Experience the stunning natural beauty of South India from the comforts of a modern, luxuriously built homestay within a coffee estate in Mallandur, Chikmagalur, housing two geodesic glamping (glamorous+camping) Domes, a Scandinavian-style duplex Chalet, a Gleaming Cabin made of mirrors and a Vintage Bungalow, all in one countryside compound. Seldom would you find such hospitality structures erected in the lap of nature, housed in the middle of a charming hilly village, opening up to the views of a lush valley below.
Immerse yourself in the breathtaking views of the mountains, an endless valley, and a rich green coffee estate as you float above the clouds in your futuristic, yet cosy abode. The Domes and the Gleaming Cabin make for a perfect romantic getaway replete with bonfire evenings and an intimate outdoor dining area. The Chalet, perfect for a group of 2-4 persons, is an experience in itself. While the Bungalow is perfect for family and friends looking to spend some fun times together.
You can book these separately depending on the kind of holiday you’re taking or book them together depending on your group size. What’s more, all of this is only a short drive away from Bengaluru.
Authentic Malanad meals in a beautiful setting

Fan of barbeques? Ask the host for a barbeque setup and relax soaking in the valley views and the cool breeze, while you roast away. The barbeque setup/ facility is available to property guests on a first-cum, first-served basis. Barbeque marination can either be self-prepared in your kitchenette or can be prepared by the in-house cook upon prior request and at a charge.
Experience a truly relaxing or even a romantic time in the jacuzzi, set overlooking the lush green valley outside the Gleaming Cabin. Just plant yourself in the hot tub for as long as you’d like, maybe also carry some fancy bath salts and aromatic candles, to set the mood just right! Please note that the jacuzzi is available only to the guests booking the Gleaming Cabin.
The property has a dedicated space for bonfires and we’d be happy to fire one up for you. Immerse in the warmth of the fire in the shroud of jackfruit trees, providing you complete privacy.
Jaadooghar Recommends: With the bonfire providing warmth during the cool night, you can lie down on the steps of the Bungalow next to the bonfire pit and indulge in star-gazing. Away from the smog-filled clouds of the city, Mallandur boasts a clear and star-filled night sky that is a sight to behold.
Awaken the trekkie in you and feel free to take hikes through the many trails that surround the property. You’d be surprised to see what you find here - dainty water streams, small and big farms, estates growing various kinds of coffee, fruits, pepper and much more. Walking through the village with the smell of mountain mist in the air is an indescribable experience.

HOUSE RULES AND THINGS TO NOTE
Please bear in mind that the property is a homestay in a remote village of Karnataka. While we strive to make your stay absolutely memorable, sometimes things here can take a bit longer than they would in a city. The nearest market is roughly a kilometre away where you can find provision stores for buying groceries and daily need items if you wish to cook in the kitchenette.
The property has an in-house chef, so if you do not wish to cook then meals can be ordered on the property separately upon one day’s advance notice. Authentic Malanad thalis are also available upon prior order.
Jaadooghar Recommends: Since the estate is located in an offbeat village perched on a hilltop, do carry some snacks and ready to cook items for your stay.
