“5th visit; I hope not the last!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Orange County has been an annual treat whilst working in India, and will be one of the things we shall miss most. Their attention to detail is immaculate, and although there have been many alterations over the years they have always been sensitive to the environment, which is the real focus. The peace and beauty of the coffee plantation and all they have produced for the resort is beyond compare. The kindness, sincerity and generosity of the people we look forward to meeting year after year are remarkable.
The experiences on offer will remain as treasured memories of opportunities to appreciate birds, animals and flora - what a privilege to walk in the Dubare forest and witness secret life of elephants, monkeys, leopards; learn about tribes' symbiotic existence with all that grows and lives all around them.
Orange County revitalises the soul and body; of all we have visited in Coorg and elsewhere in India it remains the highlight.

This is the place to stay in Coorg. The staff are very friendly and the service is absolutely superb, particularly in restaurants an activities. Special mention is needed of H.R. Ganesh, Naturalist, for his knowledge and enthusiasm on the walking tours. Food is great in all the three restaurants, particularly Plantain. Do the bird-watching, Village walk and the Plantation tour - all excellent.

I visited Orange County, Coorg for 4 days and 4 nights on my honeymoon. It was a wonderful experience. The service was more than excellent. Everyone was so warm and helpful that we were thoroughly spoilt!

The setting of the resort is a huge coffee plantation on the banks of the Kaveri. It is truly beautiful, and a perfect place to take a leisurely walk at any time. The coracle rides, plantation walks and cultural shows are all perfect ways to spend time outdoors.

The food was also really great. In particular, their specialty romantic dinner at the Pepper Corn restaurant was wonderful. The server went out of his way to make it special by even bringing us a cake on the house with the words "Happy married life!" written in icing.

Other than that the vaidyashala and private swimming pools in each cottage are a great way to relax and soak in luxury. I'd recommend this place to anyone despite the hole it burns in your pocket.

I had gone to Orange County for my honeymoon for which i wanted the best experience and as mentioned in my subject i had the best experience.To start from the day i started my discussions for planning the trip to Orange county to the time i reached back to my destination i received very good service. The stay and food was one of the best i had with many surprise elements.
The commitment of staff members was really touching in every aspect. The best part of my visit was tree top candle light dining where we had the opportunity to wear the traditional Coorgi costume and thoroughly enjoy the romantic setting.

It was a memorable experience and look forward to visit again.

I had been here for my honeymoon and was there for 5D 4N. First 2 nights I was at Lily Pool Cottage (LPC 405). A mix of modern & vintage interiors. Pool was small and cozy with plantation view. Entire cottage was super clean. Bathroom were very huge and spacious and absolutely hygienic. A very cozy and romantic setting in side the room. The last 2 nights I was at Private Pool Villa (PPV 705), it was twice the size of LPC. Larger rooms and pool area. Bathroom was a lil cluttered though. Being the honeymoon couple the housekeeping people decorated bedroom & bathroom beautifully with flowers. In all the accomodation was whey above than my expectation.

Coming down to food and hospitality. I am a strict jain which is an issue at lot of hotels I have visited, but here at OC Coorg it was the opposite. I was served every kind of cuisine jain. Everything I requested was served to me. The staff and the chef were always there for serving me their best dishes and enhancing my stay experience. Breakfast was the highlight for 5 days as South-Indian Cuisine is my personal favorite. Atleast 10 desserts were there to make hog on both for lunch as well as dinner. Saturday night candlelight dinner was a surprise and was well organised. All 3 restaurants were amazing but Granary being my fav as all cuisines were available there. A special cake and complimentary mocktails were also offered to us as a part of candlelight dinner.

The staff is superbly trained and super courteous to make your stay at OC even awesomer. OC defines and personifies the word Hospitality. I would rather consider their hospitality as pampering :-)

Things you shouldn't miss at OC:
Birding Sessions in the Morning
Coracle Ride
An evening coffee cup at their Library
A dip in the infinity pool
Lakeside Dining at Pepper Corn

The overall experience was awesome! We needed this relaxing break. The room we chose was the private pool villa, which was really good, traditional design. Loved the sound of the birds to which we woke up each morning.
The food is one of the things to comment about. All the restaurants were really good. The choice was awesome.
I would really love to go back again. The total ambience of the resort is too good
The activities available are also good, but we didn't participate in it much, bcoz what we wanted was total relaxation. We just went for the coracle ride which was excellent experience.
The staff are really good, always greeting and ready to help you out, always with a smile.

Stay was very pleasent. Resort is simply awesome. Hospitality was too good. Food was rather ok but they had multiple options for the same. Room service was excellent. Activities organised by them were excellent. Had many different kind of activities although a few activities seemed the same. Overall awesome stay.
