What we love
- Surrounded by lush green and aromatic spice and coffee plantation, sits a beautiful bungalow that’s been created with much love by the owner couple who live on and manage the estate. Notice the traditional doors, windows and pillars that have been sourced from old heritage homes of Karnataka and restored painstakingly over a period of time.
- Dip your feet in the babbling brook that carves it’s way through the plantations, watch out for the colourful birds that perch themselves on the myriad fruit trees or play hide and seek with the brightly coloured butterflies that flutter around bold coloured flowers. This is the place to experience nature at close quarters while unraveling the some of the best local experiences that shroud Coorg.
- Each bedroom, immaculately clean and well maintained, has been done up tastefully. Choose the basic superior and special executive rooms if you’d like more space in your room, else the standard executive rooms are just great too. Couples looking for a bit of privacy and a private sit out area could opt for the special executive rooms.
- We loved lounging around and sipping on a freshly brewed cup of coffee at the verandah just watching the greens and listening to the sounds of nature.
What to know
- This traditional coffee estate is not only the perfect place to explore the wild forests that provide the perfect shade for coffee beans to grow, pepper vines, spice plantations and the tranquil vistas of the coffee estate but also the place where one can lead the interesting life of a coffee planter. While here, you can go through the a bean to cup coffee plantation tour and learn the difference between Arabica, Robusta and other variants of coffee!
- Enjoy the culinary traditions that Coorg harbours when you savour the exotic melange of ‘Kodava Outhana’ or traditional Coorgi meal. For the meat lovers, we recommend the Pandi curry (pork curry) or the Koli (chicken curry) traditionally served with Kadumbuttu, a type of rice dumplings. At other times, you can enjoy the fares of Indian and Continental with most ingredient freshly picked from the estate. We also recommend trying the interesting Kachampuli, a Coorgi vinegar that has anti-cholesterol and other medicinal properties and is also believed to keep the fat in check! All that pork may not be so harmful after all :)
- For days when you’d just like to stay in, there’s a host of board games that you could play or pick a book of your interest from the cosy library.
- WiFi is available in the common areas if you’d like to check mails or browse.
