A Gem in the Forest Coorg, Karnataka
A scenic resort nestled in an unexplored part of Coorg’s mystical valleys, with countless unnamed waterfalls and the earth exuding the fragrance of coffee and spices.
The nature resort is a true calling for those who would like to discover the many unaccustomed pleasures of life, being deceptively guised and to listen to sounds deep within. Highly recommended for people in love with their morning cup of coffee, and those who’d like to know all about it. This resort is a paradise for honeymooners and couples looking for a romantic getaway with all the luxuries while in the midst of nature.
In the midst of breathtaking natural beauty, surrounded by evergreen forests and fragrant coffee plantations, sits a stunning resort on a sloped hilly terrain with cottages raised on stilts perfectly in sync with the ecosystem of the pristine Western Ghats!
We’re sure you’ve fantasized about staying in a tree house at some point in your life. With gracefully designed wooden cottages, raised above the ground, under the canopy of green hued trees and surrounded by the plantations, this resort helps you actualize your little fantasy! You’ll love the adrenaline rush when you climb up to your exotic abode and we’re sure you’ll express happiness with childlike glee.
You can’t help but fall in love with the cottages. Natural light streams in beautifully through the tall glass windows while the bedroom that opens up to the east facing private wooden sun deck makes for the perfect place to recline and watch the prettiest sunrises. Bask in the shade of the canopied trees, fill your lungs with the crisp mountain air, sip on a hot cup of freshly brewed cuppa and say hakunamata! For those who’d like to take luxury and privacy to the next level, opt for jacuzzi suite that has just the panoramic views for company.
Here, you not only get to wade through the coffee plantations and learn about the cuppa that wakes up more than half the world, but also get to custom blend and roast your own coffee beans under the careful guidance of a master! If your coffee happens to be a perfect blend with the right balance, you can even sell it in the coffee boutique shop or carry it back home!
You’re the master of your hours here and the staff goes out of its way to ensure these hours are personalized as much as possible right from your food preferences to the activities you’d like to indulge in and even cooking demonstrations on Coorgi cuisine.
What to know
The region of Coorg is endowed with interesting fables and legends surrounding the living communities that create the multi-coloured fabric of Coorg. The origin of the people is unknown, thus giving rise to enthralling stories of their descent. According to one of the legends, the Indo-Greek soldiers migrated to this region and married the local people after the conquest of Alexander the Great. The theory certainly holds ground given the strong resemblence of the fair skinned and sharp featured Kodavas/ Coorgs with the Greeks. The kupya, a traditional costume worn by the men, also strongly resembles the Greek toga.
Given the lay of the land, one that was fraught with danger, wildlife and uncertainty, the Kodavas were essentially a martial clan. Their food was primarily non-vegetarian other than what grew on their agricultural land. Every meal at the resort offers at least one local Coorgi speciality. Savour the local delicacies of Pandi or port curry served with Kadumbuttu or rice dumplings or the Bembla, a bamboo shoot curry.
Given the steep gradient and terrain of the resort, children below 12 years of age are not permitted.

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!
Bird Watching in Coorg
The early morning bird watching trail is a delight to the senses and music to the ears as a myriad birds fill the morning air with their songs and calls. The Rufous Woodpecker, the Red-Whiskered Bulbul, Hill Mynas and the Jungle Babblers are some birds that belong to the Western Ghats. Your guide with tales of the jungle will be your best friend during this walk.
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.
