It was an impromptu decision, we booked at the last minute and decided to go to Kotagiri rather than Ooty, as I had been to Ooty before and wanted to try out something different.
The weather enroute was sublime, and the drive from Mangalore to Kotagiri via madikere was an experience.
We had told Mr. Ram Kumar (Owner of Green Nest) that we would reach Green Nest by Noon,and since we had halted at Madikere were a bit late in arriving, and the ever gracious Mr. Ram kumar called us when we were on the way to inquire if we were coming for lunch. and the arrival time.
The property is situated in an interior wooded area a few kilometres before Kotagiri, a little difficult to find but once you enter the road leading to the property remember (GUNDADA GOVERNMENT SCHOOL) and you should not go wrong.
Its a beautiful property, well maintained and tastefully done with all amenities. I was travelling with my wife & 2 small Children. and had been assigned the ground floor flat ( pelican), It had a nice view , and was located next to the kitchen and had a small yard. It was an excellent room and my little girl loved it the minute she stepped in to the room.
we were provided with an heater, by Mr. Ram Kumar, as the weather was becoming a little damp.
Bonfire and barbecue facilities are available and there is a yard in front with a hammock & swings to laze around,
The property is maintained very well by Mr. RamKumar & his younger brother Arun Kumar,
The food is good though a little on the spicy side, but it actually suited my mangalorean taste.
I would say its an excellent place for the honeymooners, privacy,isolation & beautiful surrounding.
It was the highlight of our trip and the fact that my little girl loved every minute of it & cant stop speaking about it even now.
