Dr Rao and Anne were great hosts. Breakfasts were fabulous. The Egyptian Room was very comfortable. Make sure you arrive at The Tryst in daylight so that you can take in the wonderful scenery. Dr Rao took us on a late afternoon walk and we heard a bird called 'the whistling schoolboy'. Magic.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, in this place, about a mile out of Coonoor amongst small villages and teaplantations. We enjoyed breakfasts in the well-maintained gardens (while tea-pickers worked just above us) and drinks/dinner in the conservatory / dining room (where the owners were welcoming and full of information on the local area: flora, fauna, social issues,...

I have seldom encountered such strange hosts and wonder why they would even open their home to travellers, as they clearly have no interest in them. Dr Rao is an extremely pretentious Indian doctor and his wife is from Liverpool, where they spend several months of the year in what she calls a 'static home'. Dr R's books are on...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Tryst homestay and even extended it by an extra night instead of a planned night in Ooty. We were looking for somewhere to relax in the midst of nature and that is exactly what we got. We loved our Egyptian themed room, had some great walks in the tea gardens (we even encountered...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tryst is for people who wish to relax and forget about their everyday world. It is for people who like to potter about Nature. It is a haven for birds, hares, porcupine, wild boar and the odd fox, deer, bear and bison. It is for people who wish to avoid pollution of all kinds and are looking for a quiet and clean spot. It is for people who wish a change from hotels and are willing to try something differentperhaps stay in a quaint but exclusive family-run Guest House tucked up in the hills at 6000 ft amidst splendid tea gardens. Welllook no further than The Tryst, Coonoor in the Nilgiri mountains that enjoys a very clement climate of 9 to 23C. ... more   less
