The Luxury Vivanta by Taj – Madikeri, Coorg, Resort in India

Luxury-Hotel-Design-Madikeri-India-04

Elusively shy, pristinely private, organic at heart, nestled within a biosphere and perched 4,000 feet above sea level on an idyllic hill-side, Vivanta by Taj – Madikeri, Coorg promises the next Eden.

Just 7 kms from Madikeri, yet supremely isolated and canopied as far as the eye can see, the luxury Indian hotel is spread across a 180 acre living, breathing rainforest, with more than 300 odd species of flora. It’s a cocoon for the cosmopolitan wanderlust seeking new rejuves, great mornings and splendid sunsets with “as you please” in between.

Featuring panoramic views from every room, the boutique Indian hotel offers 62 rooms and villas and a presidential nirvana suite. Designed to be one with nature the resort is an extension of the rainforest in which it is reposed.

Even the smallest villa offers a delightful space with large picture-windows offering stunning vistas from every corner of the abode. Each villa is well appointed with all the creature comforts a contemporary wanderlust desires, not to forget your own fire-place in most of the rooms.

The five luxury bliss villas each come with a built-in indoor pool and a retractable sun-roof. The presidential nirvana suite is a capacious 9,000 sq. ft. with three bedrooms, a swimming pool, a living pavilion by the pool, a large separate Jacuzzi, a central courtyard and is fully equipped for in-house bespoke dining.

Vivanta Madikeri houses a Jiva Grande Spa, located in the main lobby block which delves down three levels of the rainforest. It offers stunning views of the landscape which lends a mystical aura from every treatment room.

The expansive spa and wellness space sports private treatment suites with their own steam and showers; a relaxation deck; a wellness café and the signature Jiva experience – the Gudda bath that draws from the local ethos of Coorg and is found in traditional households of the region.

Generally located in an outdoor setting, water is heated in a copper vessel on a wood fire and is used for bathing. One can experience a traditional massage with the Jiva signature blend, followed by a hot water bath in the Gudda, leaving you refreshed and re-invigorated.
