Dear Naveen, Sorry to know that you did not have a good stay with us. We have 2 generators besides UPS supported by Batteries and solar panels. However both the generators conked off on the same day you came. Machines at times do not give advance warning and suddenly stop working. We could not revive them and had to wait...

Located amidst nature and is quite a big property. Ideal for very large groups as the main house can accommodate more than 20 people easily. Food was good and so was the service. Would definitely recommend as a winter weekend gateway.

Nestled within a coffee estate, this homestay:s biggest usp is the hospitality and comfort provided by staff. Very prompt and courteous. Plus the rooms are clean and comfortable. All in all an absolute steal for the price paid. If you're looking for spectacular views, or something more rustic/adventurous then this is not the right place. Try something close to kemmanagundi....

We were a group of 16 people including kids and have taken the full resort with all meals. Rooms were of different sizes. Some beds were too small to accommodate people with 6 ft heights.

Dear Guest, Sorry to know that you did not have a good stay with us. Thank you for pointing out the short comings. It will be our endeavor to take corrective action at the earliest. However let me point out that all the beds at the homestay are of standard size with a length of 78 inches. Henry Aranha

Beautiful property, great food, and wonderful people. Have been there twice and would love to visit again. The rooms are well-maintained, and if you don't have plans to move around, the best thing is to chill out at the Hidden Valley.
