Although a little further away from the waterfall, this property is still close enough to get you there within 15 minutes. How does it qualify on this list then? Well, it is a property sitting in the middle of a plantation. You get to not only see greenery for almost a full 360 degrees around you but you also find yourself constantly surrounded by the scent of vanilla, coffee, areca, etc. Its star attraction remains its close proximity to Karnatka’s world-famous waterfall, Jog Falls. You can visit the cascading waterfall in its full glory from here. Additionally, if you are a water-baby (which let’s face it, if this interested you, you probably are!) then you can even jump into the resort’s very own pool.

I remember seeing the Chitrakoot Falls as a child and being stunned. Up until then, I had seen relatively smaller waterfalls, where one could even jump and play around in the falls. But such was not the case with Chitrakoot Falls because it was simply huge. We sat upon a boat and made our way to it, massive rocks on either side opening up to the sight of multiple white curtains flowing below. The falls size is such that a mist seems to rise from it! At this property, you can enjoy and relax at a simple stay in cottages which are quite literally overlooking these breath-taking falls.
