A total of 3 rooms with en suite facilities comprise the Thaneerhulla Cottage, which boasts a spacious living and dining area. Enjoy the warm sunrise with an aromatic cup of freshly brewed coffee in the verdant garden of the cottage, or unwind around a crackling bonfire in the evening - the time you spend at the Thaneerhulla Cottage will surely be one you will never forget.
The winding road through the coffee estate brought us to the bungalow once known as the 'White House of Coorg!'. The Cottabetta bungalow stands proud on top of the estate with expansive views of the forest and the hills as far as the eye can see. Mr Kulkarni who manages the property and the staff greet you with wide smiles and a strange familiarity which makes you feel that you might be at home! (how I wish my home was the bungalow itself :)). The bungalow is itself 130 years old as Mr Kulkarni goes on about its history and its significance during the British planters' days. The rooms are very cosy with modern restrooms. The property has 5 rooms, 2 of which can easily accommodate 4 persons. The furniture is exquisite probably dating back to the olden days and is beautifully maintained. A high-ceiling sitting room leads into a dining room and a back courtyard to sit and while your time away! The staff is very courteous, ever accommodating and always smiling. The food was very homely and heart-warming, no over-the-top spice or run-of-the mill buffet food here but a few lovingly made dishes topped off by the local "bella-coffee" or coffee with jaggery than sugar. There are several activities built into the stay but we enjoyed the coffee-estate tour where the driver-cum-guide described the different varieties of coffee grown and gave us an insight into the size of the Tata-Coffee conglomerate. I traveled for business with 11 of my colleagues and the reason it was extra special was that we were the only 12 people in the entire bungalow, and it felt just like... you guessed it, home. Cell-phone connectivity is good for voice calls and 2G data. In house wi-fi is provided but is slow, but then if you are here I strongly suggest you switch off your electronic devices and take-off into the hills!
We stayed at Woshully Bungalow for 2 days. It was amazing, with coffee trees around, chirps n chatter of birds and lost in time. I was sceptical about food...but it was one of the best meals I have had in trips! the Kudagu cuisine is amazing and sumptuous. We went for a barbeque night and portions are enough for two meals!!A barbeque under the stars is a great experience. One can explore Kudagu from here-Kaveri Nisargathame, Madikeri, Tibetan Settlement, Dubbare etc..The stay is simple and warm service by staff makes it memorable
Coorg is heaven on earth and Woshully plantation trails made our stay even more worthwhile. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the service was impeccable. The staff was very courteous and the food was good. the bungalow is surrounded by coffee and green pepper plantations and extremely peaceful. If you are looking at a relaxing holiday this is the place to go to.
