Every time we get a long weekend hubby decides to go on a short trip. We usually prefer to cover Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka as we love road trips and these are the places we could cover easily. 600 kms would be the maximum distance and this time we decided to do Kerala, as last time it was Coorg, Karnataka. We decided to do Wayanad and Ooty together but Ooty was too crowded and we literally came running back. Thankfully we spent 3 days and 2 nights at Wayanad.
The property where we stayed was amazing that I wanted to skip Ooty and extend our stay at Wayanad but we didnt ! I never thought I would ever do travel related posts here but it just happened :) If you are expecting only make up and shopping here then you can skip this post :P Else, enjoy the pics and read on to know more about our trip.
|Hill Tree Inn, Wayanad|
Wayand is 600 kms (approx) on road from Chennai and it took 12 hrs for us to reach there with more than a couple of breaks that includes the one for break fast and lunch. We chose a 4 star property called Hill Tree Inn and they were only a few months old, so we couldn't check any reviews in trip advisor. Though we were skeptical, the pictures of the property left me drooling and also we were keen on keeping the little one occupied when we could enjoy nature. The property comes with an infinity pool and a play area for kids. So my daughter was really excited as much as me and hubby !
The temperature was pleasant with rainfall in the evenings. We didn't need any jackets or sweaters. All we needed were umbrellas. It was a much needed break for us from the hot sunny days at Chennai.
After our lunch we reached the hotel where we were greeted by the manager along with cold towels and a drink ! The property was a real feast for our eyes !! We couldn't wait to crash into our rooms after the really long road trip. The initial formalities were real quick and we loved our room [the pic above is a view from our room], our stay, the food and the service too :) Without saying anything more, I shall let you enjoy the pictures :)
