Looking for a cozy and warm stay in Ooty winter nestled away from the hustle-bustle of the town? The Tamarilo is where you need to book right away. It's a small and sweet space covered with lush green plants and beautiful Nilgiri flowers. Interiors are not very fancy but subtle and clean. They don't have a restaurant but a small kitchen from where you may order for room service. Manju is a nice young chap who not only hosts you but is also a great help in guiding and planning your Ooty tour.
The Tamarilo is named after a juicy fruit. They've a big Tamarilo tree just at the entrance. Bonfire is there everyday where you'll be accompanied by some local jungle cats. Imagine waking up to a beautiful sunrise sky, just right in front of you. Book the room with balcony and you'll Cherish your stay! Since it overlooks the valley, it's sold out most of the time so yeah it's difficult but nothing is impossible, right? The food they serve is mouth watering. Owner is also so welcoming and friendly.
One negative point, due to the weather many housefly and insects are common in the rooms so don't get mad and ask Manju, he'll help you out with it. Also a suggestion, it'll be great having your own vehicle since it is 3kms away from town and transport will be little problematic. Auto is always there, but it turns out to be really expensive.
Tariff is around ₹4000/night
