Talayar Valley Bungalow

The Talayar Valley Bungalow first started off life as the tea plantation manager’s bungalow and still today it exudes colonial character. Located just 20km from the town of Munnar you will experience a rural idyll, whilst only being a short car journey away from civilisation. The Bungalow itself is tastefully decorated and all rooms are all extremely spacious and beautifully decorated with antique furniture and luxurious fabrics.

As the name suggests the Sun Rise room provides the perfect vantage point from which to witness daybreak should you be an early riser and 180-degree views of the stunning vista. Dating back to the 1930’s the estate has well established rose and vegetable gardens and of course its’ fully functioning tea plantations. An afternoon spent getting lost in Talayar Valley’s luscious grounds would be one well spent. The estate also borders the Eravikulam National Park, from where you can go in search of a huge variety of flora and fauna.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
