We were looking for getaway to the Nilgiris and were not very keen on the usual tourist places in ooty, so went further into the hills and valleys.
And what an experience it turned out to be!!! The farmstay is near Avalanche dam around 22kms from ooty . It was a bit difficult to find the place but we had the detailed roadmap sent by the hotel after reservation. The last 3-4 kms of road was really different. From the Parking place to the resort ( 2kms of Forest road) you have to go on 4X4 army truck provided by the resort.But once you reach Destiny , you realize that its worth the pain. The landscape is just amazing with a valley and lakes. The farm has around 10-11 horses, cattle, spa, BBQ , fishing pond, vegetable and flowers plantations etc.
There are lot of activities included like Trekking , horse riding, fishing , Bon fire, musical night etc which you will find very enjoyable.
The restaurant is a decent one serving Indian, Chinese and continental . They don t serve drinks. Now the rooms, all the rooms have same view , have a viewing deck. The standard rooms didn t have heaters or fireplaces. The place is located in a valley and it gets windy and chilly quite often. We got one room heater which was chargeable . The rooms are decent but still can be improved, at least we found a bucket in the toilet which was not looking very clean. Overall rooms and service can be improved but the location and the overall farm experience makes up for it.
