Luxury Lake Forest Hotel Yercaud Hill Station Tamil Nadu
Located close to Salem and situated 4,700 feet above sea level in the Shervarayan Hills of Tamil Nadu is Yercaud , a quiet hill station with untouched natural beauty. Lakes, plantations, estates, English bungalows, walk ways and trek zones etc… INDeco’s Lake Forest Hotel is set in the Eastlynne Farm Estate, a live coffee plantation on the banks of the Yercaud Lake, created by Ms.Henrietta Charlotte Rosario during the 1800s. The hotel has evolved around ‘Rosar’. Once called AVIEMORE, ‘The Rosar’ has been carefully restored to its original glory and is a reflection of the pride of the past centuries. Most of the rooms have been raised on the ruins in the estate, maintaining the regal Anglo-Indian style of Architecture of the late 1800’s.
Converted into a heritage hotel, hospitality and indulgences co-exist here with lake views and the forest. Importantly, accommodations have been created only where nature has permitted such developments, within the ecological niche of the place using all traditional practices to protect the land, its heritage and ecology. This continues to be a signature project for reuse & recycling practices. The Fortune Magazine awarded the concept as the sixth of the top 10 ideas to green the world.
Not an ounce of fresh wood has been acquired from the forests; other sources have been utilized for the creation of the Lake Forest hotel. Condemned wood and wooden structures from palatial buildings in whatever form, are continuously collected, restored and re-used. The joy of saving condemned wood & living trees is far more than saving huge sums of money. This cannot in any way be construed as an act of cost controlling or saving because in most cases it ends up in phenomenal cost escalation.
