The resort can guide you on white water rafting, trekking and visits to the nearby holiday spots in Coorg and Kerala.

All meals are vegetarian buffet meals at ‘Gudara’, the dining hall. We serve traditional Indian food made from fresh raw materials sourced locally. On occasion, the set menus share buffet space with Chinese or Continental dishes.
