Sandeep was on the phone with us for several minutes guiding us into his driveway and there he was, in person, with Sathish, who turned out to be our one-stop window of solutions to any problem we might experience during our memorable stay at Tranquilitea. Sandeep is everything other reviews say of him, and more. As we relaxed over a... More

This is a very quiet and peaceful rural home stay on a tea farm with fantastic views over Coonoor. As 2 friends we had 2 fairly plain but very clean rooms with ensuite facilities, an extremely pleasant sitting room and adjoining dining room with fantastic views and access to a beautiful and private 'English' garden. It was very quiet and... More

Like many we found Sandeep an exceptional host, escorting us personally on 2 or 3 walks (best was that to the remote Toda village) , and giving us the unmissable tea-tasting that Conde Nast apparently rates the best in India! He offered to take us to dinner at the Coonoor Club but as one of us was feeling unwell we... More

When we were going to South India I really wanted to do a tea plantation stay and I looked at lots of different options. Although this homestay didn’t have too many reviews they were all good and I liked the photos of the house in the middle of the tea plantation. Eventually I decided on Tranquilitea and we were not...

We previously stayed at Tenerife Hill tea garden in Coonor. This trip we rented the bungalow in Ooty for our family party of six. Property located near the racecourse, within walking distance of the market. Good location for sightseeing of the area. Although every room has a working fireplace we only lit the fire in the dining room. It was... More

Tanquiltea is a lovely place for a weekend getaway. The bunglow takes you back to the times of the Raaj. Sandeep is a terrific host. The bunglow is incredibly cosy and the planatation walk very energising. I have not yet met anyone who knows as much about Tea as Sandeep! Donot miss the Tea tasting session

This place is a great stay as the name suggests. One can be assured to get tranquilized from the bustling life in a metro. Sandeep is an excellent host. the foods just authentic and great! PS : You do not get local food in Coonoor. Apart from this, I would recommend those who have an interest in history or roots... More

Like the name says its just tranquil. 5 mints drive from charring cross - easy access to all major spots. I am... More

Our first visit to Sandeep and his fine Farmstay was in 2013 to partake in his wonderfully instructive and knowledgable tea tasting session . We learnt more genuine facts about tea than we ever knew before . So enjoyable was the visit, the setting in the tea hills, the decor, the warmth of the welcome , that the following year... More
