Set high in the hills of Kodaikanal, The Tamara Kodai provides a luxurious, heritage experience unlike any other. More than 2000 m (6,500 ft) above sea level is a picturesque property dating back to the 1840s. The building itself was originally called Baynes Bungalow after British District Judge Baynes who owned the edifice. True to the Tamara philosophy of Sustainable Good Life, this luxury resort too was built with sensitivity to the surrounding environment, using efficient and sustainable design, and respecting the importance of the building and its history. One can enjoy 450 sq. ft. of exquisite colonial interiors, and world-class facilities in a superior luxury suite or bask in the breathtaking view of the hills of Kodaikanal from the balcony of a luxury suite.
