We took a flight to Bangalore and had to drive to the resort from there. It was a nearly 7-hour long journey, and the absence of even a single 'Old Kent' signboard on the way made us quite worried. However, we finally got to the resort and found that it is really beautiful. There are only 8 rooms or chalets, so it is not very populated, which is excellent for relaxation. The food was phenomenal. The chef Deepak would cook anything we wanted at any time and his food was really good. The staff made us feel at home and welcome, especially Mr. Manoj, the manager. The view was spectacular, and the trekking in the hills around the resort was one of the most enjoyable experiences in the trip. There was also a theater with a selection of movies to watch, a game room with board games and foosball, and a pool table (where my son spent most of his time). This is an excellent resort and I recommend it to everyone planning a trip to Coorg.
