Mr. TV Paulose a renowned planter with a profound love for nature migrated from Kerala sometime in the era before India’s independence in search of fresh prospects. His travels took him through thick jungles, over pathways that wound through and over formidable mountains until he finally stumbled upon what is sometimes referred to as “Scotland of India” – Coorg. He then bought 300 acres of fertile land, a plantation that grew Robusta and Arabica coffees, rubber and spices, from Mr. Fox, a British planter.
Being a passionate agriculturalist, Paulose strived for sustainable agricultural practices and inculcated in subsequent generations of his family the philosophy of recycling resources wherever possible in order to leave a minimal carbon footprint.
Three generations down the line, regardless of changing times, his vision and passion have endured in the family and so has that connection with nature. Inspired, his grandsons created an ecosystem that today combines luxurious hospitality, pristine nature and an environmentally sustainable plantation. Set at an elevation of 3,398ft atop a hill, they named it Coorg Cliffs Resorts & Spa.
