Nestled within the sprawling Lockhart Estate in Munnar, Lockhart Estate offers a captivating retreat amidst nearly 1500 acres of tea plantations. Established in 1879 during the British Raj, Lockhart Estate holds the distinction of being the first estate utilized for plantation in the Munnar region. Initially cultivating cinchona, it transitioned to coffee and eventually to tea, making it one of the earliest tea plantations in the area. Among the three colonial bungalows on the CGH Estate, the CGH Earth bungalow has undergone refurbishment to revive the charm of a planter’s life from a bygone era, providing the authentic hospitality of a traditional tea plantation bungalow.

Surrounded by lush green slopes adorned with tea bushes, Lockhart Estate offers a tranquil ambience where guests can immerse themselves in the rich biodiversity of the region. Ideal for those seeking respite from the fast-paced urban lifestyle, Lockhart Estate invites visitors to unwind and embrace the unhurried pace of life amidst the serene hills of Munnar.

Jimmy Patel’s passion for the wilderness, cultivated during his family trips to Sasan Gir National Park, has led to the creation of a new jungle lodge on the park’s periphery. This forest retreat embodies the essence of a safari experience, offering a village-style lodge deeply rooted in local culture, blending authenticity with luxury. Named “Aramness Gir,” the lodge’s name is a fusion of two Gujarati words, “aram” (peace/rest) and “ness” (local village), symbolizing its unique vision. As the only boutique lodge bordering Sasan Gir National Park, Aramness Gir offers a rare opportunity to witness the last remaining Asiatic lions coexisting with the semi-nomadic Maldhari tribe in their natural habitat. Check in here to escape the outside world and reconnect with nature, and with your loved one, this Valentine’s Day.
