Eco Hotels

Set in a 4 ½ - acre expanse of breathtaking beauty, this unique Eco- Resort sits in the backdrop of a natural tank and a free-flowing natural stream. Its gardens are nature’s haven for resident, endemic and migratory birds, some of whom return faithfully every year. Butterflies and other jungle fauna roam carefree in the orderly but natural environment. The highlight of TOC is the captivating sight of the odd elephant ambling across the gardens on a tranquil evening, on the way to its favorite waterhole.
