All Neemrana properties are non–hotel Hotels, because they were originally built for other purposes. All efforts have been made to maintain the old charm of Wallwood Garden while ensuring more than the basic comforts that have come to be associated with the changes in lifestyle since the 19th century. Wallwood Garden offers a unique experience of seeing and ‘living’ history along with a range of local excursions to the tea estates that help our guests unwind and rediscover themselves. Nothing about the Neemrana experience is ordinary. Walk out to the Pomological Gardens to experience the vast species of trees and plants in Coonoor. Wallwood Garden also hosts anniversaries, birthdays and other memorable occasions.
The Pomological Garden at Coonoor is one of the three experimental fruit gardens or research centre for the State Agricultural Department. They do research on different fruits grown here – like pomegranate, apples, plums, and apricots.
