"A palette of light and shadow"

6.3/7
Posted 1 Jun, 2015

It was a palette of light and shadow, an arcadia of winding tracks amid luxuriant coffee bushes, lofty silver oaks swaddled in pepper vines, orange trees, and jackfruits and the occasional mango. With no man made intrusions, the wooded estate joyously proclaimed the glory of nature, under a cloudless sky. Crickets kept up an unending chirp while birds of different feathers tweeted and warbled and yodelled, proclaiming that they are the masters of this domain. Drenched in overnight showers, foliage glowed a brilliant green, while grass edging the twin tracks on the path glistened with fresh moisture and leafy branches swayed lazily in the cool morning air. The intermittent splattering of dung on the twisting trail could've come from horses, deer, or even elephants that occasionally roamed the estate. I was in The Windflower Resorts & Spa in Coorg. Just a two-hour drive from Mysore along a smooth and winding highway, this secluded retreat ensconced within a sprawling 25-acre coffee plantation and perched over 5000 feet above sea level promises contemporary luxuries, gourmet food, wellness therapies and interesting adventure and leisure options. Accommodation comes in three categories: studio, suite, and villas. The studios promise contemporary comforts without really indulging the guests and are not ideally placed to view sweeping vistas of the surrounding hills from their balconies. The suits are better located along a winding paved path bounded by landscaped gardens. The interiors are designed to indulge. Pull back the curtains on the wide French Windows in the living room and the distant hills beckon you, or step onto the deck just outside and take in the verdant misty slopes while relaxing on rattan chairs. While parquet flooring, plush seating, and warm lights make the living room cosy, the bedroom is large and spacious, with recliners and other pieces of furniture adding comfort and utility and large windows letting you savour the outdoors while you lie snug in the king-sized bed. The bathrooms are a delight too: trendy fittings, a Jacuzzi, glass enclosed shower niche and an open-air shower in a cosy little pebble-strewn yard. Toiletries are generous and classy too. But the villas go up another notch in terms of comforts and space. Bedroom and living are roomier with added accessories and so is the bath, but it's the wooden deck outside the living area that takes the cake. Surrounded by clipped hedges that provide ample privacy, a capacious Jacuzzi that can accommodate four adults with room to spare, sits on a patch of grass. Lounging chairs on the deck surrounding the Jacuzzi invite you to bask in comfort and may be catch up on your reading. With such attention to creature comforts, food cannot be any less pretentious. The yet-to-be-named restaurant in this spanking new resort is wide and spacious and sits on a lower deck below the huge reception portal and overlooking the infinity swimming pool. Rattan chairs and glass topped tables, rows of lights under cane and cloth shades hanging from the high ceiling, a patch of green with a tree growing right through the ceiling, decorative light fixtures and an entire side open to the green outdoors make for an ideal setting to savour the gourmet fare. A-la-carte or buffet is based on occupancy but both offer Indian, Asian, continental and the local Kodava cuisine. Chef Vishwanath boasts years of experience, including long stints at Laitha Mahal Palace Hotel, Mysore and similar other hotels and resorts. While romantic dinners are arranged under a gazebo outdoors or by the poolside under the stars, the health conscious are indulged with wellness cuisine in the spa restaurant. The Emerge Spa here is definitely a welcome feature, housed inside a separate block not far from the meandering line of suites and villas. The entrance foyer is a study in peace and elegance. The muted shades of the walls, the soft-toned flooring, art pieces sitting pretty on the walls, the minimalist but classy furniture, peaked roof resting on polished wooden rafters all contribute to the understated but tranquil ambience. Adding to the tranquillity, a peaceful visage of Buddha on a large granite bust sits inside a rectangular pool under a patch of sky. The lower floors house the massage rooms for traditional ayurvedic massages and other procedures, while the upper floors has rooms for Balinese massage and other wellness treatments. Services range from r a half-hour head and shoulder massage to 90-minute ayurvedic aroma therapy massage and more. The Balinese treatments are something special. Steam, sauna and chilled showers add to the experience. While a well-equipped Gym caters to the fitness freaks, Yoga and meditation classes every evening purvey the mind and body. The swimming pool here boasts an interesting setting. Surrounded by lush greenery and lofty old trees, the contoured pool is capacious and inviting. While the pool deck is strewn with lounging chairs and sun shades, a large water body nearby provides an ideal waddling pool to a dozen or so geese that go about their business unmindful of the swimmers nearby. At the break of dawn or as dusk approaches, guests looking for peace and tranquility could be seen taking up vantage points around the waterfront for meditation. Outdoor activities include plantation walk, early morning nature walk, horse rides within the estate, treks and river rafting at the nearby Dubare Elephant camp, and if the guest prefer, a dinner at a traditional Coorg home for groups of 8 to 10. A trip to Madikeri town just 15 km away and called the Scotland of India offers vistas of misty hills in winter, lush forests, acres of tea and coffee plantations and orange groves. En-route, the Abbi Falls is a popular tourist attraction especially post monsoon. Getting There: By Air: Nearest airports are at Bangalore (252 km) and Mangalore (125 km). By Rail: Nearest railhead is at Mysore (120 km). By Road: A network of smooth highways connect to Mangalore, Mysore and Bangalore. Best time to visit: April to November. Their tariffs include all meals and taxes.

6.1/7
Posted 25 Aug, 2010

Had an amazing experience in this well located resort which is right on the highway some 16 kms before Madikeri. The roads from Bangalore to Madikeri now is AWESOME with the repairs on the highway just outside Kushalnagar. The journey took us almost 4 hrs to complete and boy what a time we had. The resort is beautifully located inside thick forest with a breath taking view of its swimming pool, there is a small pond which has some beautiful ducks. The rooms are large and very neat the food amazing with a lot of varities. We spent one day there wish we could have spent more time there.

"Worth the room cost with all necessary amenities"

5.9/7
Posted 31 Oct, 2014

The front office as well as staff service members were up to the mark, they were friendly, helpful and very attentive to our needs and they provided welcome drink. The rooms, interior and accessories are very impressive and beautiful, it was so spacious and the furniture was too good, has an AC, two TV's, coffee maker, water bottles, mini fridge and geyser facility in the room and there was three types bath facility in the washroom like tub, shower and open bath, the room tariff was around Rs. 8500 to 10000 per day with food. It was located on the highway of the Coorg and it was very convenient for sightseeing places and there was rafting nearby. The hotel appearances, exteriors and interiors were excellent and it was fully furnished hotel. I stayed here for three days with family for relaxation in October 2012. The room was booked through online and there were no issues at the time of check-in and check-out and there was no communication problem with staffs. They provided more varieties of food, the quality and taste of the food was excellent. There was an individual swimming pool facility, spa facility and games for children. It's worth to pay for this hotel room cost; it was recommendable to other travellers.
