The Very English Lodge
The lodge, which used to be a house once upon a time, has been redone is such a way the all the stately colonial-era vibes are intact while still providing modern luxuries. The rooms of the lodge have been designed into a reception, dining room, a library and games area, and a home theatre room. The reception designed in a typical English colonial theme complete with chandeliers and wood-panelled walls is your first association with the estate’s very British feel and look. The verandah of the lodge, perfect for sipping a cup of coffee in the morning, provides you and your Instagram feed with a rather beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and valley. Oh, and during the nights, it’s a perfect spot to view the night sky sprinkled with stars.
The Private Villas
Looking for a quite staycation? The spacious and charmingly appointed villas, designed in a very British colonial style, are what you need. Private and serene, these villas come with their own manicured garden and seating for you to enjoy cool, misty mornings and gorgeous twilight evenings — all of them picturesque and calming in every way. The in-room amenities include all the usual fare along with very colonial elements such as four-poster beds, study tables, and a rather big bath tub.
Food For The Soul
Food plays an important part at this estate. Local and seasonal cuisines are prepared using fresh ingredients, sourced from in and around the estate. And since the property is tucked inside a coffee estate, it goes without saying that coffee served here is as fresh as morning dew. A variety of Arabicas and Robustas, freshly ground, perfectly roasted, and beautifully brewed, coffee here is a must-try.
Treks And Elephant Camps
Whether you wish to unwind with a game of billiards or go trekking, there’s plenty for you to do in and around the estate. The property is easily accessible to major spots such as Kushalnagar and Dubare Elephant Camp.
