An idyllic weekend at Coorg

10 07 2006

Got a chance to stay at the Orange County resort at Coorg this weekend. This sleepy 120 acre resort is probably one of the best places around, to enjoy a tranquil holiday amidst nature. The rooms are exorbitantly priced, but if you have the money it is totally worthwhile for the experience that the place ensures.

We stayed at Kodagu styled cottages, which looked like old Kerala houses to me. The cottages are very tastefully done, giving ample privacy and sunlight. There was a very warm and cosy feeling at the cottage that I really liked. They have taken quite a bit of effort to make the place unintrusive, eco-friendly. You find an occasional noise-free, pollution-free battery operated buggy carrying luggage or people around the huge campus.

Lazing at a hammock.

The cottage opened into a private pool! Apart from the common swimming pool, some of the cottages had a private swimming pool.

The water in the private pool looked even more inviting at night, with the lamps on.

On the banks of overflowing Cauvery river, nearby.

A certain somebody was missed. Blame the weather. Blame the rain. Blame the cosy cottage.

Nice pictures. “The rooms are exorbitantly priced” -> any hints on how expensive it is? Any phone no or email contact for booking a weekend there?
