Where to stay in Coonoor

The hill station of Coonoor boasts an array of accommodations, representative of its status as an established resort town. The roads that wind their way across the ridges house a number of squat hotels, stylish boutiques, and--on the more residential streets--welcoming homestays. Some heritage hotels can be found, offering a particularly quaint style of luxuriousness. Retreats, with onsite yoga centers, pools, well-maintained gardens, and fine-dining restaurants, tend to position themselves at the extremes of the hill station, to ensure they enjoy extensive views of the landscape.
