This is a well-designed and perfect nature resort with villas/cottages with all the comforts including private swimming pool and jacuzzi spread over a vast area full of trees and plants. It is surrounded by coffee plantations and protected forests.
From the moment you step into the reception area you are looked after by well-trained, enthusiastic and smiling members of staff.
Villas/cottages are unusually spacious, very well-maintained and spotlessly clean.
There are three restaurants to choose from: one being exclusively vegetarian and the others specializing in grilled dishes for fine dining and candlelit dinner.
The Sous Chef makes it a point to meet and greet every guest to find out what he/she likes best.
There are several organised activities starting with the bird watchers early morning
Nature Walk was led by the young but well informed and very inspirational guide who had no problem to identify each and every chirping bird on our bird watching route. Orange County is perhaps one of the best for Bird Watching in Coorg which is known as a bird watchers’ paradise in India.
We also joined the Eco Walk guided by a college lecturer turned environmentalist,who explained how the resort has introduced responsible tourism initiatives and implements a zero waste policy.
We were impressed by the mindset of the management that respects the environment, empowers the poor around the resort and promotes the heritage and culture of India, Coorg in particular. In terms of the overall ambiance, quality of care and the proactive approach,diversity of food etc, the service one receives far exceeds expectations.
