Coffee Heaven, Coorg

Bird watching, exotic Coorg cuisine on a coffee plantation amidst pristine green hills.


Think of a place where you go to renew your soul, a place where you re-discover your life. Add pristine green hills and birdsong, cool, pure air, friendly hospitality and then you get to Coffee Heaven! This plantation stay in Coorg is on a coffee estate near Ammathi, it has a special place in my heart as the idea of Seek & Hide was born there. Generations of Micky Kalappa’s family have lived and farmed in this area but he was amongst the first to propagate the idea of plantation stay in Coorg. A stream on three sides surrounds this plantation stay, with alluvial sand deposits forming the land in between.


Started about 10 years ago with two cottages, Coffee Heaven now has four cottages. Each cottage has a bedroom, bathroom and verandah. The Timber Cottages have enclosed verandahs while the Coffee Cottages have open verandahs. The high ceilings with terracotta tiled roofs give it a spacious feel. Two of the cottages have twin beds while the other two are doubles. The cottages have been built simply to blend in with the surroundings. But they are comfortable and cozy with simple wooden furniture and warm colours. The bathrooms are modern and are supplied with hot water from the wood-fire fueled boiler. Three thatched gazebos near the cottages are used to serve meals while tea and coffee can be served at the cottage. Hammocks can be put up on request.


Food is a reason on its own for meat lovers to visit Coorg. Pork, wild mushroom and tender bamboo are stars of the cuisine in this plantation stay in Coorg. Rice-powder based breads are staples with meat or vegetable curries. Sapna, Micky’s wife is an outstanding cook and is also willing to customize food according to guests preferences. The hosts along with their two children and Micky’s parents live in the main house a couple of minutes away. Shy Vasu helps in serving the food and cleaning the cottages.

Although the details are important, it is Sapna and Micky who are at the core of the beauty of Coffee Heaven. Their unpretentious, warm and gracious hospitality make this plantation stay in Coorg a place that you long to return every time you go away.

    My wife and I had a hectic two week wedding spanning four cities and we were looking for a quiet place where we could completely relax and laze around. Just the setting of the place was enough to ease our minds. Away from the main roads, yet pretty accessible, it is set inside the estate owned by Micky and Sapna. The main house comes first and then come the rooms (which are independent cottages).The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, have the basic necessities and are extremely clean. The rooms are surrounded by trees and grass and a small stream. It is superlatively quiet except for the birds chirping. There are small thatched dining areas with table and chairs, where we could take our meals.

    Sapna or Micky made it a point to sit with us during our meals and make some very pleasant conversation. The only difficulty was in focusing away from the food because Sapna made some outstanding traditional Coorg dishes. They are also very knowledgeable about the tourist spots in Coorg, the pros and cons and can provide excellent directions. Completely rejuvenated after our four days break, we were ready to go back to the big bad world.

    Very good value for money holiday at Sandbanks. Gentle gracious Sapna and her husband Micky are always ready to help and guide you no matter what query you have. Vasu who serves food and looks after guests is very quiet but nice. Sandbanks is a place to take a break from every day stress and chill out. Everywhere you look, there is greenery and you can hear birds chirping. Take a stack of books, your favorite alcohol and enjoy it along with the mouth watering Coorgi dishes from Sapna\’s kitchen. Try out the famous Pandi curry which you have to request specially. The cottages are basic but well kept and clean. The bathrooms are modern, spotless and have plenty of hot water. Sandbanks is great for a non-fussy escape from the city.
