Experiential Holidays

Why stay in a hotel room when you can have the entire property to yourself. At Tranquilitea we offer privacy and exclusivity at all four of our properties which are spread across the resort towns of Coonoor and Ooty in the Nilgiris. Each of our properties are self contained, fully furnished in teak and rosewood furniture and come with its own team to take care of all your requirements be it arranging for your meals, organising a walk in the woods, a sight seeing tour or whatever else you may fancy. Each of our vacation bungalows, villas and suites have their own bedroom, living room, dining room and a manicured garden so you don't need to share your space with anyone else unlike in a hotel or a resort.

Gourmet Nilgiri Teas

While you are in the Nilgiris come join us for our gourmet tea tasting experience. Held within our tea estate, the experience is designed to take you on a sensory journey through the myriad colours, aromas and flavours of gourmet high grown Nilgiri teas. We invite you to experience first hand what goes in to making some of the worlds finest teas guided personally by us in our tea estate on the slopes of Tenerife Hill in Coonoor.

For those of you who can't make it to our estate we also ship our specialty teas the world over. Do have a look at our catalog for more information on our specialty teas.

About us

We are a family owned enterprise and have been in the forefront of the tea industry in the Nilgiris for four generations. We pioneered the first modern 'Crush, Tear & Curl' factory in the Nilgiris and started the small tea growers movement in the region which today accounts for the vast majority of the tea produced in the Nilgiris. In 2004 we started the first tea house in the region to focus exclusively on gourmet Nilgiri teas. A couple of years later we started our boutique experiential holidays in the region geared towards guests who were looking for an exclusive, bespoke and memorable holiday experience. We welcome you to experience the world of Tranquilitea.
