  Details
Overview
Talayar Valley Bungalow is a British built bungalow located at about 20 km from Munnar on the Munnar - Chinnar road to the famed sandal wood forests of Marayur. The bungalow is set amidst sprawling tea gardens and is gentle on you. It does not impose itself on you like a conventional resort. Living there is quite like spending time at home, with a difference of having your own personal array of service staff. It is a perfect getaway for city bred souls who find the sudden 'getaway ness' a bit strange initially, but it grows on you, so much so that leaving the tranquility, will bring back feelings of homesickness.

It's the place to read a book you love, a place to stare at the stars on a clear bright night, a place to sit around a bonfire and sing, a place to take a walk, a place to have a breakfast on the lawn and look up at the mountains all around, a place to catch up on bird watching, a place to savor the clean mountain air and a place to laze on a Sunday morning.
