This was our first getaway together as a couple after our big fat Indian wedding, and this place offered exactly what we needed: - complete privacy without compromising on luxury, - lots & lots of pampering (in terms of food and services), - and detoxing from the world with freshly pressed coffee. Unlike other resorts, Old Kent is not bustling...

I used to believe that a rustic, leather-and-wood, cottage-like place nestled deep in the folds of greenery was one found in the pages of an old book- easy to dream of but simply unreal. Old Kent estates took a sizable amount of pride in proving me wrong. The very location has a prominent sense of old world charm that is...

A wonderful property, no doubt. Tucked away, the drive into the property gives a feel of the escape we are making from daily nuances of regular living. But then again, this is what many of the properties offer in and around (the already serene) Coorg. Also worth noting is that most of Coorg is already in the hands of wonderful...

Located about 10mins from Madkeri, Old Kent is true gem of a place. Located in a coffe plantation, you feel yourself in the lap of nature from the very moment you reach. Staff is courteous, sophisticated and extremely well trained. Food (sometimes in set menu depending on the resort occupancy) is lip smaking whether it the local cuisine or Continental....

Lovely property with awesome hospitality. The food was good as well. The staff were extremely courteous. Keep an eye out for birds. You will spot quite a few. :) The rooms were good overall, but had a slightly damp feel to them. Not a deal breaker though.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
