The outlook towards life post Covid19 pandemic has changed drastically. The emotional trauma during the pandemic taught people that life can be so fragile and the holiday with loved ones could be truly cherishing and revitalizing. Though the decision to go on a trip can come up in a jiffy but days of research goes into looking for a destination that makes the trip memorable. In this article, we are going to review a beautiful property named ‘The Silver Sky Resort’ to help you decide if you are looking for a visit to Karnataka’s Chikmagalur – The Land of Coffee.
The Silver Sky, this modern resort in Chikmagalur, is aesthetically designed amidst coffee plantations in the backdrop of lush green Western Ghats. With the property constructed inside the coffee estate, one can wake up to the chirping of birds from the tall trees that give shade to the coffee plants underneath. One can have a stunning view of Mullayanagiri, the highest peak of Karnataka.
Spread across 11 acres, the resort provides 4-star amenities with spacious rooms in different categories. The only restaurant in the resort offers delicious food, be it north Indian, south Indian and local dishes. Though the property is surrounded by a dense canopy of trees, you need not be afraid of flies, mosquitoes or other insects – thanks to mesh doors in every room and daily fogging of insecticides to maintain the resort pest free.
