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!

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Two of my friends and I wanted time away from our city lives and Arka was just the perfect get away. A beautiful house, so well thought out and maintained with such care. Totally worth the drive and the money!

I have no words to describe this place. Its absolutely beautiful. I recommend everyone to have a talk with the Owner Nikhil who himself designed this place and get to know the concept behind his creation. Once you are in this place, you wouldn't want to leave. The caretaker lady is also very helpful.

The place needs to be experienced in totality to get a complete stress bust. From the exterior of the designer bamboo hut to the asthetics of the interiors are detailed and exquisite. The view from the hut and the garden is quite spectacular, "The Lord of the rings" fan would love it. The fauna & flora in the estate is quite varied and interesting with a Bamboo Garden. Get Nikhil to talk about the geometry & the history of the hut, the experience gets enhanced manifold. The sunset and the evening light in the Garden is not to be missed along with the mood lighting in the hut.

Definitely, the best homestay i have experienced till date. This is a beautiful property with everything just perfect about it. Scenic view, beautiful interiors, easy to approach, superb comfort, delicious food, nice hospitality, top-notch and hygienic up-keep. I went there with my family and each one of us fell in love with the place. The effort and imagination that has been put in crafting the interiors is pretty visible. Whether you are a bunch of friends looking for some fun or a family looking for a secluded private space to relax, this place is just perfect for everyone.

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.

I Welcome you all Happiness Seekers to Come and Relax. Sing with the Birds and Breathe with the Plants, let Yourself Free. After your stay at this Abode, you will learn to see Life through the World of Colors and Shapes.
