Eta Carinae


Misty Mountains!

Amidst mountains and valleys, stands a cottage overlooking the marvels of Nature. The constant sound of a waterfall flowing in the valley nearby takes one into a meditative state. Located at Halakarai, a few miles off Coonoor, Eta Carinae will leave you awestruck with mesmerising views of valleys, mountains and the city of Mettupalayam dotted far away against the sky.

The cottage has three well appointed rooms, each room with an access to the breathtaking view outside.

The cottage is positioned at a height where you cannot miss any of the wonderful things unfolding in the mountains. There are three comfortable double rooms with en suite bathrooms. All the three rooms have a common living room and a dining space. There is also a common area and a sit-out for the two rooms upstairs. You can avail special packages to book the entire cottage when you come as a group.


Apart from offering a place to access Nature in one of its best forms, Eta Carinae has the following facilities to add more comfort to your stay:
1. Room service - limited menu
2. A common room with TV
3. Car rental services

The place offers a breathtaking view. It is an ideal place for those looking for some quiet time, cut away from the monotony of city life. But if you are an outdoor person, there are quite a few places to see and things to do while you stay at Eta Carinae.

1. Trek down the valley to the waterfalls.
2. Drive to Ooty or Coonoor for some sightseeing.
3. Drive to Dolphin's Nose to enjoy yet other grand view.
4. Visit the gorgeous Catherine falls.
5. Sit and relax at the veranda, sip on endless cups of tea and enjoy the quiet beauty of the place.
6. Play badminton or board games.

From Coonoor, take the road to Sims Park and from there proceed on the road leading to Kotagiri. When you reach the Bandishola junction, take the road on the right and proceed until you reach Halakarai village. Proceed straight from there and when you reach the end of the road, take left and drive ahead to reach Eta Carinae a few metres away.
