Magnolia has a semi-hill station climate with warm springs and summers, tropical monsoons and cool to chilly winters. The resort is located at the edge of the western ghat forests. Here are our suggestions for attire:
Bicycles: Guests are welcome to rent the bicycles provided at the resort to tour Magnolia Resorts. Please avoid cycling on steep slopes near the villa and the surrounding hills. The roads are uneven and crashes will cause major injuries.
General: For professionals who enjoy extreme outdoors or guests who simply want to enjoy walks around the estate and neighboring areas, we strongly recommend adequate sportswear such as track suits, sweat pants, jerseys and hiking or sports shoes. Since we are on the border of a nature reserve, socks are a must for one and all with a choice to wear when needed.
Spring: Is a most enjoyable season with misty dawns, clear skies and chirping birds, and mist again in the evenings. Light cotton attire for day time and a light sweater or shawl for the evening is recommended.
Summer: Summers from April to June can be warm to hot although there is enough breeze and cool places to chill. Light cotton shirts, t-shirts, and shorts are adequate for summers.
Monsoon: Perumbadi reqion where Magnolia is located receives one of the highest rainfalls in all of Coorg. We typically close the resort for several weeks between July and August. Open season during monsoon is not for the fainthearted. The resort provides umbrellas to all guests. We however recommend rain coats, sweaters and boots for the adventure seekers.
Winters: Misty mornings and evenings, cool and chilly weather create a perfect mood in a hill-station setting. Guests will enjoy tranquility at its best. We recommend heavy sweaters, shawls, shoes and socks to stay warm at all times.
