I visited this place with my adult son and wife in April 2015 and was lucky to be upgraded to the "Machan" - the tallest accomodation in this delightful accomodation right at the core area and at the foothill of the mountains. The choicest accommodation is obviously this 2 storied tree house with a viewing gallery complete with a wooden... More

We were 3 families staying in this property during Novemeber 2014. The best thing about this hotel is that its location is right next to the the Mudumalai buffer zone and mountains are facing the resort. We had taken a Machan room which has a special open room above it to view the scenery around the hotel. There are also... More

We just left Forest Hills this morning and wish we could go back there. We had a wonderful stay, made so by the lovely owner, Savita and her son Sameer. We were greeted at the gate on arrival as though we were old friends returning. Right away they were making suggestions for things for us to do to make the... More

Best place to stay for bachelors. Adventurous and relaxing stay. I had been here twice and will visit again with friends. Machaan is the best place to stay. You can stay on the open top at night and watch for the wildlife sneaking in. We saw sloth Bear and ofcourse deer/rabbits/wild boars. We missed elephants. Tree house is the second... More

Arrived at Forest Hill after travelling by train and car from Chennai, very tired and rather car sick. We were welcomed with open arms and smiles - we were the only 3 staying for the night. A safari was organised immediately with a very enthusiastic driver George who went out of his way to locate animals for us. Food great... More

Spent a beautiful weekend at Forest Hills in the first week of November. Infact, this was our second stay in this resort and was as perfect as our first visit. Initially, I thought I will try one of the other resorts which was very highly rated in the vicinity, but one look was enough to convince me to go straight... More

I've been in India for 10 years and this was my first trip to the Jungle. Traveling from Chennai to Maysore by train and being greeted by the taxi service arranged by the resort started our trip off right. Before I move forward I would like to add that the best time to travel through the reserve is between 5:30pm-6:30pm....We... More

Very peaceful. - Service is outstanding, making you feel at home. Owners who live on the property, spent time with us and shared a lot of jungle experiences and self-shot photographs. Our... More
