Tripoto

Ooty is a popular hub for anyone who wants to experience a cool and pleasant temperature in South India. And it is also quite famous for its chocolate and tea which makes it a perfect weekend getaway for anyone living around this hill station.

But if you truly want to enjoy and relax in this small hill station then it would be better to stay in a hotel/resort which gives you an amazing view and a chance to rejuvenate yourself. While there are a lot of hotels near the market area, I personally think Delightz Inn Resort is the best choice for anyone who wants to stay away from the crowd.

Honestly, when I stayed in this hotel, I didn't even feel like I was in Ooty anymore. It was so calm and peaceful and the surrounding trees and tea farms made for a perfect wake-up view. So, if you are also looking for some peace and quiet in this popular hill station then Delightz Inn is the perfect place for you to stay.
