An erroneous transfer of Rs 3000/- done by my friend to " The Wilds northern Hay" resort was confirmed over the phone by Miss Ambareen and was promised to be refunded. But now they are going back on their words. The screen shot of the payment done is attached with this review. Rs 3000/- is not a big deal but... More

A rough and tumble ride through dense coffee plantations gets you there. The surrounding area is a place steeped in the British history of India, with an old power house and mountain top winch, a reminder of the days when workers were winched up to the tea plantations there. Northern hay is a small oasis in the middle of dense... More

Its a super place if you want visit as a family or group of friends. Right in the middle of the forest. The caretaker of the property was also excellent and very helpful. You do not get any network on your phones, which totally makes the experience worthwhile. At night you can hear all sorts of animal sounds which is... More

The place is situated in dense forest inside Masinagudi. We were family of 15 members had excellent time. We stayed for 2 days. The rooms are quite comfortable and you can hear jungle sound all night but that is a very different experience. You can see deers right in front of your rooms during early morning.There is a jungle safari... More

We were there and the wilds for celebrating my mothers birthday. The ride up to the resort is rough and all that the other reviews claim, but once you enter the resort , it's all forgotten. Almost as if you have stepped back in time. The walls and rooms are adorned with old hunting and coke memorabilia. You saw that... More

Went there with wife and 4yr old son. Drove down from Bangalore. It took us 5.5 hours to get there from Bangalore (6.5hrs from Bangalore airport). The manager Deepak kept calling us to ensure we don't have any problems. You cannot take your car all the way to the resort. They will pick you up from the Check Post at... More

The Wilds at Northern Hay is located at a brilliant location. It is about 7 kms from Masinagudi on Singara road. You need to park your car at Singara checkpost and you will be transported on a 4x4. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The property dates back to the British era and is quite rustic. Lot of antique... More

At night we could hear the wild elephant trumpet, then in the mornings; 5.30am; we... More
