We searched this property through rigorous search on internet and different websites available nowadays. As this trip was a family leisure trip, I was quite concern about the location. We were looking for a property which is in the middle of the Jungle and should have all the comforts too.

After our visit to Wayanard we directly approached Honey Valley. From Wayanard to this place we took around 4-5 hour ( as we kept on enjoying different site scene during the journey). We reached this place around 6 O'clock in the evening. It was raining whole of our journey from Wayanard to Coorg. The driver of Honey valley was waiting for us (as we informed Mr. Suresh - Property owner when we reached Virajpet) at the base location which is 3-4 km from the property. We shifted our luggage to that old 4 x 4 jeep and had never before journey to the property. It was amazing experience for which we paid 200/-.

As we were 6 member including 4 kids of age group 10-18, we bought old cottage area with six beds. It was a neat and a newly renovated room with six beds and two attached bathrooms. We settled and inspected the surroundings in that drizzling weather itself. We found this property better than our expectations and the reviews we went through before booking it. By this time it was heavily raining and time for dinner. We walked (in fact ran to) the main dinning hall which was at a distance of around 200 meter and at upper side of the hill (Let me tell you this property is on the hill top). Dinner was amazing with the amazing samabhar rice. Again I should mention that food was amazing with extra charges. I. E. 180/= per person but it is worth it.

Next morning when I woke up at around 5 AM, it was still drizzling and was dark outside but whole of the place was full of chirping of birds. I dozed for 30-40 minutes more and sat outside our cottage where there were 4-5 chairs available for guests. I never imagined such a beautiful view it would be but it was. I was feeling very satisfied and content.

I waited for my kids to wake up on their own, finally I couldn't stop myself from waking them up as I felt they were missing a lot of stuff they had never gone through or imagined while in Delhi. We enjoyed the weather and mother nature for another 1-2 hour and left for dinning hall for breakfast (which was again very good).

After breakfast I had chat with Mr. Suresh and asked him about the tracking routes after which he advised for Chingara Fall area (Let me tell you that this property has got a private water fall) as other tracking routes are full of leaches. As we never ever heard about leaches and wanted to track to upper side of the hill(Fall area was at lower side of the hill) we started tracking one of the predefined tracks. Let me tell you this property has 3-4 dogs and one of them started leading us for the predefined track. Wherever we changed the predefined track by mistake he just stopped there and waited for us to come back to the same place and follow the right track. This cute dog gave us sense of security till the time we noticed leaches on our shoes. I personally saw a leach first time but it was a scary experience and my daughters got scared even more, so we came back very fast and spent around half an hour to get our shoes and legs cleaned of these leaches.

Around 10 am we started moving towards Chingara water fall but rain started in the beginning itself and it was slightly cold also, so we decided not to visit fall today. Whole day we enjoyed the weather and played indoor game with kids.

Next day It was day to check out from the property and kids insist to have breakfast with Mrs and Mr Suresh (you can imagine how tasty food they must be serving). We left around at 10 am, sky was clear and it was cool breeze all around while going down to base location I asked driver to go through the Chingara Water Fall. It was amazing and we were just spellbound. We spend few minutes there, took few snaps and left with regret of not visiting this fall yesterday.

This stay of two days with Honey Valley is a unforgettable life long memory. Whenever I would get a chance to visit this place I would love to visit this again.

I am a frequent traveller and always plan our stay near to nature. But this was my first experience where I felt like living in a DREAM place. If any of you are looking for a property in low budget and in the lap of mother nature just spend few days here, you will definitely be going back to this place again and again.

I wish Mrs. & Mr. Suresh a long life and hope they will keep this property as beautifully close to nature as it is.

Regards,

Sanjeev Singh

I went with my husbands team for outing. It was great experience. Adventurous ride to the home stay. Calm place. Outside the city noise. You can relax enjoy in this place. Also the trekking can be done to near tandianmol Hill. We went to trekking. It was great view there. The valley had their own water falls which is wonderful. Awesome stay.

Very nice location, good service for room and food. It's pleasant place for couples and family, it's a Hill Station. You can feel like, you're staying in your home. Visit one falls and more water pass near the Valley, it's beautiful. Green area, it also very nice enjoy life in this place.

I had been to Coorg for honey moon and stayed in this hotel. It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was outskirts of the city. The staff members in the hotel were helpful, friendly and quick in services. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was nice. I ate food in the hotel and it was good in quality and taste, and the price was affordable. The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. There was garden view from the hotel room. There was no delay in check in and checkout. Overall, I was satisfied with the stay and it was value for money and I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.

I visited Coorg and stayed in Honey Valley Resort was good. Trip was in the month of April 2015 with my friends. Appearance of the resort is like home stay. There was problem in check in and check out process. Staff service was good. I ate food in the resort was good in taste and hygienic. There were no activities conducted in the resort. Room allotted to me was good. Falls view was good. I would like to suggest the resort management to improve in power facility.
