An intriguing wood home, hidden away in a rural part of Coorg, invites explorers on a journey of discovery. Ideal for a group of 4, friends or family, this is the adventurous getaway you have been waiting for. A tropical paradise where it's just nature and you and from where you can head out on unexplored trails...
Welcome to Arka!
Arka, a handcrafted bamboo cabin, was inspired by the universal concepts of Sacred Geometry, the geometry of forms inherent in nature. The idea has been to create a space out of harmonious proportions, finely in balance with the tropical surroundings that the home inhabits. The cottage is intriguing and inviting, a blend of modern ideas and some age old wisdom...
Arka offers a one of a kind experience - both in terms of the house and also the stunning setting it is placed in. The wood/bamboo house has been painstaking hand crafted, mostly from natural materials from our estate. Special attention has been given to lighting and use of symbols to reflect the home's universal character. The surroundings are of lush tropical variety - at the estate we have paddy fields, a coffee plantation, bamboo gardens, an areca nut stretch and some vegetables and spices with forests forming part of the background. The cottage faces east and morning views are simply stunning.
Almost off the grid, this is an ideal destination for those who wish to discover the charms of the Coorgi countryside and find a new bit of themselves in the process. Through Arka we would like to meet fellow artists and creative minded people who can use this space for engaging exploring with nature and themselves.
Arka is located at Shyara Land, our 25 acre family estate in Karada village (South Coorg). You have access to the entire estate which includes our coffee plantation, paddy fields and bamboo gardens. The estate also includes a farmhouse with 2 guest rooms and a kitchen and a small settlement for plantation workers. Apart from this its pretty much just nature and you.
Interaction with guests
I live in VIrajpet town (15kms from Arka) where I work out of my studio there. I visit the estate often and would love to show you around the property. There are friendly staff at the estate who can cook for you and help you out with anything.
Other things to note
We offer various facilities to make your stay comfortable and your exploration more enriching. Do keep in mind that this is not a hotel or resort but a offbeat farmstay so service is limited. The place is ideal for someone who can be independent and takes joy in the charms that nature has to offer. We are lucky to have this space where natures bounty can be experienced all year along.
- Smoking is not allowed indoors, it's fine to smoke outdoors but do dispose buds responsibly.
- We appreciate responsible drinking/partying, do keep our space clean and litter free
- The wood and bamboo structure looks great but is hard to maintain, your help in keeping the space clean and damage free would be appreciated. Consume water and electricity with thought.

I'm a Law Graduate who gave up law and chose to follow my Dreams. After completing a Diploma in Interior Designing, my passion helped me to further study the topics of my interest - Lighting Design and Sacred Geometry.
The Love for Light and Nature has led me to create a unique Space in Coorg. I believe in creating Art using Space as a Canvas and Light as the Medium taking cue from Nature which uses Geometry in its raw form as a Blueprint for Creation.
