As a part of the yearly team outing, we visited Kadkani Resort in May 2018. Kadkani is a riverside (in the banks of Kaveri river) resort in Coorg, Karnataka
For my Friends in Bangalore: I would certainly recommend this place if your team is planning for an Corporate outing. Try to avoid the multi axle Volvo type bus to this destination, as the road is quite narrow. We went in a Single axle Volvo bus and even then the driver had a tough time.
Kabini is a wildlife reserve near Mysore and is a part of the Nagarhole forest range. Nagarhole national park is popularly known as Rajiv Gandhi National park. These were once a private hunting ground for the royal family of Mysore. Kabini is a smaller part in this park, named after the Kabini river that flows through it. Kabini river originates in Kerala, flows eastwards to join the much larger River Cauvery, eventually discharging into Bay of Bengal at end of its journey, after passing though most of Tamil Nadu and Southern Karnataka.
The property is vast and has about 32 cottages spread over the greens. The layout of the resort is very impressive. One can also do cycling within the resort on cycles provided by resort.There are multiple restaurants available.The food was tasty and the spread was excellent.
We got a chance to do river rafting, zip lining, Volleyball, Badminton, Paddle boating, Table Tennis, Swimming, Air raffle shooting and so on. Swimming pool is also big and clean.
The best part of the stay was our experience with ‘still Water rafting’. This was my first still water rafting experience. They drop us into the water and we can swim around (life jackets are provided). This was an amazing experience.
Seems the travel desk at Kadkani also organises sightseeing trips to the surrounding areas such as Abbi Falls, Madikeri Fort, Omkareshwara Temple and Namdroling Monastery. But since we were on team outing with more than 25 members, we did not go anywhere outside the resort.
They also sell Coorg specialities like coffee and honey.
In addition to nice swimming pool, they have an artificial lake where guests can enjoy pedal boating and the zip liner goes across the lake.
Network connectivity is bad here. But in a way, its good that you can atleast spend your time peacefully here.
