Kabbe Holidays
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We (a couple and our friend) visited Kabbe during January 2013 - it was a wonderful experience for all of us courtesy the hospitality extended to us by Dilp and Vidya. Some highlights below:
Stay - The hallmark of homestays, you experience the joys of living with the hosts. The cottages are comfortable and well equipped. The verandahs attached to each cottage are ideal for curling up with a cup of tea/coffee and your favourite book. What makes the spot ideal are the beautiful flowers which Vidya personally tends to. I enjoyed a pleasant afternoon with a book, surrounded by flitting butterflies, the lady slippers and the canna which were in full bloom.
Food - Vidya runs an excellent kitchen. Everything (including the jam for breakfast) is fresh and homemade. You will get a mix of local food (we loved the Akki roti and egg bhurji combo, and our friend gorged on the pandhi curry) and food from other parts of India (outstanding dal/chola/lentils). Excellent though the food is, keep enough space for the homemade desserts. The apple crumble and fruit pudding were truly delicious. Since our friend was visiting from overseas, Vidya specially checked and catered to his cuisine and spice preferences.
Hospitality - Kabbe stands out for the warm hospitality of the hosts. Within the space of our first cups of tea and brownies, we became good friends. Be it escorting us up on the hills, driving us to the waterfalls, discovering the taddies in the sunlit pools - Dilip does it all with elan. We appreciated the trip to his ancestral home which was a slice out of his family history and the walk around his plantation. Quiz him on everything you always wanted to know about coffee growing, you will not be disappointed.

Strongly recommend Kabbe Hills for a visit - it is couple/friends/family friendly. Get ready for a great weekend of sunshine, good food, mild exercise to work off the excesses, making new friends and sharing stories and laughter.

My title says it all! :-) Me, my wife & my 2 other friends visited Kabbe Holidays based on the reviews online & found the experience fabulous! Cottages here are excellent amidst complete greenery & coffee plantations. If you are looking forward for a total relaxation, this is the right place! What was even more exciting was our early morning walk to the Kabbe hills which is merely half a km from the cottage. Enjoyed the simple trek & exotic scenic beauty. Photographers? Don't miss your SLRs, here is the right spot!! BTW, I happened to meet 2 new friends Dilip & Vidya whose hospitality was excellent :-) Overall, a perfect place.

If You ever wish to run away from the hectic urban life, to give your mind and soul the ultimate peace, to bewitch your senses with the beauty of nature, Kabbe shall offer you the best of any tourist spot in India could!!!

It becomes all the more special if you are with your soulmate @ K@bbe as it gves you opportunity to be on the top of the Hill all alone able to view the entire world from top with sounds of birds chirping all around you and the beautiful sun rise!!

The best part of Kabbe is hospitality which is so deeply and whole heartedly given that you never feel like being away from home. Dilip & Vidya - the ultimate couple - treat you as their own family member and a sip of tea just outside your cottage makes you feel like a celebrity!!

The delicacies with which you are served at Kabbe are the best!! Even North Indian food prepared @ Kabbe is better than that we have in North!!

Kabbe remains my perfect destination to behold my loved one in my arms alone on the top and share the most beautiful moments of life with one another!!

I miss you Dilip, Vidya & Kabbe...

Would soon be there again...

Hospitality is often mis-construed as welcome drinks and a queue of waiters waiting to serve all the time..Warmth is sometimes present, many times it is cold in most places. Here at Kabbe Holidays, true meaning of hospitality can be explored with the owner Dileep willing to walk that extra mile to convert hospitality into a warmth of an extended family member..

We spent 2N/3D at Kabbe and every minute was worth the experience. Dileep was there to trek with us on nearby hills, took us to his family's ancestral home, got food prepared that we would like as he would like us to eat - some of the regional specialities..

We strongly recommend Kabbe holidays to anyone and everyone who looks forward to exploring Coorg like never before. Kabbe makes it near perfect - infact quite a perfect destination..

Kabbe holidays is a great place to relax, unwind and have fun at the same time. We visited there as a group of 6 adults and 4 kids and stayed in the deluxe cottages and rooms. Accomodation is very well maintained and food is excellent. Kids simply loved sleeping on the mezzanine bed in the cottages. Dilip and Vidya are great hosts and ensured that we all had a good time.Visit to Chelavara falls, walk around the coffee estate and the relaxing foot massage are my highlights of the trip! If I ever plan a trip to Coorg again, Kabbe Holidays will be my preferred place to stay!

What a beautiful place! The deluxe rooms are maintained very well and have magnificient views of the near-by hills and waterfalls. Dilip is a great host, very friendly and ever ready to listen and make sure the guests are at home. His staff is very helpful too and provided us with exceptional food and support during our entire stay. Dilip made sure that staunch vegetarians like my family were well taken care of. Places like Thala cauvery and Bhagamandala temple are within driving distance from here.

Room Tip: All rooms are as good as new, spacious and very well maintained.
