Excellent place to be to have a perfect weekend. Cost was good compared to the cottages around it. Peaceful and nice and caring guys who worked and made our friends outing day enjoyable. The rooms were awesome and maintained very nice.
I will recommend this place for anyone who wish some calm and quite place to enjoy a weekend out of your busy weekly schedules.

Room Tip: The room next to Genset will have a very good view during the sunset. I enjoyed that on November.

I went with my family of totally 6 adults and 2 kids last week. It was a good sesaon, with rains and mist everywhere. We reached cbe by train from chennai and form there we took a cab to Dense. Initially we were very worried about how the accomodation is going to be, but when we reached the resort, we were surprised. They had all amenities that were needed. LCD TV with dish facility, fridge in every room loaded with cool drinks, split A/C, clean restrooms, nice sitting area outside the room to top it all, they give you the wonderful view of the hills. Since we had a kid of 7 months old, we needed hot water regularly, for which they had an electric kettle, which was very helpful. The resort also has a swimming pool, which can be used during summer. Food is made to order, they do not have any menu card. They are experts in south Indian food. Security wise its very safe. 24 hours power back up is available. If you request for liquor, they can arrange for that. Kids play area is also good, but during rainy season its not possible as it gets muddy. It was really a fantastic experience. Some time out from city life, but still you have your basic electronics so that you do not get bored...Its really good work by those guys...

Room Tip: The last room with one double cot adjacent to the swimming pool, is really good as you have a full view of the resort and you can dive from the room to the pool. The lights inside are dim and nice.

We stayed at The Dense for 2 nights. I must say, this place is simply superb. There are 3 cottages in all and they are very neat, tidy and well maintained. Complete with LCD, A/c and clean toilets, this made our holiday a tour a very relaxed one. A special mention about their food. It is drool-worthy. Just how can they make such amazing biryani and snacks is beyond me. Do try their south Indian meals. It is totally worth the money spent there. I'm looking forward to my second visit soon.

A few suggestions:
-Wind shades on all sides in the veranda will make it easier for people to sit there because now it is too windy and makes it difficult to enjoy an evening outdoor.
-An additional side table in the room would be nice.
-Main doors are transparent and doesn't give enough privacy.

Good small resort with three cottages located in sethumadai ( 25 kms away from pollachi) . Very close to Anamalai Tiger reserve ( walk able distance to Anamalai forest check post) , Topslip and Parambikkulam. Aliyar dam is about 35 km from here.

Good clean cottages ( 2 bed with attached toilet ) with an LCD tv & DTH connection, small fridge , 24 hrs hot water and generator back up.

We enjoyed the stay there but the food charges, I felt little high for the varieties they have .

Room Tip: All the three cottages have good mountain view and surroundings are calm and quiet . One of the resort which is very close to Tiger reserve. 2500 was the charge per cottage/night.
