If your idea of vacationing is a leisurely stay amidst nature, Coorg is an ideal destination for you. Nestled amid hills of Western Ghats, Coorg is gifted with timeless natural beauty in the form of emerald landscapes, dense forests and acres of coffee plantations. The aromas of orange and honey fill the air. An added advantage is the pleasant weather all through the year barring summers when it gets a little hot during the day but temperatures dip significantly at night. Although Coorg has a few good resort options, you can opt for the road less travelled and choose to stay in one of the plantation trails to get a closer look at the local coffee culture of Coorg- Cottabetta Bungalow by Plantation Trails.
Cottabetta Bungalow: Luxury Redefined
One of the heritage bungalows offered by Plantation Trails, Cottabetta is now 110 years old. However, the upkeep of the house is so good that it provides an extremely luxurious stay in Coorg. Surrounded by scenic Kodagu hills it lets you completely unwind yourself and feel at peace. This tranquility will stay with you for quite some time after you are back from your vacation fully rejuvenated.
Accommodation at the bungalow
Cottabetta offers two options for accommodation- the heritage rooms and the rooms with private veranda. The bungalow also has a common living room area and a separate dining area where you can enjoy home-style meals.
Dining the Kodagu way
You can opt to savour the local Kodagu delicacies like Pandhi (pork) or Koli (Chicken) Curry, Akki Roti (Rice Roti), Kadumbuttu (Rice Dumplings), Wild Mushroom and Mango Curry or chose to have North Indian or Continental food. Cottabetta provides you the flexibility to eat Jain cusine too. In case you are looking for some more solitude and peace a visit to the Namdroling Tibet Monastery is a must.
As stated earlier, Coorg can be visited through the year. However, experiencing the monsoons in Coorg is a magical experience. You get to see the greener side of Coorg coffee plantations which are at their best during rains.
