How to travel to the Resorts
They are quite remote from the city with limited/no public transport options.
You'll be better of with a private car or hired cabs to travel to all of these places. Driving is generally a pleasure for the first 60km or so till you make a diversion at the national park gate. The last 20km is typically slow and bumpy , though these narrow roads are getting maintained. If you are keen on hiring a private taxi, see Cab Rental in Mysore for the rental rates and typical packages in the city.
Make prior arrangements with your selected cab agency if you are arriving Mysore by train or by flight. It's a 2hours road travel from city to the resorts around Kabini.
