Its enchanting setting with spectacular views and a salubrious climate surrounded by abundant and varied flora and fauna of this region makes Bamboo Banks an ideal getaway.
Zerene and Siasp Kothavala started the Guest House in 1974 making them the pioneers in this area. In over 40 years satisfied guests from around the world have been their best advertisement, with many returning as friends.
The Sprawling acreage of the property houses just 7 cottages of which 3 are independent ( Brick house, The Annexe, and The Cottage) and 2 separate units of twin cottages ( Acacia and Jacaranda, and Stone Houses I & II).This ensures that even at the busiest of times the number of guests at Bamboo Banks is not more than 30. We remain small and exclusive, so that our guests can enjoy the property in its natural surroundings, get personal attention and have a memorable holiday.
The Guest House has 7 cottages of which 3 are detached and 2 units of of twin cottages .
The cottages are well appointed with fully furnished bedrooms, attached bathrooms with western style lavatories and running hot and cold water. All the cottages are Air conditioned and has a fridge, kettle for making of tea/coffee, water filter, cable /Satellite TV and Wi-Fi.
The Cottages are a little distance away from the main house and from each other so maximum privacy is assured. Each Cottage is different in its design and furnishing so that a rural and "Back to Nature" ambience is created with all modern facilities and conveniences.
