We had a lovely time at Orange County Coorg on 2 and 3 June 2012. Our accommodation was perfect, the staff and services excellent and the food very good indeed. Our only (minor) issues would be that the beer could be colder and the staff slightly less attentive - after the first day, we tired of regular calls to check on our well-being - not exactly a fault, though! This was our first trip to India and Coorg was an excellent place to start!

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 7th anniversary in a special way and we opted for the Private Pool Villa @ the Orange county. The booking was very easy and on the day of travel we got a call from the resort checking whether we were on the correct route and if we needed any directions. We being from bangalore and having travelled to coorg many a times, it was not difficult for us. The journey itself was eventful, thanks to a flat tire and some lousy service from RNS unit -2. We reached earlier than our check-in time, but missed out on the traditional welcome, allthough folks coming in after us did get. Deeksha from the front office was very sweet in getting us to feel relaxed and ensured we got the villa facing the lake. We were checked into PPV (private pool villa) 901. The place, to describe in one word - Enchanting!! It had one of the biggest pools with a deck for children (this I got to know from the staff!!), as compared to the other ppvs'. We had booked ourselves for a 2N3D package with all meals. We had our lunch at the peppercorn. the food was good and the staff were very courteous. That night we had dinner @ the Graze. Gagan was very helpful. With me being a late eater, he was nice to have some food sent across to the room. We were not interested in any of the activities and just wanted to relax - the pool - the bar - the shower and the bed is how we spent those two days! JOhn Peters and his team ensured nothing was amiss in the upkeep of the room.
One area of improvement that I can think of for OC is to have some better quality soaps, essential oils/scrubs, bath-tub solutions in the bathroom; was in fact quite surprised to see 'medimex' ;) allthough it is not so bad :). overall an excellent stay, though we missed our two daughters!

Room Tip: Rooms 901 - 909 offer a spectacular view of the lake, however a word of caution for couples - privac...

Dear Guest,

Greetings to you!

Thank you for your positive remarks on Orange County, Coorg and for elucidating in detail precisely what aspects of your stay at Orange County, Coorg you found appealing :).

As for our toiletries, we are in the process of improving the quality of the same. The soap provided currently in the bathrooms is ‘Mysore Sandal Soap’. This was a deliberate choice, sandalwood being synonymous with the state of Karnataka and in keeping with our ‘ethnic’ theme.

We wish to conclude by thanking you for your detailed feedback once again.

Warm Regards,

General Manager - Sales

Imagine waking up to the call of birds chirping and sipping hot cup of coffee in your private balcony amidst green coffee plantation. Our stay at Orange county coorg was a delight to savor for a life time. Right from the warm welcome we received whilst we checked in by our attentive hostess Neetu who kept track of our every single need to the ever smiling chef Siva Prasad who whipped up local delicacies specially for us, we were delighted to spend our three days at the resort. The evening cultural programs were amazing and gave us the feel of the locals and the walk in the resort amidst trees and birds was refreshing and peaceful with small philosophical quotes nailed on the trees, making one realise God's bounty to human beings i.e. nature - which was in abundance at the resort. The Management's initiative and focus on customer satisfaction thru preservation of nature and the local culture was very evident from every small detail being so wonderfully presented and attended at the resort. A must stay for every traveller who wishes to savour nature to the fullest...

I literally read reviews about every resort in Coorg area for my honeymoon and all it took to choose this resort was the initial communication with the Chennai Sales office. I was promptly responded to by Nirali Sanghvi and she was most hospitable in replying to my numerous queries.

On the day of my scheduled arrival, the resort reception desk called to know if we were on the right route from Mysore and were asking me to call them in case I faced some difficulties on way. Thanks to the cab driver, we did not face any trouble reaching the spot. As were the first guests to arrive on the day, we were not received with traditional Coorgi music. This was the only slip that OC did. It is suggested that the band party is made available from 10 AM in the welcome area so that guests don't miss out this first step into the resort. What followed next was wet towels and a yummy cold coffee. We were then taken to our room (county cottage) by one of the executives and she briefed us on all the resort/room facilities.

Rest of the three nights that we spent in the resort was an awesome experience. The activities offered in the resort ensure that guests feel no need to sneak out to see the nearby places of interest. All the guides (Pradeep, Naveen, Mahesh) for different walks organized in the resort were humorous, informative and at the same time gentle and polite. The room service needs a special mention here. While in other establishments, when a room service has to be begged; in OC it was the other way round :) I have to mention here Subramani who was behind us to ensure that our room was cleaned and all the eatables/ drinks refilled. He was also kind enough to take picutres of me and my wife.

Not to miss out the food spread in all the three restaurants inside the resort. One word - delicious. The compilmentary dinner @ Peppercorn was fantabulous.

Room was large enough for two people with a superb sit-out and a beautiful bath opening to a small garden.

It was also good to know that OC supports nearby villagers by educating and employing them. I also heard a lot from the staff that they are even encouraged to pursue higher education. The resort in addition to being luxurios is equally socially responsible by adopting nearby villages and in keeping the environement as much green as possible.

And if we are talking about OC, how can I miss the mention of 'Namaskara'. We missed the count of number of salutations we were given when we encountered every resort employee. And it just didn't end there. I received an enquiry call from the Chennai sales office executive Nirali a day after we checked out. How courteous of the staff to follow up and ask for feedback for improvements.

A decision that we will cherish for the rest of our life time.

The very prompt and enthusiastic response from sales office was our first positive communication with Orange County. The staff at the arrival and departure lounges were also very efficient and polite. The only problem we faced was long travel from Mumbai to the resort via Bangalore (Approx 12 hours.) Hope there is shorter route recommended when we come next time.The buggies were a great relief to tired legs and senior citizens especially after meals.

The hallmark of the Orange County experience was the hospitality and humility of the entire staff. We look forward to hear their traditional smiling 'Namaskara'. The immense love and respect the staff had for the Chairman, Directors and management was very obvious in their words and action. The staff strictly adhered to the "no individual tips' policy". Kudos to the management for their depth of involvement with the staff and achieving such high levels of staff and customer satisfaction. We could do with a few tips on that.
The housekeeping team was also very warm friendly and quick to attend any call at any time. The gesture of cleaning the room twice daily is highly appreciated. The chef and staff of Granary the restaurant that we frequented, offered very personalized super fast service. Despite a very large food spread, keeping an organic food counter was very thoughtful. The landscaping and ambience of the entire resort was superb. Maintaining the cleanliness and standards of such a vast property must be a difficult task. Hats off to the management and staff for this too. The different activities arranged for all age groups were informative and professionally done. We enjoyed the nature walk, fishing, bird watching, coracle ride etc. Being a dog lovers, we were touched to see Bruno's grave. The prayer hall on the property also offered peace and quiet.
Orange County Resorts should be a benchmark and a source of inspiration to many in the hospitality business.

Was recently at this resort.Happy to report that it's a beautiful and quiet holiday destination. Three restaurants offer varied fare including one pure veg with Jain food. Perhaps kids will bore after a bit ,but its perfect for couples and Seniors looking for Rest and Relaxation.
