Destination Kurumbadi

The place Kurumbadi might not ring a bell to most. But if one wants to get away, then there is no place like Kurumbadi and its lone resort middle of nowhere "The Kurumba Village Resort" . This resort has been on my list for last 8 years and I finally made it here in 2015. Was the wait worth it?

Over the past few years I have been visiting different parts of Nilgiris. But this resort just 14 kms downhill from Coonoor is a breath of fresh air not just literally!! Set amidst spice plantations  of cinnamon, nutmeg clove and pepper, the short drive towards the resort away from Conoor Mettupalayam road will give one the clue on what lies ahead. If one ever had a list, this is how it would look
- Panoramic view of dense jungle on rolling hills - Check
- Gurgling and gushing stream - Check
- Morning wake up call of sweetest song by the resident Malabar Whistling thrushes - Check
- Sound of your relaxed breath over the calm and stillness - Check
- Fun time playing donkey catch ball at the infinity pool with view of multiple waterfalls - Check
- Trek across the forest listening to stories including the appetite of elephants for jack fruits and do we see jack fruit trees around us- Check
- Your attention grabbed by  book to take you into a world you desire- Mine was filled with murder and multiple personalities - Check
- Clean fresh air that energies you into playing sports after a long break - Check
- A trail of footsteps left behind morning evening night going up and down the hills- Check
- Cut off from outside world without the crutches of cellphone - Check
- Pamper the soul of taste buds with the most appetizing cuisines from across the world- Check
- Minivets and Thrushes galore- Check
- Cozy comfortable clean cottages for good night's rest - Check
- Friendly support team always around to help you-Check

Yes , It was totally worth the wait! It is now one of my favorite resorts!
