It's not an everyday thing when you fall asleep listening to the buzz of the fireflies and wake up to the chirping of the birds, on a misty morning. Might sound dreamy, but that's what Coorg Wilderness Resort has in store for you! Nestled amid the deep valleys and gorgeous hills of Coorg, Karnataka - this European-themed vintage-styled property is the perfect place to unwind amidst luxury and nature.
No matter whether it's a weekend getaway that you're seeking (from Bangalore) or aiming for a staycation, your days here would be filled with sunshine and serenity, sounds of nature, lots of freshly brewed coffee, and mouth-watering local delicacies.
Accommodation at Coorg Wilderness Resort:
There are a variety of cottages available, and none would fail to live up to your expectations!
With the lush greenery surrounding every cottage of this property, each room is delicately designed to offer a cozy yet grandiose ambiance. The large bay windows and private balconies ensure nature embraces you gently yet in all its glory.
GROVE VIEW STUDIO:
These exquisitely European-style rooms are aesthetically designed to ensure every possible comfort. The huge bay windows open up to glorious views of pristine wilderness, while the luxuriously bedecked interiors ensure unrivaled indulgence. There's no air-conditioning available, since the weather in Coorg is mostly pleasant. During the monsoons and winters, this place gets considerably colder, and thus, traditionally designed electric fireplaces are there to offer adequate warmth. The bathrooms are too beautiful to be true, and have a lingering touch of luxury at every corner.
HILL VIEW STUDIO:
Gorgeously designed, these rooms open unto balconies with views of the undulating green hills of Coorg. While the rooms are extremely cozy with every ounce of luxury oozing from the corners, you would actually end up spending more time on the balcony, admiring the beauty of nature! Each studio is non-air-conditioned, and is cozily warmed with traditionally designed electric fireplaces and stylish bathrooms with thoughtfully heated floors.
Other than these, there are the Grove View Suites and Hill View Suites, meant for those who are seeking an extra-luxurious retreat.
