It was a great experience at Eco habitat with the pros clearly outweighing any cons. Listing them all down for the sake of fellow travelers - Pros: 1. Food - The food was awesome. Home cooked.

Eco habitat- as the name itself says, is all about nature and greenery. Green trees, plants, greenery around and even the pool gets greener after late evening. You might get your dreams in Green color too :) The things which make the Eco Habitiat so special are 1. Som and Chethana of course as the first point. Any of them... More

Coorg for me is Eco Habitat! Well, this was my first ever visit to Coorg. I took my parents and sister out on this escapade. We reached really early in the morning, around 5 am! Not only that Som let us check in at that hour, he had also arranged for a pick up for us from the bus stop.... More

This is a long pending review which I am writing after almost 6 months. But, memories are fresh. Som, the guy who runs this place has created this stay very nicely giving details to every aspect. Rooms are bigger, spacious, clean and have a private pool. The mattress in the room was good with neat bed rolls and blankets. The... More

Good things: A river flows nearby. The place was clean. Courteous labor. Bad Things: Owner tried to overcharge an already inflated bill. Food was ordinary but very expensive. 4 small bhajjis cost Rs. 95. Only the main food was "supposedly" unlimited - but then they say they run out of most items. (except for rice and some veg curry)... Will... More

Seems like a group assault again from the group of bikers who came in to Eco habitat assuming it is a luxury resort. Eco habitat is not a resort its a farm stay.

A decent place but definitely not value for money, overpriced for a home stay both from a lodging and boarding standpoint. The staff are courteous. Will not go back nor will recommend the place to anyone.

Location of this place is below average. It's bang on the main road to Dubbare elephant camp. The only saving grace is a river across the road from the property. Food can barely be called authentic Coorgi cuisine. Pandi curry was more like pepper pork and to top it all it is overpriced. BEWARE on ordering snacks - 1 veg... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Let me tell you about Eco Habitat. I Som and my wife Chethana quit our mainstream job in Bangalore and we opted Co-org to settle doing Vanilla farming in 2004. We understood that a lot of our like minded friends and known people were interested to come to Coorg and spend time with us during the weekends.So we decided to make and run a farm/home stay on our Organic farm. Our organic spice plantation is located very close to river Kaveri. The best part is that we get to see wild life on the opp bank of the river in the reserve forest called Dubare. It’s a treat to watch the sun rise by the river bank.We have 2 private pool Villas built on the farm. We haven't compromised on the quality of the materials used in the villas, like the spring mattress, DuPont linens, satellite TV, private pool, solar powered lights, power back up and a huge lawn area in front of the cottages.. The Villas are built from natural late-rite rocks.We have good team of cooks and we offer multiple cuisines for our clients. Not to forget even the local coorgi dishes...Food and snacks are all home cooked and served fresh to our clients based on their choice. We also tell our clients what we specialize in and what current vegetables, greens and fruits are on the farm to pick and choose from. We have lots of pets on the farm. Dogs, ducks, rabbits, horse, cows and calves. Animal and pet lovers may have a good time on the farm. We have organic coconut farm intercropped with Vanilla, Cardamom, pepper, banana and variety of grass to support our dairy farming. We have bio-gas plant which supports the kitchen fuel...Apart from the local sight seeing of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, elephant camp, Tibetan monastery, temples, hill views etc. We also conduct fishing camps, hiking, kayaking, river rafting, 4x4 jeep drives, jungle safari, quad biking, micro-lite flying etc... We also promote Agri-tourism and responsible tourism. We discuss and educate our clients about the local crops which are grown season wise and if interested we encourage them to participate real time. It may be picking coffee beans, harvesting paddy, picking pepper, manuring fields, de-weeding farm grounds, preparing bio mass for bio fuel etc. We have good stretches of hill roads, where the vehicle and human traffic is almost nill, here we encourage our clients to do cycling. We organize picnic lunch in between if they take up full day cycling. We also have very nice camping sites, by the river side, by the back waters and hill tops…We also encourage our customers to take up kayaking and river rafting during the monsoon season…We conduct river rafting in 2 rivers called Kaveri and Barapole…Around Eco Habitat, there are few tribal schools. If our clients are interested we take them to spend quality time with the kids and also contribute for a good cause.We take guests only when we are on the farm. We believe in interacting with every client of ours, understand their perception of the vacation and cater accordingly to their needs. ... more   less
