“A very good Getaway!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

I stayed a couple of nights last week as part of a group and generally we all had a great time. The place is around a 45 minute drive from Ooty and the road is quite poor for the last stretch. But that is understandable give the remote location but they definitely need to put Signboards( and increase the size of the tiny ones that they have already got :)) for directions as quite a few members of our party missed the turns at a few places.
However, the resort itself was very good and the location absolutely scenic. Both the food and service was outstanding and deserves appreciation. Do definitely try the deserts ( especially the wishbone brownie) as they were very good. The Spa deserves a special mention as it was very good and much better than most places I have been to.
Overall, a very good place and would definitely recommend other travelers to try this place if they are looking for a peaceful getaway.

If you want to spend your holiday in a non polluting greenary atmosphere this is the ultimate choice, Rooms are good and quality of the food is great, Value for money, Mobile network is the only issue, you get coverage only in few areas, you get free wifi

The place is located at a very scenic place with a small pond in front and valley surrounding. Rooms are good, spacious and neat. Food is great and the service is too good. Had a short trek at early morning which is worth. Only few mobile network is working and rest were working at very few places only. Free Wifi is avaible at lobby and not at rooms. Travelled in a group, we enjoyed the moments.

Room Tip: Travel from parking lot to resort thro their Pick up van is bit tiresome. Pregnant ladies and old ag...

After the chaos and madness of Bangalore - Destiny farms feels like Paradise on earth. Ooty like most hill stations is a sad place. Crowded , hot , smelly lakes .... not the picture perfect place of yester years.

However 30 Km away from Ooty the pristine charm of old is still visible at Destiny farms. Winding thru small roads you reach Avalanche, a place full of green lakes & meadows. Destiny farms is a beautiful place located on a hill slope adjacent to a lake. Lovely rooms , excellent service , lots of activities for kids ( including Horse Rides !!). For more details check this link.

We loved our stay and strongly recommend the place

Room Tip: Choose the bigger rooms with Fire Place

I have been here couple of times but this is my 1st review about this place. last weekend i was in this place with a group of friends with families. climate was very windy and in the night it was freezing may be this is not the right time to go. but this is a perfect getaway for a weekend if you want to stay away from pollution. all the staffs were very friendly and very helpful and willing to serve to always without hesitation. they never say no to any of our request. its deep in forest so u have to park your cars few kms from the resort then the resort van to pick u up to resort. SUVs will be best to travel for last few kms. in summer the climate is excellent for a weekend with family and kids. Also don't forget to try the spa its new and very good.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. If u r lazy ask for a room close to restaurant.

We were looking for getaway to the Nilgiris and were not very keen on the usual tourist places in ooty, so went further into the hills and valleys.
And what an experience it turned out to be!!! The farmstay is near Avalanche dam around 22kms from ooty . It was a bit difficult to find the place but we had the detailed roadmap sent by the hotel after reservation. The last 3-4 kms of road was really different. From the Parking place to the resort ( 2kms of Forest road) you have to go on 4X4 army truck provided by the resort.But once you reach Destiny , you realize that its worth the pain. The landscape is just amazing with a valley and lakes. The farm has around 10-11 horses, cattle, spa, BBQ , fishing pond, vegetable and flowers plantations etc.
There are lot of activities included like Trekking , horse riding, fishing , Bon fire, musical night etc which you will find very enjoyable.
The restaurant is a decent one serving Indian, Chinese and continental . They don t serve drinks. Now the rooms, all the rooms have same view , have a viewing deck. The standard rooms didn t have heaters or fireplaces. The place is located in a valley and it gets windy and chilly quite often. We got one room heater which was chargeable . The rooms are decent but still can be improved, at least we found a bucket in the toilet which was not looking very clean. Overall rooms and service can be improved but the location and the overall farm experience makes up for it.

Room Tip: All the rooms have the same view , luxury rooms are equipped with fireplace
