The history of position machines starts in the late 1800s whenever a San Francisco technician named Charles Fey developed the first-ever physical slot unit, called the Liberty Bell. This three-reel device highlighted five symbols—horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts, and the Liberty Bell—hence its name. The Liberty Bell unit was an immediate hit, spreading to bars and saloons across the United States. Its ease and the assurance of money prizes attracted people, and the thought of the "jackpot"… Continue

Staycation at Nandi Hills – An Unique offbeat Experience near Bangalore

Nandi Hills – The name itself is enough to conjure up images of misty surroundings and breathtaking sunrises; A name familiar to almost every Bangalorean. But more than anything, Nandi Hills is the sylvan sanctuary of calm that urban souls like us run off to unwind.

Being at a get-at-able distance from the city (approx. 60 Kms), Nandi Hills has always been our go-to destination from Bangalore on weekends. But it was always for a few hours during the morning or evening. And every single time we left, our hearts craved for more. So this time we opted for a staycation at Nandi Hills and it turned out to be one of our best offbeat experiences so far.


Staycation at Nandi Hills – Who this is meant for

When we planned this staycation, we wondered what we were going to do for 3 days at Nandi Hills. Then on the day of coming back, Sush literally had to drag a reluctant me to the car. And that too with the promise that we would come back soon. That’s how much I loved being at that place. 

So if you are someone like ME or you said YES to any of the following, then this staycation is for you.

People looking for a scenic getaway, not too far from the city or too expensive.

Couples looking for an escape to spend quality time and rekindle that romance. Tell me about those misty morning walks hand in hand or watching sunset sitting next to each other.

You are too worn out due to work (or other reasons) and looking for a good place to loosen up and rejuvenate.

Where to Stay at Nandi Hills

There are a handful of resorts, campsites and home stays at the foothill of Nandi Hills. But the only option on top of the hill is Hotel Mayura Pine Top managed by KSTDC. This is where we chose to stay. The hotel is a decent property set amidst a lush surrounding and with great views all around. It has rooms in various price ranges – cottages, suite rooms and deluxe double rooms. 

We stayed in a room in the Gandhi Nilaya side which is relatively newer. These rooms come with a balcony that offers amazing views of the hills and the city. Especially at night, the twinkling city lights make for a very romantic view. These rooms come at approximately INR 4000 per night. 

There are rooms in the Nehru Nilaya side which is the older part of the property. These rooms are priced relatively lower than Gandhi Nilaya. But they do not have hill or city view. 

Things to do or experience on your staycation at Nandi Hills


A staycation at Nandi Hills is all about unwinding and spending time in the lap of nature. So here are a few things/experiences to make the best use of your time during this staycation. 

Start your morning with a gorgeous sunrise

The famed sunrise of Nandi Hills has forever seduced nature lovers. So start the day a little early to witness the beautiful sunrise. If you are lucky, then you will be able to see the sun rising above a thick layer of cotton candy clouds during the winter months. It feels like a little piece of heaven with the changing colour of the sky separated by the veil of clouds from the valley below. But cloud or no cloud, sunrise is always a freshening sight at Nandi Hills. Read More….
