Market Growth

With its postcard-perfect settings, pleasant climes and green environs, Kodagu is a dream destination for lakhs of holiday goers. There is no wonder why it is called as ‘Scotland of India.’ The increasing number of middle class families coupled with the rapid growth in eco tourism further strengthens the scope of tourism in Coorg. 

This misty hill station is seeing an influx of around 35 lakhs tourist hovers every year. Above all, the new international airport at Kannur, Kerala will spur the growth of tourism in Kodagu more.

With the growing domestic tourism trends, the preferences of travellers are also evolving in haste. Today’s guests are far more aware of the need and importance of eco-tourism. They want to collect some enthralling experiences with nature and local life instead of fall for some ‘eye candy’ or so called nature resorts and homestays. Vaishnavi Estate, which takes just one hour journey time from Kannur International Airport, is a mesmerizing treat for the nature lover and anyone who needs a break from their monotonous life.

Differentiating Factors

With spacious, airy rooms, antique furniture and an overwhelming sense of serenity – Vaishnavi Estate bungalow takes you back to a bygone era. It’s built in the traditional Kerala Tharavad Style -with an open courtyard which makes it very breezy and cheerful. The estate blossoms are a great attraction to a variety of birds. Watching them jostling and competing for the nectar from these flowers is a sight to remember. It’s a treat for bird lovers to sip a cup of our plantation coffee and listen to birds’ sweet melody.    

While many other homestays have tried to commercialize their offerings and provide additional services to guests, Vaishnavi Estate has, however, maintained that the homestay is only incidental to the coffee plantation. They give first and foremost priority to maintain the natural beauty of coffee plantation and the homestay/estate stay is only meant to provide an experience of the enchanting coffee plantation living. This promotes the tranquillity of guest’s estate stay.

Growth and Future Plans

Prakash Group utilizes latest technology to reach out to national as well as international audience and showcase the details of their coffee plantation property via platforms/OTAs. Airbnb and TripAdvisor are platforms that we have effectively used to reach out to prospective guests. Vaishnavi Estate Stay has five star ratings in many of these online platforms and received a lot of positive reviews, particularly for its serene and natural beauty, helping staffs, tasty food and high quality service.

In construction business, company’s rock-solid values, uncompromising business ethos, transparency in all transactions and constant strive to attain perfection in each project helped Prakash Group to earn the trust of their customers, whereas through Vaishnavi Estate Stay, they are striving to ensure the enjoyable stay in a good property for guests that offer clean rooms and nice home cooked meals. It might be pertinent to note here that Vaishnavi Estate has acquired over 175 reviews on Airbnb from its guests.

Since Prakash Group’s main priority is to protect the charm of the coffee plantation and its well maintenance, they have no plans to increase the number of cottages. However, they will try to utilize the modern methods and platforms to reach out to guests across the globe, while looking for new means to keep guests happy and preserve environment.
