15th Aug was a long weekend and as usual Hubby Dearest was restless. Lets go somewhere! .. As expected, all the hotels, resorts within 500Km of Bangalore were booked. I was secretly happy that I would finally get a weekend to relax. But I really should not underestimate my hubby. Hez the poster boy for jugaad. Somehow he found a booking at a resort at Chittoor. We left on on Sunday morning at 8 Am and reached BANS resort at 12. They have some water games and since it was so hot, we jumped into the pool rt away..They have a wave pool, a swimming pool, a trampoline, man made water fall, misty rain, emu, ducks, birds, a mini indoor amusement video games etc. , .. It was an ok ok place. The rooms were AC and decent. Food was good.. but service very slow.
There are some nice places to see nearby which we drove down to on 15th Aug, after a flag hoisting ceremony at the hotel.. You can visit the Chandragiri fort that houses a archeological museum and they also have a laser show at 7 PM on weekends [ we missed this ] .. Bought a few goodies on the way back – pots from palamner, Freshly picked custard apples & jamuns sold by the road side.
A decent place to go for a weekend.
