It all started in 1989 when Mr. Sudarshan Motwani (founder of Orchid Square) first visited Coonoor. It was love at first sight with the Nilgiris.

He made it a point to visit Coonoor with his family so often that they eventually decided to build their vacation home right in the heart of Coonoor. By that time, Mr. Motwani had a successfully functioning business in Mumbai of selling Pen Products. Inspired by the massive tea plantations in Coonoor, he decided to also sell tea products and acquired some tea plantations in Coonoor.

Over the years, during his frequent visits to Coonoor, he had become fond of South Indian specialities, but always felt the need for good North Indian/Chinese restaurants in the region. This ignited the desire in him, to bring authentic North Indian food to Coonoor, which culminated in the opening two restaurants called Rangoli and China gate.

Today, Orchid Square Boutique Hotel has created a niche for itself, has multiple restaurants, deluxe and extra deluxe rooms, adapting and encouraging constant change. It now caters to the locals and tourists, offering substantial comfort and facilities. Known for its diverse food offering, menus are constantly updated with new specialities, while restaurants get constant facelifts and improvements.

Orchid Square would like to be known as the place where you come to rest and relax, where to come to enjoy a tasty, sumptuous meal, where you come with family or friends to create memories. Welcome.
