“Delightful Destiny!”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

A green emerald set between two sapphires - that's the beautiful setting Destiny Farmstay enjoys. A couple of hours drive away from Ooty, a jaunty ride on a bumpy track in an army vehicle and suddenly you're there! Destiny is nestled up on a hill, bordered by the Avalanche Reservoir on one side and Emerald lake on the other. A relaxing weekend spent at Destiny, we eagerly took in all it had to offer - a trek up in the hills, fishing, ziplining into the valley, a peep into the dairy and horse stables, horse riding, meandering in the vegetable patches that dot the slopes and later in the evening, a delicious barbeque and dancing to some cool music. A comfortable and spacious room gave us a charming view of the valley and the Avalanche reservoir in the distance. The food was delicious with a nice spread at the breakfast buffet table, lunch and dinner being a la carte. The service always came with a smile and the outdoor activities team was very encouraging and supportive especially for the ziplining adventure which was a first for me.
The perfect place to let your hair down, put your feet up and switch off those nagging cellphones!

Me and my gals gang went on this super holiday to OOTY lots of excitement from us to have a good time and lo and behold we were in for the best time of our lives. The green around was absolutely a sight for sore eyes. Food i must say was good coz once u get to destiny u have no choice but to eat there and that lived upto expectations..Plenty of adventure Activities to keep the kids occupied we did try the zip line and it sure was a mind boggling experience. Staff courteous and helpful.. Being a spread out property we should give them time to serve you if u order room service..Rooms were very spacious and had a lovely view. Absolutely scenic with options for horse riding. Interesting that they are also into organic farming and dairy farming..
Interesting and worth it. Looking forward to going there with my family.. A luxurious farmstay I must add. Looking forward to my next visit..

To sum it up in one word, the place like heaven , but the property is managed very badly with a pathetic service staff. I had visited this place during the second week of April along with some of my friends...the place is very scenic ..

We went as a group to Destiny Farms during the first week of April.

LOCATION : Fantastic location. Breathtakingly beautiful. The bumpy ride was adventurous which the kids loved. Pregnant ladies and people with back problems, please watch out.

ROOMS : Superb again! Spacious, nice and neat.

RECREATION :
- Activities: Very different and very good. The farm , trek, barbeque, wall climbing , zipline etc are all very nice. The guide for the trek, zipline and wall climbing is excellent and knows how to handle people. Informative, encouraging and patient. Good choice
- Library : Pretty decent with books on varied subjects

SERVICE : This is PATHETIC under all heads
- Restaurant : The team is incapable of handling even a decent sized crowd. Leave alone a packed weekend. Delayed service, wrong orders - all definitely not worth the price you pay !!!

- Front Desk and Billing : Having read earlier reviews we decided to do the billing the previous evening as we were to set out early after breakfast. Although there was no one else, it took more than 1 1/2 hours to settle the bill, this is inspite of it being known that we would be checking out the next day morning. The next day we saw a couple of other families waiting for quite soemtime to get the billing done. For the premium one pays, one would expect much better service !

Management : One can never get a straight answer from the Manager leaving one thinking that one was better off rather than ask the question. Appears as if he's informative but at the end of a chat you would realize that you know the same as at the start.

Basically a beautiful property with terrible service.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower deck have a very good view

If you love Ooty and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of boring crowded"0oty town" this is the best resort any hill station in south India can offer but, @ a price..and no booze...so carry your own booze!! good food and gr8 ambiance and the farm experience?... well...is best left for the kids.

It was a very nice experience to be in the mountains, it is a bit artificial but the kids loved it, the climate is great and you are away from all the noises. The food is good, a bit expensive.

Room Tip: Ask for the deluxe rooms, they are nicer then the luxury rooms, who are more expensive.

We travelled to destiny farm end march , it was a perfect stay in all terms - room, food, activity and to top it all hospitality. My son did horse riding, fed cows , fishing , farming and also saw a kiddies movie in the afternoon. I challenged my fear of heights by doing zipline !

Food was eclectic and every bite was delicious, cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: all rooms have similar view, luxury room comes with fireplace.
