For decades, in-the-know Bangaloreans have flocked to the region of Coorg, in the southwestern state of Karnataka, for its mist-shrouded rain forests, rolling coffee plantations, and off-the-grid vibe. Now, with the opening of Vivanta by Taj Madikeri, this undiscovered area has landed on the global traveler’s map. The seven-hour drive from the city may be long, but a glimpse of the staggering vistas from the open-air lobby provides an instant antidote—as do the 63 villas and suites. All are modeled after traditional Coorgi homes, with soaring vaulted ceilings, doors made from coconut shells, and picture windows that let the sun seep over the horizon at dawn. If you’re here to Zen out, the resort’s 180 acres hold plenty of soothing diversions, from clay-sculpting sessions at the outdoor pottery studio to deep-tissue massages at the tri-level spa.

Room to Book:

The stand-alone Premium Indulgence suites, spread out over 1,400 square feet, have large sunken living rooms and fireplaces.

Insider Tip:

Ask the staff to arrange a romantic dinner à deux in the secluded Buddha garden, adorned with lanterns and presided over by a statue of the noble one himself.
