“Simply Awesome”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Location – Located 5-6 kms from Madikeri town typically like any Club Mahindra resort. Huge property with more than 200 rooms. It literally takes 2-3 days just to roam around the property only. It has 2 swimming pools which are cleanly maintained. The lighting in and around rooms during the night was awesome. There is a huge Fun Zone in the resort with various indoor games. Separate kids play room is a huge plus. Also the evening programmes conducted were also interesting. One day there was a magic show & one day they had singing/dancing competition. And then they asked everyone to join the DJ. Awesome fun.

Rooms – The rooms are nicely built. They have around 12 small blocks and each block is of 3 floors containing 15-18 rooms. Booked a hotel unit and was impressed by the size of the hotel unit. Check the photos uploaded for the same. Nice small balcony & a sofa added to the comfort. One thing I hated about the room was it had a normal television and no LCD which was a surprise to me.

Activities - Tried a Hard Jeep Safari organized by Club Mahindra & believe me it was awesome fun. They charged Rs 2400 for 4 persons but really it was an unforgettable experience. Also did the adventures which are there in the resort. And I must say the staff was quite friendly and motivating to do those adventures. We have them our cameras and they took pictures while we did the adventures.

Food – The place has 3 restaurants, 1 quick bite food counter & 1 lounge bar. Out of the 3 restaurants, one is only buffet, one is only ala-carte while the third one is a pure veg restaurant. The buffet spread is awesome; you can just sit for 1 hour and try everything in the buffet. The choice of desserts is huge. Buffet is definitely worth spending Rs 600 for breakfast + any meal. Tried the ala-carte restaurant only once and the taste was good there too. Didn’t try the pure veg restaurant though. The quick bite counter just next to fun zone is a boon as you can have a quick bite of a sandwich/samosa with a soft drink. However, the counter is open for limited time 12noon-9pm I guess.

Sight Seeing – Didn’t try lot of sight seeing. Only went to Abbey falls which is around 10-12 kms from the resort.

Staff & Service – We reached the resort around 12 midnight so the reception was little messier and they allotted us 2 rooms in 2 separate floors which they changed later next day. Otherwise the staff & service is absolutely brilliant – be it housekeeping, fun zone, adventure valley or restaurants. One of the most hospitable resorts I have ever been.

A must-visit resort of Club Mahindra. 5/5

Excellent environment. A escape from busy city life. Everywhere greenery, birds chirping, pure air etc etc. Some adventure activities were there. We missed water rafting. Staff were very polite and friendly. Very helpfull. Even i got a free upgrade from my booked room to more spacious room. My only complaint was about food. food was there in quantity but not in quality. A night buffet dinner cost 1000 Rs per person for average food. It was spread for long but not a single dish was tasty. Breakfast can be said good for 400 Rs. only one dinner we had from there. Next day, for dinner and lunch we went to Raintreat restaurant in madikeri town, behind town hall. 15 minutes drive from resort. An escape from club mahindra food, raintreat was excellent. Starting from soup to tender coconut dessert. Also Food not expensive.

stayed here over the weekend and while the property is beautiful there were a number of niggling and irritating issues.
Firstly we had traveled with a 3 year old baby and our room was a fair distance from the lobby. Not once were we asked if we could be dropped off at the room, not even when it was pouring. I did see a buggy present and a maruti van too. Also the van guy drives around like it is a highway.
Secondly they have a very odd system at the restaurants. While in most hotels you just give your room number, here you give your room number, name etc etc and they generate a slip which you need to sign before you go in. While it doesnt seem like much , it is a real pain when there are a large number of people waiting. I had to wait a good 15 minutes before I could enter the restaurant. I dont see why a sign off from the guest cant be taken at the end of the meal.
Thirdly the buffet spread is large but the food is very average.
Good things about the property are:
beautiful setting, rooms have a nice layout and are comfortable and the people are very courteous and friendly.

Awesome is the word. Great Location, Comfort Stay, Excellent Service, Delicious Food and Serene Atmosphere.

Location:
========
Club Mahindra is located in Kodagu Valley, Madikeri District, Coorg. It is just 5 kilometers away from the Main Town Market and takes 10 minutes to reach to the resort. Though the road to the resort is isolated but it is easily accessible from the town. Auto Rickshaws are available to and fro from the resort and they charge Rs.70 for one way. It’s better to avoid travel after sunset.

How to Reach:
============
Well most of the websites recommend that Mangalore is the nearest airport. Yes it is indeed as its just about 140 Kms and one expects to reach there in 3- 3-1/2 Hours of time. But that’s a theoretical figure. Practically it takes 5-1/2 – 6 Hours. The route is Mangalore Airport- Puttur – Sullia – Madikeri (Coorg). But the road from Puttur – Sullia is pathetic/worse. You have pot holes every few meters that makes your journey terrible. You may end up with a severe back pain. I would rather recommend the Bangalore - Mysore - Kushalanagar – Madikeri (Coorg) which is 260 Kms but Bangalore-Mysore being a National highway you may not feel the pain and the journey should be comfortable. Travel time will be around 6-7 Hours. So it is almost the same time as it takes from Mangalore Airport.

Why only resorts or hotels in Madikeri but not in Virajpet or Kushalanagar?
==========================================================
For me personally I recommend Madikeri. The choice is yours. They are also a part of Coorg but these may not be the center to visit all the site-seeing places. Abby Falls, Shooting Points, Raja’s Seat, Temples, etc. are mostly located in the Madikeri District. Virajpet/Kushalanagar is around 1 hour journey from the Madikeri Town. So rather than traversing from/to Madikeri, it is advantageous to stay in Madikeri itself. Furthermore SHOPPING in the Madikeri town is damn cheap.

Why Club Mahindra?
==================
As a starter even I reviewed many websites before short listing it. As I was traveling with my family and wanted to stay close by to the town, I was looking out for a hotel that will provide me with a comfortable stay and manageable food. After much researching I short listed on Coorg International / Club Mahindra.
I decided to go with Club Mahindra as it was a resort with many options as compared to Coorg International. And I was very happy with my selection.
I made my booking via www.makemytrip.com as they provided me a better deal than the Club Mahindra Folks. I got a CP deal for Rs.4600/- per day that included breakfast.

About the Room:
==============
- A Double bed with a balcony sit-out that overlooks the lush green trees inside the resort.
- They provide you with a Coffee-Maker with Sugar, Coffee and Tea Bags.
- They have a wooden Cupboard with hangers but no Iron.
- The bathrooms do have 2 Towels, Liquid Soap and a Hair Dryer.

FOOD:
======
Delicious, tasty and finger-licking food. It’s HALAL. They have 3 different restaurants:
1. Coffee Blossoms : Only Alacarte
2. Green Cardamom: Mostly Buffet. Definitely recommend this.
Breakfast: Buffet: A lavish spread-out of South and North Indian cuisines. 8AM – 10:30 AM Lunch: Buffet. As most of the guests go out for site-seeing, not many dishes but should be enough.
Dinner: Buffet. Again a huge and tasty offering.
3. Mercara: This restaurant offer strict vegetarian and Jain cuisine.

If you opted for the CP Plan that includes only complimentary breakfast then you may have to shell out around Rs. 675/- per person per meal. So if you are a couple then the total cost per day would be as follows:

Room Rent with Complimentary Breakfast : 4700
Lunch for Two : 1300
Dinner for Two : 1300
==============================================
Total per Day : 7300
===============================================

You may optionally skip you Lunch in case you are on a site-seeing. Visit www.makemytrip.com to see if they offer any better deals that includes all the meals.

Activities & Site-Seeing
===================
The resort people arrange group tours and individual tours as well depending on your interests. For E.g.
1. Dubare Elephant tour
2. Jungle Safari
3. Golden Temple Tour
4. Talacauvery Tour
5. Plantation Tour
6. Madikeri Local Tour
7. Hard Jeep Safari
8. Water Falls Safari

Every tour has a specific price and will be included in the hotel bills. Their Activity Center will provide you more information on each of the tour.

They also have a activity center where you can play indoor games and they also arrange specific activities for adults, kids and aged people.

FINAL VERDICT:
==============
A great place to stay where you can sit, relax and enjoy. At the end their sales team will try to sell out the Club Mahindra membership package. So be aware of it and if you want to go for it All the best.

We decided to visit this Club Mahindra resort to enjoy the monsoons here. We had a splendid ride in our new Renault Fluence from Bangalore.The crowd was decent, not too heavy and we were able to enjoy the stay a lot. Buffets were good and very sinful with the spread...Spa was another enjoyable experience that we had...

The resort itself is great in terms of the location as the cottages are in the midst of greenery and once can hear the chirping of crickets, not just the birds...The walks are great, though, being the monsoons, couldn't do too many...

We generally chilled out, but visited 'Talacauvery' a must see place.

This property is primarily for couples wanting to run away from the hustle and bustle of the fast paced city life. Surrounded by greens on all sides, the property is well spread out - be prepared to walk around a bit. The service is great,the choice of food excellent, though a tad overpriced. However, kudos to the management on having an option of an express gourmet menu at cheaper prices. Can be ordered from the room and picked up from the restaurant in air tight containers, almost at 40% cheaper.
Lot of activities both indoor and outdoor for adults and kids likewise.
The grocery shop like in any other Mahindra resort is a boon. If you do indulge in coffee, don't forget to pick up the freshly ground coffee powder on your way back home. One of the best coffee that we have managed to pick up and are cursing ourselves for not buying an additional pack.
Great and clean spa. Excellent service at the spa though I used in only once during my stay.
Overall, great experience and very refreshing for a 4-5 day break.
