Vythiri Resorts lies at the heart of a picturesque Wayanad district on the Nilgiri hills in South India, at 2600 ft above sea level. Miles away from the dust, grime and din, it's a magical, romantic getaway tucked away in a lush tropical rainforest. The glorious sunrise never fails to bring out the shy poet in you. Break into a song with tunes set by a chorus of chirping, multihued birds. Let a rainbow of butterflies and dragonflies play hide-and-seek with you.
Spread across either bank of a sprightly mountain stream that runs through the 150 acre property, it is a delightful jungle hideaway and a naturalist's treasure trove. Wrapped in the cool embrace of a rainforest, stone lined pathways, canopied by majestic trees, lead to brick coloured cottages built in the style native to the region, the traditional planter's cottages in their ethnic styles take you back to an indigenous "tribal village" where simplicity and harmony reigned supreme. The day ahead is ripe with possibilities. You may chose to relax in your cottage, go for walks in the forest in the company of the resident naturalist, swim in the freshwater pool , opt for treatments at the Ayurvedic spa, play indoor games or take part in the many outdoor activities that the resort has included in its itineraries.
Here you are at complete harmony with nature. Untouched, unexplored and raw. The ambience is exclusive, comfortable and refreshing! An old British Colonial retreat, Vythiri is a holiday waiting to be discovered and rediscovered. Always fresh, completely unspoiled. Come, enjoy the glory of paradise. By yourselves.
