Whenever I think of Coorg, a vision of blue hills and emerald landscapes comes to mind; I see myself amidst evergreen forests, going on treks, watching elephants in their natural surroundings while sipping on some delicious coffee.

Ever since I visited the place last year, I have been yearning to go back. So when a friend told me about this stunning resort in the middle of a coffee plantation in Coorg, I was elated; there can be no better start to spring than a tropical vacation. A quick look at the resort's website showed me that it was the perfect place to take my parents for a relaxing vacation that had been long overdue.
