GREAT FOR

    For lovers of all things heritage, coffee and nature. Great for couples, family or a group of friends looking for a relaxing getaway in cooler climes. This place is also perfect for those who wish to know and understand more about the history of the Kodavas as well as the Coorg region.

What we love

  • This charming heritage bungalow nestled in the midst of coffee and spice plantations, skirted by man-made ponds and tree-houses that give a bird’s eye view of the region beyond, with paths that lead up to green covers and flowers that sing songs of all the bold colours, is possibly a dream come true. A place that’ll awaken the creative, romantic, poet and dreamer within you.
  • Waltz through the perfectly manicured gardens past flowers in full bloom and trees that sway in their intoxication of happiness and joy, to arrive at the vintage colonial bungalow replete with elegant decor, tasteful interiors, antique furniture, exquisite chandeliers, warm and cozy sitting areas that together create a captivating old world charm that’s bound to bewitch you.
  • The artistically furnished rooms are reminiscent of an English country home with four poster beds, fire places, frills and laces and dark wood furniture. Opt for the deluxe if you’re a couple, the family if you’re a group/ family of 4 or 5 or the whole bungalow if you’re 8 to 10 people. It’s the perfect place for that much needed vacation with family/ friends.
  • What better place to relish the traditional preparations of Coorg than at a family home of the Kodavas. Feast on the tantalising dishes - Pandi curry (pork curry), Koli curry (chicken curry), Bembala (bamboo shoot curry) traditionally served with Kadumbuttu, a type of rice dumpling and end it with scrumptious home-made finger licking good desserts - dinners lit by candlelight and served in shimmering cutlery! Wake up the next morning and start your day with bella kaapi - traditional Coorg coffee sweetened with jaggery.
  • All we’ll say about the warm, loving and incredibly hospitality is that you’ll feel like you’re leaving family behind, giving you a reason to visit again and again.

What to know

  • Cycle through the set trails around the plantations, learn where your morning cuppa of coffee comes from, go fishing at the serene pond, look out for the birds that inhabit the Western Ghat region from the tree-house, indulge in your desire to fly a micro flight, raft on the gushing river, kayak on the quiet waters, sip tea under the fruit and flowering trees, play a round of cards or pick an interesting book from the eclectic book collection - simple experiences that will leave you feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated.
  • Fruits and vegetables served to you will most likely be from the home-grown garden. You’re very likely to encounter interesting preparations, recipes of which date back a few decades! If you like something, the owner-host will be more than glad to share the secret recipes with you. You may just have to invite them when you make the dishes though.
  • The owner-hosts typically unwind and relax in the afternoon and hence lunch is not served in the bungalow. There are a host of restaurants in the main town area where you can sample different dishes while on your way to some of the sights in and around Coorg. Dinner can be served at the bungalow. Discuss your food preferences in the morning so that necessary arrangements can be made.
  • Phone networks haven’t managed to reach the heart of plantation areas in Coorg. Your connectivity may be a bit patchy unless you’re lucky to find spots with good signal strength - a blessing in disguise, we think. There is however a landline at the house should you need to connect with loved ones. WiFi is available. Feel free to check mails or surf the web. For all other information, we recommend chatting up with the owner-hosts! They’ll delight and indulge you with the legends of folklore of the region.

Awesome Things to do nearby

Coffee Plantation Trail

Ever stepped into a coffee boutique, glanced through the various brands of coffee on display, but got stumped as soon as you read the words ‘Arabica’ and ‘Robusta’ not knowing which one to pick? Probably heard of the Malabar blend ever since you had your first cup of coffee but never understood what ‘monsooned blend’ meant?

Dispel the darkness that shrouds your knowledge of coffee and how it is made with a walk into the coffee plantation.

Take a guided tour of the working coffee and spice plantation and get to know first-hand the processes involved in making that cup of coffee! If you’re lucky, you may get to see a coffee plantation in full bloom with white flowers. You could also join the plantation workers while they go about their daily business, demystifying the world of coffee to you!

Dubare Elephant Camp

​Take off to Dubare, an elephant camp where these loving creatures are trained for festivals. You can bathe them (they love being scrubbed), swim with them or ride them. While in this forest, if luck’s on your side, you may also be able to spot deer, tigers, leopards and bears as well as the avian beauties - kingfishers, woodpeckers and peacocks.

Bylakuppe - Little Tibet in India

​Nestled amongst the lush green rice paddies of South India sits the Tibetan settlement of Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement outside of Tibet.

The Golden Temple, located within the Namdroling Monastery, will take your breath away. Take off your shoes and walk up the steps into this ornate temple to stand stunned in the beauty of its three gargantuan statues of Buddha, their gold and copper-plated benevolent smiles presiding over the high-ceilinged room. The temple itself is a powerful testament of devotion, every inch adorned with detailed murals and carvings. There is an energy here that will draw you to linger, perhaps sitting on one of the blue cushions offered on the expanse of floor, inviting you to spend some time in meditation or contemplation.
