“Best stay ever!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

I am a frequent traveler. have visited quite a few places. this experience will be kept in my top 10 list of best resorts and hotels.
the food was amazing, and the tree top candle light dinner, just blew me away. just amazing...
all that for an amazing rate. just toooo goood.
already recommended all my friends. i would recommend anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing stay with hill views, pleasant climate and mouth watering food. kudoos to the malayali chef who was with us for the tree top candle light dinner. not only did he cook food but also gave us a good idea of what he is making, which made the food even tastier.

The only con i found - is the entrance to the hotel. its too narrow and there is only one board. i asked about it to the staff and they said the way is Forest property and the boards hurt animals.

Either ways its highly recommended!

Room Tip: Go for the suites with jacuzzi, rooms are much bigger and better.

Thank you for being with us. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your

It is important for our people to connect with the guests and what Mr

This resort has a fantastic location on the slopes of the Nilgiris in an old spice plantation. It consists of bungalows, each containing two flats, scattered on the slope and connected with paths. So it's very quiet and you may have to walk some distance to get to the restaurant, but the path takes you through clove and nutmeg trees, cardamom bushes and pepper creepers, so to me that's pretty fantastic. The flats are big and very nice. Outside our window we spotted a giant squirrel. Didn't check the telly or the internet if any. The food was really good and the service really friendly. Now, there are some hairpin turns on the road above, and you honk going into one of those, so that's a part of being there. Do check out the treks and the treetop dining hut.

With my style of keeping my reviews short......

Pros -

1) Amazingly maintained resort
2) Helpful staff
3) Beautiful views
4) Tree top dining - Absolute must as its more than money's worth
5) I can go on and on

Cons -
1) The food menu was literally the same for the 2 days we stayed. But, I was educated as to why it's like that.... The reason is that the resort uses its own spices and vegetables got from its plantation to provide the authentic south indian taste.. They want to preserve the individuality in this matter and I think the customers visiting should respect that.
2) None else

Special mention -

1) Ms. Preerna from Reservations desk for arranging everything for our stay
2) The executive chef of the resort who's name I am forgetting for the amazing food he cokked for me and wife during our tree top dining time.
3) The front desk people who sent a person to give me back my hard disk and my wife diamond nose ring which we had forgotten in our room when we checked out.

Conclusion -

1) If you wish to forget all the world's worries and relax at peace at a place which will give your money's worth , this is the place..... Wish I could go here every month :-(

Room Tip: If you can splurge, go for Jacuzzi room, the extra money is worth spending!!!

We stayed at this resort during April 2013 on the last leg of our South India tour. We travelled from Ooty to Coonoor on the infamous train and were picked up on time by the hotel cab. Be prepared for a 45-60 min journey from the station to this resort because, well, its in the middle of a jungle..Literally! Also the road that takes us from the highway to the resort was in the worst condition it could be. The check-in wasn't a problem but we were given a cottage which was as far away as one could be from the reception(and the pool). The cottage size was decent and the bathroom was bigger than usual. Cottages are made in a pair so it was perfect for our family. The infinity pool turned out to be a unique experience not because of the pool but because of the monkeys roaming around (wild but not dangerous). However you should note that there was no attendant around the pool area. We were supposed to go on a spice plantation trip but it got cancelled because it rained :( The lunch was under a large wooden canopy , open on 3 sides into the jungle so that was pretty unique too. The food was good and the staff friendly and courteous. They had a tambola game in the evening by the pool which was fun. Also we were served complimentary chaat which was pretty sweet of the resort. All in all it was a completely new and unique experience and should be completely worth your money(especially if you have young kids around and/or are in a group ).

Room Tip: Try to get a cottage near the reception unless you want to lose some kilos !

Holidaying at Kurumba village will provide you the much needed peace of mind. Amidst nature and situated at the foothills of Nilgiris, the resort offers scenic views of the mountain, a well maintained swimming pool, rooms with modern ambience and everything else for a comfortable stay. The buffet spread is good for all meals of the day. The resort is quite big in terms of real estate and therefore you gotta walk quite a bit to the dining area or to your cottage. If you have someone elderly accompanying you, feel free to ask them to serve the food in your room. The staff are extremely polite and always keen to oblige to your needs. Just remember, the resort does not have a liquor license, so BYOB!

Highly recommend this place for a stay that will rejuvenate you; rest assured!

After a busy week of family functions, we had a perfect relaxing 2 nights in one of the jacuzzi suites. The staff were very friendly and efficient (they always called my 6 year old daughter by name - which she loved). The scenery was magnificent, especially from the pool which due to the off-season was deserted.
The food provided was buffet style for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The choice was usually good with the staff willing to make items not on display. The only minor gripe I have is that the start time for dinner was 8:30pm and my 6 & 2 year old girls were too tired and cranky to eat properly by then.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
