Being an avid photographer, I've been to Masinagudi way too many times and stayed at every place that I can think of. Stumbled on this resort after a friend suggested this place. After that first experience, I've never thought of staying at any other place since then in that belt. A true Jungle experience which is right at the foothills of Nilgiri hills. The view from the Machaan is simply breath taking. Loads of wildlife around the resort itself.. The staff is extremely courteous and so are the owners. Food is something to look forward to that that place. 5/5

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).
