Good place to stay

Posted 2 Jun, 2016

We a group of 5 family members stayed for 3 nights from 16/05/2016 to 19/05/2019 in the Green Nest Resort in Deluxe Rooms. We selected this resort on seeing its wonderful reviews in many travel sites. We really had a wonderful stay up to all our expectations in almost all respects. The check in and check out process were so fast and prompt. The reception and the restaurant staff were very well behaved and also very hospitable. The rooms and even the surroundings are maintained so spick and span. Although the location approach is observed little cumbersome through the narrow roads and tea gardens the ultimate end point of the road boasting with the Green Nest Resort surrounded by the lush green tea gardens is so eye catching with all the fresh greenery and unpolluted beauty that too in a very quiet, healthy and refreshing atmosphere. The food provided was also quite awesome and tasty although they can try to add some fresh fruits, fruit juices and salads in their buffet breakfast menu. The hospitable services of Thiru Kadhir in the restaurant is worthy to mention. The main finest experience we had was about the emergency services they rendered in the midnight when one of our family members had to be rushed to a nearby hospital for treating for the continuous vomiting. It was about 12/30 am when we had to request the resort front office officials for assistance to go to any nearby hospital who were quite ready to help us out in taking us by their car and saw that the patient was treated immediately by the KMF (a Missionary) hospital who were also very helpful in giving the instant treatment with which the patient also recovered fast. The timely assistance rendered by Thiru Sivalingam from the front office is worth mentioning in this regard who took all the pains to drive the car and waiting for the full time of about more than an hour till the patient was treated in the hospital. We were so impressed when he took all the pains to ring us up again inquiring about the health of the guest after 2 days of our check out calling our personal phone. The panoramic view from the balcony of the rooms are so green and beautiful and almost all the 8 rooms observed to have good green and panoramic views. The assistance and co-operation rendered by Thiru Prashanth Srinivasan from the Resort's Administrative Office (Coimbatore)while and after booking (online) the rooms in following up with our comfort level in the resort were also worth mentioning. However, the so announced 'WiFi' availability does not seem to be working mostly which the Resort can ensure for the guests for its definite availability. Overall, we highly recommend this awesome Resort for everyone who prefers to have a calm, peaceful and relaxed stay in the beautiful Nilgiris while we wish to head there again whenever we plan our next trips too with family members or friends.

Posted 15 Sep, 2012

Green Nest is excellent & Food was fantastic. I stayed on 20.07.2012.Very comfortable stay without any worries. This is the place which is located around 27 km from Ooty. More I can tell this is the best place for "honeymooners" as it is located away from the City & center place of Green tea Estate. Definitely it will be evergreen experience if you walk through the greenfield around Green Nest.Care taker Siva & Other staff behaved very Gently & encourage/help Guests to make us very comfortable.I wanted to see the Cricket match,there was no Ten cricket Channel. It was activated immediately on my request. Thanks for the same:) I had a chance to speak with owner "Mr.Sreenivaasan" who also talked very gently. I have a request here. I wanted to go to Kothagiri to Ooty to catch my Toy train. But we do not have Indica car & hope Xylo was available which costs 1100 rs/2 person.I arranged on my own which costs around 650rs to Ooty. It will be great if you have your own vehicle for transfer such like this.Apart from it everything was fantastic.Thanks to the each and every staff who is in GreenNest for the wonderful resort & your hospitality.

Perfect place to rejuvenate and soak in nature's beauty

Posted 3 May, 2016

Well-maintained resort, miles away from the city hustle. The approach road is designed to test the limits of your car it seems, but the drudgery ends the moment you enter the resort. Ensconced in picturesque tea plantations, the only sound, rather music you hear is the chirping of birds. As you explore the surroundings, experience gets better and better. Rooms are nice, spacious and very comfy. Of special mention is the view from the balcony. While it is no jungle, whichever way you turn, stunning vistas greet you. Food :The barbecue is to be ordered well in advance, something which we regret not paying much heed to. Nevertheless food was tasty, in fact pepper chicken was the best I have had! Long story short, I loved the resort and wanted to stretch my date with nature, but all hopes were shattered owing to the dreaded availability! Finally, with a heavy heart and grumbles against life and it's modernities had to drag myself back to Bangalore. We took Bangalore-Krishnagiri-Salem-Annur-Mettupalayam-Kotagiri route both ways(415 km door to door). PS : No we didn't get to see the bisons.

Awesome ambience, good food and excellent service

Posted 23 May, 2016

One of the best resorts I have stayed in. The staff was extremely polite and courteous answering our over enthusiastic group's questions. The owner Mr. Srinivasan and his wife seemed extremely warm and gentle and gave us tips on how and what to see around the place. The serenity of the place would be the highlight of Green Nest. In the activities section one can trek to the nearby hill and get a full 360 view of the surrounding place. Cycling is mentioned in the website but wasn't there when we asked. Am assuming it may be because of the steep roads that they don't encourage visitors. Apart from that there are things you can do within the resort like play football, cards etc. Please do not expect a lot of noise and fun. It is a quiet serene place meant to slow you down and it does exactly that.

Good place for stay

Posted 16 Jun, 2016

This is truly an amazing Resort totally surrounded by Greenery. The view from the Rooms is breathtaking. The Rooms are very spacious and neat. The rooms on the 1st floor have a better panoramic view. The food is excellent. The warmth & the hospitality of the staff is unmatched. We were here for 3 nights, but were still craving for more. In fact this was the case with every other guests, who all wanted to extend their stay. But unfortunately all the rooms were totally booked well in advance. We had a chance to meet their MD Mr. S. Ramkumar who takes a keen personal interest. He is a gem of a person and a very nice human being. Hats off to him for maintaining the place so well. We will certainly be back.
