The Best Place to Stay in India! Heck, In the WORLD!


Positives: Delicious food, gorgeous scenery, friendly hosts, truly relaxing place, a wonderful break from "hectic" India
Negatives: leeches in monsoon :(

Honey Valley is my favorite place in India! I arrived there my second week and immediately fell in love with the place, in spite of the leeches. The family who runs it are all kind and helpful. The people who work there are friendly and efficient. The scenery is to die for! Everything you ever wanted in a semi-tropical mountain paradise: huge trees shading coffee bushes, steep slopes covered in amazing plants, grasses and wild flowers, beautiful butterflies and crazy bugs (but not many mosquitos, and leeches are easy to deal with in the Monsoon months, really!)

If you love to hike/trek this is the place for you! They have a small guidebook to local walks from Honey Valley written by guests. All the walks take you to wonderful views of the Coorg Mountains and many beautiful rivers and waterfalls. Plus, the Estate dogs (Rocky, Goonda and little Julie) will often join you on a hike. There is a library to fill up those lazy afternoons and delicious coffee, too. The food is some of the best in India, served in a pleasant eating hall where you get the chance to meet the other guests. In the evenings you can enjoy a campfire outdoors!

Best of all perhaps, this is one of the more affordable places in India. There are lots of nice housing options and the meal prices are very reasonable.

I really cannot recommend this place enough. It should be on everyone's India itinerary!
