I was under the wrong impression that Spa resorts are built only in and around highly popular holiday destinations such as:
- Hill stations
- Sunny beaches
- Remote places that are hidden behind woods
Coimbatore is a sprawling city located almost on the foothills of lush green Western Ghats. Coimbatore is the gateway to many enchanting weekend holiday destinations that include:
- Valparai hills
- Parambikulam wildlife sanctuary
- Munnar hill station
- Eravikulam National Park
- Bandipur wildlife sanctuary
- Anamalai hills and tiger reserve
- Mudumalai wildlife sanctuary
Don’t you think this big list of sightseeing places near Coimbatore city warrants resorts and spas to have come up to entice the tourists to all these wonderful vacation places?
Apart from being a gateway for hill stations and wildlife sanctuaries, Coimbatore is a big industrial town that attracts several top industrialists to visit for business purposes. Surely, they need a place to unwind and entertain; this is where the luxury resorts come onto the scene. They serve as ideal staycations for tourists and businessmen.
Let me go over some of the best luxury resorts and spa in and around Coimbatore.
Bungalow Club, Coimbatore
So, what do you make out from the image above? What is your first impression? Doesn’t it ooze peace and serenity?
It shows the cottages that are built around the swimming pool. I could sense the surroundings are picturesque too.
It looks perfect for family getaways and corporate outings. I think it is also ideal for throwing wedding parties as well as staying option for honeymooners.
Well, you won’t find anything missing from their list of amenities such as a restaurant, bar, air-condition, Wifi, etc.

Corniche Inn Resort, Coimbatore
It is located in Anaikatti, about 20 km from Coimbatore. Anaikatti is on a mini hill and the valley view from there is breathtaking. Lush green cultivation of various vegetables and flowers, forest trees on the fringes make the place beautiful and it is an ideal place for a resort and spa to exist.
I appreciate the developers of Corniche Inn Resort to have chosen an attractive location, on the border of Kerala.
They offer rooms, suites, and cottages that do not look very attractive but I suppose that is made up with their locations, service, and hospitality. In fact, I am of the opinion that the interior of the rooms is drab. If the location for a resort matches your expectation, you do not mind some of the short comings-right?
I am disappointed with the appearance of the restaurant too. I hope the quality of the food compensates for the aesthetics.

Coco Lagoon by Great Mount, Coimbatore
A rather long name for a resort and spa that is located in Pollachi, about 40 km from Coimbatore. Pollachi is one of the sought after places for resorts and retirement communities because of its greeneries all around and its proximity to so many tourist attractions that include the Anaimalai tiger reserve, Valparai hills, Munnar hill station, and the Azhiar Dam.
