5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

It was a wonderful experience. As i said in the title, you need to be there to experience what an experience !!!. We were 15 of us who explored the place which we enjoyed to the core. Harishettan has taken care of us very well - he is on the call anytime, anywhere. The food was so deliciuos and the staff has taken care of us very well. This was a truly amazing experience what we had. We love to visit once again. The trip was awesome... Hope to see you soon once again.

With love,
Trippers Adda

The property is very large spanning 300 acres. There are only a very few cottages spread across the property which offers a peaceful stay and a lot of privacy. The staffs took care of us well and the food was great. There is nothing much to see in Vagamon as such. So, mostly you will end up spending much of the time inside the property. There are lots of activities to do inside the estate itself. They take you around the estate in their jeep which was quite fun. We also did fishing in one of the lakes there and it was a very good experience. Apart from these, you can play volley ball, shuttle and some board games which they offer. You can also try to stay in one of the camping tents there.. We did not try it though.

pros: nature @ its best.. cottages.. games.. safari..

cons: Price was a bit on the higher side but that's ok considering the pros ;)..

We went there as a group of 8 friends. We stayed in the house of four gables. The staffs are really nice and helpful people. The food is awesome. We enjoyed the Jeep safari.
Only thing we are afraid of is about the Leaches. They will give salt water to pour on top of the leaches which is sucking blood. Other than that its a nice and thrilling experience.

A beautiful 300 acre property in the midst of tea plantations and rolling misty hills that make up the quaint little oasis called Vagamon. Vagamon heights is an ideal break from civilization, into the wonderful green wilderness. The cottages are all surrounded by a canopy of trees and other vegetation making it a wonderful retreat into the nature. We travelled as a family of four and stayed at Woodside which I believe is the best of their cottages, with 2 bedrooms, an absolutely picturesque balcony and large picture frame windows. Titus and his team of helpful, courteous boys took exceptional care of us, taking us along the jeep drive, boating and ensuring we are comfortable in every way. Though we travelled in the zenith of summer, it did rain an evening which was a treat in every way. Do check out the fabulous tree house for the daring to climb. I was in fact happy that there was no television in the cottage we stayed, Cz it would have killed the joy of being so close and intimate with nature. I wish they had provided books or boardgames. We also loved the super friendly horse Goebells and the dog Kaiser.

This is a great property, it's huge and lots to do - fishing, hiking, boating, walking, jeep safaris. Titus and his staff are exceptional and the rooms are nice and spacious.

I cannot think of a better place for larger groups.
