Went there 3 years ago. In June of 2011. This was one of our scariest and amazing amazing of our trips in one go. So this is how it unfolded:
My wife was pregnant at that time. So we were advised by the hotel staff to take there other property in the main city. We should have taken the advice.
We still went there. This place is pretty much outside Ooty. It took us couple of hrs just to get there, as we got lost in between. You will think you are entering a Jungle, as u follow the road there. When we finally reached there, it was already 8 pm. And we had just reached there parking lot. From there it was 2 km more where you can't take ur car. You have to go in a four wheel drive armored truck provided by Destiny people.
What followed was one of the most scariest journeys of our life. we could not see of more than 10 meters because it was a jungle. And due to my wife pregnancy, we were very scared after the journey to the actual resort. After reaching there, at night we wanted to consult a doctor, which was impossible due to the remote location of the resort.
But next morning, as soon as we opened our cabin door, we thought we were in heaven. The view is amazing. It will stay with you for ever. The whole place is just plain BEAUTIFUL. The walk around the resort just kept lightening our mood. The activities were relaxing, like fishing and farm activities. Also adventure, like rappelling ad trekking and all.
As we had gone during monsoon, bonfire was not possible, but i have heard that the way that is organized, its simply superb. Food was OK, better than average, but no alcohol. So get your own stuff if going there, as you will need it and enjoy it as well.

Take a big vehicle and go in a group. Its a an amazing place to go to save the location / approach

It was a pleasurable experience, I would recommend people to board this and the service was really good. I would suggest hotel staff to build a rapport with customers and be friendly so that customer will visit again , and you should keep price economical which is very good and which will help all. Keep up good work.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and definitely it is an unforgettable stay. This farmhouse hotel is little far from crowded Ooty town. Hotel is located on a hill top in front of avalanche lake. Suitable for nature lovers. Service and food is good. Rates are little high but cannot miss this place. I will recommend this hotel.

Its a great experience, whatever you lose on the bumpy truck ride is changed into bliss once you reach the property, gives you the clint eastwood movie feel, a great place if you like to unwind and break from the city life, great food and they have added the evening karaoke attraction. There are adventure sports like mountain climbing, rappelling, horse riding, zipline, monkey crawling. Over an all a great vacation.

I stayed here over 2 nights. I had previously been here some 5 years ago. We had a good long drive from Bangalore. The last bit of approach is extremely hard on the tyres of the cars, but once we made it through we were in for a real treat.

The ambience of the log room and cottages are awesome, warm and homely. The staff are excellent and provide great service. Also there are a lot of activities that this resort offers and you can easily stay occupied for 4-5 days. Which means - to make the best of this resort, plan a long trip. Dont worry even the cheapest room is large and awesome. You can't go wrong with the rooms. A weekend just doesn't cut it. The weather of course is excellent and cool. A great break from the cities especially during the summer months.

I am a foodie and the one thing that I will forever remember about this place is the food. I have had one of the best food ever in this place. The quality of the food and the taste was simply out of this world. And of course, the food is brilliant. However I did not care much for the breakfast which was cold and dry - especially the breads which I so love. I felt very disappointed at not having fresh bread and dairy. But lunch and dinner, a la carte, more than made up for the bad breakfast.

Overall great place. The Farmstay property is quite offbeat from the main Ooty city. This is really amidst nature. Excellent property with good amenities, no TV so its good for a relaxing family time. Good rooms, we got a room just under the kitchen(on 1st floor). So it was noisy at night till around 12 midnight. A lot of outdoor and indoor activities, games etc. We loved fishing, glass painting for kids, horse riding was thrilling. It was a well maintained Spa and a good Ayurveda massage. The Tractor ride is a must-go option. A lot of pretty sights around this property. There are some activities included in the tariff but most of them are to be paid extra. All in all a very relaxing time. You need 4X4 vehicle or a sturdy vehicle like a Innova/ Tempo traveller to reach this place from Ooty. Normal cars will take a great deal of wear and tear. The terrain is rocky and hilly, no proper road available.

Visited the place to spend some time with family. Destiny farmstay was a good place to spend leisure time. Approach road from Ooty city to hotel was bad. But once you reach the place you will forget the bad memories. One good thing of the hotel is there is no TV in the room so that your entire time is saved for family. The restaurant and food was also good. On activities part the management should improve to some extent. Overall it was a great stay and would like to visit again.
