Enchanting Coorg : A Rejuvenating Spa Trip @ Vivanta by Taj ,Madikeri

Coorg, a serene beauty located amidst mountains surrounded by misty , breezy, enchanting woods. This mesmerising beauty definitely made it to my list of the most rejuvenating holidays. Located in the state of Karnataka, Coorg is of easy access to travellers and takes about 5 hrs travel from Bangalore, 2 hrs 30 mins from Mysore and 3 hrs from Mangalore.

    Breakfast at Kamat, Mysore road

After a sumptuous breakfast at Kamat (Mysore road), in about 3-4 hrs, we were welcomed by the foothills of Madikeri. It was a beautiful sight and truly a nature lovers paradise. The drive up-hill was pleasant and very different from my expectation, in comparison to other hill-stations like Ooty and Kodaikanal. Driving through the town and beautiful local houses, we headed to Vivanta by Taj, a breathtaking forest resort and our home for the next 3 days.

   Our home for 3 days 😍😍😍😍

Vivanta by Taj is a perfect luxury resort for a mesmerizing experience in the enchanting woods. Waking up to the spectacular view of lush greenery, aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the silence of the woods, close to mother nature and away from busy chaotic city lives, it was surely a memorable experience. It is a 180- acre rainforest with glorious sights and in-house tourist activities. The property is so vast and built with such amenities that it becomes a whole holiday experience in itself. And that is exactly what we did, we stayed in for all 3 days and 4 nights and enjoyed the luxurious holiday at the rainforest resort.

 The property is very well-planned with wellness Spa, Infinity pool, Fitness center, Beauty center, 5 restaurants and other outdoor activities.

 Jiva Spa is a wellness center and they have a variety of treatments and therapies to choose from.  They welcome you with a soothing herbal tea and hand you the spa menu to choose from while you enjoy your herbal tea with an enchanting view. This was my very 1st spa experience and although I was a little skeptical about a full-body massage, it was a relaxing deep tissue therapy. Definitely a must try!

 Cocktails and dinner at the poolside grill, Vivanta by Taj, Madikeri

For our last night at the resort, we wrapped it up with cocktails and dinner at the poolside grill restaurant. We digged into the yummy kebabs while chatting away, engrossed in some pleasant music and the gorgeous pool side view all light up for the night. Not to mention the dessert, definitely one of the best chocolate cakes I have tasted and you guys know I'm a dessert lover.

Next morning , we checked out to leave for Bangalore before one last stop in the town to pick up some spices, coffee powder and homemade chocolates. 

Time of visit: We visited in June 4th week.
Weather: Pleasant weather. It was drizzling throughout.
