Excellent for relaxed vacation

6.1/7

We stayed in this resort for 3 nights and 4 days. It is actually a coffee estate and the cottages are in the coffee estate. It is run by the family who owns the coffee estate. It has excellent view of Emerald lake. One can enjoy trekking, fishing and mountain biking in this place. They serve organic homemade food which is grown in the resort. The service is prompt and courteous. The approach road is a bit of a challenge and do not follow Google map as it would take you to a wrong direction. One should call up the hotel and get the direction from Ooty.

View is very good near to the resort.

5.6/7

The stay in this hotel was with my friends. This hotel is located in the outskirt of the city, and near to a lake. Parking facility was good. Complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi was provided to us. They had vegetarian and non- vegetarian food in this hotel. Activities like trucking, fishing were arranged in this hotel. Staff members in the hotel are helpful and friendly in behaviour. They had both room and cottages in this hotel. The room allotted to me was well maintained. I had nice view from my room. Overall, the stay in the hotel was value for money.

5/5
Posted 16 Jul, 2010

Excellent 2-day/night vacation destination. Right from the time I took the phone to call up My Vijaykumar, till the time we bid goodbye and drove back, I have only goo things to say about Red Hills. Certainly one of the best holidays I have taken. A few key points: - Booking was so easy. I found their number in this forum, called them up on Thursday for a booking on Friday & Saturday nights, and, Voila! Its done! No confirmation emails, no deposits, nothing. That was as good a start as any! - Reaching there was easy, only because of the clear instructions given. The important thing is to stop at Emerald and take a right towards Red hills. - The location, the views, the scenery are just awesome - arguably the best place this side of paradise - The Vijaykumars live there (mighty lucky couple they are, to be able to spend their whole lives in a place like that!) and are extremely warm and friendly. It was great fun talking to them. - The food is good and healthy, with variety. We got to eat South Indian, chinese and continental cuisine on the 3 days/2 nights we were there. It is indeed different from the normal hotel fare. Importantly, it tasted like home food, though with a difference - Lots of outdoor activities to look forward to - a walk down to the lake, a trek upto the tallest point (around 8000ft above msl) in the area, a drive to Emerald dam, another to the Parsons Valley and Porthimund, riding the mountain bike they have there, ample photo-shoot opportunities and most interestingly, the meek German Shepherd, Moby, who will play \'fetch\', by brining pebbles to you to throw and for him to retrieve - Lovely, big rooms, large, comfy beds, clean toilets etc - When we were there, there wasnt much of a crowd, which meant lots of privacy. As such there are only 8 rooms there, so even with a full-house, it wouldnt be too much of a crowd, I guess. - When we packed up and bid goodbye, we had this distinct feeling that we\'d be back again. The whole experience left a tug in the heart for us to keep coming back and bask in the lap of Mother Nature

4.4/5
Posted 9 May, 2010

Redhill Nature Resort is located about 30 kms from Ooty town. If you have a small car like I did, they give an option of leaving it behind in Ooty and they organise transport at a cost of 1200 - well worth it. A small part of the drive is treacherous. After 1 hour and 15 minutes, you realise why you paid the 5000 rupees for the night. The view is nothing short of breathtaking! The resort overlooks the beautiful \'Emerald Lake\' with tea and vegetable farms all the way in between. They have 8 rooms, of which 3 are front facing. We were lucky to get the front facing room. The experience was really romantic with a luxurious King sized bed overlooking huge windows which stretched from one end of the room to the other. The morning view can not be described and must be experienced. Be sure to let them know you need hot water. They need to fire it up. The dinner place was alright. A fusion between an English fireplace with an Indian look didn\'t go too well with me. The food wasn\'t something to rave about either. A walk into the vegetable garden was really awesome. I got to see where my lettuce, broccoli and baby veggies come from. Petting the cows was exotic in the farm unlike the cows in the city which we don\'t really care about! The weather turned against us which spoiled our fishing plans. We had to run along as the weekend was over. But the stay was too short. One night is not enough to really relax and enjoy the splendour of Redhill Nature Resort. The hosts were really nice people and so was their Alsatian Moby.

5/5
Posted 22 Sep, 2010

This turned out to be the most amazing holiday of my life !! The place was and so were Mr. And Mrs. Vijay! Not to forget the food too After a bit of survey on a couple of travel sites, we narrowed down our final destination to Ooty Red Hill Nature Resort'! We got in touch with Mr. Vijay right away and got the room on the rear side of the resort booked for ourselves - our stay was scheduled for two nights in April(mid) of 2010. We were a bit apprehensive about the temperature during the day time, but were sure that the nights would be pleasantly cold. We reached Ooty bus station in the wee hours of the morning. Mr. & Mrs. Vijay were kind enough to arrange for our ride to the Red Hills. We met Mr. Vijay's nephew at the bus station (who also own a home-stay, very close to the bus station) and since we wanted to freshen up a bit after a tiring bus journey, he offered to take us to his homestay to let us refreshen. Soon after, he offered us some hot coffee and that's when we met his wife too. We were immensely touched by such a cordial reception. Extremely friendly that they were, we chatted over coffee, and then made a move to head out to the Red Hills. We travelled half the journey by car, and then we moved into this jeep to cover the terrain that followed. So we set out again and after quite a few bends and turns on the rocky tract, we were reached our destination. And this place felt like a dream! It was a beautiful morning, the sun shone brightly on the greens surrounding the bungalow from the British times, and yet the air was crisp and chilly. Standing at this point, we could see levels of tea plantation, sloping down, the green converging with the serene Avalanche lake below, in the backdrop of the enchanting Nilgiris. I was extremely smitten by the scenic beauty of this place. Things felt complete when I saw the room that we were to stay in. White walls with white Victorian windows all around, the floor, the furniture, the fireplace, transported me to the British era quite instantly! I quickly freshened up and got out, only to find Moby (Mr. Vijay's dog) standing there to welcome me! I screamed, but the big guy didn't budge, nor did he bark! He was as silent as he could be and looked blankly at me. Thankfully my guy came back from Mr. Vijay's. Maybe Moby did realize I was scared and turned around to walk away. We then headed out to breakfast. Moby was there waiting for us again. I quickly realized that this dog was to do no harm. (In my entire stay at the Red-Hill, I didn't know what this guy sounded like. All he wanted was for people to play with him. He was extremely friendly. And he was beautiful! ). Neatly set up, the dining area formed the central portion of the resort - the common meeting place of all people in the resort. The food was delicious (we had dosas, sambar, omelette, bread and butter for breakfast - (everyday was different)) and both of us ate to our heart's content! It was quintessentially home-made food. (We were only beginning to feel how great the food was also going to be for the next two days! Yummy! Hehe. My guy and I are both foodies! And this place seemed like heaven !! Soon after, we met Mrs. Vijay and told her how much we enjoyed our meal In the afternoon, Vijay arranged for a trek for us, to the top of RedHills. Both of us had come in just a pair of flipflops each! Vijay was sweet enough to get us two pairs of trainers. We then changed into our gears and started for the trek. A group of three other people accompanied us - along with dog Moby! Moby was the brightest of all, he knew exactly which way to go and he'd patiently wait for everybody at a couple of milestones. The trek was not an easy one for me - considering I hadn't really moved around in some time, and the terrain sloping, and rugged! My guy was pretty active, as much as were the other people. I always kept lagging behind and Moby made sure I joined along! My cute little guy also had to reduce his pace because of me! Haha. So there we were. We had conquered the Red Hill! The glistening Emerald lake below! Splendid! Our way back was quite tiresome, I slipped a couple of times and since it was beginning to get dark, we couldn't take the route via the dense forest. We had to cut through plantations along the outer edges, and that took us quite longer than what it would have otherwise. Luckily, Rajendran (a local guide) helped us with the way back. By the time I reached the resort, I felt like I had conquered the world. My body ached, but the pain felt sweet. Totally, we trekked for about 4 hours. The next day, after breakfast, we headed out for a second trek through the tea plantations - this time downhill - to the Avalanche lake below. The trek wasn't as gruelling as the previous day, but it was quite a walk! We met a few villagers on the way and although we couldn't communicate with them in a particular language, they helped us out at a point where we thought we got lost! We finally reached the lake. It was placid. It looked beautiful. We sat there by the lakeside for about an hour and then headed back to the resort. Scrumptious as our lunch was, we felt like we had earned it! The time after that we were too tired to do anything else. We enjoyed every moment lazing around the resort. We hung out in the gardens, clicked some really great snaps, chilled out in the dining area, played some poker by the night - oh! That's when Mr. Vijay arranged for a bonfire. It was Saturday night. And just as people began to have some fun around the fire, it began to pour! Just what I wanted! It grew a lot chillier and I was enjoying every bit of it! We were to leave the next day, and it felt quite disheartening to leave that place, back to the humdrum of a busy life! I thought to myself how lucky Mr. Vijay were! Mrs. Vijay was a sweetheart! I asked her for the recipes of sambar and Dal and she patiently repeated them to me! We packed some yummy home made chocolates too for our friends back home! And the homegrown tea! The calm of the place, the amicable people of this place, have got my sweetheart and me wanting to come back here (Oh forgot to mention, the second day when we decided to laze around, a group of people went for a ride into the national park there! We missed a leopard they all saw that day!

Awesome experience to sum it up. The location is the best part of the entire experience and the hospitality given to us by Mr.Vijay and his wife were excellent as well. For eg: we wanted a receipt for our payment on the last day and they didn\'t have the receipt book so they said they would post it to us. Within a week and a half we got the receipt by registered mail to our Hyderabad home address. We really enjoyed every moment and would love to go back there again and also strongly recommend it to our friends and others.

Posted 24 Mar, 2010

The view from the resort is beautiful. I made the right choice to visit this place. You will feel lucky to wake up to see the Emerald lake from your window early in the morning. It is calm and pristine. This is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen in my life. It is about 28 kms from Ooty. Some parts of this road is pathetic and please ensure that you have a 4 wheel drive before venturing into this terrain. The resort owners do give an option for pick up from Ooty and they would drop you back too. They charge Rs 600 for each ride. The food is fabulous, although people who are adamant about eating extemely spicy food may not like it. One has have an open bent of mind to enjoy the food. Please do not expect chettinad style food here. I personally loved the food as it offers a wide spread ranging from Indian,Continental to Chinese. The Bunglow is an old British bunglow. The interiors do remind you of the pre-independance era. One can go trekking or could also have a cycle arranged by the resort. The night temperature drops down to 10 degrees even in summer. One can opt for fire wood to light the fire place in the rooms. They charge Rs 5000 per couple. It is inclusive of Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner. They also provide Beer on request. You will be charged for this extra drink and snacks. They have a dog called Mobby. He is friendly and a great entertainer. He is full of energy and is always wanting to play games with the visitors. He got emotional while we were leaving the place. Choose this resort and make a good choice.
