Riga Residency

Riga Residency is a star-class hotel located at Wellington, 6000 feet above sea level atop The Nilgiris or Blue Mountains - the oldest and highest mountain range in India, after the Himalayas. Wellington boasts of a climate both un-spoilt and fresh.

Perched on a hill-top, every room at the Riga Residency offers you spectacular views of the surrounding hills and valleys through full-length bay-windows (Picture to right) . The highlight of the view is the UNESCO World Heritage Nilgiris Mountain Railway (NMR) winding its way through the verdant Wellington valley. This train is a marvel of engineering that is over a century old and our guests can watch it chugging back and forth every hour from the comfort of their rooms.

Riga Residency's unique location between Ooty and Coonoor in the town of Wellington was chosen to maintain the fine balance between quiet green surroundings and accessibility. We understand that our guests enjoy staying in the lap of nature but would not want an un-necessarily long drive to sight see, shop or to reach the nearest train /bus station.
