Our visit was too short for a place like this. We stayed in the Machaan, on the border of the forest. This room is made on a watch tower and from the top you have a great view of the forest and mountain at the back. We were a big group and had the tree houses as well to ourselves.... More

The resort has in past been an access point to wild animals like elephants , leopards, deers, langurs straying into its premises ,sometimes creating menace for the occupants. But of late keeping in mind security of... More

We had a short stay in Forest Hills recently. We had put up in the machan at the extreme end of the property. The machan had a lovely roof top, just perfect for viewing wildlife that appear on to the clearing in front. The machan has an old look that we felt merged perfectly with the surrounding. It is a...

We only stayed one night, but it was a magic experience. The room was most acceptable, large, clean, tidy. The food was plentiful and very tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful. No alcohol, but that was anticipated. We had a marvelous evening after dusk watching the wildlife, including a very large elephant, pass below from the Treehouse. NB: you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Forest Hills Farm & Guesthouse is a family run rustic theme resort tucked in a secluded part of the Nilgiris in south India. With Mudumalai Tiger Reserve and Bandipur Tiger Reserve a hop away, this region offers opportunities to explore the un-spoilt forests and visit the resident wildlife. Time takes a break here in the deep reaches of nature. Accommodation includes double-occupancy rooms, a family cottage, deluxe rooms, bamboo huts, two tree houses and a Machaan, all non-a/c. The rooms are cozily furnished with modern conveniences. The cuisine is delightfully tasty homemade food. It is a charming mix of old-fashioned hospitality and contemporary amenities typical of colonial bungalows. The 'Machaan' or Watchtower, built on stilts at the edge of the property, has Wild Dogs, Asiatic Elephants, Leopards, Gaur, Sloth Bear as visitors. Set in a breathtakingly beautiful valley with the wooded mountains forming a majestic backdrop, the dawn and dusk here is adorned with over a hundred species of birds. Herds of spotted deer are commonly seen grazing in and around the place. True to its name, Forest Hills gives you a combined experience of both the forest and the Nilgiris (blue mountains). Step out of the city and immerse in the sounds and visuals offered by nature. ... more   less
