Holidaying in Kabini was a heart warming experience after a long needed break with Mom and Dad. The experience was soothing… reawakening….serene…. Taking my breath away and engulfing me in Nature’s majestic beauty.
Orange County is a luxury resort inspired by the theme of Hadis and the local Kadu Kuruba tribe. The resort has won many travel awards at National and International level for their cutting-edge leadership in environmentally friendly business practices and green technology.
We stayed in the Jacuzzi Hut. It was a nice cosy little cottage with a living, dining and a cool breezy sit out giving us a view of lush lawns and the beautiful Kabini reservoir.
The Jacuzzi pool was a good place to spend time to get a reflexology massage by placing my feet directly in front of the water jets stimulating blood circulation.
It is a high-pressure hydro massage that you direct to specific parts of your body simply by moving around and adjusting your body to receive the full force of the water. When running at full intensity, the jets can provide something akin to a deep-tissue massage, soothing aches and pains improving overall well-being and mood. You come out feeling relaxed & refreshed.
The food was awesome! I enjoyed every bit of it. There was a wide spread of buffet serving Continental, South Indian, North Indian cuisines and a spread of innovative sweets & desserts. The Honey Comb Restaurant was quite breezy overlooking the Kabini river. The Chef and the restaurant staff gave every guest special attention. They made a delicious Pineapple & Butterscotch cake, decorated with candles. We asked them what’s the occasion? The cake was made just to celebrate our stay at The Orange County. That was a sweet gesture. My favorite was their crispy… juicy… hot Jalebis, Pastas, Baked potatoes, Grilled chicken steaks, Paneer & Fish tikkas marinated with herbs and spices.
On the whole, it was lovely and memorable experience….! Look out for my next post where I would write about Boat Safari in the River Kabini & the Jungle Safari to the Nagarhole National Park.
