Taj Savoy Hotel


The Taj Savoy Hotel, one of the prestigious Taj hotels group, is blissfully situated on a hill amidst the sprawling Niilgiri mountain range. Built between 1834 and 1865, the quaint cottage-style building is redolent of the British colonial era. Set in six acres of lush floral gardens, the hotel is a great place to relax and unwind, and take in the natural beauty of the Ooty region.

The hotel’s Dining Hall restaurant serves authentic home-style Indian delicacies, whilst the Active Studio offers healthy, nutritionally balanced meals, and the Quick Fills menu guarantees food is ready in 15 minutes or under – perfect for those with busy itineraries.


Internet access, laptops and printers for hire, Ayurvedic spa centre, nature trails, snooker table, car hire, horse riding, call-out doctor, fitness centre, board games, badminton, table tennis, cycling, trampoline, cricket, volleyball, basketball, yoga and karaoke.

Optional Activities

Take a boat trip on Ooty Lake, drive or climb up Doddabetta Peak – the highest point of the Nilgiris, visit the award winning rose garden or Government Botanical Gardens, look around the Tribal Research Centre Museum or St. Stephen’s Church. There are also many great shopping destinations in town, including lovely chocolate shops, tea shops and local craft markets.

One of my best ever. Everything went like clockwork. 10 tigers seen plus a sloth bear. Your choice of accommodation is brilliant! Just thank you so much for helping design and organise such a great trip. I will come back to you in future.
