We drove down from Bangalore. The last few kilometers have to go by their jeep as no car can navigate the road through a small but rocky creek. The jeep journey is very interesting as you can see deer on either side, plus monkeys and bison. Rooms are good and well done with painted porcelain on the walls, posters from... More

The moment you sit in their 4x4 jeep and go through the last 2 kms you will realise the adventure. We stayed here for 1 night and are very happy with our stay. Its a small 7 room (including the tree house) setup with personalised service. The rooms are very good and have excellent view all around. The 100 years... More

We decided to go to Northern Hays fully understanding that this was different from the typical vacation and it exceeded our expectations. The drive from Coimbatore to Masinagudi was picturesque and the as we entered the off track road to the property we saw a group of Sambhar deer on one side and a Bison family on the other !!....

Located amidst the coffee plantation adjacent to a reserved forest, the experience begins when you approach the property via off-road route. The place, quietness, greenery and natural sounds of the woods take your mind away. We were given a choice between Sultana and tree-house. We were totally in for the tree-house. But upon seeing it, we changed our mind and... More

You need a 4*4 vehicle with good ground clearance to get right into the property. Else the resort folks arranges for one for the last 1.5 km of the journey. The resort lies tucked in the midst of a coffee plantation adjoining the Madumalai range, so there's every chance that you get to see the wildlife inside the resort. Deers,... More

The place in midst of huge coffee plantation which makes the place very scenic and gives a feel on "into the woods". The place is clean and the ambiance is serene. You get a feel of disconnected from urban life and connected to wild life. But the stay is overpriced. Cannot be included as budget hotel for stay .

THE GOOD - We had booked 3 rooms at The Wilds At Northern Hay, for two nights. The property is situated within a coffee plantation, which in turn is situated within the Mudumalai Forest area. The location basically being within the forest is great, as you are surrounded by greenery. This is a colonial style building with 6 rooms and... More

This place is just perfect for those seeking a stay in the middle of the Indian Jungle. As other reviewers mention here, it is located at the end of an extremely bumpy dirt track off the tarmacced road which ends at nearby Singara. It is in the heart of jungle, and you drift off to sleep at night amidst a... More
