Orange County Resorts is an experiential holiday company that owns luxury resorts affiliated to ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’, at Coorg & Kabini, Karnataka, India. The Orange County Experience enshrines a simple philosophy: Provide exquisite holiday experiences while preserving the purity of nature and culture of the land.
Orange County’s 'Spirit of the Land' philosophy finds its most intimate expression at Kabini. Steeped in local lore and culture, and inspired in design by the ‘Kadu Kuruba Hadis’ (local tribal villages), this picturesque resort of sweeping panoramic vistas is bordered on two sides by the Kabini river.
While the interiors of the 37 intimate Pool and Jacuzzi huts are a celebration of the vernacular, with ethnic furniture, tribal furnishing and bottle gourd lamp shades, the exteriors capture the splendour and richness of the landscape and culture in its colour and texture.
The resort offers a host of facilities such as a scenic Reading Lounge, 2 restaurants, Ayurvedic spa, two swimming pools and intimate dining experiences. The resort also offers an array of activities such as Wildlife Safaris (on land and water), close interaction with Meenakshi, the resort elephant and more.
The Kabini region, surrounded by the Bandipur, Nagarhole and Wayanad wildlife sanctuaries, is one of the richest wildlife habitats in India. It is home to the Gaur, Sambar and the Sloth Bear among others, and is also home to the largest congregation of Asiatic Elephants. The high density of herbivores turns this region into one of the few places in Asia where three large predators i.e., the Tiger, Leopard and the Wild Dog, coexist in large numbers.
