Coffee, Spice & Plantation Life
When you step into the portals of Orange County Resorts, Coorg, you leave one world behind, and step seamlessly into another: the bygone era of the Gentleman Planter, ensconced in the cocooned comforts of a lush plantation paradise, perfumed with the subtly intoxicating aroma of coffee and spice.
Bordered by the legendary river Cauvery, and surrounded by virginal forests, this 300 acre working plantation resort perched at a height of 800m, gives you the most luxurious introduction yet, into the deepest secrets of this mystic mountain. Come, allow the spirit of the land to infuse your very being, and coax you gently on a personal voyage of discovery.
A thing of beauty, shrouded in the mists of time and legend, Coorg is a land that fascinates and provokes strong emotions. Desirable yet elusive, it has stoked the passions and curiosity of philosophers, poets and kings: it has warmly welcomed guests, and handily repelled invaders with equal aplomb. The handsome and hardy Coorgs, with their unique socio-cultural habits are as renowned hosts as they are warriors. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself listening to tales of the land over a convivial cup of coffee with someone you’ve just met, in one of the sprawling plantation homesteads that dot these picture postcard hills.
Coorg or Kodagu (originally called Kodaimalenadu) means ‘dense forest on a steep hill’ and is situated between 900 and 1525 m above sea level on the hilly Western Ghats, with the highest peaks rising almost 1750 m above sea level. Set amidst verdant valleys, imposing mountains, acres and acres of coffee and oranges, and bounteous hardwood forests with the subtle fragrance of cloves, pepper and cardamom wafting across, Coorg is one of the last remaining bastions of an age bygone.
