If you're considering whether to pick Villa Urvinkhan for your vacation/getaway, here's what you need to do right now: Book a room and just.. Go.

This one is a total no-brainer. We had our apprehensions as well as we made our way up the mud road. But once this gorgeous place looms into view... every single nagging doubt will be wiped straight off and you will forget the hectic roads, the deadlines, all your tensions and sink into the wonderful, luxurious and brilliant dream that is Villa Urvinkhan.

Clean, well maintained et al are for other residences, this place was sublime. Our party of five had two rooms in a cottage with a breath-taking view, gorgeous furniture and a bathroom I could happily spend a couple of lifetimes in. All the other facilities provided, specifically the infinity pool overlooking a scene of such beauty and grandeur are so wonderful... that all you are reduced to are a series of sighs. By the time we had the food, the fact that it was excellent was not even a surprise or a thing of wonder anymore.

There are several activities: cycling, fishing, trekking, bird watching and the management is ever vigilant to the needs of its guests. Special mention goes to Shantalakshmi who was the perfect host and ensured that our stay was nothing short of brilliant. Here, you don't feel as though you're some nameless entity in a hotel where the waiters mechanically smile at you, at Villa Urvinkhan you get the warmth of a homestay coupled with luxury, decadence AND it's situated bang in the middle of one of the most beautiful areas I have ever seen..

Please note that this review or pictures can in no way convey just how wonderful this place is. I am certain that I've missed a hundred little things, all of which made the whole so much greater and awesomer than its parts. We started missing this place the second we drove out of the estate. I am already planning my second (during the monsoons) and third (winter) to this place.

What are you waiting for? Go go go!!!!!

Having heard of this place just a few days before the trip, all I did was google this place and man, what a sight! Their site which shows the infinity pool overlooking the lush rolling mountains is the bare truth and nothing else. This place is pure paradise. We were here for a weekend trip, joining 3 other couples and a few more friends who were already there a few days before us. Having booked all the cottages, we had the place for ourselves, which led to us being pampered in every way.

We left from Bangalore and it took us 5hrs to reach this place as we drove almost non-stop. The drive to the villas through the coffee estate envelopes you to hear nothing other than peace. On arriving, and walking inside, the view is breathtaking. The rooms are amazingly done, each one different from the other as well. Comfy beds, huge bathrooms and a shower area just with nature if you please, is present as well. :D It takes a bit of time for hot water to pour out your shower, but thats a small thing compared to the rest. The swimming pool will always be the highlight of our stay as you can just laze and stare at the mountains from the other end. Some of our friends went fishing as well and kids included had fun.

The food was delicious, lovely variety in both veg as well as non-veg and Swetha is a master at desserts! Every dessert I had over that weekend was heaven. Overall, every need was taken care while we were there. Swetha and Sunil are the ideal hosts who make you feel at home.

I'd go back anyday for sure, just for the whole experience all over again. Loved it and will always remember it.

Room Tip: The rooms below and a little away from the swimming pool are wonderfully quiet and serene.

I was there with 3 kids and this was just one of those where it truly felt like a vacation. The squabbling kids had turned into excited kids - they wanted to explore the estate, swim in the wonderful infinity pool or just chill playing games in the main house.

Shweta and Sunil have to be hands down the best hosts - Sunil took them fishing and the kids actually all caught fish which they were so excited by. Shweta personally supervises the cooking and the desserts she makes are to die for! They were so friendly and nice it was like we were visiting a friend. There being only 5 cottages, it makes for a nice cozy holiday almost like your own estate house.

They were so good with everything and Sanjana was so helpful with the bookings and co-ordination. I am a very picky person - had nothing to pick at all this time :) FABULOUS is all I have to say!

On a sunny Thursday afternoon, Divya and I were yet to decide if we had to spend our weekend at B'lore or somewhere far from the maddening crowd. A quick Google search and a few hours from then, we found ourselves on our way to savor our amazing discovery-Villa Unrvinkhan. While we were impressed by the online pics, I must admit, this place is much more beautiful than in pictures; when you sit in those anqtiue chairs reading a book, when you peep into the valley with your body immersed in the clean pool, with numerous birds flying over you when you swim. A perfect example of an ideal weekend.
Shantha makes a wonderful host. A special mention to the Kitchen staff. How can one consistently make such delicious food? I was tripping on food and the ambiance. Always in i-want-to-eat-more-but-i-am-too-full mode. While Sunil and Shwetha (owners) make me envious, kudos to them for making Urvinkhan happen. Impeccably kept, beautifully crafted, the place offers something to every age and kind. I can't wait to go back there and you (the readers) shouldn't either! Pack your bags and storm off to this adorable abode!

Room Tip: I love room no 5.

Well my family and my American friend had the good fortune to stay in Villa Urvinkhan during Easter weekend. It's a place that takes your breath away....pristine, divine and totally at peace with nature. The rooms were fabulous and the service was excellent. Sunil designed the whole place himself and it shows! The entire ambience and the infinity pool are value for money. Food is another big surprise...we had sumptuous, home cooked food which tasted heavenly - not to mention Shweta's famous mango cheesecake. We had a great time and would strongly recommend the stay - From Shobhana, Tilak and Marty
