This is a quite resort, tucked away from the main touristy area, enroute to Nilavur on the Yelagiri hills. It is a set of 15 odd independant cottages within a large compound, served by a common kitchen and recreation area. Each of the cottage has a small private lawn with provisions for bonfires. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and well maintained, though a bit small (even in the Royal suite version) in size.
The food is very homely and the service is excellent to say the least. The management and staff are extremely courteous and accomodating. There are bicycles you can rent out for a drive or just take a walk by the little rivulet which is in front of the resort. Indoor games like TT, Carrom, Chess etc are other pass times apart from a nature walk which you can opt for.
If there is something which could have been better, it is possibly the spacing between the cottages. A little more space would ensure a lot more privacy.
Overall - Great service and excellent value for money.
