Villa Urvinkhan, located in the Western Ghats of Chikmagalur, is where luxury meets the warmth of a home. The name Urvinkhan literally translates to “Dense Forest” as coffee plantations and lush greenery surround it.
It’s the perfect destination for whoever wants to take a break from the city life, and is seeking some fresh air, nature, hikes, or just a relaxed day by the homestay’s infinity pool. Yes, you read it correctly – an infinity pool in the middle of a plantation!
You will experience a blend of old world charm and modernity, as the amenities are all contemporary, especially the luxurious bathrooms, which have an open bath. There’s even a jacuzzi in the bathrooms! The rooms, however, take you way back with their four-poster beds, fireplaces, and wooden flooring.
Food wise, Villa Urvinkhan serves South Indian and continental breakfast and authentic Malnad cuisine (cuisine of Karnataka) for lunch and dinner. (We suggest you prepare for some indulgence.) Villa Urvinkhan also produces gourmet Arabica coffee and allows you to experience the plantation life. So if you’re a coffee person, you are going to be in heaven!
If you don’t want to laze or casually stroll around the property, the homestay organises various activities such as trekking, fishing, night walks, coffee plantation tours, cycling, hiking, and ATV trails. Or are you interested in wildlife? You might spot some Indian gaur, deer, peacocks, wild-boars, and plenty of different species of birds.
Whatever the purpose of your visit, Villa Urvinkhan is a crowd favourite!
