Taj Savoy, Ooty, Tamil Nadu

Discover the Taj Savoy

Set in six acres of serene grounds the Taj Savoy Ooty is just a short distance from the city centre. With architecture and decor inspired by the colonial heritage of the city, the rooms are spacious, modern and offer all the amenities you could need. Spa facilities offering Ayurvedic massages and body therapies, a fitness centre and the sporting activities available on site offer various ways of relaxing after a busy day.

The Taj Savoy Ooty is a 190-year old heritage property set amongst lush gardens with over 150 varieties of flowers. It epitomises the colonial-era lifestyle with croquet on the lawn, afternoon high tea and single malts by the fireplace.  Famous guests include British filmmaker David Lean whilst filming A Passage to India and American author Harold Robbins.

Treat yourself to a signature Anglo Indian dish or the unexplored 400-year old Badaga cuisine exclusive to the Nilgiris. Relax and unwind in the spa or simply breathe in the clean mountain air.
