About Us

The Hidden Valley is owned and managed by Aranha Homes, a hospitality company based in Bangalore, Karnataka .

Established in the year 2000, Aranha Homes operates a chain of professionally managed serviced apartments, guesthouses and conferencing facilities in Bangalore.

The idea of ‘feel at home’ guest houses or home-stays was rather new in the earlier years. People patronised hotels which were expensive and to a large extent highly commercialized. It was an uphill task to rope in guests from the corporate sector and to make them enjoy the comfort and cuisine of a privately run serviced apartments. Aranha Homes, however, have succeeded beyond all reasonable expectations in playing host to a large number of guests and visitors. The secret of their success lies mainly in their utmost courtesy, comfort and hospitality. Within a short span of time they have set up seven properties with over 50 rooms to address the hospitality needs of visitors to the city.

Now in their network lies The Hidden Valley, a cozy homestay in the town of Handi in the Chikmagalur Taluk in their very own coffee plantation.

Handi in the Chikmagalur Taluk is a small town on the State highway between Chikmagalur and Mudigere. It is well known in the Chikmagalur area for plantation nurseries and the best yielding coffee estates. The town is also known for its Sunday ‘Shandy’ which is the local market day where hundreds gather to do their weekly shopping. This town has everything you need for day to day living. Car hire services are also available here.
