Environmentally Conscious


Environmentally Conscious

We’re concerned about the environment and its depleting resources. You will notice that we are trying to reduce our carbon footprint with the many environmentally friendly initiatives that dot the property. We encourage you to join us in our efforts.

Save Water: Water at The Birdcage is drawn from a natural spring about 1.5 KM away. It is an extremely scarce resource in our neighbourhood and we urge you to use it optimally, not waste it in any manner. Don’t worry, there’s plenty available to furnish our needs, just enjoy it responsibly.

Rain Water Harvesting: We’re excited when it rains. A 40000 ltrs rain water storage system in our backyard works hard towards collecting, storing and recycling this water so that we can use it judiciously for Gardening and other external application requirements around the property.

Solar Power: The use of Solar Power too finds it way in to The Birdcage, with some investments. Hot water in our bathrooms is courtesy Solar Water Heating Plants. We also have an electric backup for snowy days.

Organic Kitchen Garden: The words farm to table ring true here at The Birdcage. We house a small organic kitchen garden that is used to grow vegetables and herbs. We also source a lot of organic produce from nearby farms and orchards, making sure everything you eat is truly, farm fresh!

Minimum Use of Plastic: Plastic is non-biodegradable and once swallowed up by Mother Earth, it will stay there forever causing much havoc to the environment. We try to use as little plastic as possible and also encourage you to do the same.



Mountain Biking: A bad day on Mountain Bike always beats a good day in the office. And that’s exactly why we encourage you to go biking in our neighborhood. Just pick up an MTB from us for INR 1000 + 18% GST and go have fun, be active!

Celebration Decor: Visiting us for your Birthday, Anniversary or just simply to celebrate love? We would love to be part of your celebrations and will happily organize a private Celebration Dinner in the open for you. We will decorate the open space with ferry lights and serve you exclusively. We will charge INR 1500 + 18% GST for this set up and you may order your dinner as per our a la carte menu.

Alcohol: You may bring your own alcohol and consume it in your room. We serve a good collection of Beers & Wines in our Restaurant.

Sheeshas: We serve tobacco free Sheeshas at INR 1000 + GST per serving. Pack light, no need to bring your own.

Bon Fire: We sure can set up a Bon Fire in your private garden on those cold nights when you want to cozy up to your partner. We charge INR 1500 + 18% GST for it.

Dog Friendly: Do bring your furry friends along when you stay with us. Just intimate us in advance and let us know if you need any special arrangements, we will try our best to accommodate. We do not charge extra to host your pet. However, we request you bring your pet’s sleeping mattress / bed along as we do not want pets getting on our guest beds. We will prepare homelike meals for your pet at a nominal charge.

Birthday / Anniversary Cake: We bake some yummy cakes to help celebrate special occasions. Check with us for flavours and prices.

Birding: The birdlife here is as vibrant as it is diverse, ranging from the dimintine Warblers to the majestic Khalij pheasants. We are happy to get you a birding guide at a nominal charge.
