Weekend-ulgence 2

July 10, 2010

In continuation to Weekend-ulgence 1,

Since we had seen Yercaud before, we decided to just chill and relax this weekend 🙂 Darshit loves to relax and so this weekend was dedicated to him!  And what else can be the best place than Sky Roca, Yercaud!

Yes! Undoubtedly the best place in Yercaud.  It is cozy and is snuggly settled on the 20th hair pin bend of Yercaud. 

I do not think you need to go out of Sky Roca to see the beauty of Yercaud.  Sky Roca gives you the most mesmerizing view of this beautiful hill station which can hold you there for hours and days together.  

Sky Roca is built on the 20th hair pin bend with all the balconies of the room facing the valley.  You feel like a speck on the top standing tall to touch the clouds that welcome you the moment you enter your balcony.  And you are left speechless.



 Mornings are so beautiful with sun shining through the shallow layer of mist spread over the valley that you just want to sit next and read 🙂

Evenings are equally mesmerizing with golden rays peeping from clouds and you just wish time comes to standstill at that  very moment.

Night falls over the valley with equal grace and charm and colors you blue as you stand there!

A raw freshness, slight drizzle, sparkling rays, blue twinkling sky and humming breeze just leave you speechless!

You cannot ask for more. 

But there is more… The rooms are equally spacious and comfy and food is one of the yummiest I ever had.

The staff is very cordial and will make you feel home in this beautiful abode.

Though initially against just relaxing on weekend, I had no regrets following Darshit blindly 🙂

We returned home smiling en route the same roads with the same flowers waving us as we passed by them 🙂

    I came to your blog through Ramesh’s space. I really like your style of writing.
    Living in Bangalore, taking a break in Yercaud is the easiest thing to do, one can never get tired of this beautiful place.
    We always stay in the Sterling Resorts which is also beautifully located with breathtaking views.
    We live in Whitefield and i can understand how you feel about the traffic in Bangalore.
