The ancient city of Hampi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was once described as the “best provided city in the world”. The jewel in the crown of the famed Vijayanagara Empire, 14th century ruins of the city scatter the landscape telling the magnificent story of a bygone and glorious era. Located just 4km from the ruins of the historical site, lies the newly opened Orange County Hampi. From the fort-like grand entrance to the regal chambers, the ornate architecture, landscaped gardens and opulent interiors, this luxurious boutique resort has been designed to mirror the famed palaces and distinctive splendour of the Vijayanagara Empire. A stunning hotel which is sure transport you back to an era that has been long lost to mankind.
Orange County also have two other resorts in Kabini and Coorg. Between them, they have been quietly gaining popularity and acclaim. Here at Ampersand we are huge fans and we consistently get glowing feedback from our clients who visit. Orange County resorts are known for their understated integrity, care for the environment, the warmth and sincerity of staff and the quality of experience they offer – particularly for nature lovers.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
