A Luxury resort set amongst a sprawling coffee plantation, this is the place to stay to immerse yourself in the scenic beauty of Coorg. Villas range from fabulous to utterly indulgent and have amazing views across the local countryside – the view from our infinity pool was across a beautiful paddy field. But the real highlight of staying here is the range of activities and experiences on offer which are themed around Coorg’s unique geography and culture and designed to get you out and about and involved.
This is a place where you can escape from the rest of the world and indulge yourself in the fascinating culture of the Coorg region. As well as being an ideal place to stay during a tour of Karnataka, it is also perfect for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. The resort has 42 cottages facing the paddy fields, lake or plantation and has a village feel to it. It’s surrounded by 200 acres of coffee and spice plantations, with the River Cauvery on one side and Dubare Reserve forest on the other, ensuring seclusion and tranquility. Plenty of activities are offered to enable guests to explore and enjoy the environment, including plantation and nature walks, bird watching, coracle rides, and village visits. For a real treat, stay in a villa with its own private swimming pool and courtyard.
