This is a very quaint charming place coocooked in Coonoor but accessible easily. First thing you need to know when you drive is that when you are few mins away, it shows a small right turn (cutting across the opposite traffic) & it's so small that there is every chance you may

Is it pet friendly
Unlike any other premium hotel, this particular place is a heritage hotel with rooms resembling that of traditional houses. Though I am not sure, chances are that they are permitted. You may directly contact the rxn desk for further clarification.

Hi Sandeep. All rooms are on the ground floor. As for what to expect in the rooms and surroundings, check out the photographs in my blog centreofsouth. You might face a problem when you visit the common areas inside the hotel if your mom can't use the stairs. The building is a bungalow. The entrance to the rooms faces the garden. So, that's two steps to your room. Then, there are a few steps to get to the reception, which you need to take to get to the dining area, book room, games room. You have the option of ordering meals to your room. Plan accordingly. The Taj people are nice. They are always willing to help. If you have any queries, call the hotel and ask for Sathish at the reception. He should be able to help with planning.

where can i find the rates for the ayurvedic spa
Try Palm Touch Spa , Bejaji Road Managalore. Google it. Doesn’t seem to have too many options. The Taj Gateway staff should be able to arrange a nice massage for you if u are their guest. If you are going up to Coorg, Taj Medikeri ( 4 hours drive up the mountains) has a delightful Ayurvedic spa and pool!
