Elusively shy, pristinely private and extremely organic at heart, Taj Coorg Resort and Spa promises the next Eden. Perched at 5000 ft above sea level and surrounded by 180 acres of a living and breathing rainforest, it is no short of a fairytale land. Just 7 kms from Madikeri town, yet supremely isolated and canopied as far as the eye can see, the property shelters no less than 300 odd species of flora.
Featuring panoramic vistas from every villa, especially the cliff edge Premium Villas spread over 1400 sqft with a private fireplace, the resort offers 62 Villas spread over three categories. However the stunning Presidential Nirvana suite with three bedrooms spread over an area of 9000 sqft along with a private plunge pool is an easy win for sustainable luxury.
With an eclectic range of restaurants to offer to its guests, food is another highlight of the property. Be sure to savour some traditional coorg cuisine at Nellaki, a sumptuous international fare at Ferntree , a dose of health at Dew, all washed down by exquisite coffee cocktails from the Hive Bar.
The Taj Jiva Spa is said to be the most scenic here. Spread over 30,000 sqft with glass walls overlooking endless valleys and the infinity pool it is a beautiful set to nourish and delight all your senses. With a total of two infinity pools, one open air theatre, one conservatory, two lakes, waterfalls, bridges and a jaw dropping sky lounge cum reception area, everything encompasses luxury at its best, yet retaining an extremely organic and natural tone to it.
Be sure to test your hiking skills with the Nishani hike, a 3 kms uphill walk straight through dense forests and grasslands leading to the top of the hill until you breathe in clouds.
Apart from this, there are several activities to he indulged in, from pottery and zip line to numerous forest hikes and a extensive property tour explaining the flora, fauna, history and culture of Coorg.
Cocooned in a rainforest amidst the western ghats for a few days is the perfect balm for the urban soul. Taj Coorg Resort and Spa is the perfect nest for the cosmopolitan wanderlust seeking new vistas with a dash of smart luxury!
