The word “Honeymoon” itself gives butterflies in stomach, so you can imagine my status very well. After getting married and heading for honeymoon after a fortnight. You will be amazed why I chose to go for Honeymoon after a fortnight of my marriage. The reason was that I stayed back with parents so that my wife could mix with my family and she’s recognized in the family, few may feel weird. Anyways, each individual has its own way of looking at things.
I will share my secret of our destination. Our Honeymoon stay was wonderful in the lap of nature and peaceful ambiance – Coorg at the famous Vivanta by Taj, Madikeri. The staycation added colors to our trip and the days afterwards.
I will not delve more about my alliance with my beautiful lady but would definitely delve into minute details of the staycation @ Taj Madikeri.
We started from Bengaluru by car in late evening and by morning, we had our eyes gazing at the amazing valley of Coorg from the stunning lobby of Taj Madikeri. We were given a warm welcome at the reception in a regional manner. The start was so beautiful, our expectation rose high and the team of Taj met our expectation without any hiccups. Frankly, the service was much higher than my expectation and imagination.
The majestic property of Taj mesmerized me from within. Its grandeur, architecture, aesthetic design and the location of the property is surreal and breath-taking. It is tucked into the hills and greenery sprawls all over the landscape of hills and forest.
From reception, we were escorted to our beautiful cottage by a buggy. The Buggy had to basically run down the slopes of the hill and we could see the other beautiful cottages on our way.
As we stepped inside our cottage, the intricate design, aesthetic sense & simplicity simply awed us. It gave us a royal feeling for sure. My wife was mesmerized and we thanked ourselves for choosing the best we could, considering that we did not wanted to travel too far from Bengaluru.
We were asked to visit the Breakfast dining area. The spread was nicely decked up and consisted basically of all types of cuisine – Continental, North – South Indian specials, some special delicacies of Coorg(Kodagu) and wide choice of juices. We tried as much as we could, it was sumptuous.
The lunch and dinner varieties were equally amazing and there are no words to describe how well Taj stands out from the rest.
The property also has a small museum which reflects on the history of Kodagu (Coorg) along with some plantations of coffee, tea and strawberry.
The lobby of the hotel stands at the best place, offering view of the entire valley. The infinity pool adjacent to it, only make the view stunning. The Barbeque restaurant at the foothills – the Grill along the pool is mind-blowing for what it serves.
We enjoyed the stay at Taj thoroughly and the courteous management stole our hearts – right from the reception, during our stay in the property, housekeeping staff, F&B teams at Ferntree and the Grill were amazing.
The property is immaculately clean and grandeur and they take too much care to maintain the cleanliness of the property.
Due to professional obligations, we stayed for three days & two nights but the memory of the stay is etched in our memory and I look forward to many more stays at Vivanta by Taj, Madikeri to enjoy the lavishness in the luscious backdrop of Coorg.
Here are my few clicks of the Taj property which I managed to click when I was relieved from my newly wedded bride.
