Taj Savoy, Ooty

The Taj Savoy in Ooty is a 190-year old heritage property set amongst five acres of 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. Once a school for children, this converted hotel lies nestled in the hill station of Ooty amidst the Blue Mountains. 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.
