Alpinia is not a resort. It is an estate stay amidst green rich coffee estate.A hideout, totally away from the buzzing life of metropoles. It is not designed to provide luxury dwelling.But you have all the comforts of clean room, TV, hot water, separate kitchen, ‘Hande Snan’, traditional way of heating bathing water in a concealed vessel using fire wood.

ALPINIA Estate Stay will introduce a dream come true experience. Situated in a valley, 15 KMs from Madikeri, has in store many surprises to be explored.

It has a main house and a cottage nestled inside a coffee estate. The main house has two rooms and an attic. One room has an attached kitchen. The low roofed Attic is a perfect place to sleep tucked inside the blanket, play cards, carom board, snake and ladder or so. It’s also a perfect place to enjoy tea, coffee or any other drinks of your choice! The main house can take a crowd of 25.

The Cottage, few meters away from the main house has a twin room with an attached bath overlooking a stream with a mini water pond.


ALPINIA has other activities to keep the guests engaged for full day in the same surrounding.

BURMA BRIDGE provides an exciting walk from tree to tree on the rope.

TREE TOP NET will take you near the chirping birds where you can relax, twenty feet above the ground!

PARAGOLA is a place to escape with books or music n a cup of coffee…
The SILENT WATER STREAM and a natural mini pond invite everyone to play, splash and watch.

TREKKING inside the sloppy eleven acre Coffee Estate or through the country side will rejuvenate your energy. You may bump against rare plants, trees or birds in the course.

OPEN SHOWER in the yard will be fun after a sweating walk or trekking.


You have to drive fifteen kilometers from Madikeri to reach ALPINIA. (Transportation will be organized to those who travel by bus. The first 9 kilometers is a state highway towards Siddapur.

After the 9th kilometer turn to right towards KATLEKAD (Paisary) The sign board on the road side says ‘Maragodu, 9 KMs). (For easy location, enquire for the estate of ‘SHAKTHI’ newspaper owners as local people are not familiar with the name ALPINIA.)

Splendid scenery will enthrall your short drive here. You will meet a ‘Y’ junction after 2 kilometers. Take the left road. If you have not experienced driving inside a valley, this road awaits your arrival. The last 2.5 kilometers is thrill filled with curve and sloppy.

There is another approach which will be 24 kilometer s to reach. That road comes from Maragodu. It is again an experience to drive the last eight kilometers inside forests and estates. The route is Madikeri, Hakathur, Maragod, Hoskeri, Kathlekad.
