• ORANGE COUNTY | KABINI

Welcome to Orange County, Kabini
Orange County, Kabini

Orange County’s Spirit of the land philosophy finds its most intimate expression at Kabini, where you are drawn into the vibrant social tapestry of the local Kadu Kuruba tribe. While you discover a vernacular dimension to luxury that’s truly liberating, Orange County Resort, Kabini gives you a wildlife experience like no other. Inspired in design by the Hadis or tribal villages, this picturesque resort of sweeping panoramic vistas, is bordered on two sides by the Kabini River. Orange County is the most exquisite resort among all Kabini Resorts.

Kabini

The river Kabini originates in the Wayanad district of Kerala, flows eastward to join the river Cauvery, which empties into the Bay of Bengal. This is the largest river in the Nagarhole National Park and was dammed in 1974 for an irrigation project. This becomes the life-giving source for the park during the summer months, attracting the largest concentration of Asiatic Elephants and other herbivores. The river separates Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks.

The promoters knew well that they couldn’t make Kabini more beautiful, so decided to simply make it more exquisite. They began with the understanding that the most luxurious things in the world are peace, tranquility and harmony, and that whatever they do should only enhance these pillars of their philosophy. The result is a resort architecture that has a tribal Kadu kuruba leitmotif, where each of the guest huts bespeaks a happy marriage of traditional craft and modern luxury.

From the outside, the dwellings subtly incorporate the colors and textures of the landscape in every detail; while within, the sumptuous interiors reflect a warm vernacular sensitivity. From the ethnic furniture to the tribal patterned furnishings, to the little touches like the ‘bottle gourd’ lamp shades, the sum of the parts is a harmonious whole.
