves upto the lobby.
Check-in & Room Service
A: Check in 12 noon. Check out 11 a.m. Early check-in or late check-out would be possible based upon availability of rooms.
A: Keeping in mind, the way the rooms in the resort is constructed using mud excavated from the very site where it stands; it has been our constant endeavor to preserve and retain the purity of rammed earth within every room inside the resort. With an exception to Guests who have disability problems, we typically encourage our Guests to dine at our restaurant than having it served inside the rooms since the aroma of the food lingers within the walls long after the Guests have even checked-out.
Terrain & Weather
A: Banasura Hill Resort is situated in a hilly terrain and utmost care was taken during the construction of the resort to retain the terrain as is. All the structures in the resort are built at various elevations to seamlessly blend with the terrain without causing any harm to the environment. The waterfalls at the backyard of the resort is at the highest elevation at 3600 ft above sea level, while the rooms, and the restaurant is at 3,100 feet followed by streams below which are at 2800 ft. All the pathways and steps are well paved with stones and mud for Guests to walk.
A: Any time of the year is good to travel and every season creates its own magic in Banasura. For instance, during the peak of summer, Guests can experience how it is to stay in the earthen rooms even without air-conditioners. During monsoon the 'Banasura Fall' becomes awesome with the water plunging down in a thunderous roar from a height of more than a hundred feet and it’s pure delight to stand at the foot of the falls. The mild winter at the resort has its own charm where Guests can experience the exotic flora and fauna of the region.
A: Network coverage from most mobile service providers is available within the resort and so is high speed cable connectivity. However, at times or at certain areas within the resort, the range may remain poor or lost due to the uneven terrain and/or weather conditions. The lobby area of the Earth building is where Guests are provided internet access and is provided at no extra cost.
