Had a wonderful time - peaceful stay, amidst coffee plantations, delectable home-cooked food, and great hospitality!
Overall we had a pleasant stay. The staff were accommodating and took care of our needs. The owners of the villa however were not very hospitable. They didn’t really speak to us unless we probed, or ask specifics. That made us hesitant to ask for anything extra.
The bungalow is very well maintained and clean. Rooms are quite spacious. Food was delicious. Really loved the coffee. There is limited outdoor seating arrangements.
Great experience. Thanks.
Arjun and the entire staff at Calamondinn were super hospitable. The meals were exemplary and the rooms were spacious. The property is a dream for anyone seeking a couple days of quiet and relaxation.
Nice, cozy and homily place to stay. Food are fabulous. Cleanliness and hygiene are maintained. Altogether a very nice experience.
Nice property, very peaceful. Enjoyed the stay. Hosts were great
We went to calamondinn with a 2 year old kid , she loved it there and we had a great time. Host is very welcoming and warm, our first experience in a home stay was very pleasant.
We had a great time , would love to keep coming back to This place ..Arjun and the other caretaker staff are so warm and hospitable .
Home away home. Nicely done villa in middle of coffee plantations…perfect place to stay and relax… the hosts are so welcoming and helpful. Arjun ensures the stay is all comfortable and helps in planning your itinerary.. trust me its worth taking tips from him.. his mom is also very affectionate and caring. Her deserts were to die for (caramel custard was my fav.). I used to always sneak extra from refrigerator. All in all memorable stay and trip. Do note that property is South of Coorg so you need to travel some distance to reach hilly/ tourist points but with that lovely green drive amongst plantations, one can afford that.
Had a wonderful time at Calamondinn Villa. The house is one of the best ones we have stayed at. Arjun and his mom, along with the rest of the staff were perfect hosts and always available for any of our requirements. Appreciate it.
Superb stay! Arjun, mom and their support staff is super amazing. If you are looking for a stay away from city life and enjoy quiet time pls consider Calamondinn. Internet connectivity is 6MBPS which can be an issue if there are multiple users staying. Overall 5/5!
Had a great experience. Arjun masti is a great host. Would love to visit again
Overall it was a pleasant and peaceful stay
Really Amazing Place surrounded by coffee plantation. Owners are very friendly and knowledgeable. Perfect to relax away from the busy chaos of city living into the nature.
Beautiful estate, great food and friendly hosts. You'll definitely have a memorable time at Calamondinn ðŸ™ðŸ½
Arjun and his family are fantastic hosts who go out of the way to ensure a wonderful stay. We especially enjoyed the food and looked forward to dinner there everyday!
Beautiful place in coorg. A must try if ever traveling around Karnataka
Our stay at Calamondinn is one to remember. We had a wonderful stay: The food was exceptional. Very tasty, flavourful and a variety; every bit the home cook meal one enjoys. Arjun gave us a tour of the coffee plantation and told us about the history of the 130 year old bungalow which by the way was very well maintained. We also had a nice BBQ one of the evenings!
The bungalow is great- very well maintained and has an old world Victorian charm to it. The plantation is lovely and green and walks around it are quite pleasant. The food is really fantastic both in terms of taste and quality. However a few things to mention 1. It’s a small property - the property doesn’t really have a view and very little space around it- don’t expect to roam around inside the property or enjoy a view from the rooms 2. The water body is not inside the property- somehow we got the impression that it’s part of the property but actually it more than half a km walk from the property gate 3. The hosts live inside the property and while quite professional and prompt, you can’t really call them warm or spontaneous. A bit of language issues with other staff members. Overall , a pleasant stay.
Hi Saikat, Thank you for your wonderful review. We strive to maintain the quality of food and cleanliness as always. Ever since Covid-19, our staff and us have been training to maintain distance and take precautions. We can't really do the things we love such as socialise or entertain with guests like we used to anymore. South Coorg isn't really known for the steep elevations that the western part of the Western Ghats are known for - all you'll see around are tall trees, no valleys, yes! Thanks for mentioning about the pictures making it seem that the lake is within the same compound as our bungalow (it's on another estate of ours down the road) will ask for the changes to be made by Saffronstays. We loved having you over! Take care. :)
Excellent stay, excellent food and great hosts! This is one of the best homestays we’ve been to. An old bungalow, well maintained - spic and span inside out with large spacious rooms and in a peaceful location is an ideal place to relax and unwind. And to top it all the hosts allow you your privacy and cook some amazing local delicacies. Highly recommended!
This place is very peaceful and well maintained.... Food was to die for. Staff are very polite and sweet. If you are looking for a place away from city and into the wild look no more.
Really good food and a great property to stay with the family.
Staff : lovely, lovely people. Our host was arjun and he was a chilled out guy who was a great host, made us feel we lived there! Meals : honestly, the best meals I've had in any resort. I always prefer to eat outside when staying somewhere, but the breakfast and dinner were absolutely wonderful. Made us sad that they dont serve lunch as well! When you're here, do not order in dinner or breakfast. Their cooks are magnificent Safety : the first place we had felt there was no need to lock our doors when stepping out. Cleanliness : not a speck of dirt anywhere. Simply the perfect resort
Well.maintained quaint home stay
Was here for some time off, with my family. It was a pleasant stay, amidst nature, off the city's hustle and bustle. The rooms were well maintained, clean, and super spacious, and the interiors tastefully done to give a vintage feel. The hosts, Mr. Arjun and his family, and the staff ensured that we felt comfortable. The food, especially the hot akki rotis (rice flatbreads) were delicious. The walk around the coffee estate, honey making on site were informative and interesting to see. Brandy, Burtie and Alexa made our stay even more enjoyable. ðŸ¾ Overall, it's a quaint bungalow to, close to nature that's makes for a great stay. :)
Calamondinn Bungalow is a beautiful, quaint property nestled away in the woods. Me and my wife stayed there for 5 nights and had a delightful experience. A few notable things: 1) The property is a 125 year old colonial bungalow. It has a rustic charm that grows on you. The rooms are huge and you can also sit around the living area. 2) Arjun and his mom are gracious hosts and they did everything to ensure our stay was comfortable. 3) The food was delicious. We had many authentic Coorgi style dishes which were phenomenal, but even the English desserts were amazing. 4) Arjun gave us a lot of tips on which places to cover on our day off and helped us plan the itinerary, as well as contact a reliable and knowledgeable driver who showed us around. 5) We were on a Workation i.e. we were working remotely but also got to enjoy on weekends. 6) Wifi connectivity is good, but due to remote area bandwidth may be a problem. Vodafone has zero connectivity but Jio works fine. 7) Powercuts are frequent, but there are UPS-powered charing points in Living area. Keep your phones / laptops charged whenever there's power. Overall, it was a beautiful holiday for the two of us. P.S. The filter coffee in the morning and evening comes from their own plantations. If you are a coffee lover, you will absolutely love it.
Absolutely brilliant place! Have nothing to complain about, and everything to rave about. The property is absolutely gorgeous, and maintained extremely well. The food was authentic and brilliant! The staff was very well trained and courteous. This was a perfect getaway from the hectic lives we have, and going back after 1 week of recharging here! Definitely coming back again! :)
We had the most amazing time, a beautiful heritage property with the most agreeable hosts Arjun and his mom, Devika. Everything was excellent, fantastic food and endless lovely filter coffee’s. The property is located amidst the lush coffee plantations and it was wonderful waking up to the sounds of several birds, serene and peaceful. Perfect place to switch off and relax especially if you haven’t had a break from your bustling city life. We shall surely return soon. Thank you Meena & Narendra
Had an absolutely wonderful time at this homestay! Arjun and his mom go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need at all times. The food was way better than we expected. The property was beautiful and well maintained. It exceeded our overall expectations.
We had a lovely time at Calamondinn. The best part of the stay was the food and free flowing conversations. The host go above and beyond in taking care of you. And the bungalow is immaculate and very thoughtfully decorated. You can spend some time admiring every piece of furniture there is. Arjun is a perfect host, with some lovely dogs and can answer all your questions. Kudos to him in managing everything so well. Come for the location and stay for the hospitality.
It was an Amazing stay for us.... Upkeep of each and everything was at top priority.... Especially the food was the at its best.... thanks to arjun and his mom for such a nice hospitality.....
Saffronstays is a nice cozy bungalow tucked away amidst the greeneries of pepper & coffee in Gonikkopal, coorg. We were 8 of us and we were allotted ooms accordingly. However what was most disappointing was the way pets are treated here, though this property says they are pet friendly. We were allotted a room which is outside the main bungalow as we have a pet dog with us and the dog is not supposed to enter the main bungalow etc etc(meaning a lot of restrictions were imposed on the pet), though they claim to be pet friendly. This is something which the homestay authorities need to relook. You cannot claim to be pet friendly on one hand and lay rules like this which is completely annoying to the pet owners. This kind of jekyl and hyde behavior cannot work. It has to be an all or none affair with pets. We have been to luxury properties like Taj and the pets have been treated wonderfully there. Morover you also charge 2000/- as sanitising charges of the property and the lady in the bungalow (Mrs Devika) was not at all amused when we asked for pet food like curds/boiled veggies/Eggs etc. Let me tell you, the quality and taste of food served was amazing, though communication from Mrs. Devika leaves a lot to be desired. We had to literally tell her multiple times that we need eggs for breakfast. These kind of things do make a difference in us returning to the property for another holiday. I think the caption of " Where families bond" didnt work with us as we felt that communication from her was bad.
Good Stay, great host, and really good food. The food is high quality.
An amazing property with amazing food! The pudding was the best! Already planning to go back.
The place is impeccably clean and the food is really good. The caretakers commintment towards their hospitatily is very evident. We hope in the future lunch is also available at the bungalow itself. Although I have nothing to complain about, however, I do believe the experience can be improved. The bungalow needs perhaps a book/booklet which the visitors can go through to get know the bungalow and the property around. The estate tour was certainly missing and even here I believe a booklet serving to self-tour, visitors can tour around the estate by themselves with the help of the booklet at some specified timings. I would also add an booklet towards the everyday things that goes into maintenance of such a beautiful property. Of course, these can be more personal if the caretakers can spend time with the guests, however I do not see this to be practical so I have suggested a booklet

The property had a rich legacy and very beautiful. The family who owns the property were very helpful and warm people. They made us feel at home in first interaction itself. So looking forward to visiting again in future. A true home away from home.
We had a fun time at Coorg property. Excellent hosts and great food.
Was a relaxing and lovely stay at Clamondinn Bungalow. Arjun and his mum are the quintessential graceful hosts and their staff were super helpful and polite. The bungalow's old world charm grows on you, add to it the delicious home cooked meals, walks in the green clean surroundings...and you have the perfect weekend getaway. Thankyou for everything!
We had an amazing stay and enjoyed every bit of it. Host is really good helped us in planning out our days, great meals. Loved it and will visit it again for sure
Great food, great staff, very well maintained cleanliness and overall a great stay and experience
A one of a kind experience with a serene environment around you and authentic mouth watering kodava cuisine to savour it with. From the Coffee plantations beside you to the feeling of going back in time with the colonial architecture of the Bungalow, the place has so much to offer.
I enjoyed my stay. Nice homely meals.
Wonderful place, courtesy. Food can have more local flavours Specific items were super delicious, thanks a lot - Pandi prep(dry), flat beans, sannas, bar beq , chkn dry. Coffee aroma was lovely. Everyone was so courteous and helpful.
Excellent property, Owner and Staff. It has a tick in all boxes, Glad that we had a decision to stay at Calamondinn Bunglow. Each one of our requests were listened to and attended to. We asked for packed lunch on our way back and were happily heard and attended to. Big YES to this place
Excellent hosts and great atmosphere. Very friendly and serene place and loved the overall experience. Would definitely recommend this place and visit many more times !
Incredible is the word .. Incredible place .. incredible food .. Amazing hosts who treat you like family .. The bungalow is very well kept , sparkling clean and hygienic bathrooms .. The food is best part of the stay .. every meal served is amazingly delicious
Great stay. Would definitely recommend
Had a peaceful and enjoyable weekend break at Calamondinn.
We stayed at Calamondinn bungalow between the 25th and 27th of May. We were a group of 6 people and right from the booking on wards everything was handled very professionally. The property is quaint and beautiful, and the hosts are always available should you need them. Food was great. Would definitely recommend this place as a weekend getaway
