Leave all the trappings of urban life behind as you journey into the heart of tea country. With every winding turn and hairpin bend, your breath slows down. The fresh air is soothing as is the view of lush scenery in myriad shades of green. An overall sense of calm engulfs you as you are humbled by the sheer beauty of the undulating landscape. The Sinna Dorai's bungalows are an ideal example of the colonial-style homes built two centuries ago to make way for spices, coffee and eventually tea.

Snuggle Up
Listen to the silence while reading or writing or painting or losing yourself to the vast valleys and their spectacular vistas. It is very easy to do nothing but enjoy what Nature has generously seen fit to bestow upon us in these parts.

Sport - Tennis
Or perhaps you would prefer a genteel game of tennis? Let me warn you, the breathtaking view from the court may render it difficult to keep your eyes on the ball! You can even experience a 4 x 4 ride of a lifetime on unseen trails, through the grassland or through streams, and across boulder-ridden thoroughfares that I call roads.
