The Amanvana Spa Resort in Coorg is a mesmerizing dreamland. Inspired by the children's book, Alice in the Wonderland, you'll find yourself in nooks and corners that bring back fragments of your childhood memory.

I stayed here for just 2 nights and 3 days, but got the much needed #luxurygetaway I had hoped for. If you're planning a quick trip to Coorg, book away at the Amanvana Resort with no second thoughts.

Here's a quick glimpse of my two blissful days amongst lush nature at Amanvana.

The cozy porch where I spent half my day glued to my copy of 'Americanah'

The show-stealer & my heart-stealer. Sunroof bathroom with a mosaic bathtub. Now, this is what you call bathroom goals!

Look what I found while exploring the resort! A tributary of River Kaveri going right through the resort.

What's a vacation without yoga? They have complimentary yoga classes and though I was the only one who woke up at 6 and came for it, well worth the effort!

Anyone up for living their Bollywood dreams? I was! Spent some lazy time swinging and brushing my feet against the mucky water. Mind you, it's not as easy as actresses make them look!

Coorg was way too cold for me to dive into the pool, but maybe when I visit again in the summers I can give it a try. It was clean and well kept though! And the restaurant faces the pool. so sip your coffee and gaze at the lapis lazuli water.

Remember the red post box from Alice in the Wonderland? Found it here! Just the place for a tea party I'd say.

This resort is a proud repository of unique flora and fauna. They even have a walk that takes you through all the fascinating trees, shrubs etc. Highly recommend it!

A quick few traveler tips:

This resort is in Kushalnagar which is at the base of Coorg. It is not on the hills, so if you intend to explore Coorg, make sure you have transport arranged to take you around

The food here is pretty decent, but I'd suggest venturing out to the tiny restaurants around Coorg that serves pandhi curry, akki roti etc.

While I didn't try the spa, my parents did and said it was worth the money. Try it and let me know!

The plus points of staying here is that the Nisargadhama and Namdroling Monastery is very close by. While the Nisargadhama is right next door, the Monastery is a 3 km drive away.
