This was my second visit and it get better and better. It's a little hard to get there, so get in contact with the owner Mr. Chengappa on your way. You need to leave your vehicle in their parking at the foot of the hill and get on the Jeep of the estate. The journey of 3. 5 km uphill is awesome, with the drive through the steep road amid complete greenery and also the private waterfall on the way. At night, you hear the soothing sound of the water while climbing.

Then place is amidst complete greenery with hills around you. We were 3 cousins and stayed in the tranquil building with a balcony to add to the experience. We had running hot water in the room.

The place looks even more awesome early in the morning in the mist around. A number of trekking tracks start from here( Infact Mr. Chengappa shared a book which has details of all these tracks).

We took the tadiandamol trek and it was once in a lifetime experience. There is one more trek which goes from top of a waterfall(we had taken this dieing our first visit previously).

Infact we can just roam around the estate watching birds, plants, taking a bath in its private waterfall or just Reading a book.

The buffet served is tasty and sumptuous.

Oh a special mention will be the natural stream flowing beside this, however it was bit blocked with the bushes on the fencing :(

Looking forward to visit it again!!

I had visited this hotel with my family for holiday trip. The best part of the hotel was the appearance. The overall service of the hotel was good. The destination of the hotel was good. The check in and checkout was done on time at the hotel. The location of the hotel was good. The appearance of the hotel was good. All the facility was provided in the room in working condition. There was no activity arranged by the hotel.

The overall experience was good in the hotel. The hotel had provided lunch on time. I had booked this room by online. The activity was not available at the hotel. The front office person was good.

Coorg is a great place to visit any season and offers abundance of opportunity for multiple activities for nature lovers.

This property is located on a hill which can be reached only by their jeep. Property is surrounded by beautiful greenary and plenty of open space. Their are few natural falls and forest and mountains in the surrounding. The appearance is just outstanding.

The rooms offer 24 hour fresh hot water facility. The rooms are good enough but nothing great. Food there are limited options available and I felt they can improve in the quality and taste of food which is reasonably priced.

The surrounding nature offers abundant opportunity for any activities but not many by the hotel. They have a mini library with good collection of books.

The pricing for the stay is also attractive enough for one to visit this.

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
