Traditional local materials and techniques are used to ensure that the structures are not only eco-friendly but also culturally embedded. The roofing is ingeniously designed to insulate interiors naturally, reducing the need for artificial cooling and harmonising indoor climates with the cool breeze outside, naturally lowered by approximately 3°C compared to the surrounding area.

Pioneering Sustainability

Club Mahindra Madikeri is India’s first Triple “0” rated resort—Net Zero Energy, Net Zero Water, and Zero waste to landfill. This commendable achievement includes an 804-KW solar rooftop photovoltaic plant, motion sensor-controlled washrooms, timer-controlled lights and energy-efficient appliances. These significantly cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions while reducing operational costs.

Water management at the resort is equally innovative. With initiatives such as 4R approach—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rainwater Harvest—the resort significantly diminishes its water footprint. Natural streams and rainwater are directed to a large pond within the premises, not only supporting the resort’s water needs but also creating a thriving habitat for local wildlife.

Sanctuary for Biodiversity

Beyond these impressive technical accomplishments, this resort in Madikeri is a sanctuary for diverse flora and fauna. The resort is enveloped by thick vegetation, including endemic species like the Rudraksha tree and the Nilgiri Tree Fern, which not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the property but also support local wildlife. The return of over 161 bird species, including the Malabar Grey Hornbill, is a testament to the success of the resort’s biodiversity initiatives. The sounds of chirping sparrows and the sight of wild boars are common, enhancing the guest experience by connecting them with nature at every turn.

A Canvas of Experiences

Club Mahindra Madikeri, however, offers more than just a stay—it promises an experience. Whether it’s enjoying a cup of local kaapi while overlooking the misty hills, relaxing with a therapeutic spa treatment amidst the forest, or engaging in an array of activities like cooking with a chef, coffee tasting, or adventurous ATV rides, the resort ensures that every activity is infused with an element of the locale’s spirit and sustainability ethos.

Dining at the resort is a delight for the senses, with ingredients sourced from the on-site organic gardens and local farms ensuring fresh, flavourful meals that reflect the culinary heritage of Coorg. The Coffee Blossom Restaurant offers a palette of local and continental cuisines prepared with a sustainable twist, proving that luxury and sustainability can go hand in hand.
