General

View-of-Sullivan's-CottageScenic Hill Station Bungalow At Valparai in Tamil Nadu enjoys one of the most pleasant climates one can ever come across.

It is a combination of cool breezes, sunny warmth, and intermittent rains. The place derives its name from the hill which is a favoured haunt of elephants. It is also the largest tea district in the whole of South India at present.

The six large bedrooms in this Scenic Hill Station Bungalow At Valparai reflect the taste of the colonial era with antique-style bay windows. The rooms are also fitted with modern amenities for a luxurious stay. A serene and relaxed ambience with a run around balconies provides the perfect view of the surrounding scenic beauty. This bungalow is well-maintained and provides a comfortable stay for the guests. There is also a well-equipped conference room with internet connection for business meetings for corporates who wish to mix business with pleasure.

The meals here are an elaborate and enjoyable activity. The luncheon consists of soups, desserts, and salads. The place also serves the softest idlis that just melt in your mouth. The tea is accompanied by the yummiest of cakes. After all, the bungalow overlooks the Roti Kadai valley, meaning the Bread Shop, a place where the first bakery of the district came up.

Benches are placed outside the bungalow and one can sit here at leisure to enjoy the best view of the lush greenery all around. The warm and welcoming staff at the bungalow is at your service with tea if you wish to sip your cuppa amidst the soothing nature. The misty mornings and the evenings are the best to make the most of this place.

The estate that houses Scenic Hill Station Bungalow At Valparai has sprawling acres of tea plantations. If organic tea is grown on 555 acres of land, another 1,215 acres of land grows conventional tea. Since the area falls under a protected zone, the lush greenery here is largely protected with only the minimum required buildings coming up making it a great getaway from the hustle-bustle of city life.
