Elite homestays in Chikmagalur

Holidaying is a personal experience and many of us who are living in this current tech savvy world come across lot of options for exploring places. The most important factor to determine the quality of any destination is their accommodations and facilities and ease finding information for room reservations. We appreciated the services offered by TravelMalnad in offering the best in class holiday experience at a homestay in Malnad Region. The skepticism on the hospitality offered by homestays is wiped out the moment we landed on the website. We were taken aback with the kind of facilities available at their home stays and the ease of doing a reservation online.

Our trip was planned to Chikmagalur and hence the journey with Team TravelMalnad began with a positive note. These guys are a cut above the rest and the homestays listed on the site are extremely good. When inquired about the process we came to know how the cherry picking of holiday planners are made. The team travels in the trails of these places and figures out which are the homestays who offer top notch hospitality services with professional hosts. Later once they are back in office they connect with all their registered users and give a hint on the exploration.

Thus we also came across this fantastic service provider from our colleague who is a regular visitor to Malnad homestays. Frankly speaking, the name Malnad itself was new to us and slowly we opened up to the beauty of its natural resources with the awesome doorway called TravelMalnad. What more could be demanded in a holiday? Good accommodation, tasty food, nice host, adventure activities, campfire in the evening, barbecue, dance & music… It was beyond our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed each and every services offered to us.

The best part of these elite homestays in Chikmagalur is the natural surroundings. Coffee estates, water streams, water falls, mountains, plantations, scenic atmosphere… all that is offered on a platter to feast for the visitors. A photography enthusiast will never miss to take thousands of pictures before departing the place. We strongly recommend you to visit for more malnad destinations and best homestays.

Pretty pictures do not make a destination but experiences!!!

The tourism promotions in India dates back to several years and the marketing or PR teams of different organizations constantly work hard to promote a hotel or destination. The idea of promoting any destination could be dependent on group of people or companies or ad agencies that come together and depict a destination. The more we dwell on how to market a destination the better to get creative mindsets.

Magic of Malnad greenery in rejuvenating souls

The sky was clear, the land was green everywhere, roads were good and we were driving amidst the Malnad region in Karnataka which is the paradise on earth for nature lovers. It was spring season and a new life, new beginning for all of us. We had taken a break from our routine and mechanical work life and hit roads exploring the glory of nature. Why we chose Malnad as our destination? This was our much debated and discussed topic before the start of our travel.

We will be honest with you. Our team is one of the senior most software engineers’ team in a leading MNC in Bangalore. Our work schedule demands us to be on our toes all the time clearing project leads and executing projects internally in the organization. The team was overwhelmed with the work pressure and wanted a break to unwind ourselves. Thus came the idea of doing a trip any of the top destinations in Karnataka.

We did a lot of research on this topic and everyone had different perspective about holidaying. Some were keen on a beach holiday place and some voted for coffee estate and some were neutral and ready to blend in for any holiday plan. Thus we concluded the Malnad as our destination of travel with places recommended by team. The expert team at TravelMalnad helped us a lot by providing us meticulous details of travel planning to even taking routes while in Malnad.

The best part about TravelMalnad was not responding like typical travel companies but with lot of care and true reasons to help us and make our trip a great one. We all congratulated them heartily for this fantastic trip for us. Once we were on the move we realized how important it was to have contacted the right people who are domain experts. We all have come back to work with a great deal of enthusiasm and fully charged. We are definitely going to make a revisit to the places we have covered in Malnad.

The holidaying experience is made more simplified and affordable with the introduction of home stay services in Karnataka. Large chunk of travelers of today’s world mostly prefer to stay at a homestay to experience the ethnicity of the place rather than just indulge in amenities offered by bigger resorts. There are a handful of best and yet priced with affordable tariff homestays situated in and around Chikmangalore. The recent survey done internally by our company states clearly, that the upcoming hot destination is Chikmagalur which is offering all categories of accommodation and activities to tourists.

The hill station terrains of Chikmagalur make it more glamorous for the eyes of travelers who visit for exploring the area.  Hundreds of thousand acres of Coffee Estates in Chikmagalur region has been a god gift for those enterprising hospitality providers who have created mind blowing homestay services.

Coorg hill station terrains with my new vehicle

I am a travel enthusiast who has covered lengths and breadths of the country on road. Now since I’m settled down in Bangalore it has become common for me to visit Malnad region almost every weekends. The work schedule I’m put through literally demands for a complete revival once in a while. Looking for a reason to head out of Bangalore was, this time my new Toyota Fortuner. I love this vehicle as its suitable for all terrains and I wanted to stretch the muscle of this vehicle on a highway as well as visit some really cool place to take some stunning pictures of it.

Me and my family this time planned to visit Coorg or Kodagu in Karnataka. I assume that many of you are already aware of this place and have travelled at least once. What makes this trip different is I was driving my new car and have opted to take TravelMalnad as my stays provider. Both these unique elements gave us a memorable holiday experience.  We all were skeptic that we were choosing TravelMalnad for the first time as recommended by our good friend Mr Goel. Once we started working on the planned we realized that TravelMalnad scores ahead of any company in the industry in professionalism and transparency.

I chose to stay at their deluxe homestay and also a star category resort in Kodagu. Both the properties were awesome and our entire family gave positive feedbacks. To be honest some of the new places that we explored were really awesome. The travel experts helped us not just book homestays in Kodagu but to plan our itinerary with a lot of precision. The greatest pleasure of exploring my vehicle at a lush green destination came true and memorable. We recommend all those who want to explore coorg to take a look at and book your holiday without any hassles.

Agri-Tourism in Malnad Region of Karnataka

Agriculture is the backbone of our country; we all know this fact and taking a glimpse at this magnificent process will be a thrilling experience. Many children living in the cities are not exposed to the agriculture and some of them wonder when they visit a paddy field or a coffee estate during our holiday trips. We take immense pleasure in promoting Agri-Tourism as a special package for those who love to spend time the agriculturist’s way during the holiday. It would look simple but if you dwell on it further you will realize that it consists all the science and technology which the modern world has embraced.

In the today’s world, being an agriculturist is not the same as it used to be in the past. The days are gone where you had abundant labor force. Now one needs technology to handle a huge estate or do cultivations on paddy fields. The reality has come to a point where the agriculturist has become an innovator and started designing, manufacturing equipment on his own. There are several classic examples for innovative equipment designed in Malnad region some of them are Areca Dehusking machine, Pepper Dehusking machine, Areca bunch separator, Coffee Cultivation Machines…
