This gem of a resort in the sleepy coffee town of chikmagalur is really worth every penny. A stones throw (less than 30 min) from Chikamagalur bus stop is this wonderful resort covered on all sides by coffee and pepper estate. The staff are well dressed, warm, courteous and ensure you are taken care of at every point of your stay. We spend 2 nights in the wonderful property (albeit two years back-apologies for the late review) in a villa with an adjoining swimming pool. The villa has some elements of contemporary architecture with wood and stone being the prime ingredients. The "walk in" bathroom with outdoor shower is one of the best I have seen in any resort so far. The coffee that they serve in this resort is magical. We opted for the buffet spread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were absolutely pleased with the taste, quality and variety of the spread. Although there was a corporate outing in the resort at teh same time with a truck full of executives running around the resort with a license to thrill- we were not disturbed at all- goes to show how the staff took care and attention to the guests. You could ask for a complimentary trip around the coffee estate where the staff takes you around showing you how an estate is maintained. We visited the place during monsoon and it was absolutely magical. I would like to thank the staff of this resort for an unforgettable experience and would like to recommend this "understated yet excellent" property.
