we had a oncology update for young oncologists from south India organised at The Taj,Madikeri.
This is a new venture of the Taj,a few months old! It is about 5-6 hours drive from Bangalore.
The drive for the later part was through some lush green estates,and the coffee was in full blossom,a rare sight for us city dwellers.
Tired with the long drive we were welcomed warmly by the staff at the lobby.The sight out at the lobby across into the hills is a great panoramic view - unbelievable and indescribable! I would rate it the best lobby view of any hotel, we just stood there sipping the local coffee and watching the sun and clouds play at the sunset - a great welcome by nature.
We checked into our cottages which are scattered all around the hill slopes and were driven around by eco friendly buggies.The view out of my cottage was again great - just lush greenery,I would againg say this was the best view I had among the many places I have been world over.
The evening meeting at the banquet hall was well organised so was the ambiance.
The dinner was at the poolside,again a real exotic ambiance and location,we were enrertained with local Kodava dance and music.Watching the starry sky with very little ambient light was also an experience.
The next morning included a nture hike to the nearby hillock ,led by a naturalist explaing to us the flora and fauna of the region.
We reluctantly left the place soon after lunch.
A great place to be for relaxing
