Hey Guys, This is Varun Shenoy .I am an ace accountant and movie buff. But my passion is travelling. I love mountains and adventure and Nature and have been to several parts of this beautiful country. To escape the scorching summer heat I decided to head for a hill station and what could have been better than Coorg which is located in Karnataka. I took a bus from Bangalore to Coorg. Bus journey is economical and it took around 5 hours for me to reach Coorg. Next was to select the right place to stay. I decided to check out a few resorts in this Kashmir of Southern India!
The first resort that I checked from the large number of Coorg Resorts was Orange County in Siddapur which has a 5 star rating. The salient features are
- Luxurious villa style accommodation
- 3 dining restaurants serving the best food
- Spa and swimming pool
- Mesmerizing smell of coffee and spice
The second was Windflower Resorts and Spa which has the following key features:
- Spread over coffee estate it has a picturesque view
Beautiful and luxurious rooms
- Infinity Pool surrounded by rosewood and teakwood trees
- Bar, lounge and restaurant facilities
The final one of the Coorg Resorts that I checked was Ambatty Greens Resort. This resort has:
- Comfortable deluxe rooms
- Several places of tourist attraction close by
- Surrounded by lush greenery
- Economical stay
- Restaurant with exotic cuisine
Though all the three resorts were wonderful I decided to check in at Ambatty Greens Resort. It was suitable for my pocket size and had all the basic amenities. It was close to several tourists hotspots. I visited Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, Chomamale Hill and St. Anne’s Church. I also went to Basavangudi Temple (Approx. 5km) and Clock Tower.
My 5 day stay in Coorg was a memorable one. As I boarded the bus to head back to Bangalore the images of this beautiful hill station lingered on in my mind. It was like watching a 70 mm cinemascope movie. The beauty of Coorg left me spellbound and speechless. It is one of the best places that I have visited so far and promised to come back to this beautiful place again!
