SAAM’s Cliffhanger Service Villa in Wayanad


SAAM’s Cliffhanger is located at Valathur in Meppadi Panchayat near Rippon tea estate. It is tucked away 3.5 kms from the Kozhikode-Ooty highway. The property’s almost lies at the western-most point of Wayanad district. You can hear and see the Chaliyar River gushing by, 3200 feet below the cliff-face from the villa’s front yard. The panoramic view of the valley from the terrace is spectacular with the crest of Chembra hills on one side & dense forest on the other. The climatic conditions are extremely pleasant as morning and evening temperature rarely exceed 20oC.

The property’s periphery is fenced and water is in abundance. There is a natural spring that originates within the confines of the estate and flows down into the Chaliyar river. The property is a fully functioning plantation estate that grows coffee, pepper, areca nut, cardamom and many varieties of fruit trees. The dining area is kept open allowing for the mist to surround you as you enjoy our chef’s traditional delicacies. This also gives our guests a chance to experience the glorious panoramic view that the villa has to offer. The first floor has an open terrace and 4 bedrooms with attached modern bathrooms. All bedrooms have separate balconies and are elegantly furnished.
