Amritasthanam, also fondly known as “Betta Thota” or “Mountain estate”, is built within a coffee plantation on top of a mountain near the town of Madikeri, in the village of Thurkurahatti, and is an escape into a part of the world unlike any other. Amritasthanam has an uninterrupted view of seven different mountain ranges and a treetop canopy as far as the eye can see. Even the locals agree that it is a view seen nowhere else in the region of Coorg.
Amritasthanam is a family-owned and operated guest house (locally called a “homestay”) and yoga retreat, offering you the unforgettable experience of falling back in touch with yourself. Karma Yoga with your family and ours. The friendly staff, with their constant smiles, will make your stay as comfortable as home yet still offer a fresh and exciting new experience.
Ganga Ena and Pradip are the owners of Amritasthanam. Originally from Delhi, India, they moved to Canada with their daughter in 1989, with the hope of always returning home to offer a piece of India, as they know it, to their friends and family abroad.
After travelling throughout India for 17 years, to places such as Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Goa, to look for a perfect place to build their home, they finally discovered Coorg and all it had to offer. It has taken them 5 years of hard work and dedication to build Amritasthanam into a place they feel is unlike anything their guests have ever seen. With their love of the region, a place they now call home, they encourage guests to come experience the fruits of their lifelong search and labour.
Ganga Ena is an experienced and certified Yoga teacher, practicing since year 2000. A teacher of Hatha Raja Yoga, she has studied yoga at Sheridan College in Canada, Sivananda Ashram in Kerala and Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto.
She wanted to combine her love of India, yoga and nature and offer it to all those willing to experience it. With her husband, Pradip, and her two dogs, Darcy and Dantes, by her side, she offers a beautiful experience for travellers, explorers and yogis alike. Her daughter Shaaista’s support and good wishes have always been there in this project even though she lives away from home. Ganga’s staff will keep you well-fed, well-comforted and well-entertained throughout your stay, leaving you for want of nothing.
