About the resort
Located in Karnataka’s verdant Coorg district, Virajpet is about 35 km from the district headquarters Madikeri and is equally mesmerising. As the plains give way to the hills and the road begins to curve upwards, the wide vistas of forested slopes and valleys act as a soothing balm. It is a lovely mix that catches the eye on either side of the road. There are thick jungles, paddy fields, and coffee plantations interspersed with pepper and cardamom plants. In between are little streams and rivulets, the occasional waterfall during the monsoons, and then there is the river Cauvery, revered by the Kodavas. Round a bend over a hill Virajpet suddenly comes into view and it is almost like a picture postcard. There are rows of houses broken by patches of greenery amidst which rises the pale blue spire of the St Anne’s Church.
Set against this backdrop is the Club Mahindra Virajpet, the group’s first plantation resort. Spread across the lovely premises are 32 units, a mix of single bedroom and studio apartments, which offer comfortable stay for guests along with a host of facilities and activities. You can sit back and relax amidst the beautiful coffee plantations and sip on a cup of coffee or stroll through lush greenery. You can also wander further to discover the Virajpet’s secrets and indulge in a blend of adventure, history and nature.
It was a stay with family in the hotel and was a surely a good ones. The hotel is beautifully set up in the natural background of Coorg itself. Had great fun with taking a walk on the natre trail.
