If you are looking for a memorable holiday in India, Sterling Resorts can offer you a wide selection of luxury vacations in some of the loveliest places in India. You can take exotic holidays at the Sterling Resorts in Munnar and Kodaikanal. They are located in the flourishing green hill areas around South India, where you can experience some of the most beautiful scenery in South India.

The Kodaikanal Sterling Resorts

Visitors wanting to get away from the searing heat of South India summers flock to Kodaikanal to enjoy the cool refreshing climate. Kodaikanal also has wonderful scenic beauty, with its pine forests, mountains, and lakes. In Kodaikanal Sterling Holiday resorts offer two locations; the Sterling Lakeview resorts and Sterling Valley View.

The Lakeview resort is built in a more traditional Victorian style. It is surrounded by a beautiful scenario of mountains and forests. You can go for boat rides or even take hikes into the mountains. The accommodations are comfortable and relaxing. The Valley View resort on the other hand is more up to date with unique dome shaped rooms. Each room has a stunning view of the hills and valleys that surround the resort. Apartments for 1 and 2 bedrooms are also offered. Local Indian food or Continental cuisine is offered at the restaurants.

The adjacent airports are Coimbatore and Madurai, visitors usually hire a taxi service to get them to the resort from the airport.

Munnar Sterling Resorts

The Sterling Resort in Munnar can be found a little way out of the town of Munnar. It is actually in the small village of Chinnakanal, which has a backdrop of forests and tea plantations. There is a wide choice of accommodations ranging from studio apartments, cottages and guest rooms, with wonderful views.

Munnar can be found in the Western Ghats mountains located in Kerala. It is famous for its beauty and is a popular holiday choice. Because of its refreshing cool climate it offers visitors a welcome relief from India’s hot summer months. Its mountain scenery, coupled with beautiful tea plantations and forests beckon the tourists. Added to this is the fine cuisine of Kerala that invites tourists to sample the local food. This is created from spices like black pepper, cardamom, ginger and coconut that are grown in the surrounding hills. Tourists can walk in the cool forests or visit the picturesque tea gardens and spice plantations.

Nearby airports include Coimbatore, Madurai and Koch. From here you can take a taxi to the resort. The best time of year to visit this resort in Munnar is October to May, when you will not get trapped in the heavy monsoon rains, which come in June to September.
