Here is just some of what our guests tell us

Ruth and Sudhakar

We personally love it for the colour theme running in the cottages, which obviously makes for such a lovely colour play in the mornings.


The cottages and their placements ensure privacy and a brilliant view of the estate. Furthermore, the sounds of nature you wake up to are just amazing. It’s more than a homestay in Sakleshpur.

Aparna Bhagavatula

Mugilu is a birder’s paradise ! If you are a patient photographer, you will most likely be rewarded with some good shots . Else if you are happy to watch the birds through a binoculars, you have certainly reached the right place.

Nidhi & Vivek

The place is serene and something out of a page in heaven. Furthermore, the cottages overlook into thick green forest land and there’s a beautiful meadow close by that is a perfect spot to watch the sun set. The food, the ambience and the hospitality in terms of personal attention we got from every member of the staff including Sapna and Chandan has been undoubtedly impeccable. They take a lot of care for the vision they want to create for Mugilu and it’s apparent in the way they manage the place, their staff and their three adorable mutts (who also make sure to be at their hospitable best :)) It’s a must visit if you are looking for a quick get away from the city’s crazy hustle bustle and enjoy some peace and calm.
