Soul food finds body and spirit to seduce your palate in three awesome temples to the culinary arts.
For starters, we discover the way to a man's heart is through the portals of the generously stocked Granary, an indulgent ode to the good life as lived by the gentleman planters of a bygone era. Thrift and moderation are words conspicuous by their absence and this restaurant is all about abundance, be it the gourmet continental spread or the Indian repast, with a strong Kodava flavor finding expression in the signature Pandi Curry (spiced curried pork) and other gems from the ethnic melting pot.
The Peppercorn, a speciality restaurant, pays homage to the humble Kebabs and Grills, and serves up unlimited platters of their finest specimens in a serene setting overlooking the private lake.
Fine dining for vegetarians comes of age in the Plantain Leaf, which is set amidst verdant coffee and spice plantations and serves an array of North and South Indian vegetarian delicacies.
Coorg presents the perfect weather and opportunity to discover the naturalist in you. Go trekking in the adjoining Dubare Reserve Forest with a guide. Learn all about the birds and the beasts, and understand how each tree has a story to tell.
Coorg is an ornithologist's delight. And is every bit as entertaining and enlightening for the amateur birdwatcher too.
If you're visiting with your kids, and would like a spot of privacy, we've got what it takes to keep them occupied. A fully supervised Activity Centre for children attached to a communal pool.
A visit to the Dubare Elephant Camp across the river Cauvery, is a half-day programme. Visitors can participate in bathing and feeding the elephants. A specialist guides visitors in elephant behavior and builds bridges between man and mammal. The visit ends with an elephant ride through the forest to a nearby waterhole.
