Their tagline says ‘In the lap of nature’ but I feel that a more appropriate one would be ‘In the lap of heaven’! That’s right; Kurumba Village Resort (KVR) is truly a heaven on earth.
My wife and I spent 4 days at KVR during our honeymoon and it would only be fitting to say it was the best 4 days of our lives. The trip to KVR from Ooty took us around 1.5 hours. The roads weren’t great to brag about but as soon as you reach KVR, there will be nothing in you minds but awe. Set in the midst of a spice jungle, KVR welcomes their guests in their spacious lounge cum reception. Their staff is one of the friendliest ones I’ve come across.
The Room: Once we had officially checked in, we were lead to our lovely room. The walk to the room indeed is worth mentioning, with all the spice trees surrounding you. As you walk down the long fight of steps, the sight of a really blue swimming pool excites you. My wife was overjoyed at the fact that they had a swimming pool in the middle of a jungle! After a 3 minute walk, we finally reached our room. We had booked an independent suite (Room 115) and I’m sure we got the best room in KVR. Our suite was a two storey one, with a large bedroom upstairs and a spacious living room downstairs. Our bedroom had a king size bed and the view through the French window was simply amazing. Our bedroom overlooked the forest and we had a stream that flowed right next to our suite. The constant gushing of water relaxes you and makes you realize that you are indeed in the middle of a jungle, a heavenly jungle. For Rs. 5,500 a night (All inclusive including food, taxes etc etc), this was much more than we had wished for. In fact, my wife even suggested that we apply for a job in KVR, even if the work involved washing the dishes or picking up trash, just so that she could stay there forever.
The Weather: We visited KVR during the 2nd week of December and the weather was simply awesome! KVR, situated between Ooty and Coimbatore, has the best of both the weathers. It isn’t as cold as Ooty nor is it as hot as Coimbatore. The pleasant weather at KVR, at least during the time we were there, was the best that anyone could wish for.
The Food: The walk to the dining hall from our room took around 5 minutes. Our room was right at the bottom of the resort and climbing up the steps was a little tiring. Nevertheless, with spice trees shading the pathway, we enjoyed our walk everyday, and by the time we reach the dining hall, we had already built a good appetite. The dining room at KVR is build on stilts and the view of the mountains/valley from the dining hall is simply stunning. The food offered was really good too with a lot of varieties to choose from. The staff was even willing to make piping hot egg dosas for us in the morning. For lunch and dinner, you could choose from a variety of rice, noodles, vegetable dishes and 2 non-veg dishes (Chicken/Fish/Mutton on rotational basis). As I write this review, the thought of the food at KVR makes me hungry.
The Facilities/ Activities: The swimming pool is one of the best features at KVR. The pool was amazingly clean with clear blue water. The view from the pool, overlooking the mountains, was simply splendid. Even though it is not a temperature controlled swimming pool, the water wasn’t that cold to swim in. We took many a dip in the swimming pool in the warm afternoons.
KVR has a very good games room, with many games like carom, pictionary, pool table, table tennis etc. They also have a play room for children with toys, play houses etc. KVR also took us on a guided trek along the mountains. We weren’t really able to get very adventurous on this trek because my wife hadn’t brought her sneakers and she found it very difficult climbing rocks using her slippers.
One of the best things about our visit was that there weren’t many guests at the resort during the time we were there, and hence we found it more peaceful and relaxing with fewer people around. But the resort was totally booked from the 3rd week of December onwards, but that was the time we checked out.
How To Get There: KVR arranges pick ups and drops on very reasonable rates. We had requested to be picked up from King’s Cliff, Ooty and KVR arranged it for a reasonable fee of Rs.600. Our drop back to Bangalore from KVR cost us Rs.3,750, which I felt was cheaper than private taxis.
So in conclusion, I can confidently say that you would not be disappointed with KVR and if anyone of you is planning your honeymoon, this is one of the best places to go. Check out all the pictures I\'ve attached and see for yourself. Try and visit this place during the 2nd week of December if you like a more peaceful setting with fewer guests around.
By the way, my wife and I will be at KVR again this year in December, to celebrate our first wedding anniversary :-)
Best Experience: The weather was awesome during the time we stayed there. The view from the room and the beautiful stream that flowed right besides our suite were two of the best things I had experienced ever. The staff at Kurumba Village Resort are a commendable bunch, willing to go the extra mile to keep their guests happy.
Worst Experience: We didn\'t actually experience anything bad during our stay at KVR. We had a perfect honeymoon :-)
Here are a few things I'd like to get out of the way first. I traveled in the month of May 2014 with my family (wife and two kids - age 6 and 1) for a three nights stay at this resort. I flew from Chennai to Coimbatore (1 hour) and took a hotel booked taxi (one and half- two hours) to get to the resort. This place is best to visit during Summer or any other non-rainy season as the travel uphill and to the resort can be a bit tricky with pretty much no one following any road rules. I was told that January to May and Sept-Oct are good times to visit. In May it is hard to find any waterfalls or for that matter any water bodies which may not be the case in Sept-Oct The resort has 22 cottages out of which only two are Jacuzzi villas. I booked the Jacuzzi villa which comes with a hall, a very spacious bedroom, a big balcony that looks out at the mountains and thick forest vegetation and a spacious bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi Location of the property was good. Food - exceptional, you will not want to leave the resort just for the food. Its a lean menu, but spot on perfection. Game center and a play area for toddlers (snooker, foosball, table tennis). Greenery and all the clean air that surrounds you feels good. The resort showcases local talents from Coonoor or other nearby cities as a daily evening program. We got to witness karakattam by the limca book of records older Mr. Suresh Kumar, some light music and a magic show over the three nights we were at this resort. The events usually happen at 8pm and I thought this was just fabulous of the resort to do. The rooms are well maintained, clean. Room service is good, although some room for improvement here. Easy to travel to Ooty and Coonoor for sightseeing. Fully loaded with most of the HD channels I watch. Very courteous staff that bend over backwards to make you stay pleasant So here are the limitations. I wont say that these are negatives, but it goes with the place. The infrastructure for networks, Mobile etc is yet to catch on in this village. So please be aware that your Mobile phones, data cards will most likely not work. This is not the resort's fault, its just that its remote. They do have wireless at the lobby but works on and off. In my case it was a positive as I had no way to download my office emails. So my full focus was on my family. No internet facility within rooms If you opt for the Jacuzzi villa (I stayed in 117), it takes ages to fill-up cause it is very big, so better be prepared to wait for about couple of hours to get the tub filled. My kids loved the Jacuzzi, it has a console like any other jaccuzzi to control its settings etc. While you may have done your online booking and paid in advance, this place has no credit card facility as there isn't a stable network/connection into this village. So rest assured, please carry cash to settle your final bills and dues. I was not told about this when I booked or when I arrived at the resort. And I heard from the cab drivers later on that this is something that has happened to many other guests in the past as they were caught by surprise on the day of the check-out. Promoting this feature will surely not get them the traffic, so I am sure that is one reason they do not let the guests know in advance, even though they asked "did no one tell you about our payment process", I only came to know on the day of the check-out Restaurant: No round the clock room service. The food team works mostly for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are open for service an hour or two before a late breakfast (8. 30am onwards), lunch (1. 30pm onwards) and dinner (8. 30pm onwards). So you cannot just pick up the phone an order snacks as and when you like. The choice of snacks when available is also limited. The team was kind enough to do some fries and cheese sandwich for my kids but mostly its just local snacks Billing: The Hotel management system they use is primitive and not integrated with the online portal from which you booked your room(s). So please remember how much you paid, if there is any refund they have to give you etc. I was thrown all kinds of numbers at the time of check-out. Fortunately I was able to log into my mails from the front desk and show them what I have paid and how much I actually owed them. While some of the above limitations did take me by surprise and I could have very easily lost my cool with the front desk at any point in time; I decided to just take it easy and go with the flow of things. I 100% recommend you to visit this place, but I also suggest that you don't impose your city "on-demand" lifestyle here cause you are not in a city anymore. The positives outweigh the limitations Room Tip: If you are going with a family of four then suggest you take the Jacuzzi villa
Deciding to plan for Honeymoon at Kurumba was the one of the best decision I have taken so far. That was really a tremendous experience staying at Kurumba for 2 days and 2 nights. Locality of the resort and the suite in which we stayed was so relaxing and nature surrounded. Hospitality and the services offered by the staff was good, although the resort was in construction mode, that created certain problems in ordering services through telephone. One of the major specialty was the amazing food and the variety they offered. I should say they really offered the best taste with both veg and non veg cuisines. Chocolate shake with alternate strawberry shake, variety of chicken and the awesome veg delights worth every penny we spent there Another reason we opted for a Honeymoon Suite was Jacuzzi suite with all the possible amenities we should get. Again I should say the experience was wonderful as they provided as what we expected. Jacuzzi was just exact as it was shown to us by Make My Trip representative. Every single picture shown by the website and Make My Trip portal was true for this suite My advice to travelers would be - plan a family weekend (Member should be more than 4) for maximum 2 days or 3 in the lap of nature if you are really looking for a change after a long working schedule. Also, I would like to advice not to plan individually until you are not a damn nature lover and can spend 2 to 3 days alone Reading novel and talking to your own self in the forest The only point which I don't like about the place is the lightning of the place. It feels like after 7: 00 pm it's so dark there that you alone cannot take a walk even in the walking area of resort. Resort Manager and authorities should do something to improve the lightning of the arena. The sport room was not walloped and the not maintained with not even a single person to attend us. Do something for that also. Rest everything was good Thank you Make My Trip for such a wonderful experience. Definitely, I will decide my next vacation with a complete package from Make My Trip only.
We stayed at Kurumba Village Resort for 2 nights in the 1st week of June 09. We had gone with our 1.6 years old baby.
Destination: The resort is located midway between Ooty towards Mettupalayam. It takes around 1.30 hrs to reach the resort from ooty. The entire journey from Ooty is via the Ghats and the drivers are very rough, so better instruct your driver to be safe from other vehicles. The right turn to the resort is a blink n u miss the turn.
Location: The Resort is located amidst the sloped of the Mountains in a forested area. A beautiful waterfall flows right through the resort and that gives you a great relaxation feeling. The temperature was bearable and there is no Ac in the room. You have to go there to believe that such a living is possible!.
Reception: The staff is extremely courteous and after check-in will show you to your room, explaining about the various facilities of the hotel along with the tree species and flora/fauna within the resorts which is really interesting. We were given Sweet Lassi in an earthern bowl, but the curd was sour, so I didn\'t particularly like it. Check-in was swift and took about 5-10 mins flat.
Room: The cottages are far from each other, giving each its share of privacy. We were given room no 109 which is located way down near the waterfall and since the cottages are built on a slope, the walk from our room to the Dining hall was too much and with an infant, it was simply too tiring. If you are travelling with an infant or elder persons, then pre-book rooms very close to the dining hall or skip this resort, because otherwise it will completely spoil your relaxing tour because half of the time you are walking up and down.
The room shown in website looked much more beautiful than in reality. It was also much smaller than what I expected (They say its 500sqft for Cottage, but mine looked very small). The bathroom was ok, not very luxurious. The balcony was good, but you need to watch out if you are with an infant because the front and the sides of the balcony is fenced using x-shaped wood logs and that creates extra spaces between the barriers. So an unattended toddle might squeeze in between that and fall down the room. Another problem in the room is the insects which are way too many. But I can understand that the resort is located in a forested area and they would be there. In fact, the tea/coffee machine in the room looked very dirty with rust and there were around 6-7 ants inside it. The next day morning, I saw around 100\'s of ants in the bathroom, 2 spiders, and 1 grasshopper. The balcony also had its share of big and small ants and some unique type of insects. (But as I mentioned this is their habitat and they are bound to be there, so if you hate these creepy-crawly creatures then don\'t visit this resort because there is no way you would escape them). My lil son enjoyed looking at the insects very much and he actually learnt to say \'grasshopper\' \'ant\' and \'spider\' here)
Food: Food was very boring. There were many varieties in the food, but the taste was ok and the menu was generally repeated daily. There was 1 soup, 3-4 type of vegetables, 2-3 type of rice, dal, and some wafers, etc along with rotis for lunch and dinner. The breakfast consisted of idlis, dosas, vadas, canned juice, some other breakfast like upma, etc.
In the evening between 4-6pm, there was evening snacks including tea/coffee/milk as well as bhajias (aloo, onion, paneer, etc). But it was always same on all days. This evening snacks was served near the swimming pool and the location was awesome. No bar in room, if you want beer ask at dining hall.
Service: There is no room service except milk, etc for kids. The manager straight away told us while check-in that we would have to come for all food at the dining hall and nothing would be served in the room except milk and other minor supplies. There is no A-La Carte available here.
Activities: There is a mini library near the reception which has some good english novels. There is a club house which has carrom, table tennis (the ball was broken and they didn\'t have another ball), and pool.
The swimming pool is excellent and it\'s very clean. The pool is located in such a way that you feel that its connected to the valley in the mountains and from one end it would look like a waterfall itself. There is a small kiddies pool as well. The main pool dept must be 4-5 ft, so you can chill out.
On the 1st night, we got a call from the reception to join a game of Housie at 7.30pm. We reached sharp at 7.30pm and there were a couple of people there along with a DJ playing some music which was terrible and in 20 mins they repeated 1 song twice (barso re - from Guru). They didn;t have any collection, just 1 or 2 cds. We got bored after 30 mins since the game still hadn\'t started and we left for the restaurant. The game started at 8.30pm.
There is actually nothing to do in the resort after a couple of hours. No sightseeing around, etc. So if you are travelling with an infant or a small kid, then keep in mind that this would turn out to be pretty hectic rather than relaxing tour. That is what I learnt the hard way. I had to keep my toddler entertained myself, whereas in other resorts where we stayed like Taj Savoy, ooty, or Cicada, Bandipur, the toddler enjoyed very much because of activities.
Dining Hall: The dining hall is strategically located with excellent scenery and valley view. There are a couple of monkeys always loitering around which is fun. One thing I didn;t quite like was that they did not have baby chairs which I found in other resorts. This meant handling my toddler and having my meal together which was pretty hectic. Since my toddler is very active, I had no option. In Cicada, Bandipur they had Fisher Price High chairs for baby which was extremely comfortable.
Best Experience: - Excellent view from our room with the sound and view of waterfall gushing along. - Great service, the staff is very courteous and friendly and helpful. - Nice swimming pool and campfire area with evening snacks, including bhajjias
Worst Experience: - The walk from our room to dining hall was pretty strenuous as our room was located way down the slope and we had to take a couple of breaks to catch our breath. And with the baby in one hand it became even more tiring.
- Too many insects in the room. 100\'s of them in the bathroom, the next day morning (they were not there the 1st day because the housekeeping boys cleaned the room before we checked in)
- No A/c. It was pretty hot in June 1st week.
- The room was small compared to what they claim in the website (I booked a cottage which they say is 500sqft, but it looked pretty small)
- The food was ok and repeated very often.
- No room service, except milk and mineral water.
- No bar in room
- On 2nd night, at around 3am, the lights went off and when I called the front desk, they guy said that entire Nilgiris\' electricity is down and when I requested to start the generators, they said that since evening the generator was powering the resort and now the generator is down. I requested them to please do something as I had an infant in the room and with no fan it was very hot and it was impossible to open the windows because that would have led to a swarm of insects inside the room. But they said that the lights would come only at 5am. After this my baby woke up and got very cranky and with only a candle to light the room, the next 10-15 mins were horrible. Suddenly the lights came on after 20 mins (much to our relief), but my baby didn;t sleep well the whole night and in turn we also had a bad night sleep. Since we had to catch a flight from Coimbatore-Mumbai the next day, it pretty much spoiled all our fun. So 10 mins of no electricity spelled doom for us. I still wonder how they were able to start the generator if it was down. So the moral of the story is to carry a small hand held portable battery operated travel fan, if you are with an infant.
Kurumba is a great and one of the best place to be there if you wish to live close to the nature . . PROS:. Location : best. Rooms : great. Hospitality : superb. Services and courtesy: fantastic. Relaxing environment. Luxury in the room was amazing . Swimming Pool: awesome and fantastic location. CONS:. No network coverage other than BSNL. Not so great food. A little costlier. Monkeys in the property. They don't serve liquor ( only beer) just for information. It should not matter It was a family trip and we stayed down near the waterfall. The view from the rooms and the restaurant is mesmerizing I am thankful to the hotel staff as they provide us a cottage just after we reached there in the morning at 8:00 in the morning to change and relax till we were transferred in the rooms. We stayed there for two nights and it was very relaxing, enjoying and refreshing in the lap of nature Waterfall, hill side view, valley view, forest and nature walk, walk to the waterfall, birds and butterflies greeting you for the day, what else is required to refresh one There are monkeys also in the property and one should take care of In the nutshell, this is a great place to be there and enjoy.
