Once in a while, i guess all of us deserves a luxurious holiday to rejuvenate and libearte our soul with the new & high energies. "It was exactly the time to deserve the desired". Year- Dec 2014, after rigourous & tirelessly working for the the whole year, it was time to pamper ourselves.
With this we began our road trip from Bangalore to Orange County Kabini and then to Orange County Coorg(Now Evolve Back Luxury Resorts)
We started early in the morning from Bangalore and covered our distance in around 6 hours to Orange County Kabini (https://www.evolveback.com/kabini) The roads are extremely nice till Kabini but since the resort promises to take us closer to the nature, the feel starts right from the roads which will remind you of the village roads - uneven, full of dust,difficult to drive and time taking(Altough i am late in penning it so the situation might have changed, its just our experience). But i would like to mention that as soon as you will enter the resort, you will completely forget about it as they master the art of hospitaliy and the lush green resort with pure and fresh air will take your heart away.
Best time to Visit

About Orange County Kabini
As soon as we entered we knew we were in for multi dimensional luxury and a soulful experience of the nature and wildlife of Kabini.The resort is bordered on two sides with Kabini river and the designs are inspired by tribal village.
They have two kind of Huts- Pool and Jacuzzi Huts. Both the huts are beautifully designed keeping in view the close proximity with nature and usage of organic material.
The wall of the huts are made of mud resembling to the village houses. As we entered, we were welcomed with our very own swimming pool, living area, luxurious suite and a courtyard. The rooms are vibrant and beautifully decorated with traditional touch & modern day luxury. The uniqueness of the room can be felt in the paintings, wooden carved furniture and its decor which gives it an edge in elegance.
The huts are pretty much similar in terms of decor and amenities just instead of pool, you would have your very own open to sky Jacuzzi. With such luxury, I am sure one would just like to spend the time relaxing with the partner or a glass of wine and a good read.
