Located in Madikeri -a land of Generals and brave soldiers, who brought laurels, security and honor to the country. The cottages are set in the heart of lush green Silver Oaks forest with thick coffee plantation takes the visitors very close to nature. A place to stay for those who are keen observer of nature.Brig D.K. Joshi - Haldwani
I stayed there for 3 nights & 2 day and the experience was mesmerizing. The location, rooms, hospitality, etc, every aspect that was important to me and my family was par excellence. To sum up my experience: The place that i stayed in was more fascinating than the place i visited (Coorg).Amrita - Hyderabad
The property is pretty new and the host has taken great care to design and maintain his property in pristine condition. He is passionate about his property and that’s reflected in the service.
There are 5 cottages along with Dining Room and a hall for indoor games. The rooms are comfortable, cozy and are equipped with all the modern amenities. The estate has waterfalls, steep climbs and dense forest tracks and best explored by walk.
The staff is extremely courteous and cooperative. Suraj and Jeevan deserve a special mention for making our stay comfortable. The cooks whip up tasty and good food. Nischal ensures that the menu is properly planned so that the guests have a taste of the local cuisine ( nool puttu et al ).
They also arrange for knowledgeable Cab drivers for sightseeing around Madikeri. If you are an outsider allot at least 2 days for local attractions (Thala Kaveri & Tibetan Temple are a must see)
One thing we missed was the Sunset point but that’s planned in our next trip anyway!Sridhar - Pune
It’s a very nice place close to town but still away from the hustle-bustle of Madikeri.
A natural stream adds to the ambience of the place.
Not too many rooms, so it gets the attention of a home stay, the styling and upkeep of the rooms is more like a 4 star resort.
The rooms are tastefully organised and well kept. The balcony opens into the canopy.
You don't have to get ready and set out for birding! Just wake up and sit out!!Krishna Kumar - Bangalore
Nested in a quiet hillside, this coffee estate offers a great opportunity to relax and get some quiet alone time, close to nature. At the time of booking, when we were told that most guests like to just relax in the porch/balcony, I was bit skeptical of getting bored - but it did turn out to be just the case - we spent hours chatting on the balcony.
My wife and I had a great time - just the right mix of solitude and socializing in evening with other guests. Be sure to visit Mandalpatti - it will be a memorable experience - the ride, as well as the views from top.
The rooms are very well furnished - comparable to a top class hotel room. The owners are a great company during evening dinner and how can we forget the staff - Suraj in particular with his liveliness that lights up the dining hall.Ashwin R - Pune
The owner of this paradise is one of the most decent and down to earth person that i have met. Serene Woods was a three night stay for us coming from Sakleshpur and moving on to Kabini. The property is brand new but the location is awesome. In time the fire place will be ready for the bar be q etc.
It is just 5 minutes drive from the bustling town but no one can tell.
Nature’s sweetest alarm clock (The Whistling Malabar Bird) wakes you up in the morning and leave you asking for more. The white noise of the stream and the serene environs of the resort leaves you spell bound. Ponnappa and his brother go out of the way to make the stay comfortable and as private as possible. The visit to the table top is something to experience. Being from north India the local food is great and the pork is wow. Sitting on the dining area balcony listening to music and having a drink is something that needs to be experienced. The hospitality is amazing. We have promised to be back and we will be there soon. Very soon. Keep it up and you will not have a day empty on the resort. Go there for the warmth and the sound of the best alarm clock. Thank you for the small return gift on our way out. CHEERS from me and madam :-)Harmeet Pal Singh - Gurgaon
