The grounds are well maintained with clean grass gardens and myriad flowers in bloom – pink gladiolus, blue carnations, yellow and orange marigolds, white hibiscuses and red roses. The small pond is home to a family of ducks. “The resort is a plastic free zone and tries to maintain a sustainable ecosystem. We have an upper limit of 26 visiting guests at any point in time,” says Premnath.
We start on an off-road adventure ride at 4 pm. The Mahindra Jeep rolls ahead on unfamiliar terrain. We see a small waterfall, stroll through the Kadamane Tea Estates and watch the sun set into the Western Ghats. We are back in the resort at 6.45 pm for some hot tea and snacks after a thrilling off-road return trip.
