We traveled in a group of 4 couples and booked the entire cottage for ourselves. As we were staying for more than two days we decided to stay at Sultana as well as Mango tree. Trust me this choice of ours make our trip more rejuvenating. Both the properties are good, Sultana have its own advantage of being a large... More

Thanks to Mr. Murugan ( The Chef) who took great care of us. It has beautiful tea and coffee plantation all round the place. Floriculture and Herbal plantations are also... More

Throughout our 2 night stay at Devashola the pendulum of this review swung from poor to good and back again. This COULD be a real gem of a place with just a little more consideration and attention to detail. Cons first, so I can finish with the good: Arriving late we were told that we would be served dinner in... More

The shear location of this place makes it interesting because the travel either from Ooty or Coonoor is very picturesque with lots of tea gardens & amazing views.... We stayed in Bison valley row cottage, & the property is just ok... The room size is very small with just two single beds inside. The quality of the room can also... More

It was just awesome. Snuggled in breath-taking greenery,this place gives everything that a nature lover would expect. Mesmerizing morning views would leave you just awe-struck!! I wonder how would it feel to be at this place during the rains.

We had been to Mango Tree, Devashola 5 years ago. The serenity of the property remains as is, which is good. The quality of food had come down from what we had then. Otherwise, if you are looking for off beat, colonial style tea bungalows, I would recommend this place - Lakshminarayanan

Tempting to visit once again. Pros: Location it is like heaven. Food quality. Service. Cons: 1 hr from coonoor town. But I do not want to consider this as cons. Since I already know and well prepared about this distant location.
