Cabin In The Hills - Villa Urvinkhan , Chikmagalur

20:29

Villa UrvinKhan is a beautiful home stay located in the hills of Chikmangalur 250 KM from the city of Bangalore in South India. We visited the resort way back in 2012 for our first wedding anniversary and it was a wonderful experience.

The name of the resort translates to 'Dense Forest' and is indeed quiet true, perched on top of a hill the villa looks down on the coffee plantains below and series of mountain ranges along the horizon.

We stayed in Cottage No 1 which was recommended to us by the owners when we made the booking; She said that for a Anniversary holiday this was the perfect setting as it was furthest away from the main reception and secluded from rest of the resort. The resort staff was very proactive in asking about the kind of food we like, how much spice we can handle etc. We opted to try the local "Maland" cuisine And I must say the food was delicious! most of the spices and produce were sourced locally as fresh as they come.

The cottage was really  cosy with a four post bed and walls made of stone and wood,it felt like living in a log cabin in the woods. The best part of the cottage was the amazingly done up bathroom with the jacuzzi and big window.The only drawback is that there is no room service and its a small trek up to the dining area which helps to build your appetite.

The Infinity pool was one of the highlights of the resort; on a clear day one can see up to 12 mountain ranges across the horizon. The weather in Chikmangalur is mostly cold so you have to time it rite to enjoy the pool since it is not heated. The owners of the property are avid collectors of antique furniture and you can find then all over the resort.  There are also 2 vintage cars on display next to the pool, one of the staff told me that the car on the right was used by the Maharani of Mysore.
