Feel at home within 16 comfortable Chalets that are designed with recycled material and adorned with every amenity imaginable. The Chalets are situated among the tea patch and offer guests breathtaking views of the forest canopy and tea estate that provide for lasting memories. Experience the vibrant shades of nature all at once.
Each chalet consists of a bedroom, washroom, living room and private deck.
Guests can experience the waves of mist that appear in a split second and last just as long. Raindrops hitting the earth with a happy thud followed by the sublime sound of streams that mysteriously come alive as if on some secret impulse.
The symphony of birds chirping in cross-rhythm to the throbbing of Toads and the hustle and bustle of Squirrels; relenting, responding, corroborating to the changing pattern of weather and finally the deep, quiet hush that the rainforest succumbs to. It’s a fitting introspection to dazzling biodiversity.
