Vivanta by Taj – Madikeri, Coorg, India

From soaring snow mountains of the far north to the steamy sun-washed beaches, India’s dramtic terrain is breathtaking. Along with abundant natural beauties, exquisitely carved temples rise majestically out of pancakeflat deserts and old fotresses peer over plunging ravines. Aficionados of the great outdoors can scout for big jungle cats on wildlife safaris, paddle in the shimmering waters of one of many beautiful beaches, take blood pumping treks high in the Himalaya, or simply inhale pine-scented air on meditative forest walks.

The picturesque Coorg district, officially known as Kodagu, is one of the tiniest districts in the southern Indian state of Karnataka. The headquarters of Tata Coffee, one of the biggest coffee producing companies in Asia, is located at Pollibetta, in South Coorg. Located on the slopes of the Western Ghats, it has abundant forest wealth, covering over 30% of the total area of the district. Coorg is famous for its “sacred forests” granted by the erstwhile rulers, adjoining village temples or local deities. These forests have helped in maintaining the ecological balance in the area.

A rainforest’s best kept secret! Canopied on a tranquil hill-side, across 180 acres and 4,000 ft. above sea level.
