How about you spend next weekend dining on a tree top with a bird’s eye view of lush green to the sound of gurgling streams.
Look down and wave at us; we‘re at Kurumba Village Resort, a rustic-luxe hotel in Conoor that offers everything that Mumbai does not, most specifically, peace.
Named after the Kurumbas, a forgotten tribe, the resort is a tribute to the ancient clan that co-existed with nature in this hot spot of bio-diversity. This translates to a resort built entirely of natural materials in a 10 acre former spice plantation, without cutting a single tree. Stay in a tribal style cottage or suite, surrounded by jacaranda, rosewood and backwood trees, while you get high on the aromas of nutmeg, pepper and cloves.
When you’re done being a tree hugger, head to their Ayurshala spa with a view where you can meditate or sign up to balance your chakras. And definitely, definitely sign up for Kurumba’s 7 course traditional meal served on a banana leaf; they have a seriously souped up orange pepper rasam that you shouldn’t go home without.
