Once an imposing ancestral mansion, King's Cliff is a charming hotel that reminds you of civilization at its laziest, offering a panoramic view of the hills around the town while remaining withdrawn from the hustle and bustle of life down below. It's where time stands still,where tradition meets luxury, where one can take an early morning trek across undiscovered Ooty, or emerge from the calm void of sleep to a breakfast in bed, served with white gloves and the aroma of the faraway isles. Where yesterday lives on, and tempts you to live on forever. And when you wake up in the morning and look out of the window, all you see are clouds and hills. And all you hear is the chirping of birds...
Apart from the Hall, the Lounge, the Dining and the Refectory, there are nine rooms at King's Cliff, all with a working fireplace, and ideally meant for two. Although with the modern amenities of satellite television and telephone, each room has a unique charm of its own and is named after a Shakespearean character.
Cosy Prospero and Verona are equipped with two single cots each, while Othello, Macbeth, Hamlet and lago have cosy double beds. Both feature luxurious baths. Windsor Midsummer and Tempest are provided with a classic
double bed and the overwhelming luxury of a fine bathtub. Whenever required, some of these can come together to form suites.

Such as an open jeep jungle ride or fishing, a journey of discovery to a tea estate or horse-riding across the hills It's seldom the same, so do check with us to see what's on offer at the time. There's live music in the evenings, harmonies of the ages gone by. If, however, 'relaxing in bliss' is the motto of the day, there's always the lawn, to read or paint, or the fireplace - to cozy up...
