About Divine Euphoria Farmland near Bangalore
Divine Euphoria is a proposed farm land style resort project in a beautiful natural atmosphere, spread across about 80 acres of land. You can buy small plots in this farmland and build your own farmhouse and enjoy all the amenities. Or, you can rent log cabins, cottages or vacation homes for a couple of nights and have fun without bothering about building and managing your own vacation home.
A lot of indoor and outdoor activities are promised by the developers, which are expected to make Divine Euphoria an attractive weekend destination.
Divine Euphoria is located at Sangam Road near Kanakapura and is about 65 km away from Bangalore city. Depending on the traffic and your location in Bangalore, it may take up to 2 hours to reach this place. Also see How to reach Divine Euphoria Farmland in Kanakapua.
One of the biggest advantage of this place is, it is surrounded by hills. I have rarely seen such beautiful places except the hill stations like Munnar in Kerala and Kodaikanal.
Divine Euphoria Farmland, developed by "Divine Properties" is currently being developed and is expected to be fully operational by mid of next year (2012), according to the developers. Some of the salient features of this project are:
1. Gated community.
2. Surrounded by hills. You can have an almost 365-degree view of natural beauty.
3. Located at a high elevation, giving fresh air and a great view of sunrise and sunset.
4. Swimming pool, Clubhouse, Restaurant are planned and promised by the developers
5. Fishing Ponds
6. Cycling trail
7. Horse trail
8. Lot of animals including cows, buffaloes, dogs, goats, rabbits etc (they are already present in the site)
9. Birds - chicken, ducks and a lot more.
10. Yoga centre (work in progress)
11. Library (work in progress)
12. Indoor games
13. Outdoor games and activities
15. Cottages and farmhouses for an overnight stay (some cottages are already built and a few others are work in progress).
Many of the unique features in Divine Euphoria make it an ideal place for a weekend stay if everything promised by the developers is delivered.
Why did I choose Divine Euphoria to build a Farm house
You can read more about my crazy search for farm houses around Bangalore and how I found Divine Euphoria. I have been looking for an ideal weekend destination around Bangalore to spend my holidays with friends and family. We decided to go to a farmhouse (buy or build) in a naturally beautiful place to give us a break from the monotonous work in front of the computers all the time. And moreover, after returning from the USA, our kids were missing log cabins and cottages which were common in the USA but very rare in India.
Our criteria for the weekend destination was:
1. Should be in a naturally beautiful place (on the hills or near a river)
2. Should be within a short driving distance from Bangalore
3. Should be in a safe and secure area
4. Should have connectivity to the internet and phone
5. We don't want to cook all the time when we go on a weekend trip, so there should be restaurants nearby.
6. A log cabin is preferred since kids are missing the cabins we enjoyed in the USA
When I list my criteria, my wife used to make fun of me saying I am talking about a dreamland that does not exist anywhere. I too did not expect I can fulfil all the criteria until I found Divine Euphoria.
Divine Euphoria Farmland meets (if all promises by developers are delivered) almost all of my expectations and criteria we set for our vacation stay. It is very scenic, picturesque and surrounded by beautiful hills. Even though it is not located on the riverside, it is on the way to the Kaveri river (Cauvery river), which is a growing tourist destination.
Distance is a bit higher than I prefer. DE is about 65 km from Bangalore city and takes about 2 hours to reach during peak traffic. It would have been ideal if I could reach there in an hour or so.
It is a safe and secure place since it is in a gated community with 24-hour security. Developers have assured full fencing around the farmland. An upcoming restaurant would satisfy your taste buds unless you want to cook in your log cabin or cottage.
I am not sure if they will have internet connectivity. I will find it soon.
There are a lot of opportunities for outdoor activities for kids. If you are visiting with friends or relatives, there are enough activities to keep the kids busy while you barbecue the chicken on the grills.
Buy & build a farmhouse or Rent a cabin?
You have many options at Divine Euphoria.
If you build your own vacation home at DE, you can visit and stay whenever you want. You can rent your vacation home to others when you are not staying there. If you buy only a plot and not build a cottage, you can use their cabins or cottages 2 times a year. Property owners need to pay around Rs 5,000 as annual maintenance fee for an average size plot, which they haven't started collecting yet. If you want to buy or build a vacation property near Bangalore, Divine Euphoria would be a good option.

Disclaimer: I own a plot at Divine Euphoria and this review is based on the information I gathered as part of my limited experience with them. I have no affiliation with the developer of this property.
Many of the expectations mentioned above are based on the promises by the developers when I purchased my piece of land. I hope they will deliver their promises but I have no guarantee. If you are inspired by reading my blog, make sure you do your homework before you buy anything there.
Since this review started giving many inquiries to the project, they started offering me goodies like free mango tree planted in my property, a lemon tea each time walk into their office etc! The developer even paid for my coffee when I met him once in a Coffee Day on the way to Kanakapura. So, if you are visiting or buying there, please mention my review so that I can have another lemon tea when I visit them next time :-)
I am planning to visit other farmlands and resorts around Bangalore and like to write reviews. If you know any such week-end destinations or vacation stay places, let me know and I will be more than happy to visit the place and review them.
We are also considering buying a plot at Divine Euphoria. Has your property been registered? We found a forum where some owners were worried about the delay in registration from the developers side.
