There are seven rooms. Our rooms are located in three separate cottages only a few metres apart from each other – named respectively, Cardamom Main House, Mountain House and Summit House. All houses have rooftop terraces for the guests to use.

All our rooms are deluxe, with Western-style bathrooms. For your comfort, all have pocket sprung modern mattresses. Five of the rooms have air-conditioning units. One room is a suite.  All rooms have en suite western style shower/toilet with solar generated hot water and are tastefully designed and furnished .

Free WIFI connection is available in the main living area. It can also be picked up in some other places around the house. Please aware that the signal is at times intermittent.

All our rooms are south facing and the rooms open out onto a verandah with views over the nearby lake and, not far away, the massive mountains.

PONDICHERRY SUITE has two separate, interconnecting rooms – a bedroom with a king-sized bed and a separate lounge. In these two rooms there is some interesting furniture dating back to Pondicherry’s French colonial times in. The bedroom is air-conditioned.

There is always a heavy demand for the suite. It is intended for use by a couple. Guests have access to the full verandah overlooking the swimming pool. There are two stairways leading down to it.


Please note, because we are on a hillside, there are some steps.
