Coorg Resorts: Literal Paradises Amidst The Breathtaking Scenic Views!

Hello, This is Afreen Shaikh from Andhra Pradesh, an account executive by profession. Since my job gets so monotonous, I usually take these little breaks .This time, I decided to go to Coorg via Bangalore. I discovered Bangalore, is the city with a cool climate, because it’s situated at a place equidistant from the shores and also the elevation does a great deal for its climate. I travelled from here to Coorg which is 238 Km by road, taking just 6 hours.

I had decided to save and go for a luxury trip and selected the Old Kent Spa and Resort, a 200 acre property. As I entered this coorg resort, surrounded by lovely coffee plantation I was struck by its British Colonial style of architecture. I was pleased with the large villas. The breakfast was pleasant a mixture of Coorg and British cuisine. Sitting in the lush property I watched the varieties of birds and the flora and fauna. The bathrooms were a dream with lovely English type of bath-tubs.

Coorg Resorts: The Verdant Green Environment Spiced With Luxury

The next I decided to go in for The Windflower Resorts and Spa, as I felt once I am here I need to have the pleasure of visiting it. Spread over a 25 acres of land the large airy 44 rooms had the sun filtering in with the coffee plantation and verdant greenery all around. The towering teakwood and rosewood trees, around the pool were such a pleasant scene.

Having a riverside murmuring next to my room which is on stilts was my dream which I realized, the next day at Meriyanda Nature Resort. The stylish stone and wooden bathroom with a spacious bedroom along with a deck offering the breathtaking view of Coorg was fascinating. The trek to the water fall was enchanting, from this Coorg Resort. Similarly I checked out the Heritage resorts, where the pool had no chlorine and the meal I had, used the spice from the organic garden within its precincts.

On my last day I casually checked out the Serene Woods, and was completely taken up by the unique nature get-away. The evening bonfire, the treks and bird-watching was something which I promised myself next time.

A Touch Of Culture And Traditions At Vedic Village Spa Resort!

After visiting so many places in Kolkata, we wanted to relax and get some luxurious services. We browsed through the internet and found one resort to be most popular and favourite among many Indians.

It was Vedic Village Spa Resort. And, we instantly made our decision to spend the rest of our time in Kolkata at this wonderful resort. We booked our room online and hired a taxi to have the most amazing and satisfying time in Vedic village resort. The moment we entered the resort, few pretty ladies welcomed us with a garland. Their hospitality right from the beginning was touching our hearts.

The staff accompanied us to the room and even offered us complimentary drinks. We took an Earth Villa to feel the authenticity of Bengal. It was a cute little cottage, had wood work inside the rooms, the place was decorated so deeply that we were mesmerised. We already started to experience the earthy feel that was provided to the visitors of the hotel.

After spending some leisure time in our room, we moved ahead to the dining corner of the resort. When we took a stroll around the resort, we found several dining places. Some of them were Bhoomi, Agni, Yagna, and Chai. We were glad to find such classic names of the restaurants.

We had our lunch at Bhoomi and tasted many delicacies of Bengal. Well, the Bengali cuisine is lip smacking. Alu Bhaja, Moong Arhar dal, Rohu in mustard, mishit doi were some of my favourites. In the late afternoon we thought of playing games and enjoy the activities that the resort had to offer its guests. There was boating, archery, pool, cycling and biking, volley ball, and many indoor games. We chose to boat and enjoy a bullock cart ride. It was simply fun.

Then we had our special evening tea at the restaurant Chai- the tea lounge. It was refreshing indeed. Later we had small conversations with the staff members about the religious places of Kolkata as we planned our next two days visiting the ancient temples. The staffs were obliging and gave us information about Belur Math and Dakhineshwar Temple. We then went to our room to doze off as we fixed our next days for religious activities.

Class, Economy And Luxury At The Le Roi Raipur

Though I am not choosy about where I stay during my travels, I am particular about economizing my trip. After much research and phone calls, I made reservations at the Le Roi Raipur. It was pretty simple to reach the hotel, as it was well within walking distance from the railway station. This is probably the best hotel one can find at a very suitable budget, especially one that is located well within the premises of the Raipur Railway station.

Designed to accommodate spacious rooms and latest technology incorporated into the daily routine, the Le Roi Raipur does more than justice to its pretty economical tariff. The hotel has an in house restaurant that serves only the most delicious food and the best local cuisine too. Give your palate the homely feel as well as the pampering you need once in a while at least.
