Sterling Yercaud is perched on a rocky ledge atop the mighty Shevaroy Hills. It has 69 well-appointed rooms looking down at lush coffee gardens. The resort is an architectural marvel with a scenic view from every room. You can sit on the porch, sip aromatic coffee and watch the sun go down beyond the valley. Yercaud is a small hamlet formed around a beautiful lake with thick forests and pretty gardens around it. Sterling Yercaud is at a walking distance from some key tourist spots like Lady’s Seat, Gent’s Seat, Children’s Seat and the Rose Garden. At dusk, you get a fantastic view as the Salem city lights up at the foothills.
You can start your day at the resort with yoga, or head straight for the pool. The resort can also arrange customized treks, road trips, night safaris, bird watching tours and nature walks. Yercaud is a great place to explore by cycle, which can be hired from the resort. If you are up for some indoor or outdoor games, then the resort's Holiday Activity Centre is the place to be.
Head to Zing, the multi-cuisine restaurant at Sterling Yercaud, to try the local delicacies of the region. The restaurant offers buffet and an a la carte menu to choose from. Do remember to try the chicken Vellai Kurma - a striking white Kurma made with coconut and cashews, and Meen Varuval - the traditional fish fry, during your stay.
