We were two families and had visited Valparai to enjoy the climate and the tea estates. To add to our joy, our stay at Petra was great with good food and neat rooms with all amenities including wifi and parking facility. It is located very close to Sholayar Dam. The staffs were very friendly and made food according to our taste buds. Recommended for stay with family and kids.

What a pleasant stay for 3 days on top of the mountains and tea estates, a cool to Sholayar Dam and famous spots around. We completely enjoyed the nature, fresh air, spring water from the rock, colorful birds singing & sucking honey, flowers & fragrances, fruit trees, spices, coffee, etc., Trekking experience at the steep backyard, more than everything, freshly made food served with love & care.

I coming back to Petra after a gap of 9 years , was one of the very first to stay here and let me tell u "it feels like coming back home" always. U can search for any homestay across valparai but u won't find a better one than Petra. The rooms are spacious and airy. Very close to sholayar dam. The food is amazing as it gives u a feel of a home cooked meal. You need to plan and inform the team there and they will go to any extent to prepare it. People must remeber this is a home stay and not a full functional hotel. I love the roof top dinner set up which gives u a good view. The homestay can accommodate a max of 3-4 cars. The hotel is located away from the buzz of the town of Valparai so enjoy nature and it's calm in full glory. Will I stay here again ? Yes without a doubt.
