About the Home

  • Dating back to the 1890's, this heritage home in Coorg is spread across 6,000 sq.ft. Located amidst a verdant landscape, it is 288 kms from the Kempegowda International Airport making it an ideal weekend getaway near Bangalore.
  • With 4 bedrooms including a cottage, one can either book the entire home or book it room-wise making it suitable for larger groups as well as couples. 
  • Appreciate the colonial times? The classy interiors, a library in the living area and lawns with colourful flowers lend a characteristic English vibe to the villa.
  • In an endeavour to promote sustainability, SaffronStays Calamondinn Bungalow has everything that makes it an eco-friendly home. For starters, there is a 10kw solar power plant, which helps run the lighting, borewells and appliances. Alongside the LPG, the wet waste goes into a biodigester for producing cooking gas; similarly, the plastic used is sent for recycling and reuse. 
  • High on all-things-organic, there's an in-house production of milk and honey along with homegrown herbs. That's not all. The organic veggies are sourced only from the local market.
  • In the presence of the homeowner, you can learn more about bees and beekeeping and if your group consists of 8+ guests, he can also conduct a special masterclass to help you learn the tricks of the trade of baking.
  • Being a working coffee plantation, you can opt for an assisted tour on request, and savour a freshly brewed cuppa with breakfast. 
  • Post 11 pm when the city lights go down, or on New Moon night, you can spot the Milky Way.
  • Impeccable hospitality by our housekeeping staff and home-cooked meals by our cook will make your stay unforgettable.

    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

    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!

    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.
