Aruvankadu, Tamil Nadu

A Tranquil Nature Retreat Near Bangalore

This resort is located in Aruvankadu, which is mid-way from Ooty and Coonoor. The moment you set foot in this heavenly abode, you will know that you have arrived at the perfect place for your travel adventures in the Nilgiris.

With rooms named after characters from the beloved Disney film Sleeping Beauty, complete with modern amenities like minibars and coffee makers, this is the place to be if you are searching for a real weekend getaway amongst the mountains. The spacious rooms boasting balconies overlooking the tea estates and the renowned in-house restaurant, The Fable, renowned for its local fare, will immediately captivate your interest.

In the dreamy hamlet of Aruvankadu, lies this beautiful resort which just boastfully stands tall amongst the lush greenery and the beauty of its surroundings. The best part of staying here is the moment you go to your private balcony with a cup of hot filter coffee in your hands, you will see the green tea plantations till your eyes can wander off. The rooms are tastefully designed with all the basic amenities available for a comfortable stay.

What We Love: 

The balcony and the restaurant are just beautiful. The balconies have views of the lush greenery of the tea plantations till you can see, with the mountains adding to the beautiful allure of your stay. Whilst staying at this place, when you go to eat at The Fable, the in-house restaurant, I think that you will focus on your food less and the view more, as the glass windows do not do justice to the view that sits outside!
