We reached the base at Avalanche, Destiny has a pick up station there around 3 kms from the resort. You are transported by an army truck, on dirt road viewing the beautiful mountain farms on one side. On reaching the resort we are in a state of bliss as we have arrived at a spectacular Scottish farm. The resort is in the middle of mountains with various shades of green, and a lake right in the centre. There is Moo house a stable with well bred Horses, a sheep pen and there is plenty. The rooms are well sized all with a view of the lake and the mountains. The luxury rooms are huge and with a fireplace. The restaurant is situated above the reception all view inclusive. The food is ok but the vegetables were organic fresh from their farms. The service also lacks a little but co-operative. Wifi available only in reception area. But this a place to enjoy in nature's lap. They grow cabbage, broccoli and capsicums, the place is marketed as a farm stay but no farming activities or visit. The spa is good and the picnic lunch by the lake was a delight inclusive of a small tent pitched. This place is to die for.

Was looking for a nearby destination (to B'lore) which was different from the usual commercial places and where my family (wife and two kids) could enjoy well.

Amenities :

A) The room was decent, not sound proof though, could hear any small noise outside.

B) Had to follow-up a lot to get hot water in the bathroom - they indicate fixed hours for it in the morning and evening and anything beyond, we are at the mercy of the house-keeping staff to get it working - took 45 min to get it fixed.

C) The walk down to the fishing pool and the walk back up is strenuous for people with knee problems or fatigued legs (quite steep), however this can be expected in a hill-station.

D) The agri-farming was nice, so was the dairy farm, horse-riding - they have excellent horses there!

E) Good spa!

F) Food was good, but quite expensive (comparatively). There were numerous flies and one actually fell into the dal we were eating. We were told it is the season. They could do something about this though..

G) There are good activities but most come with additional price. The highlight for us was the early morning walk - thoroughly enjoyed and went both mornings. The dog (jackie? ) made sure everyone started off (literally) and escorted us along with the guide to a very scenic spot (1/2 hour trek )which had a very private cottage (only one). Just one security guard to take care of this.

H) The karaoke session was nice with retro numbers.

Overall, very beautiful location, the bumpy ride makes it interesting and overall good fun.

Staff : Very courteous and helpful. One suggestion is the billing break-up can be improved to keep it simple and relating to the quote made before the trip. I found it quite complex. They can have reference to the quote in the bill (explicitly).

Hope this helps.

The hotel was like a home stay. There were more activities like horse riding, tea estate etc. The hotel was also conveniently located. But there was some difficulty to reach the hotel. The room was very much comfortable. The staff were hygienic and good. There was no delay in check-in and check-out time. Interior and exterior of the hotel was also good and well maintained. All the required amenities were there in the room and working properly. The food was also good in quality and price was also good. Candle light dinner was also provided by them. The staff of the hotel were very neat and mannered. I have no idea that I would recommend this hotel to travellers or not.

This place is perfect if you want to leave the noise and daily routine and come to a peaceful country side. There is nothing to disturb you. It is far from civilisation. There are quite a lot of fun activities. The cuisines are good. Hot water are available only twice a day. TV and Internet facilities are not available. Clean and a quite place. Perfect for retreat. The road trip from the parking to the main resort premises is quite breathtaking!

You can't ask for a better holiday. The property is located way off the road and guess what, even your boss can't call you cause there is no range here. This is a themed property. They have tried to bring the country side of Switzerland to India and they have done so successfully.

The ride to the property is an adventure in itself and you are taken off road on a 4 wheel drive. The farm is located at a valley and you will not get tired clicking photographs of the land scape. The cottages are nicely planned and well maintained. The staff is very hard working and helpful. They have a plethora of activities and you can easily spend two days at the place. They have facilities like fishing, horse riding, spa, etc. The rooms are great. The food is not complimentary and you are forced to dine with them as there is no other place nearby. Overall, this is a great holiday destination.

It was a picturesque location. The weather being another good part about this area. Food was good. Activities were good too, there are lot of indoor games as well and if you are going with family you can play these during the free time. If you're a yoga and meditation loving person, this is a blissful place to do that. Hot water is available only twice a day from 5 to 10 am and in the evening.

Overall stay was damn good. I visited with my family. Location was in the outskirts but it was nice to stay in calm atmosphere. It was a stay for 2 days. Interiors and furnishings were good. Staff members were co-operative and quick in attending the services. There was a view of lake and beautiful lawn from the room. Room was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. There was continental and Chinese food and it was good. There was no delay at check in and check out. There were activities like horse riding. Hotel did not arrange for sightseeing and it was arranged by themselves. It was very much value for money and would recommend other travellers. It is suggested to have enough room.

We went on a holiday. Must say its a little world of fairy tale farm stay. It's a complete holiday with peace. It's located around 25 km past Ooty that's near avalanche. It gives a total adventure feeling to travel till you reach resort. Great place for kids no doubt. Place is maintained very well. Though it is located on the outskirts of Ooty, they ensured all the amenities are in place. You can go fishing, horse riding; few activities are paid however, few are with the package. Food was a la carte. Excellent service from staff. Awesome place!!!

I have been there with my office team mates and had lots of fun.

They don't have swimming pool and it's not required in this place. They have spa and massage facilities. Rooms were good and they don't provide TV but they have bonfire and Karaoke. In addition to this, they provide monkey crawling, horse riding, a small morning trek . In indoor games they have carom, Table Tennis and Foos ball. On outdoor games they have badminton and cricket.

Food is very good and service is quick. Please keep 2 hours extra for your travel time and you won't find phone network there. Overall, the place is heaven and don't forget to keep good camera with you.
