While Bangalore has some resorts in the proximity, some of the best resorts around Bangalore are located little far from the suburbs. The "Garden City" which was once a tourist location has taken a new title "the silicon valley of India", but the native flora and fauna are scarified for human progress.
In an effort to guide our readers, we analysed all the favorite resorts in Bangalore based on several factors and here is the list of the Top 10 Best resorts in and around Bangalore.
#1 Golden Palms Resort and Spa
Golden Palms has the best swimming pool in a resort setting which makes it an ideal weekend spot on summer. Located off Tumkur road, it takes about 1 and half hours to reach the resort from Majestic.

#2 Guhantara Resort
Guhantara Resort is often called as the Cave Resort of Bangalore, its entrance resembles a cave. Anyone who visits the resort will sure praise the architecture.

Rain dancing, bow and arrow archery, bicycle rides etc.
Room rates are on the higher side which starts from Rs. 5000 per night. But those of us who spend most of us time amidst air-conditioned concrete cubicles immersed in day dreaming or worrying about money, the resort really offers the much needed relaxation.
#3 Eagleton Golf Village
Eagleton is a resort built on the sidelines of Eagleton Golf Village. If you have a heavy wallet and expect class A services, then Eagleton is your place. The resort is one of the few places in Bangalore with a helipad.Guests are treated well and the resort offers maximum privacy.
The restaurants offer rich and tasty food but come with a high price tag. Indoor games include badminton and snooker. Open party area, auditorium, 24 hour coffee shop, conference halls, swimming pool, tennis courts...the resort has it all.
At Rs. 6000 per night the room rates are costly and not for the perfect middle class. If you haven’t played golf, you can get hands on while you stay in the resort. Overall the resort is too good and can cut your pockets deep. In a country where more than 99.99 % of the population haven’t walked on a golf course, a stay in the resort can offer that experience.
