We chose Chingaara because it is near the highest point in Kodagu. The arrival was dramatic as we had to leave the car near the highway and be transported up the steep hill track in the estate jeep.
The location is sylvan, surrounded by coffee estates and the rooms are reasonably spacious. There is a main building and a second one. We stayed in the second building, a little away and we thought the view was better.
Sharath, the owner, is an affable gentleman and his staff are friendly and eager to serve. The food is a fixed buffet, quite good and there was sufficient change in the menu during our two nights stay.
We had gone for rest, so we did not explore the extreme treks. We did walk up to Honey Valley, the neighbouring property which is Sharath's father's. It is more of a resort and very beautiful.
Our grouse was that most of the time there was no electricity. As it was quite hot, we suffered the lack of a fan! The estate does have a generator but as its operation did not match our sleeping times, we had a bad time.
