Evolve Back Chikkana Halli Estate

It was Evolve Back, formerly known as Orange County who put Coorg on the tourism map of the world with their flagship property and the first luxury resort in the region. Set in a hundred-year-old, 300-acre coffee and spice scented Chikkana Halli Estate in Coorg, the resort, is a real hideaway that promises seclusion and privacy. Drawing from the brand’s concept of the ‘spirit of the land’ the resort, provides exquisite holiday experiences around the coffee plantations and Kodava culture.

The luxury villas come in five variations with varying sizes, amenities and occupancies. All the villas are an epitome of luxury with a focus on authenticity and high levels of service and personalisation. The resort offers a plethora of dining experiences, including bespoke dining experiences to celebrate special occasions.

There’s a lot to explore within the resort: an exclusive infinity adults-only pool in a serene setting or the family pool with a toddler friendly zone for guests with families for a refreshing dip, the reading lounge for spectacular views and a leisurely read, or the Ayurveda Village for a relaxing massage. A coffee museum showcases the history of coffee cultivation and its journey from seed to cup and hosts a daily session on the art and science of gourmet coffee. And for those guests who can disengage from the sloth that this place oozes, there are outdoor experiences that include plantation trails on 4X4 or walks, birdwatching, coracle rides, and exploring curated trails on electric bicycles.
