We had an amazing stay at the Hidden Valley. The house in located amidst a huge plantation consisting of coffee, lemon, pepper, cardamom and silver oak trees. An early morning walk through the estate guided by one of their helpers is a perfect start to your day. The rooms are cosy and comfortable, but dont expect them to be luxurious.... More

This resort is truly hidden and is in the heart of mother nature. The surroundings will definitely provide you with a soothing effect. An early morning walk through the coffee, lemon and orange trees, apart from several flowering plants and vegetation. If you're a bird lover, do spend some time to spot some nice aves. I spotted several common kingfishers... More

We went to this property because it was rated very well. However, I have to say our experience has not been great. The food and service was good. There was too much construction going on. The maintenance of the areas around the resort was not great. Other than the lake(which was not well maintained) near the guest house, there was... More
