Red hills nature resort is now quite a known name in the weekend near-Ooty-but-away-from-Ooty travel circuit. The front two rooms of the property have amazing views. The lakes near the area are pristine and isolated top the extent that you will not believe that hordes of travellers have not yet discovered it. I hope it stays so. The place is pure and unpolluted and cannot support mass tourism. The food, including the non-vegetarian fare (that also has the occasional fish on the menu) was excellent when we had gone, so I can't say for the apparent bad experience of a few others on this forum. Please note that all rooms are charged the same rate but it is only the front two ones which have the views and are actually worth more than the money you pay for them. Yes, all activities are charged extra, as they should be, unlike some other people on this forum who have been cribbing about that. The nearby lakes should be visited (most will need a car) and there is a small trek to the top of the hill at the back that should also be done. Yes, hot water could be a slight issue, but you can't ask for running hot water in a place like this at any time of the day. It is time that some maintenance be also carried out to the units. Despite these small issues, overall, Red Hills is an excellent place, wonderful views, great isolation.
