“Good Place”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

very good place with good facilities. we really enjoyed our stay there although we found it to be very much on the expensive side. staff were really good. safari into nagarhole national park was really thrilling. nights were pretty cold. food was also good. the greenery around the area was really nice. we really enjoyed our walks in the evenings.

Dear Guest,

Greetings to you!

While we thank you for your compliments :). It looks like you stayed at our sister resort, Orange County, Kabini, and not with us at Coorg. We do not have safaris into the Nagarahole National Park from our resort at Coorg.

An Experiential Holiday at Orange County Resorts is an all-inclusive package that covers your luxury accommodation mostly with in room pools or jacuzzis, all meals, the daily replenished mini bar, and an array of activities and amenities on offer. Our prices are also inclusive of all applicable taxes.

Warm Regards,
General Manager - Operations

It takes a long and tiring drive from Bangalore to reach, but once you are in - its blissful solitude and greenery is a real urban anti-dote. The resort is well spread out with nice walking paths, landscaped lawns and amazing range of flora n fauna. The cottages were nice and comfortable, but showing some signs of wear (like the wood in the shower and some edges of the doors and windows). Also, the porch at the rear was generally littered with dead leaves and the seats were not very clean. Otherwise the cottage was clean, well equipped and spacious.
The quality of service of the staff is outstanding. Polite to the 'P' and very welcoming. The buffet services were nice with a wide range of food to satisfy just about anyone. However, we preferred to dine at the 'Peppercorn' which served very nice grilled and barbecued dishes. The resort has some indoor sports facilities for children, conducts some excursions and also holds activity classes to keep them busy. Otherwise, there is the pool :-). If you prefer not to do any of these, there is a library where you can curl up with a nice book and freshly brewed coffee. We tried the spa facilities and were very happy with the overall experience.
Our only regret was with the front-office staff's behavior. Having prepaid for our stay two months in advance, on our arrival they were more keen to collect the extra child charges (which amounted to barely 13% of the total) without waiting for us to even finish our welcome drink or show us to our rooms! They showed the same insensitiveness by repeatedly reminding us to check-out at sharp 11 AM, which anyway we had to given our travel and flight schedule. I do hope the management picks up this bit of feedback.
Thankfully these two staff interactions did not take away the joy and comfort offered by other staff and hotel services. We would recommend the resort for the rest of the wholesome experience.

Room Tip: If you like peace, choose cottages as far away from the main restaurant. If in mood to indulge, choo...

Dear Guest,

Greetings to you! At the outset, thank you for your positive comments. We have examined your review and feedback form and discussed the same internally.

Orange County Resorts takes customer feedback very seriously. We have noted your feedback on collection of outstanding payments at check-in time and based on the same, we have decided to change this system and in the future, would be collecting the same only at the time of check-out.

We usually request for an on-time check-out in advance only at times when the resort is on full occupancy the next day. This is done through a gentle reminder the night before check-out and a 2nd gentle reminder 30 minutes before check out time. This is carried out because there is currently only a 1 hour gap before a check-out and the next check-in. Only a timely check-out can ensure that the next guest does not have to wait to check-in to his room. Once again, based on your feedback, we have decided to give a 2 hour gap between check-out and check-in so that out housekeeping team’s stress is eased to an extent.

As you are aware, the entire resort is spread out under the canopy of giant trees. This being the wintering season (season when trees shed their leaves) in Coorg, the continual falling of leaves cannot be helped. Despite our House Keeping team cleaning the sit outs thrice each day, during this season, dry leaves continue to fall throughout the day. While trees are certainly beautiful and enchanting, we hope our guests will bear with this slight natural inconvenience that happens for a few days in a year.

Warm Regards,

General Manager - Operations

Well, you gotta be there, stay there, and then believe.
I bet you'll love the people their service and feel their smile!.
We did a lot.
Namaskara! A hearty thank you. With a smile :)
One special incident you will never experience elsewhere. This is around 30 plus acre property. And obviously to maintain the greenery they must have hired locals. There were these four women, looking like tribal villagers, they were cutting grass and shrubs etc. When they saw me coming they all with a BIG smile left their sickle and scissors and folding their hands said NAMASKARA pleasingly! Just unimaginable.

Room Tip: We enjoyed room with pool overlooking the lake.

We loved the place. It was nice experience to live in with nature surrounding. Staff was excellent and offered very good service. food was excellent in all the restaurants. Lovely walking in forest and go for plantation walk. Kids activities were less but they will enjoy pool, cultural activities and some games.

Room Tip: Go for Private Pool Rooms.

I frequently travel to Orange County and have traveled to Coorg, their prime place, Kabini another excellent place and years back to Hassan which is not their property now. We - with a kid and a toddler traveled on the occasion of my birthday. Compared to the last trip traveled on the same occasion two years back, this time there have been changes like the kids area moved below to one of the restaurants. We did not like it as earlier it was very big. I had fallen sick due to the travel but was well taken care by the chef Mr Ravichandran. In total this place is the place where you can de-stress and enjoy with family - with kids.

Orange County, Coorg is very sub standard property and not worth to visit.
They claim they are 5 star property, that is subject to enquiry. There are very much masquitos and no temprature control in pool. Pools are very very dirty. They says these are natural.
These type village feel properties are available every where in very less value.
I feel a big racket of resort owner and travel agent are cheating public.
Restaurant ambience is very sub class. They are making fool and paying with us.

Dear Guest,

Greetings to you!

We would like to begin by thanking you for your feedback on Orange County, Coorg.

The Orange County Resorts’ philosophy is to provide guests an authentic ‘Spirit of the land’ experience. Keeping in line with this philosophy, Orange County, Coorg is themed ‘Coffee, Spice, and Plantation life’. We endeavor to deliver to our guests an absolutely ‘local’ or ‘true-to-the-land’ experience while they are surrounded by luxury in terms of accommodation, facilities and high standards of service. In keeping with this, the architecture, activities, etc., at our resorts are inspired by local culture.

We understand that the locally inspired theme did not appeal to you. We truly respect your individual opinion even if it is contrary to ours.

As regards the pool, considering the energy starved situation in the country and the vast amounts of energy required for operating heated pools, we have taken a conscious decision not to provide the same at the resort. Based on feedback from esteemed guests like yourself, we are constantly studying cutting edge technologies in this area and will heat our pools as soon they become socially justifiable on energy consumption. Thank you for helping us keep our carbon footprints small.

We believe the pool water appeared dirty to you. You have also had the chance to be shown the pool water in a glass to see its clarity for yourself. Our pools are meticulously maintained by an entire team dedicated to this job.

As the resort is situated in a 300 acre coffee plantation surrounded by forests, the presence of insects is virtually inevitable and mosquitoes, relatively rare. However, the rooms are insect proofed and guests are clearly advised to keep the insect proofing mesh closed in the evenings. Additionally we have taken the utmost care in carrying out pest control measures at the resort. All rooms are fitted with insect repellents that are switched on as part of the evening turndown service.

We value guest feedback and promise to consider yours to enhance the Orange County experience.

Warm Regards,

General Manager - Operations
