The real world, in my opinion, exists in the countryside, where Nature goes about her quiet business and brings us greatest pleasure.

Aromas of the South

With the aromatic scent of morning filter coffee filling the air, lose yourself in the exotic and sylvan ambience of versatile and colourful Karnataka.  Basking in the glory of its illustrious past during the reign of the Hoysala Empire, the region offers a journey of a lifetime, filled with culture, nature, ancient architecture and, of course, coffee. Be it elaborate temple architecture, the serenity and beauty of cloud-kissed hilltops, or the freshness of coffee and spice plantations, this is your own tryst with all things exotic and artistic. Settle yourself into the lap of nature; into the heart of South India…soak in the flavour-filled aromas of the south.
