Have your own private cottage at the Rainforest Retreat. Enjoy the luxury of a simple life with clean air, pure water, beautiful surroundings and a negligable carbon footprint. Our secluded, self-service, 'FARAWAY COTTAGE' overlooks a beautiful densely forested valley and comes with kitchen facilities and western bathroom with a traditional fire- hot water system.


Ideal for artists, writers, photographers and just about anyone wanting to experience peace and solitude and sustainable living.


This is a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area either on foot with our self guided maps or hire one of our cycles. We are connected by bus to Madikeri. One can also join into any of the meals and/or activities such as treks and plantation tour at the retreat by paying extra.

Available on monthly or weekly rental. A spacious furnished double room is available for Rs 7,000/week on 'self-service' basis - perfect for backpackers. Enquire for details.



This eco-cottage is also powered with 12 V solar lighting. Charging and Wi-Fi facilities are available at central area.
