Welcome to the Rainforest Retreat, an award winning eco-lodge that practices sustainable tourism and emphasizes environmental awareness. We are located on a certified organic spice farm (Mojo Plantation) in one of the most natural and scenic parts of Kodagu district (10 km north-west of Madikeri town).

Sustainability

We cater to environmentally conscious and intellectually curious travelers and families looking for a natural holiday experience. Special educational packages are available for student and farmers groups. Our unique cottages are of eco-friendly design and construction, and run on solar energy. The delicious and wholesome meals are prepared using bio-gas from our gobar-gas plant.

They are set in a lush green surrounding of bamboo, banana, coffee, and orange plants and encircled by a crystal clear stream.  Each cottage has 2 independent bedroom units with attached western bathrooms  (with bathtub and hot water). All the cottages are powered by eco-friendly 12V solar lighting - there is no 220V current, television or telephones in the rooms. Wi-Fi is available at a zone nearby.

Spacious rooms and peaceful surroundings

 

The Plantation Cottage is a little more rustic and has two comfortable, independent rooms each with fireplace, solar lighting and attached western toilets. This secluded cottage is nestled 200 m (walking) inside the plantation so it may not be suitable for seniors or persons with walking difficulties. Please note that meals are now served in a common dining area so guests in the plantation cottage have to walk 300m to the deluxe cottage for all meals.

Tents are protected from the weather by extra roofing.
