“Placid Home”
Reviewed June 6, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Well, the place xannadu is one of its kind , and I feel very lucky to be there for a couple of days. The view from the lawn of xannadu , where the mountain meets the plains with cloudy sky above gives extreme pleasure to your eyes. Words fall short to describe such place . I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Hospitality and service were as good as the place itself, kudos to Dharam Singh.

Definitely, I am visiting this place again.

Exceptionally beautiful and serene place. Excellent hospitality​. Worth every penny spent! Forget sightseeing , once you get here all you'd want to do is spend time on the villa , cosy up with a book or just enjoy the gorgeous view! Will definitely visit again

“Heaven on top of a Cliff”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Xanadu is a different world and you'll be stunned if you get a chance to live there. The beauty you see with naked eyes just cannot be captured through a lens so, the photos just cannot do justice to the real splendid view Xanadu offers. Aparna who owns Xanadu did make sure we have a great holiday and the care taker, Dharam Singh, took care of us really well.

Last but not the least, wake up for the sunrise, don't miss it at all - If you miss the Sunrise from Xanadu, you're missing a lot.

Our idea was to get some quiet family time - well appointed villa to do just that against a lovely backdrop. Entire experience was smooth, from booking to bye-bye. Thanks.

“a piece of tranquility and far from the madding crowd.”
Reviewed May 3, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Xanadu is a little gem of a place situated about 8 kms from coonoor. It is perched on the edge of the cliff which is what is the best part of the house. Mornings and evenings are dream like to see the sun set and rise right into your room. The house itself is very tastefully done with no compromise on quality in all the amenities provided. From the crockery to the linen everything is well chosen.
The housekeeper is friendly and can stir up a pretty decent meal.
WHo needs food when you have such an ambience.
The owner Aparna is but a phone call away and extremely helpful.
The perfect place to chill and do nothing but laze, walk, eat and read.
Activities etc are not far way if one wants to pack in but......
Will definitely come back ...
