“Close to Nature, Valley View estate bungalow of Waterfalls Group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

Reaching the Valley View bungalow inside the Waterfalls estate is bit confusing however once you reach the bungalow it truley apt for the name. The bungalow is situated exactly mid of tea estate valley which has a very good view. Valparai is primarily a place completely with tea estates and bungalows built for their guest/VIP's/Managers who visit the estate. This estate bungalow is situated well before proper valparai on the 28th hairpin bend.

Waterfalls group has three bungalows for their guests. Valley View [which I stayed], Tennis Court Bungalow and Indraprastha [a bit expensive, however worth the spend]

I stayed in Valley View for two nights and my primary objective of this trip is get away from City life and stay close to nature and also for Photography tour. Valparai is not meant for usual tourist destnation like Ooty or Kodaikanal as there are no places of interest or nothing much to do in terms of activity or sight seeing. There are certain places to visit like Balaji Temple built inside a private tea estate, Nallamudi Poonjolai [view point] and Puthuthotam [a place near the road side where you can spot Loin tail macaque]

The stay was comfortable, relaxed, and rejenuvated. Room was clean, bed quality could be little improved, basic toiletrries provided. This property gives you more privacy , more space to explore yourself around the tea estate and take caution before venture out on your own as there are instances of wild animal encounter. Would suggest to take a estate guide along for a trek etc.Around the property you wont find much in terms of houses or shops. Its just mid of tea plantations. The climate was apt for our stay as it was not too cold or rainy it was just drizzling all day and cloudy.

Food was homely and not that restaurant/start hotel kind of stuff. Mix of north and south indian cusisine. Chef is the care taker of the bungalow as well, so he takes care of everything. Take your own medicinal kit for emergency. Hospital is a couple of KMS away from bungalow.

Overall a satisfied stay and willing to go back. One thing about the food is just dont expect too much like a hotel range. Its a homely stay with nice people around to help you, I would recomend for small family weeknd trip or for couples expecting privacy. I enquired and booked through telephone. Ms. Rasha who manages the booking was helpful and mention your purpose of visit in advance so that they could provide you more info about the place

Room Tip: There are only two rooms in Valley View Bungalow, eaqually good.

It was indeed a very memorable and very peaceful , calm and enjoyable stay in Waterfall Estate Indraprasta Guest House. Staying in an old british bunglow maintained spotless and neat is a gift. The living room, the verandah and the bedroom are crafted with artistic british architecture. The garden is very colourfull and lovely. The valley view just from the varanda is exciting. The caretakers are the best you may imagine. Recepies prepared by the caretakers are served with courtesy makes you to feel like prince. My wife says that the best sleep in her life were the ones at waterfall estate. The tea grown in waterfall estate is the best. Tea prepared with the waterfall tea is one of the best i have ever had. Coming back to my place madurai i have now getting waterfall tea dust from the management by courier and enjoying the tea everyday with the nostalgic remembrances of our stay

This place is part of the guest houses maintained by the Waterfall Tea Estates. They are using this facility for letting out to public as well. The guest houses are very neatly maintained and each one of this has couple of rooms which are let out. They are located atleast 10 km before the valparai town on the way from Pollachi,

Each guest house has a cook who can really cook well, but don't expect lots of receipes. They are good at what they know. The place is very calm and is away from the main road, since this is a private property you can really enjoy the nature very well, have a long walk and relax.

You need to have your own vechile, else moving out and in is sligtly difficult.

Since there is not much places to visit in valparai, this would be a great one to stay. The elevation is okay, but still you can scale atleast 600 meters to reach the akkamalai, which is deemed as the highest peak in the area.

Room Tip: They have a website, you can choose seeing it. Since this is a shared accomadation having rooms clos...
