Awesome is the word. Great Location, Comfort Stay, Excellent Service, Delicious Food and Serene Atmosphere.
Club Mahindra is located in Kodagu Valley, Madikeri District, Coorg. It is just 5 kilometers away from the Main Town Market and takes 10 minutes to reach to the resort. Though the road to the resort is isolated but it is easily accessible from the town. Auto Rickshaws are available to and fro from the resort and they charge Rs.70 for one way. It’s better to avoid travel after sunset.
How to Reach:
Well most of the websites recommend that Mangalore is the nearest airport. Yes it is indeed as its just about 140 Kms and one expects to reach there in 3- 3-1/2 Hours of time. But that’s a theoretical figure. Practically it takes 5-1/2 – 6 Hours. The route is Mangalore Airport- Puttur – Sullia – Madikeri (Coorg). But the road from Puttur – Sullia is pathetic/worse. You have pot holes every few meters that makes your journey terrible. You may end up with a severe back pain. I would rather recommend the Bangalore - Mysore - Kushalanagar – Madikeri (Coorg) which is 260 Kms but Bangalore-Mysore being a National highway you may not feel the pain and the journey should be comfortable. Travel time will be around 6-7 Hours. So it is almost the same time as it takes from Mangalore Airport.
Why only resorts or hotels in Madikeri but not in Virajpet or Kushalanagar?
For me personally I recommend Madikeri. The choice is yours. They are also a part of Coorg but these may not be the center to visit all the site-seeing places. Abby Falls, Shooting Points, Raja’s Seat, Temples, etc. are mostly located in the Madikeri District. Virajpet/Kushalanagar is around 1 hour journey from the Madikeri Town. So rather than traversing from/to Madikeri, it is advantageous to stay in Madikeri itself. Furthermore SHOPPING in the Madikeri town is damn cheap.
Why Club Mahindra?
As a starter even I reviewed many websites before short listing it. As I was traveling with my family and wanted to stay close by to the town, I was looking out for a hotel that will provide me with a comfortable stay and manageable food. After much researching I short listed on Coorg International / Club Mahindra.
I decided to go with Club Mahindra as it was a resort with many options as compared to Coorg International. And I was very happy with my selection.
I made my booking via www.makemytrip.com as they provided me a better deal than the Club Mahindra Folks. I got a CP deal for Rs.4600/- per day that included breakfast.
About the Room:
- A Double bed with a balcony sit-out that overlooks the lush green trees inside the resort.
- They provide you with a Coffee-Maker with Sugar, Coffee and Tea Bags.
- They have a wooden Cupboard with hangers but no Iron.
- The bathrooms do have 2 Towels, Liquid Soap and a Hair Dryer.
Delicious, tasty and finger-licking food. It’s HALAL. They have 3 different restaurants:
1. Coffee Blossoms : Only Alacarte
2. Green Cardamom: Mostly Buffet. Definitely recommend this.
Breakfast: Buffet: A lavish spread-out of South and North Indian cuisines. 8AM – 10:30 AM Lunch: Buffet. As most of the guests go out for site-seeing, not many dishes but should be enough.
Dinner: Buffet. Again a huge and tasty offering.
3. Mercara: This restaurant offer strict vegetarian and Jain cuisine.
If you opted for the CP Plan that includes only complimentary breakfast then you may have to shell out around Rs. 675/- per person per meal. So if you are a couple then the total cost per day would be as follows:
Room Rent with Complimentary Breakfast : 4700
Lunch for Two : 1300
Dinner for Two : 1300
Total per Day : 7300
You may optionally skip you Lunch in case you are on a site-seeing. Visit www.makemytrip.com to see if they offer any better deals that includes all the meals.
Activities & Site-Seeing
The resort people arrange group tours and individual tours as well depending on your interests. For E.g.

6. Madikeri Local Tour

Every tour has a specific price and will be included in the hotel bills. Their Activity Center will provide you more information on each of the tour.
They also have a activity center where you can play indoor games and they also arrange specific activities for adults, kids and aged people.
A great place to stay where you can sit, relax and enjoy. At the end their sales team will try to sell out the Club Mahindra membership package. So be aware of it and if you want to go for it All the best.
