Welcome to the country where lush green plantations fill miles of open land, where sprawling historical ruins hold hidden secrets, where entrancing temples beckon from dynasties of yore – welcome to Coffee Country!

The Destination

When you drive into Chikmagalur, charming Coffee Country your mind wanders back a few hundred years or more, to the story that started it all. When Saint Baba Budan, brought home, in the folds of his robe, a handful of coffee beans from Mocha in Yemen, and planted them in the hills around Chikmagalur. The Baba Budan hills are now vibrant with lush coffee plantations, white blossoms peeking out – home to India’s first, and arguably best coffee.
Your mind, like you, will do a lot of wandering. Because you are here to leave the hectic pace of your life behind. You will make your way up inspiring trails, amble through historical splendours, walk under canopies of green. You will walk through an open network of verandahs in the resort, with water lapping beside you, while the high-beamed ceilings take you back to the days of yore. You will hear your voice echo across the hills,

sip coffee filtered like nowhere else in the world, and lie back – and wish you never had to leave.


The life of the planters, about which books have been written. The estates spanning out for miles around, the waft of coffee on the breeze, the twitter of birdsong – and the peace!

Estate Villa – Pool

Walk into your single-floored villa, with the undulating plantations as your back garden. Large glass doors and windows allow the sunshine to slant into your subtly sophisticated living area, straight out to your private pool.

The lord of all you behold. Each elegantly furnished two-tiered villa overlooks an expanse of trees, ferns, plantations and paddy fields.

The Residence

The water-lined walkway leads, like a red carpet, to the Residence. Exclusive, expansive – and enchanting. Immaculately furnished on a scale second to none. Two designer bedrooms, separate living and dining spaces, and a large pool to call your own. Walled off from the world beyond. Life awaits your orders.
