Peace tranquility and harmonyWelcome to the enchanting world of Orange County Resorts, a world of luxury holiday experiences, so steeped in the lore of the land, in the culture of its people and in the untainted natural beauty of the region, that it enjoins you to be one with the Spirit of the Land.
Orange County’s Spirit of the land philosophy finds its most intimate expression at Kabini, where you are drawn into the vibrant social tapestry of the local Kadu Kuruba tribe. While you discover a vernacular dimension to luxury that’s truly liberating, the resort gives you a wildlife experience like no other. Inspired in design by the Hadis or tribal villages, this picturesque resort of sweeping panoramic views, is bordered on two sides by the Kabini River.
They couldn’t make Kabini more beautiful, so they thought to simply make it more exquisite. They began with the understanding that the most luxurious things in the world are peace, tranquility and harmony, and that whatever they do should only enhance these pillars of their philosophy. The result is a resort architecture that has a tribal Kadu kuruba leitmotif, where each of the guest huts bespeaks a happy marriage of traditional craft and modern luxury. From the outside, the dwellings subtly incorporate the colours and textures of the landscape in every detail, while within, the sumptuous interiors reflect a warm vernacular sensitivity. From the ethnic furniture to the tribal patterned furnishings, to the little touches like the ‘bottle gourd’ lamp shades, the sum of the parts is a harmonious whole.
The Orange County Experience enshrines a simple philosophy: Provide exquisite holiday experiences while preserving the purity of nature and culture of the land.
KabiniOrange County Kabini Resort in Kabini is located at a moderate altitude of 800 Mts. It is pleasant all year round but tends to get cooler in the monsoon and winter seasons. Below a simple table for your guidance. Consult this before you set out for the resort.
The river Kabini originates in the Wayanad district of Kerala, flows eastward to join the river Cauvery, which empties into the Bay of Bengal. This is the largest river in the Nagarhole National Park and was dammed in 1974 for an irrigation project. This becomes the life-giving source for the park during the summer months, attracting the largest concentration of Asiatic Elephants and other herbivores. The river separates Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks.
