Amazing estate stay in Coorg with Thrillophilia. Rooms were well maintained and spacious, with commendable amenities and service. Attached bathrooms. Food was spicy, though, and frankly couldn’t eat much. Colleagues loved it too.Played carrom and football in the evening with campfire and music. Negi ji showed us the coffee plantations and guided us about the processes that take place. We skipped fishing as all of us were vegetarians. Overall, good work. Thank you Thrillophilia.

Those who love staying amidst pure nature should definitely visit Karada. The bamboo huts here have a warmth always. I and my cousins went for a 2 day trip to Karada over a weekend. Very convenient to reach. And of course, the food was amazing. Thank you everyone.

Awesome stay and great cosy rooms here, which we really enjoyed. The highlight of the entire trip was the early morning trek, but we felt that the checkout at 11 was too early, and we didn’t get to spend enough time at the place at all.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the place was exactly what the website had promised it to be. Great value for money, and a friendly set of staff that run the place.

We dined in the middle of a forest!! The rooms had such great furniture, the place was vast, and the owners were so loving and warm. They told us that they grew the bamboo forest themselves. Lovely stay at just 1400 rs

This was one of the best tours we had in the recent times. All of us usually don’t prefer taking any standard tours through websites, but, this was something that seemed enticing. And, luckily, it did end up to be a pleasant and amazing experience. I have already recommended this to a bunch of friends.

Some of the Pros are: It is nice place to stay with great indoor and outdoor ambiance. The food provided was tasty, even the non-vegetarian options were nice and yummy. Different varieties of food were available. The surroundings were totally brilliant. The whole town is photogenic with so much natural beauty all around. The only con was the frequent power cuts.

Staying in estates is something that I have seen only in movies or read about in stories. When we did finally have a stay, I was so glad and happy. It is a super happy memory to cherish all my life. Thanks to my wife for planning this and surprising me.

3 of us went. Even though Thrillophila guys didn't provided what ever they promised( no activity because its a small group, instead they said they will arrange premium cottage, they didn't had such cottage) , the people from this place makes our trip really memorable. Food was great.

Away from the daily tensions, the estate is a magical place to stay. Great place for sometime alone, or with dearest ones.

Travelling to Karnataka is something that you can keep doing. This state has so many hidden treasures that you would keep on enjoy. Coorg is a place where one can both have adventure as well as relaxation. While my hubby chose to go on a trek, I chose to stay back in my estate room and have a relaxed walk around the estate.

This was definitely a very pleasant stay. I wanted to be away from the noises and hassles of the polluted city which I live in every day. The estate stay was a very interesting and enticing weekend experience. Being at the lap of mother nature, this trip was so worthy and pleasant.

This is something that you wouldn’t regret spending money on. Initially I thought this was costly, but it turns out to be very worthy. I am so glad to have taken this worthy trip. Although there was frequent power cuts and also make sure you go on right season as it was raining during over stay.

This place is a must visit for writers, travellers, and photographers. I am a travel writer and to complete my blog, I bought a DSLR and started photography. Mostly I get only to shoot only on these trips. I wanted to really click some nice nature photography. When I took this trip, I was happy as Coorg is indeed a paradise for nature lovers. The estate stay provided me a lot of free time. I was relaxed, laid back, and walked around and clicked some amazing pictures.

I took trip to Coorg with my colleagues from Bangalore. We were all thrilled as it was our first trip together. Although we go on treks, those were mostly a day trip. We wanted it this tour to be the best first trip together. Also, it was kind of a farewell for one of the people. Planning this was tough, so we took a tour package. We were glad about the tour pack as it was all well planned and the trip was indeed a very memorable one.

I always considered Coorg as a paradise for nature lovers. This is one place where one can sit back and relax as well as have adventurous sports. I wanted to take a laid-back and a relaxing weekend away. This is why I chose to stay in the Coorg estates. It was completely worthy and an amazing experience for me. Also, it was very rejuvenating and refreshingly pleasant to have a stay in an estate instead of luxurious hotels
