Club Mahindra chooses great locations for their resorts. Coorg is that not-so-commercial hillstation-cum-rainforest that is perfect for a monsoon holiday! We celebrated our first anniversary here this July, and nothing else would have been better than this resort.
We landed at the Mangalore Airport which is the closest airport to Coorg, and had a not so good journey from there onwards, until Kodagu District started. It was like we swapped from India to Scotland! Then on, it was a scenic drive that is incomparable to most hillstations of India we've been to. Beautiful.
Upon reaching the resort, it was again so very beautiful. The resort is like a mini forest with so much greenery and big trees. And yet it was so clean and well maintained. Two swimming pools, two buffet restaurants, a bar with so many kinds of tea and coffee options to try, and a very friendly and helpful staff.
We stayed there for 4 days, out of which two days were spent enjoying the resort's beauty and their fun activities and games. It is an experience in itself. In your room, there is no noise, only the sound of constant raindrops.
For the other two days we went to see the Golden Temple/Buddhist Monastery (The second largest in India), which was good, and we took the Hard Jeep Safari which was one of the two highlights of our trip. They take you to the second highest point of Coorg where you stand inside clouds. And it pours. A L.O.T. Needless to say the scenery was like heaven.
The other highlight of our trip was that they made special arrangement for our anniversary by decorating our room/1BR so perfectly with a yummy chocolate cake!
If I had to list any problem I would say that most of the food, including the cake, salt sachets, was moist and soggy. Even the sugar. But thats a part and parcel of rainy season.
There is one more thing. Do not try the cycle ride fun activity. It is not fun. Their cycles are rusted and outdated and NOT made for short height females. I fell and bruised my legs. But considering how much fun the total experience was, it can be neglected.
