Angana, located in Karnataka, India, 60 Kms from Bangalore International Airport on Kanakapura Road, offers a uniquely intimate vacation experience in a retreat designed to recreate the mysteries of a land lost in time. It is neither a resort nor a hotel. It combines the comforts and ambiance of a warm, ancestral home, with services and features of a resort. Lush green lawns, manicured gardens, bursts of flowers, and mature, shady trees create an idyllic setting that induces a sense of blissful relaxation, where every wish is anticipated and answered by discreet staff.
Serenity and calm quickly envelopes you as you cross the fort-like walls surrounding Angana. Dull lanterns flicker here and there, as the evening quiet descends, gently interrupted by the gurgling sound of water pouring into the Kalyani-the swimming pool -- a stepped pool. It feels like grandma's home!
Angana is designed to take a traveler on a journey into the traditional past of South India, when life was simpler and far slower than it is today. The retreat provides an ideal environment for the city-bred, who wish to unwind amidst the quiet of the countryside. You can choose to take day hikes around the retreat with a picnic hamper, try your hand at vegetable farming, experience Ayurvedic therapies to rejuvenate your body and mind, laze around by the pool and the garden with a book from the house library. Guests can also unwind by exploring the watchtower in one corner of the property, play traditional games, or just laze around on a hammock amidst perfectly manicured lawns.
