Pilikula is a Tulu word formed by combining ‘pili’ (tiger) and ‘kula’ (pond). Local legends talk of wild, free-spirited tigers that once roamed the area and often came to a watering hole nearby. The territory around it came to be known as Pilikula. The Phalguni River Lodge, also known as Gurupura Nisargadhama Resort rests on a beautiful hillock here looking out over the calm and serene Gurupura River, the dense acacia plantations and coconut groves. Mornings here are wrapped in a quiet mist, which soon evanesces to reveal the distant hills, buried amid a trail of clouds, reaching out to the skies. Regular cloud bursts hurl down water over the entire region, leaving behind a wake of purity and fresh green everywhere.

For those who prefer a lazy, idle holiday, the Phalguni River Lodge is the right place to unwind and relax the senses. For the others who hunger for a taste of adventure, the Pilikula Nisargadhama an exquisite showcase of the natural heritage and culture of the Dakshina Kannada District of Karnataka is a worthwhile expedition. The resort is located in the village of Moodushedde, a little less than 15 km away from Mangalore, It is near enough to be accessible from the city within an hour, yet far from the hubbub of city-life and its noise. Pilikula provides an invaluable space to step out from urbanity, wind down, and rediscover.

At the Phalguni River Lodge, guests have a choice of eight twin-bed rooms. This consists of two suites, each of which has a set of two balconies, and an assortment of six deluxe rooms. Being located on a hilltop, all of the rooms at the resort provide stunning panoramic views of the lush green surroundings as well as the Gurupura River.
