My wife and I wanted to getaway from all the noise and clutter in Bangalore and after one quick search on Tripadvior we zeroed in on Tea Nest in Coonoor. This quaint place is located smack in the middle of tea estates and is very close to all of the major tourist attractions in Coonoor (if they are on your agenda).
We had pre-booked the room (Chamomile) and the entire process was hassle free. Barring the first call to check availability everything else was done over email. Shaalini from Kurumba Village (they run Tea Nest as well) was extremely responsive to all of our queries.
From the welcome drink and right up to preparing the bill when we checked out we were pampered through and through. The facility and the room was well maintained and clean and there was always someone on hand to tend to any request. The facility does not feature a restaurant in the traditional sense but you could order from the room service menu and be assured of fresh and tasty food. You will however need to intimate them about dinner and lunch preference in advance so that the food can be prepared and served at a time of your choosing. Do try out the Tea menu, it is really refreshing. The dessert is phenomenal.
I would really like to recognise the all the people involved in running the facility, especially Vishwanathan. Vishwanathan is perhaps the most helpful person I have come across in a long time. He ensures that all your needs are met and also has interesting bits of information that will make your stay and travel a little more fun.
Its a great place for a quick getaway and also for families who want to spend some quality time.
