Set high in the hills of Kodaikanal, The Tamara Kodai provides a luxury heritage experience. The building itself was originally called Baynes Bungalow owned by British District Judge, Mr. Baynes. One of the first few houses to be built in the region, Baynes Bungalow was sold to Father Louis Cyr in 1860, when it was renovated and reopened as La Providence. This stunning building was used as a rest houses for priests of Nagapattinam.

And now, a century and a half later, by guests of Tamara.
