Eagle Eye Holidays : Life is More than a Party at this Natural Paradise

Oct 6, 2010

The malnad region of Karnataka offer awe-inspiring holiday destinations for discerning holiday seekers who are in the look out for that rejuvenating tonic in the lap of Mother Nature’s pristine environs. 

Chickmagalur, the land of coffee estates situated in the malnad region of Karnataka, is endowed with rich and veritable geographical and climatic diversity which can be truly termed as matchless. “Monis Eagle Eye Holidays” is one such exotic holiday destination that can infuse fresh breath of life into the body and soul of those who are looking for an all-in-one package of freshness, fun, adventure, leisure, recuperation, hospitality and exotic food topped with that unique tryst with nature.  It offers a distinct holiday experience which is sure to uplift, inspire and breathe fresh life into the otherwise mechanical and stressful lives of people.  The delightful memories of the days spent at these cottages are sure to linger on for years to come.    

Situated at about 2100 feet above sea level Eagle Eye Holiday Home is spread across a vast expanse of 130 acres land with lush green plantations of coffee, spices, medicinal plants and orchids overlooking the enchanting and endearing Western Ghats. It is located close to historical and religious places of importance namely Sringeri, Hornadu, Bhadra Wild Life, Rambapuri Peetha, Bababudangiri, Mullayanagiri, and Bhadra River etc.  It is a gateway to a complete holiday destination for the entire family that offers an array of activities with a mixture of adventure, splendor, tranquility and munificence of nature.  One can choose from fishing, boating, trekking, rock climbing, river rafting, target shooting, bird watching, outdoor sports or a leisurely walk in the splendid lush greenery of the estate for that intoxicating experience.   It also offers high-rope challenge courses and conducts plantation study tours, a very popular choice of activity of many who come to dwell here. “Many holiday seekers enjoy plantation tour because they get an opportunity to see how the spices, fruits and vegetables are grown”, Monis explains.



Simply irresistible

And for those who are in the look out for a sure fire way to rejuvenate, revive and enliven themselves in the serene and soothing milieu of nature at its virgin best, Eagle Eye Holidays is nothing short of a ‘Natural Paradise Beyond Compare”. There is also yoga, meditation, rejuvenating ayurvedic and beauty treatments, the best tonic to relax and unwind.  One has to come to this besotted paradise on earth to experience home, nature, water and adventure on a holiday destination, which is simply irresistible. 

Eagle Eye Holidays which has 31 cottages on offer for discerning travel freaks has many firsts to its credit.  It was the first home stay in Chickmagalur when it was started in 2001.  It is also the first holiday destination to have a tree house and also a glass house, an innovative concept in luxury, hospitality and holidaying. It is also the first one to come out with a water fall villa to get that natural feeling of being close to the nature and get intoxicated in such a closeted setting.  The man behind the natural paradise George Henry Monis says “I incorporate changes keeping in tune with people’s tastes and requirements. I ask people who come here for suggestions and if I feel they gel well with the concept I have developed I don’t hesitate to incorporate.  Now it is more of a hobby and a passion”.   

Monis always had passion for innovativeness and with encouraging words from his now late mother Martha Monis he started giving wings to his creativity by starting the Home Stay.  In the initial stages it was more of a business diversification but over the past nine years it has transformed into a boulevard of dreams fulfilled resulting in a stunning and fascinating holiday destination.  Monis says “plantation is a labour oriented industry and due to labour crisis, fluctuations in coffee prices and other problems faced by plantations I wanted to diversify the business by going for holiday home.  Now it has become a passion, a hobby and it gives me an opportunity to use my creativity and innovative ideas in proper perspective to provide an exotic holiday destination”.  

It is of course a one man show at Eagle Eye Holiday, under the dynamic and effervescent leadership of George Henry Monis, who is ably assisted by a thorough professional team that works with precision and graciousness the job calls for.  With a professional approach the team ensures that people holidaying here get true value for their money and an endearing experience that is truly exhilarating.  The innovativeness and creative impulse of George Henry Monis is reflected in every feature of the Eagle Eye Home Stay, be it the architecture, interiors, the novel ideas or the professional approach and that is what sets it apart from the rest.  

Unforgettable Experience

An interesting aspect of Eagle Eye Holidays is that it is not too heavy on the pockets of budget travelers.  One can choose from standard rooms, cottages, villas, tree house, and sky walk villas, water fall villas - at an affordable and reasonable rate without worrying too much about the financial burden.  It is an ideal retreat for budget travelers as well as the most luxury holiday seekers.  The tariff of all categories is inclusive of meals along with a complimentary package.

The standard rooms with sit outs offer a good view of the scenic beauty of the surrounding area.  The cottages with thatched roof and interior made up of bamboo with an attaché are also quite enticing.  The villas are meant for 2 to 4 people and are furnished with 4 cots.  The interiors of some of the villas are done with wooden panel while a few are built with eco-friendly interlocking wall bricks used without cement for cooling effect.

The tree house at Eagle Eye Holidays is a unique concept aimed at giving a feeling of being on cloud 9 literally for the holiday seekers. With a built-up area of 790 sq ft, the tree house has a portico, living bedroom with attached bath and toilet and other luxurious facilities.  It provides a 360 degree view of the fog filled surrounding giving a feeling as if the clouds move towards the tree house.  The flashing sun rays of the dawn chasing the misty fog is truly amazing and one cannot miss viewing the array of distant mountains spread up to Kudremukh peak.  Watching the panoramic view of the golden hues of the sunset from the tree house is sure to drive the holiday seekers almost into delirium.  The tree house with complete privacy is the right destination for honeymoon and unwinding. 

The sky wall villas are spacious with a sit out of glass flooring about 80 feet high and offer an opportunity to fully soak up in the scenic beauty of nature.  Another major attraction is the water fall villa wherein there is a waterfall just opposite the bed. 

Soak in the Luxury

The crowning glory at Eagle Eye Holidays is of course the glass house with an indoor individual swimming pool in each room.  The glass house is built with eco-friendly interlocking wall bricks with wall to wall glass from front view for enjoying the panoramic beauty of nature.  There are 4 cots in a room and can be taken on twin sharing and even sharing by 4 persons.   All the guest houses come with a complimentary package that comprises fishing, coracle ride, plantation walk, bird watching, forest trek, indoor and outdoor games, camp fire etc,.  On request activities include wild life safari, target practicing, adventure trek, river side picnic, site seeing adventure activities and white water rafting etc.  

Eagle Eye Holidays has become a sanctuary for some exotic birds as they find a safe haven.  Moniz says “this is the place where I have maintained highest degree of shade by planting a variety of trees and naturally birds flock here to set up their nests in the lush green surroundings.  The chirping of birds and the cool breeze is soothing to the body and the soul”.

    "A thing of beauty is a joy forever " was stated by John Keats, the famous English poet. Indeed the exotic scenery of Chikmagalur in pictures brought joy to my eyes. I earnestly appeal to the authorities and environmentalists in particular to make every effort to preserve and conserve such scenic landscapes and spots all over the country.

    Yes ! indeed the Eagle Eye Holiday Resort is simply awesome. I went there with my family 3 months ago and it is just superb.... superb... place to spend really nice time with mother nature. Mr. Monis and his team are so excellent in treating the guest that while coming back my family comments that they went on a holiday tour to their relative's house. Such a wonderful serene atmosphere, homely food, friendly staff (Specially Jyothi), Adventurous games to children... all makes everyone to feel coming back again and again. All the best Mr. Monis. Keep it up.
    Special thanks to Daiji world to explore this place and sharing it with their viewers.
