Colonial Plantation Bungalow Coorg, Karnataka
A distinctive colonial coffee plantation bungalow perched on a hillock against the backdrop of the Kodagu Hills, combining the finesse and opulence of a bygone era
Surrounded by coffee and spice plantations amidst the postcard hills of Coorg, sits a dainty 5 bedroom colonial cottage on a hillock
This regal cottage was once the home of the director of the tea estate giving you a chance to step into his shoes and experience the same kind of lifestyle for a few days
Choose between the heritage and verandah rooms, each welcoming you with an air of colonial opulence with its chic French windows, flawless wooden flooring, a private snug fireplace and Victorian furniture.
Choose the verandah room if available if you’d like to watch the mist roll over treetops in the surrounding hills while you sip on freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Exchange stories with resident guests or simply have a good time with your friends/ family in the living room or outdoors with a warm bonfire
The culinary traditions that Coorg harbours are bound to delight any food connoisseur. Here, chefs make sure the rich culinary legacy of Coorg is taken forward when they serve the exotic melange of ‘Kodava Outhana’ or traditional Coorgi
Walk over the wood panelled floors and see how the rich history of the fabled bungalow unfolds through the delicately preserved artefacts and rare collection of photographs that dot the century old walls
Watch the million stars light up the skies as the sun sets
