Heritage Resort – Hampi A Resort not to be missed!
One comes to Hampi as a serious traveller. A traveller who would appreciate the magnificent temples, to soak into the magnitude and splendour of it’s history. And to complement this setting, one needs to choose an equal substitute to rest your head on.
After a long and tiring day of Hampi sightseeing, what one wants is a peaceful relaxing place to put your feet up. We found the perfect place in Heritage Resort Hampi, about 7 Kms away from the main attractions in a village called Hosa Malapanagudi. Tucked between cool mango and coconut trees, and outside the hustle and bustle of the tourists.
#Heritage Resort Hampi, is a part of India Asia hotels with other hotels in Coorg. Although only five years old, it looked pretty established and grounded in it’s environment and principles.
The ethos of the Resort is to be an organic, eco friendly and a sustainable place and for the guests to live in it. To employ locals who take pride in the place and to use organic produce of the farm is what makes this place unique.
Blending seamlessly with the traditions and modernity, the reception area welcomes you, and you know you are in the right place! A soothing water feature, and a traditional rangoli artwork is an example.
Modern luxury essentials in your room with a relaxing poolside surrounded by mango laden trees make a perfect setting for a cocktail or two. Do not miss the Happy hour if you are in early!
I was very kindly given a tour of the organic farm by Mr Manu, the Operations Manager who explained and showed me around the organic and eco friendly system from soil to produce preservation. Farm to table on show! Inherited mango and coconut trees and other fruit and vegetables grown in abundance, all curated with love and pride. This was quite evident in the dishes we tasted in the kitchen too.
Talking of the kitchen, I could not resist and had to ask for a visit and see how the organic produce is converted into delicious delicacies. I was lucky to have Mr Ramesh, their corporate Chef who took me around and along with him and Chef Vikas demonstrated two amazing local dishes using their organic produce. I will have to dedicate another blog on this culinary experience, so watch the space!
Overall, this is a relaxing resort which offers a corporate yet friendly atmosphere, an organic culinary experience, an Ayurvedic spa. You need to just book it! Don’t forget to add some extra days though.
