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.
Set amidst a 300-acre working coffee and spice plantation, Orange County, Coorg is flanked by the holy river Cauvery on one side and by the lush Dubare Reserve Forest on the other. As if the location wasn’t enough, the 60 opulent accommodations do their bit to pamper the senses too. While the luxurious Plantation Style Cottages offer a glimpse into what was once the privileged life of the gentleman planter, the exquisite Private Pool Villas, built using the rust-red, hand cut, laterite bricks, are inspired by the unique architecture of the local Kodavas - the legendary natives of Coorg who trace their provenance to the Macedonian armies of Alexander the Great.
On offer at the resort are 3 restaurants, 2 swimming pools, coffee lounge, intimate dining experiences. The resort encourages you to get out and explore the sprawling plantations and the surrounding coffee and spice-scented hills. The quaint riverside village teashop is the perfect place to sip a locally brewed coffee while observing the rhythms of life that have changed little over generations. Add to this, a meal with a local Kodava family, guided plantation tour and bird-watching walks, and it’s not hard to imagine why Orange County, Coorg is rated as one of the finest resorts in India.
