Peek into our exclusive coffee and its cycle of life — from summer to winter — From the heady aroma of white blossoms in February, to the green and ripe red beans through December. Each season of coffee has an indelible charm and camaraderie that Riverwoods brings to life under the warmth and care of its large hearted coffee planter owners.
An itinerant traveller’s peek into Riverwoods:
Sitting nestled amidst the coffee estate surrounded by towering jungle trees, winding pepper vines and tall teaks in a setting straight out of a jungle retreat, the luxury homestay in chikmagalur is the only one in this coffee district that has the River Bhadra flowing alongside it, where one can hike, cycle, kayak and raft as the clear water beckons a cool, refreshing dip.

Tucked away in Chikmagalur district of the Western Ghats, Riverwoods homestay in Chikmagalur is set amidst 360 acres of Robusta coffee, pepper, areca plants and a garden full of home grown vegetables. Enter its serene confines with the beautiful silhouettes of rolling hills. Endless fields of paddy in tones of green and yellow kiss the sky, disappearing into the horizon. The thick growth of coffee interspersed with pepper vines, fruit trees and local flowers give you the first glimpse of a perfect coffee getaway.
Riverwoods Homestay is among the few quaint, charming 60s style plantation bungalows in this verdant landscape which offers spacious bedrooms, traditional rich red oxide flooring, wooden ceilings and tiled roofs. It is surrounded by spacious and lush gardens filled with seasonal blooms and fruit trees. It is right at the foothills of the Avanthy Coffee Estate, a rustic ‘Home Away From Home.”
Riverwoods is UNIQUE, not only because of the River that runs alongside the estate, but also because of the rich biodiversity of the land, and its non toxically grown coffee. The coffee at Avanthy Estates is lovingly grown, free of any pesticides, fungicides and weedicides. And in sync with nature, our method of biological farming ensures a safe haven for birds and other living creatures, protecting ecological balance. Composting, sustainable farming, using minimal and only necessary inputs, ensures a non-toxic and green plantation environment for our future generations to enjoy.
