Purpose of my visit was to spent a few adventurous days in Coorg during my college break. This place is more than what we expected. Location of the county is ideal for relaxing and calms your nerve. Amongst greenery, you can actually look up in the sky and see the 100s of stars shining on you. Each group is given proper attention by the hosts. Hospitality of this place is one of the best which you would ever encounter. The place is properly well maintained however it will be advisable if you carry your own essentials as the place is a little inside the wood and the market closes early evening. The fun activities conducted by the hosts are amazing. Playground, camp fire site (separate for each group), plantation site are present in this resort. The place looks exactly as it is shown in the pictures only with some modifications. These people even provide you instant service if you order anything from the market. If needed vehicle is also provided by them for your convenient travel. The whole place is made creatively and in each and every corner you will find something new and interesting to look at. All the cottages are very pretty and comfortable to live in even though they are made of bamboo and hay. If you are looking to spend some quality time with your family or your friends or your partner, it is an ideal place. You will cherish the moments spend in this place for the rest of your life. :D
I was travelling in a group of 20 between the ages of 18-29, from Bangalore to Evergreen County, Coorg. For starters, the entire build up to the trip was handled very well by the person I was in contact with. Every small detail was planned and the communication back and forth was excellent. I felt very comfortable bringing my team on this trip. We got delayed due to traffic, but ultimately reached a beautiful venue by late evening, with the path lit up on either side by fire lanterns. We had a campfire, BBQ and dinner, stayed in two lovely bamboo-built cottages, all while having the comforts of modern life such as enough plug points to suffice 10-15 people per cottage and speakers to play music from. The activities they planned for us the following day were very engaging and the overall service exceeded my expectation. Would definitely recommend this venue for any large group going to Coorg I had read some negative reviews after my trip before writing this, and I must say that I am shocked. It is unfortunate that some people must have had a bad experience but personally, I would recommend you give this place a shot, because of the venue and the service.
The place is about 6 kms from madikeri town, but transportation is not too much of a problem. The hosts arrange for pickups frm madikeri. The estate itself is beautiful, full of coffee plants, pepper vines, all kinds of flowering bushes, and a small paddy field. In fact the whole of coorg is a series of estates one after another, and apparently there are more than 3000 homestays in the area! The accomodation here is in a small self contained bungalow which has 3 bedrooms, hall and kitchen. It is ideal for larger families, who can book the whole place. The rooms are decently furnished, although there could be better seating arrangements in the living room. The bathrooms are clean. The food is nice although a bit basic with not too much variety. The hosts r friendly and helpful.
Best Experience: A walk thru the plantation early in the morning is not to be missed.
Worst Experience: nothing really, except maybe u have to watch out for all kinds of creepy crawlies, esp after dusk!
Firstly, Thank you 'ever green county' for coming out with a different concept. This is My first sight to observe this kind of theme based county, though I had travelled different places prior. Had a pleasant stay with my buddies and rocked the trip. I felt so ADVENTEROUS in PLANTATION TRAIL, getting knowledge of different plants and trees practically and walking with lanterns in dark nights with a scaring sounds of animals and visiting of scary house in mid of walk made us inquisitive and adventerous which left us on thinking regarding it till late night. I felt so adventerous during night drive hitting the speed of 90kmph at offroad condition. Had a homely food which tasted good. And many fun activities like camp fire, zip line ride and even more activities made us to enjoy. Stay in wooden houses was different experience to me as it's first time for me to be in such, those gave us a feeling of homely stay with their hospitality and caring to us. Thanks to our cab driver Ashok Bhai who always made us happy during journey and made us thrilled by his driving and trust worthy person. Thank you "Ever Green county team " a nice team work. Love you people. Wish to be there again for long time stay.
Our adventurous stay experience began soon after our first conversation with Bajan & Kokila. This is definitely the best place to stay in Coorg Virajpet if you are looking for adrenaline rush type feel, yet safe and cosy and beautiful location The cottages are so creatively planned that we extended our stay to 4 days by living in their different theme based cottages daily. Their service and hospitality is excellent and the staff is well mannered and quick to help Bajan helped us with itinerary and mythological significance of nearby temples so well that we never felt it was our first visit to Coorg. Whether you fancy taking a dip in their beautiful lake or being pampered by his mom's tasty food, or falling in love with your pet all over again after seeing Zulu, evergreen county gave me the ideal break I deserved Certainly planning next visit soon to be 'felt treated like kids' with care yet again. Miss you guys.
