HolidayIQ Traveller Varadharaj Raman from Bangalore shares, “Had booked bamboo banks on the way back from Coimbatore in Nov 2014 for one night with my wife and daughter. The resort has only a handful of rooms spread over a huge area. The place was very well maintained and offered a very homely feel. The location is a pleasant drive from Mudumalai reserve and Theppakadu elephant camp. The resort includes a well maintained swimming pool and lots of open space for kids to run around. They also had ATVs and bicycles to go around the resort. The complimentary horse ride was a big hit with my daughter. The breakfast had a good variety and was yummy. Overall it was such a great experience that I booked for my second visit in the next week and went again in Feb 2015. Worth a visit for 2 nights to have a relaxed holiday.”

Mr. Prabhu the property proprietor is an incredible host and a sweet individual to be with. The cleanliness of the ranch merits saying. It is a magnificent ranch with a house so imaginatively constructed and exceptionally very much kept up. We making the most of our jeep safari amid which Mr. Prabhu demonstrated to us the property and the woods fixes, an impeccable spot for winged creature viewing. Much the same as every other thing at Banyan tree, the sustenance was grinding away's best :-) nothing to browse menu card, obviously you are not at a lodging/eatery. The most flavorful veggie lover nourishment we have ever had, one couldn't request more. The stay at The Banyan Tree - Farm Stay and time went through with Mr. Prabhu had made our unique day much more extraordinary. Wish we can make it regularly and get the chance to realize some magnificent cooking from Mr. Prabhu alongside more touring, which this time got a bit ruined because of substantial downpours.

Sadly we got booking only for one day of the two days planned in Nubra. Surrounded by apricot and apple trees, this place will relax every part of your body and the taste of food made from their own organic farm still remains with me. Its a one time experience and its a must."

It's completely a huge farm with all amenities & a wonderful view of the lake. It's breathtaking! The staff were really helpful and very polite. There was Horse riding, fishing, bonfire, spa & you can also go to the lake end. The entire mountain side is theirs and its very big. We stayed in the Luxury room which had a huge balcony with an amazing view. The room has a fireplace and overall size is also big. I loved the entire stay and will recommend any one and everyone from couples to families to visit this place, especially during December (the right time to visit Ooty)," says HolidayIQ Traveller Arpit Schindhia.
