Green Nest Resort
Ranked #2 of 35 Kotagiri B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 31, 2012

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.

Room Tip: There are 4 rooms on top floor and 2 at the bottom, the bottom ones have tiles which tend to get qui...

We had been to this place during x-mas 2012 .. It was situated at a very nice place ,, tea plantation around .. very scenic and remote to town area .. excellent view from rooms.
good food ..
felt a bit low on value for money aspect .. you need to pay for heater .. I felt they can provide heater as a facility in such weather ...
never the less had a good time in resort ...
the staff are friendly and co-operative
Areas of improvement :
can keep some sign boards for the directions.
can arrange a bonfire in season (now it is a paid one, so it is delicate to go to the fire place when some one else has ordered for it and paid for the same)
can add couple of more items for kids to play like a slide, see-saw ..

Room Tip: we stayed in Phoenix it was good ..

We stayed in this resort in Dec 2012, we enjoyed our every hour in the resort, location, view from room, food, hospitality were very good.

We also enjoyed the visit to the Dam, falls and near by places, and the guide Pusparaj was really helpful.

Its little tough to find the resort, we used the google maps, gps and located with out any problem first time, got lost second time with out gps..so getting used with too many curves is a real challenge.

Areas to improve...

- Wifi in rooms
- Sound proofing room main door

Room Tip: Super deluxe is even better, choose rooms in first floor for even better view.

We stayed in Green Nest Resort 6 months before during early June 2012. It is a very good location to spend time alone with your loved one. Had good privacy and the persons in the resort are friendly & approachable. Though the food service is delayed, they had reason for it as they have to prepare based on the number of persons staying in the cottage. In addition, the taste is very good too. The cooks are also friendly & caring.
The cottage is well located with good views on all the sides. The rooms are named with different birds and each room is unique. I got a room with the window facing a small hill & had a very good view.
I should say about our short climb in the hill behind the cottage, from where we get a good view of valley. I think it is Raj (if I am not wrong) who took us up the hill. He is quite friendly & informative too.
Even Ram, the Director / Owner of this cottage is friendly & customer oriented; Helped to get a reliable cab driver who took us around kotagiri hills for a reasonable price. Felt safe & comfortable in a remort area, just because of the people taking care of the resort.
In total, I have a fully satisfied experience in this resort. Will strongly recommend for anyone who wish to spend time in an environment free from pollution.

Room Tip: Every room is unique; I stayed in the room direct from the entrance.

I just chanced upon Green Nest during one of my trips in the Hills. I was immediately struck by its location nestled in a saddle between two hill sides, with fantastic views on both sides. It provides opportunities for walks and treks in the nearby tea gardens or if you are more adventurous, up to the hill tops. The houses themselves are very tastefully done up, with each room having a balcony with a panoramic vistas. The staff is ever helpfull and also caters for meals to order and a la carte. I would definitely recommend the Green Nest for anyone looking for a get away from their busy work lives and the hum drum of the cities.

Room Tip: You require some directions to get there as it is at some distance from the main road. Make enquirie...

It was a really nice experience. Absolutely enjoyed the hospitality. Staffs are really really good mannered and helpful. Resort is really in serene place and anybody want to take time off from fast moving life can take a break there. Thanks to friends who planned this trip and it was definitely a trip to remember.
Food is a bit let-down as they don't have a cook having mutlicuisine experience but breakfast was better.Barbeque was awesome.
