Usually corporate companies arrange for a team outing every year, even the company I work for arranged a day’s trip to a resort on the outskirts of Bengaluru. It’s named Area 83.
Area 83 is located in South Bengaluru, on the Bannerghatta road. It’s just an hour’s drive from Koramangala. Road leading to this resort is not in a good condition. However once you are inside the resort you have a totally different experience.
There are so many trees and varieties of plants, for sure it is Botanist’s paradise! Also one more creature you abundantly find everywhere in the woods here is the Giant wood spider! There are hundreds of them all across the property. Some of the pics I clicked is shown below.
If you suffer from Arachnophobia this is not the place to visit 😉
Coming to the Activities in the resort, We had chosen Silver package which included Paintball, Archery Tag, Bubble Soccer, Human Foosball. ( costs 1200 per person). Once we arrived in the resort, they asked us to sign a form to declare we are responsible for our own safety. Breakfast was included and taste was average. South Indian breakfast with choice of Idli, Vada, Kesari bath was provided along with usual bread, omelette, corn flakes, cut fruits. Beverages were coffee, tea, lemon juice, watermelon juice.
If you go here on weekend you have to wait in queue for lot of the activities as they tend to overbook the resort. Do note this resort is not a huge property though it has quite big man made lake facilitating Kayaking. Kids have their own play area. Small swimming pool is also there in the resort to cool yourself during the heat of the day.
Lunch provided was reasonable with choice of Rotis, Gobi manchurian, tomato paneer, veg kolhapuri, dal, rice, rasam, curd, peas pulao, papad, salad, a chicken starter and a gravy, ice cream, kheer.
Overall it is a decent place to spend a day if your expectations is not too high. Find some more images below 🙂
