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

We drove to Masinagudi in our Mahindra Xylo and Mr.Deepak suggested we park our car there and offered to send his Jeep to pick us up because the road... More

We didn't see any, but we saw a panther, bison, samba, spotted deer, Malabar squirrels, flying squirrels, wild boar and signs of porcupine and bears!! At night we could hear the wild elephant trumpet, then in the mornings; 5.30am; we... More

I actually want to rate this place 3.5, it's above average but I have to choose between 3 and 4 and I have to choose 3.

Perfect place for a family vacation. Loved the food and service. Great location. Perfect natural setting. Excellent barbeque dinner. Surprises/experiences : tiger pug marks outside the gates!, mock charge by herd of elephants, sightings of elephant, deer, boar, bison during safari. Hardship: Last 1.5km to property is hard. Not great for people with neck and back problems. Saving grace -... More

The Wilds at Northern Hay is a nice estate turned home stay nestled at the foot of the Nilgiris. Simple, homely place cozily located in the middle of nowhere. What we all (kids especially) liked most about the place was the 20 minute jeep ride from the main road. There's no such thing as a road there. So you park... More

Stayed here for one night. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible. The food was absolutely delicious! Informative walking tour around their coffee plantation. Loved the gazebo area and nighttime camp fire. Highly recommended!
