This resort, with glass cottages, unending coffee plantations and zen vibes all around, there’s no reason you won’t fall in love with Java Rain, in the hills of Chikmagalur. Started by the same folks behind Bangalore’s 100ft. Boutique Bar Restaurant and the Bayleaf Restaurant, it’s not difficult to see that the three properties are connected. They all ooze those soothing, zen vibes and chic decor. Nestled in the middle of the Mullayanagiri hills with coffee plantations as far as the eyes can see, Java Rain is spread across a sprawling garden. So, take a book, find yourself a comfortable spot, and just unwind.
The resort is kitted out with four single villas, four double villas and three swanky presidential suites (perfect to treat your significant other). All of them are massive, and with ceiling to floor glass windows that give you the feeling of being in the forest at all times. There’s also the love chairs and couches on your private deck to just sit and stare at nature. The suite has three bedrooms — one with a private pool, jacuzzi and the third with a stunning view of the town, and is ideal for a group of six to eight. With attached decks to relax on and sip on copious amounts of coffee, of course, make sure you stay more than just a night to really soak in the chill vibes.
When you’re woken up by the warm sunlight streaming in, head out to the swimming pool or head to their in-house spa - Shvah Spa. Meals are currently all at their restaurant Mirra which serves up international cuisines, and local fare. We recommend you stick to the delicious regional cuisine loaded with fresh spices. Think neer dose, akki roti, chicken curry and fish. Relax and rejuvenate here.
