A Stay-cation/Vacation is a holiday that we take to rejuvenate or to run away from the mundane hustle bustle of the city life. I would always choose a place that is less stressful and serene because I not a tourist. The traveler in me always wants to relax and unwind. A posh hotel with posh amenities doesn’t entice me anymore. The more sustainable and Eco-friendly the place is, the more appropriate for me.
Most of the places in and around Coorg wasn’t reasonable and the ones that you find online are mostly luxury properties. After a lot of research and surfing we finalized on the Coorg Jungle Camp Backwater Resort which is situated in Kushalnagar and overlooks the Harangi Reservoir. This was a nature resort with birds chirping, pet dogs on the lake and water gushing. Quite a tranquil ambiance and filled with green foliage in every corner.

My Experience in the Coorg Jungle Camp Backwater Resort
We were welcomed by the manager of the resort who patiently showed us around the property and shared the timings and other important details about the activities that happens in the resort for all the house guests. The room tariff in this property includes breakfast and dinner which is amazing because sometimes in towns like these it gets difficult to find a place to eat. They also have a hi-tea time for all the in house gets in the resort around 5:30-6:30pm for tea, coffee and snacks at the dining area, with the view of the backwaters. And post that around 8:30pm, they have a band that comes in for live music and bonfire, A perfect setup for a chilly weekend evening. The resort has cottages and apartment like rooms accommodating on everyone’s budget.We stayed at the Nest Cottage that comes with a balcony, air conditioner, attached bathroom and a television. The balcony also had the view of the backwaters and the reservoir.
If you have plans of sight seeing around the city, the resort have fixed taxi charges based on the places that you want to see. Culinary experience wise, Kushalnagar doesn’t serve authentic Coorg Pork dishes like in Coorg. Otherwise, the platter of food that they serve in the breakfast and dinner buffed is reasonably appetizing with a vast option of dishes in both Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian section. The service and the staff are impeccable and attentive.
The Spa in Coorg Jungle Camp Backwater Resort sometimes have weekday discount offers on body spa, massages, facials etc. for all in house guests.
We stayed here for two nights and three days just relaxing and breathing fresh air.
The Coorg Jungle Camp Backwater Resort can never disappoint you! A perfect getaway for the holiday season. Well, do you even need a reason to go on a vacation!?
