Set in a treasure trove of green, this resort has much to offer the nature lover and the quiet seeker The Kaveri is the star attraction, which whether you choose to cross it and trek beyond in search of adventure or favour the soothing spaces and shady nooks that abound. Listening to the cicadas, the bees and the birds along the shady banks is a long lost art which one can indulge in all over again. Bird watching, and Bird 'listening' are a special treat by the riverside - gift yourself the early morning time and dusk for this unique reward. The garden too is a treat, the shrubs, the flowering plants, the multitudes of known and unknown trees. The vegetable garden from which you may even select that which appeals to your taste buds. What a treat that is. Flowers take exceptional tints in Aman Vana. What makes it so special? Is it the fertile land; or the dampness of the river? Is it the more than usual cloud cover or the gentle breezes that appear to favour this valley? What ever it may be, just be grateful, walk up to the flowers for they just may share the secret with you. Take a shower al fresco, for each facility calls out to be tried. And who knows the blessings that rain down with the shower may well bless you with the mantra of a second visit. The food of course is delectable, and in a competitive market this can make claim to being a differentiator. Suggestion - stay with the South Indian offerings for heights of Epicurean excellence - after all you do not visit Kenya to taste English delights You want to learn all about coffee?
