Evolve Back Chikkana Halli Estate,Coorg

Coorg Valley


Bordered by the river Cauvery, Evolve Back is situated amidst a 300-acre working coffee and spice plantation, in a place often referred to as India’s Scotland. Famous for its coffee, rubber and spices, a stay here is equivalent to that of a colonial planter’s lifestyle. Imbibe its aromas infused with a rich cultural history and living traditions; and relax within its villas and lawns with old growth trees. Cropping seasons play a large part in Coorg’s life ensuring a variety of harvest festivals. You can take a guided tour of the working coffee and spice plantation and try your hand at pruning or harvesting. Go bird watching with the resident naturalist or experience the rhythms of local life in the neighbouring Karadigodu village. Alternatively, ask to visit one of a number of National Parks and Sanctuaries in striking distance of the lodge, including Nagarhole and Bhramagir...i.
  • Choose between a large communal pool and an exclusive infinity pool; go for a plantation or nature walk, bird watching, coracle ride, or a village visit by cycle. Trips can be arranged to Bylekuppe, the second largest Tibetan settlement outside Tibet, complete with a monastery, a Golden temple and a flea market.
  • There are 55 luxurious accommodation options - Lily Pool Villas, Private Pool Villas, Lily Pool Bungalows and Lily Pool Cottages – spread out in clusters around this working coffee and spice plantation, which are inspired by ethnic Kodava architecture.
