My wife and I spent a couple of days here in early July. Everything about the trip was good. The property is far from any town and ambient noise. Mostly it is just the people at the bungalow that are around. It is set right in the midst of tea gardens and a patch of shola is not too far... More

We wanted a vacation that was peaceful in a serene place. The palaniappa estate was recommended by a friend and it fit the bill perfectly. We (Self, wife and kid) stayed at the Sultana bungalow since Mango Tree was not available. The view from Sultana was breathtaking with the cloud movement changing the view of the hills every few hours.... More

Nice view, we stayed at Palaniappa Bungalow, two families of us who travelled together, a wonderful and an old building, you cannot expect royalty but definitely all the required basic amenities were met, hardly signals would be caught on your mobile phones. Very good food prepared by the caretakers, Guided trek, the jeep travel inside the estate was really a... More

Enjoy Nilgiris at Mango Tree Bungalow - amazing experience. Far away form modern civilization. Perfect place to restructure yourself. Mobile connectivity is very poor - so nobody will be able to disturb you. Hospitality of the caretaker is excellent. The Caretaker only prepares fresh -good foods/meals. Only problem is - they will serve you South Indian Veg Foods only..

The food served here is excellent, ONLY VEG Food is served here. Ensure that you try out the mint chutney... More

My husband and i were craving for a weekend getaway. We reserached a lot and tumbled upon Devashola Estates by chance and as luck would have it, it had the best reviews out of all the homestay's we had been looking at. The highlight of this place is that it provides you with that tranquility that we all so badly... More

A balcony with a white wooden railing overlooking the valley; slanting orange sun rays shimmering over your tea, and myriad birds, singing. Hidden in the north-western corner of Tamil Nadu, Devashola Estate is a perfect retreat. There aren't any bellhops to fuss over you, no packages to sign up for, no choices to make. The estate is a sprawling 650... More

We spent 3 weeks travelling in Southern India, and our 4 nights at Devshola, up in the Nilgiri mountains, were the highlight. Taking the the Nilgiri Express at dawn from Coimbatore up to Coonoor, then a tuk tuk ride through the hills and plantations to Devshola, was life-affirmingly awesome. Devshola was one of the most tranquil and spectacular places we've... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Looking for a quieter place, must say you will be pleasantly surprised to wake up to the tune of softly chirping and singing birds. Wondering what kind of birds were outside, if you open the door to step out and stand in amazement you get a mind blowing view. You will be searching for your camera to take the pictures of the valley view. We do have adventure activities like rock climbing, rappelling, high rope courses where you will be thrilled doing such activities. We take you for good trek and Jeep safari nearly for 2 hours where you will be seeing bison and deer and lot of birds. ... more   less
