Bangalore has tons of weekend getaway options inside a 300 km radius. Chikmagalore , the land of home-stays and coffee estates happens to be one such dreamy destination. This was on my travel checklist for a while now.
When The Serai invited me for a Women’s Day weekend to their ultra-luxurious resort located in Chikmagalore, there was only one thing to do – pack my bags. This required no prior planning ,a hard to believe itenary which included wining dinning and partying with eight other beautiful woman bloggers.
Post a 5 hour drive we reached The Serai. I knew the only thing I would be reporting will be the conjured images of the place. The expansive green property is dotted with cottages for rooms attached with private pools. Wooden interiors, tasteful décor with a garden view bathroom makes it a little difficult to leave the cottage and head out.
Oma their signature spa has to be my highlight of the weekend. Aroma therapy massages, scrubs et al. An absolute must for your stiff and sore muscles. I opted for the coffee scrub and walked out smelling like fresh berries after an hour of steaming and scrubbing.
Conversations, music, early morning bike rides, pool parties, estate tours on a tractor and coffee making on a cliff with incredibly talented , humorous and beautiful women is how I would summarize one of my happiest memories of a trip.
