Situated on the crown of a knoll and lush with a profusion of tropical forest vegetation, inspired by the dictum that less is more, Coffee Routes is the best place to explore the beauty of Thekkady. Here, the more that we allow nature to thrive unfettered, the greater will be the rewards that nature bestows. The predominant theme of the property is that of coffee with the names of the rooms and facilities named after different species of coffee plants and varieties of coffee. A tarmac road winds up the slope. An open to the air lobby is situated beside the road. Inside the seats are hewn from rock found in the area. The 4 acre property has been designed so that only 1.5 acres is built up space with the landscape contain a fascinating variety of trees, flowering and medicinal plants adhering to the 'Star Forest' concept that defines a tree for every star in the astrological constellations. Coffee Routes is indeed an authentic experience of nature the way nature meant it to be.
The rooms at Coffee Routes are classified into Coffee Bungalow and Coffee Bean Club House. Here all the rooms have balconies with views of the landscaped slope, the trees in a neighboring plantation and on one end views of a swimming pool and a stone paved tank fed by a natural spring. Outside, adjacent to the main block, on one edge of the knoll is a cluster of twin floored cottages overlooking the swimming pool and tank below. The view from the balconies in the cottages is truly stunning, looking down at the pool on one end and across a stretch of fields, the distant mountains on the other.
