The suites, Standard and Deluxe, offer spacious accommodations of 520 Sq Ft and 600 Sq Ft respectively. The rooms are adorned with traditionally embroidered soft furnishings made by local Toda tribeswomen, showcasing the heritage and culture of Ooty. The property features an array of amenities such as a 19m x 7m swimming pool, a spa, conference facilities spanning across 1640 Sq Ft, and 30 extra bed or mattress facilities.

We aim to provide our guests with an authentic and revitalizing experience. Our goal is to create unforgettable memories that guests will cherish for a lifetime. We chose Ooty as our destination because of its beautiful landscapes, tea estates, and rich cultural history. It is an ideal summer break destination for families and couples alike.”
