Home Stay - The Hidden Valley


The soothing vistas of coffee plantations at The Hidden Valley and the fragrance of fresh coffee beans will linger in your memory long after you have left the holiday home behind.

The Hidden Valley offers you a number of activities. You can walk in and around the estates and if you are lucky, spot a few wild animals. A guided tour of the coffee-growing process is quite an interesting experience. The sports enthusiast can enjoy a game of basketball, badminton or target shooting with an air rifle.

For those who just want to relax, sitting on the lawns of the estate house, a good book and a hot pot of coffee is pure heaven. You could even unwind under the sky on a coracle or a raft on the mini lake.


Unlimited Wireless Internet access is provided complimentary at the Estate House for those of you who just have to plug into the web and access those important emails.

The TV in the living area has satellite programs and an attached DVD Player for those nights that you may want to watch the match you didn't want to miss or a movie.

Mobile phone access is limited. Airtel has limited coverage at certain points in the estate. Vodafone does not have coverage in estate areas as of now. But that’s the point of a retreat, to get away from those annoying calls and messages. BSNL, however offers full mobile coverage.
