Taj Savoy Hotel

A charming colonial-style hotel, set high upon a hill in the Nilgiri mountain range

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.

Naturalist guides were brilliant. We seem to have been given the best one in each place. Had same one for whole of stay in each place. Cultural guides gave just enough information and then left you to ask questions about what interested you which is what we like. They did not seem to have a set patter. Helpful about photographic sites – i.e. good position to take photos.

[OVERALL STANDARD OF SERVICE] Excellent isn’t good enough. In every place we were treated like royalty. Totally relaxed and felt totally safe but not smothered.

[WILDLIFE HIGHLIGHTS] 11 tigers, innumerable rhino, wild elephants, buffalo, otters, hog and swamp deer, and wild boar. Birds at Keoladeo excellent. Watched leopard and three cubs at Siana for 1.5 hrs of exceptional viewing.

An outstanding holiday which far exceeded our expectations. Many people would enjoy it I’m sure.
