The Old Kent Estates, originally developed in the mid 1800s, is one of the earliest established coffee plantations in Southern India. William Roland Wright, a Colonel in the British Army led to the transformation of this 200-acre estate from a jungle in which big game abound to a cultivated plantation and a delightful home to his family. First constructed in 1864, the stately bungalow has been fully restored to its former charm & glory and has vignettes of the by gone colonial era and houses several rooms. As a tribute to the Wright Family, each room is fondly named after one of the family members who once inhabited within. The property has been designed keeping in mind its rich history and tradition, ensuring the conservation and preservation of the natural surroundings, within an exclusive boutique setting. Each English cottage with its own private garden provides the utmost privacy, Get pampered with the Old Kent hospitality and experience the tranquil life of a typical estate owner in British India. Read some of the reviews from our guests to find out why we have been awarded the coveted Traveller's Choice Award two years running.

This was more of a last-minute decision for a drive to Coorg and we came across Old Kent via TripAdvisor. Though there were no recent reviews, but we decided to give it a try – away from the usual hotels and resorts we pick up at Coorg. The reservation was smooth, we booked the Jacuzzi cottage directly via phone and got the email confirmation. We followed the maps and reached Old Kent around lunch time. As some reviews have pointed out in different forums, the last 1-1.5km stretch has a bit of narrow and rough roads. But overall, not much of a concern in terms of the approach. The reception and the restaurant are in a separate block near the entrance, which also has a reading room for those who are interested. Post the check in formalities, we walked down via the rocky pathway to the Jacuzzi cottage. The rooms are huge with a comfortable bed and sofa. They have Wi-Fi connectivity, and you can use the smart TV for any programs as well. You will get a cell phone with the numbers of reception, room service etc. saved in contacts. That acts as the mode of contact from both sides – either you want to call or if they have to reach you. The Jacuzzi cottage has a sit out area outside the Jacuzzi which looked great in photos. But we were highly disappointed. The area has dead plants/grass which have not been cleaned since ages. The chairs and table were full of bird droppings, and no one cared to even clean them or replace them as part of room readiness. We did bring this up during check in, but nothing really changed after that. Basically, the main highlight of having an open space as part of this cottage was disappointing as it was just not usable. You can check the photos to understand the state of cleanliness in the room. Even the walls have dirty fingerprints all around, and no one seems to bother. So, for the entire duration we had to sit inside if we are in the room, or just walk around the rocky path. They do have room service for any food orders, but after 3-4 requests to ask for the restaurant menu [which is not available in the room], I gave up and instead called and asked what they have and placed an order. We had our meals in the restaurant itself. Food is average, but you would get most of the things you would look for or on request. They keep alternating between buffet and ala carte breakfast based on the occupancy, I think. Overall, as an experience, I found it to be overpriced considering what is available (at least for the Jacuzzi cottage). The estate may be good and a welcome change from the usual places of stay but needs a lot of maintenance, and is actually Old. Till the maintenance, room cleanliness (at least was not the case for the room in which we stayed) improves, its very difficult to say it’s worth a 5-star rating and the price they charge. The other rooms may be better than what we got, but our experience was just okay.

Location and accomodation is good .Services are expensive ,they don't provide high tea which is provided in all resorts and charge 200 for small glass of coffee . Ordered Gobi Manchurian and clearly chef didn't how to prepare and was given a plate full huge Gobi where we need to cut into 4 pieces to have it and still you had to pay premium of 600 for such a gobi. Break and dinner buffet are very limited in spread but surely charged more Good resort but not value for money . You can find a better resort at the same price where you get good coverage on food

Wake up in the sound of birds , have breakfast within coffee plantation, lunch in the British era bungalow and sunset coffee with crickets chirping. One of the best place to spend the weekend. Well crafted Villas to stay with views of coffee valley. Friendly staff, thx Sampat and team, limited recreation but the new owner have some great plans(swimming pool), food needs lot of improvement not worth the prices. Overall Great stay over a couple of nights.

We went to old Kent estate in the second week of March with our 4 year old child. The estate is off the main road from Kushalnagar Madikeri, so 15 mins before the local town Madikeri. We had the cottage with tub. The cottage is quaint, and very comfortable. The bathroom is huge and has all comforts including a foot massage place. We enjoyed 3 nights there. We did the red trail walk across the plantation twice, once by ourselves. It was stunning to see the length and breadth of the place. The hospitality was very good, very sweet staff. All of them serve you with a smile on their face. The estate has a kids room and games which our child utilised to the full. From archery to telescope to playing croquet. The estate also has a movie room which we didn’t end up using but we did enjoy a game of pool. It was a beautiful experience. We will remember the people there very well. We enjoyed to the hilt.

We went there to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday. It was a lovely experience. Staying at a vintage property. Cottages are spacious and very clean! Staffs are courteous and nice! Ms. Tara was very helpful. It was those little gestures which won our heart! Highly recommend this property for a weekend getaway with your family! ❤️

This place is unbelievable. We thank Mr.Adil Haque who has introduced this place to us. We have been to this place for 2N 3D stay with all inclusive package. This is the must visit place once in a year if possible. The Room was very spacious with Jacuzzi in an open space room. Food is very excellent and you have many choices for selections in it. Celebrated my pre-birthday bash here with this team. Very excellent and well made on the surprises. Thanks to the entire team. Very impressed at their hospitality. We thank each & every staff from Ms.Pooja (Booking Team), Mr.Ashik (Front Office Manager), Mr.Prashanth (took us for Trail Walking), Ms.Tara(HouseKeeping Dept) and other staffs too. We also had a opportunity to meet and discuss many things with Mr.Sathak(Director of Old Kent). Its was a wonderful time to spend in these kind of Old british colonial place. Very impressed on their maintenance and we request them to keep up the same going forward. I recommend that those who want peace of mind, health must visit Old Kent Resorts and Spa once in lifetime. Pack your bags soon....

Accidentally we Visited Old Kent Resorts and Spa, Coorg, on 22.10.2022, as our bookings with Heritage Resorts was curtailed by one day because of some errors in online booking. We were well received by the staff from receiption and we were allotted the villa. The villa was very very spacious, may be slightly above 600 sqft. with garden of about 100 sqft. where you can enjoy your morning tea and coffee with picturesque surrounding everywhere of about 200+ Acres. In front office we were given grand welcome by the staff especially Mr. Sadek, guided us properly and invited us for a plantation walk at around 04.00 p.m. Beautiful location of the plantation and walk through through the plantation was unforgettable experience, walking through the thick forest with in and around Coffee plantation, cinamum. We also saw Rosewood tree, which is termed as costliest tree, first time in our life. The Old Kent Resorts maintenance is a class of its own. We also have an opportunity to meet the owner and his son. They were completely down to earth. Mixing with people, taking personalized care of us. Housekeeping in first class. The food they provide is very very tasty and satisfies the buds of the tongue. Staff of the Old Kent Resorts is very very cooperative. On 22.10.2022, we shifted to Old Kent Resorts and Spa as our return flight was on Sunday, 23.10.2022 night and our booking with Heritage Resorts wasn't confirmed. But our one day stay was made memorable by the owners Mr. Najumbhai and his son, Mr. Sadat Sathak as well as the staff of the Old Kent Resorts when they arranged a Anniversary cake for us and participated personally in celebration. Never before moment was celebrated on that day. I recommend that those who want peace of mind, health must visit Old Kent Resorts and Spa once in lifetime.

Heard a lot of things about Old Kent and for a vintage fanatic like me the place was a dream.With sprawling acres of coffee,pepper and tea;the estate was truly magnificent. We went during the off-season meaning heavy rains and tricky roads but you do get the place to yourselves.The estate provides a serene view and silence that paired with a cup of house-grown coffee or tea is purely bliss.The rooms...have no words cause they were beautiful and the bathroom tied the knot on the amazing 2 day experience at the Kent
