We really enjoyed our stay at the Tryst homestay and even extended it by an extra night instead of a planned night in Ooty. We were looking for somewhere to relax in the midst of nature and that is exactly what we got. We loved our Egyptian themed room, had some great walks in the tea gardens (we even encountered cows amongst the tea!) and were impressed with the food and hospitality. We had a couple of day trips organised for us by the Tryst owner – 1 to Ooty and 1 around Coonoor and thoroughly enjoyed both. They were both with a car for the day (Ambassador) and a very knowledgeable driver who gave us a good tour of both towns. The eccentric owner, Dr Rao, shared some entertaining stories and views with us over pre-dinner drinks and 4-course dinners and we found we were laughing for most of our stay!
The only downside was Dr Rao telling us our holiday plans were flawed which made us doubt what we’d booked for the rest of our holiday and we even tried to change some of them based on his recommendations – we are glad we didn’t succeed, as the Jungle Lodges safari in BR Hills wildlife park that we went to afterwards was another highlight of our holiday!More
