Staycation in the misty hills of Chikmagalur – Part 1 πŸƒβ˜•οΈ

Staycation in the misty hills of Chikmagalur

Which resort !? It’s a place called Trivik, located amidst the coffee plantations and forests in the hills of Chikmagalur. This was our second visit to Chikmagalur; during the first visit πŸ‘‰ An itinerary for Chikmagalur 🌳, we completed a cursory visit of the touristy locations, so this time round it was just confining ourselves within the resort and having a peaceful stay, not rushing about from one spot to another !

Setting off from Bangalore at 7:50 am, with a stop at Sravanabelagola and thereafter lunch at A2B πŸ‘‰ Enroute from Bengaluru to the misty mountains (in Karnataka) πŸ›£ , we reached Chikmagalur town by 2:30 pm and at the resort by 3:00 pm.

The place was shrouded in mist and surrounded by trees; the scenery was beautiful !! It felt good to be there !!

The unassuming entrance of Trivik

Greeted with the customary tilak on the forehead, as you step into the main lobby, you see the large windows on the other end with full views of the majestic trees covered in mist; it’s a spectacular sight !! We were served warm lemon tea and just left to soak in the scene for sometime 😘

Misty, misty views !!

Then you notice the grand marble and wood staircase and the pretty paintings on the wall. After completing the check-in process, we walk down to our suite. It started drizzling again β˜”οΈ

We chose a garden view suite and the room was spacious and the views were gorgeous. Have to mention the long walk-in closet plus the large bathroom complete with a jacuzzi.

It felt like a room in the clouds; you could sit for hours in the balcony surrounded by mist and listen to the babbling bulbuls 🎢

After exploring the room and the excitement of being up in the hills and out of the city, it was time for dinner. Though it was drizzling, we didn’t want to order room service; but wanted to eat at their restaurant. The restaurant is called Arabica.
