we visited this place in the first week of Sept 2016 with friends, As we reached the bungalow a bit late in the night it was difficult to locate (GPS is of no use!) The place is pretty comfortable with large rooms and attached bathrooms. Clean and spacious. The gardens are well maintained and the sound of birds chirping feels...

Was there last week.. Great stay. Booked early via website. Very courteous staff. Great rooms & nostalgia of "Raj" keeps haunting you.. You can feel the warmth of "Tatas" everywhere.. The mud road leading to the bunglow is scary but worth it. A good tyre on car or even better a CUV is recommended. Once u r there stay there...

This is an excellent property for an outing with family/ friends. We all (almost senior citizens) enjoyed our three nights stay at this property and were fully rejuvenated. We had an option of staying at a 5 star property in the area with private pool. After visiting this 5 star property, we all realized that the natural surroundings of this...

The Arabidacool Bunglow run by the Tata Coffee led Plantation Trails is one of the most beautiful properties in town- there are 4 rooms in the bungalow - they are huge in every sense of the word- the bungalow is ideal for a group of 8 people- but this is ideal for people looking for solace, peace & good sleep....

We stayed here from 10th through 13th July, 2016. I booked Heritage room with complimentary breakfast. The room is spacious with furniture from a bygone era.

Wonderful place tucked deep inside coffee plantation. The road from Chikmagulur to the coffee plantation is very picturesque. I went with my family and we had a Toyota Etios car. I could see the coffee beans hanging from the trees on both sides of the road. Met the Tata Coffee Managers wife. She was an excellent host. Treated us with...

Thoroughly impressed by the way the bungalow has been maintained. If you are expecting resort or hotel experience, then Arabidacool is not a place for you. One can book the stay through Tata Plantation Trails online or call the Tata Coffee's Mylemoney Estate directly at +91 8262 262045 Tip- sometimes Plantation Trail may not show availability of rooms.

We stayed at the bungalow for 3 nights and had a great time. The food is excellent though prices are a little on the higher side . It didn't matter because my 4 year old is a poor eater so the cook would make anything we wanted. The staff is very friendly and we had the entire bungalow to ourselves...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Indulge in the frills and fancies of plantation life near the misty hills of Chikmagalur at the Arabidacool Bungalow. Built in 1914, the sprawling property is the perfect retreat from the chaos of city life. Situated close to Baba Budan Giri, the birthplace of Indian Arabica coffee, there could be no better place to truly enjoy the Bean to Cup coffee tour. At 4000 feet above sea level, it's your chance to take a walk in the clouds. Our guests have a choice between Heritage and Luxury rooms. All rooms have en suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, TV and splendid views. The bungalow has a common living room as well as a dining room, where you can dine in true plantation style. We serves delicious and healthy local cuisine as well as North Indian, Continental and Jain food - all with that special home-made touch! ... more   less
