“Blue hills at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2010

A great place away from the hustle-bustle of the city. It is a place that suits all whether you are laid back, romantic or adventurous. The rooms are cozy with wooden flooring and a fire place. This place has a very Irish feel to it. Surrounded by the beautiful lake on one side and a dense forest on the other it is a perfect location for trekking, hiking and adventures.
This place would be more fun with a larger group as it adds to the fun of the camp fire that comes as a part of the package.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2010

I booked a 3 day holiday for my family over email. The replies to confirm the bookings were prompt, transactions were smooth and I got a map of the resort, as it is about 30 km away from Ooty town. We travelled with a driver & accommodation for him was taken care of & food arranged at about Rs. 150 per day.

On reaching there, we were told the vehicles stayed at the parking lot and the last 2km trip was made in an army one-tonner, because the last leg of the journey was through forest area. The trip was an adventure in itself.

We got a warm welcome on arrival. The decor of the place is very nice, the rooms comfortable, the views spectacular. There is a lake just outside the resort's boundaries and is beautiful to look at. The resort is very close to the forest area but well-fenced and safe. The resort has a western theme that turns up in the labelling of different areas, names of rooms (like Billy the Kid, Buffalo Bill, Alain Quartermain etc. - the King's Cliff touch continues here)

The supper area has a colonial aura to it and it makes for cozy dinner experiences. The food was absolutely brilliant & the very civil staff is always checking to make sure the dining experience is great!! The staff is courteous to the extreme and it looks like they have customer service drilled into their heads afresh every morning. Particular mention for the very capable Anand, who manages operations with an unruffled and calm demeanour.

The place is completely cut off from Ooty town and therefore not at all touristy. Most of the area did not support mobile phone coverage (at least, not my service provider, though BSNL had coverage) and that was a good thing. I got to relax the good old fashioned way, without hearing the phone ring!

We had asked for a birthday cake, as it was my mother's 60th birthday - and it was a fabolous cake, as good as any i would have found if I had stayed home.

Every meal was an assault on the senses. The dal makhani was highly recommended by the executive chef and it didnt disappoint. The chinese/ thai food was beautifully flavoured and delicious, the desserts were completely out of this world, particularly the Destiny's special secret recipe white chocolate brownie.

There are activities one can do while there - the horseriding trail was very nicely located. You can go on treks, valley crossing, rappelling etc. We tried the valley crossing, which was undertaken safely and was great fun.

The resort is a wonderful place to be for a Honeymoon trip.
The Place is just blessed with Nature,The Long Trek and the Lake barbecue is a fantastic experience.
The staffs ,,,well behaved Very polite,and always Smiling....They made Our candle Light Anniversary Dinner really a memorable one.
We had another couple staying with us in the first floor.They asked us to check out the River crossing ...
The stay in destiny is become one of First Anniversary memories of my life time.
Overall I would say this is probably the best Farm stay of its kind in India. I am extremely fussy! about food and the food is really great a bit spicy ,
the overall experience staying in destiny is great
Felt at home.
