Aalaya by Happy Retreats is a destination that is ensconced within a sprawling 8.6 acres land. Barely 25 km from the heart of Bangalore city, this is a haven that is ‘So near and yet so beautiful’.
Aalaya continues to retain its brand new and well maintained appearance along with its neatly manicured lawns, gardens ablaze with brightly colored flowers and hundreds of beautiful trees.
The stately home is a mix of traditional architecture coupled with modern luxuries and the classy interiors are done up tastefully with elegant furnishings and artifacts.
There are a total of 4 spacious bedrooms on 2 levels, furnished with large beds, dressing area and modern washrooms.There is a refreshing view from both the large windows of the bedrooms.The mezzanine level above the 1st floor, also houses a library.
There is a porch on the ground floor and a corridor that runs around the house. Likewise there is an airy balcony on the first floor, which circumvents the house. One can have an expansive view of the lawns and grounds from here.
The adjacent lawn is complete with a large swing which makes it an ideal place for pre wedding functions like Mehndi etc.
The rest of the land is a veritable paradise with several trees and plants including a mini coffee and pepper plantation, a large banana plantation, a sizeable mango orchard, areca trees, coconut trees, an all spice tree and several other fruit trees like chikoo, guava, gooseberry, jackfruit, papaya, pomelo etc.
The several varieties of flowers cover the hedges in a riot of color, enticing butterflies and bees that make fluttering sorties on the nectar.
Of course this place is also a haven for several species of birds and one is treated to complimentary background birdsong all day long.
"A paved walkway runs uninterrupted along the periphery of the property and makes a great walking/jogging track. Look out for the caretaker’s enthusiastic dogs though 😀 I was told that they are harmless but I would not take my chances without a staff member accompanying me" Caroline from Curry Lines
