Jade Hills - Coorg
 
   
Perched high on top of a hill, amidst verdant forest slopes, Jade Hills is the perfect getaway from the city. Commanding unparalleled views of the surrounding hills & countryside, there is not another building in sight to obstruct your view.

The cottages, designed by the architect-owners, are unique 'new-old' buildings. Lovingly built (out of burnt orange laterite blocks) using doors, windows and pillars, salvaged from traditional Coorg houses, the cottage offers snug rooms with fantastic views from every aspect, including the bathrooms! The bathroom is an experience by itself, with its partly open-to-sky ceiling and private garden. The house was also recently featured in the Indian Express paper for its unique style and sensitivity to local culture and traditions.

Nearby, the surrounding slopes & valleys opens up with great trekking trails, indigenous birds, natural streams, fragrant cardamom gardens and varied vegetation. Sit in the 'ambala' or gazebo, with a cup of tea, watching the sunset & you can rediscover the joys of living in the very lap of nature.
