Karnataka is characterised by its diversity. This vast region of India takes in World Heritage sites, yoga retreats, lush highlands, an IT obsessed capital and an unavoidable love of cricket. It's an incredible holiday destination and our Karnataka hotels will allow you to fulfil a rich Indian holiday.
Bangalore is the major city of the region and to get to the heart of what truly matters to people here, a trip to the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium is essential. The sheer obsession and passion for this sport is almost unrivalled and if you are lucky enough to catch the national team play here make sure you're prepared for a ridiculous spectacle. We offer hotels in Bangalore to use as a base to explore this expanding city. Outside of the metropolis, two of the most spectacular attractions in Karnataka are the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Hampi and Pattadakul. Hampi is a glorious example of India's spiritual and cultural past. It is a ruined 15th Century city with some of the most remarkable temples in India and that is an impressive feat considering the competition. Meanwhile at Pattadakul is the Temple of Virupaksha which is an astonishing piece of architecture built way back in 748 AD. Both of these UNESCO sites really make you realise the spirituality of India as a whole and visiting them will enrich your experience of the country.
Karnataka is such a geographically varied region that is even possible to escape to the mountains in the area of Kodagu. Part of the Western Ghats mountain range, Kodagu is famed for its coffee and spice plantations and demonstrates yet another side of this amazing State. Bordering northern Kodagu is the area of Mysore which has become a haven for those seeking the authentic yoga experience. Mysore produces high quality sandalwood and incense sticks so if you want to take home those familiar Indian scents, this is the place to go. We have hotels in Karnataka to provide you the opportunity to appreciate this astonishing part of the country.
