Vyna in Vythiri
If you are tired after a long drive, shrug off the weariness by taking a dip in the cool waters of the Vyna’s pool. The Vyna Hillock Resort has been built following a unique style of architecture. While stepping into the resort, you will get a feeling that structure had been inspired by bamboo stems. From the design of the reception area to wherever space allows, the natural feel of the bamboo stems had been incorporated.
The infinity pool is a treat for the eyes and makes a statement in itself. The cottages are built near the swimming pool reminding the historical truth that mankind always flourished beside water bodies. You can walk through narrow pathways bordered by bamboos to other cottages of the facility.
Vyna stands out as the cottages are designed in tune with the resort’s landscaping aesthetics. Instead of brick and mortar, the cottages are built of metal structures that could be shifted to other spots with ease. The handrails of the resort are designed like the bamboo sticks in the logo of the resort.
The rooms are spacious and interiors are arranged with great finesse. Without doubt, the highpoints of the rooms are the balconies. You can sip a cup of piping hot tea sitting on the balcony and savour the beauty of Vythiri’s light showers. You can also feel the soft caress of the thick mist that hangs in the air. But keep in mind that only rooms on the top floors have balconies.
The balcony will give a panoramic view of the expansive coffee plantations, the natural ponds and majestic trees, and the facilities that are put in place amidst the natural setting for adventure sports.
The ground and top floors have two rooms each. Camp fire is also ready if you want to sing and dance around the fire at night. The children can have a whale of a time as the vast meadows double up as the perfect playground. Bicycles are also available if you have a craving to pedal around Vythiri.
Spa, health club and play zone are housed in one building. You won’t feel like getting down from the treadmill as the view from the health club is simply astounding. While sweating it out in the gym, you get a wonderful view of the coffee plantations and the Chembra Peak.
The food served at the resort is lip-smacking especially beef and chicken-based dishes. Even the juices served along with breakfast have the unique Vyna stamp.
Vyna Hillock Resort is the perfect getaway to unwind and rejuvenate in nature’s lap.
