The first view of Vivanta Coorg

Hiya Everyone. 🙂

A few days back I asked for suggestions for travel places in India on my FB page. I got a lot of options and Coorg was one of them. I don’t know what clicked but I started searching for Coorg and hotels in Coorg. Since Sanjeev and I have been a fan of Taj properties in past, we discovered that Vivanta has opened its new property a few months back here. We were decided. Coorg it was. 😀

Our trip started on a very patchy note today. While stepping out the strap of my vanity bag came off. Very small glitch . But the worst happened at the airport. A policewoman mishandled my Cavali bag and broke the chain. 🙁 I got super upset. Somehow we fixed the chain. Then we got to know that the Air India flight would go via Chennai. So rather than a 2 1/2 hour flight , it would be around 4 hour flight. No prior info was given on that front. Anyway, so it were to be a 6 hour drive to the Taj property but it took around 8. 😛 I had totally made up my mind that this trip would be super choppy.

And then we stepped into Vivanta by Taj, Coorg. And Everything changed. The gorgeous lobby, the endless view of the property and the awesome staff. The best was yet to come. We stepped into our private Pool Villa. I guess I won’t say much now. Please go through the pics. This is just Day 1 or let’s say just the evening. Wait for a lot to feature in coming days. I can’t wait to see the morning from our lavish private balcony. This place is a dream come true. 🙂

Oh! our dinner was unquestionably good. 🙂

      • sandhya says:

        it is the season of discounts rati di!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 (poor ppl problems) plus we are getting a vacation only then! and with my toddler there is not much of exploration that we can do so we would probably mostly stay indoors and enjoy the rains!!!!!!!!!
