Special Tour 2 Days
Anamala House, near Kattukulam, Thiruvilwamala, Kerala 680588, India Kerala, Tamil Nadu

Sinna Dorai, the erstwhile term for an Assistant Manager of a South Indian tea plantation. The place gives you the taste of authentic plantation life at one of its three bungalows: a charmingly unhurried world without Wi-Fi, infinity pools, television and mile long buffets. Welcome to a bygone era where people had time for each other. Venture out on bracing morning walks with just the birds for company; perchance, have a serendipitous brush with wildlife in their habitat; partake of a lazy afternoon tea in the wide sunny verandas; savour delicious plantation home fare that is served with the gracious hospitality that estate homes are renowned for; and finally, retire for a restful night’s sleep in one of the elegantly appointed rooms of the classic heritage home. Experience life, as it should be lived!


The bungalow is situated in the Anamallai Hills, a mountain range in the Western Ghats that spans Tamil Nadu and Kerala states of South India. The name “Anamallai” derives from the Tamil/Malayalam word ‘Ana’ meaning elephant and ‘mallai’ meaning hill, thus Elephant Hill. Of 1940s vintage, the six-bedroom bungalow stands amidst acres of organic tea fields overlooking the Roti Kadai (literally Bread Shop) valley, the location of the first bakery in the district!

DESTINATION: Valpara is a plantation area at about 100 kms from Coimbatore and 185 kms from Cochin. The region is surrounded by Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary, teeming with wildlife and birdlife. Valparai offer stay at traditional plantation estates bungalows – an experiential getaway.
