Due to the commercialization and hustle bustle of Ooty, any place about 20km away from it is exceptionally serene. The red hills nature resort is a dramatically beautiful place to stay located amidst sheer greenery. It's a beautiful gabled house overlooking the Emarald lake from the top of a hillock surrounded by a lush green tea garden.
For a garden lover, the veggies that they cook come from their small organic farm, from which is really worth a look at.
When we went the owner herself had cooked the food, and it was absolutely light and delicious.
I can not forget the doggies, the extremely friendly German shepherd 'Moby' who will tirelessly play fetch for a whole day and will never refuse a cuddle and adorable puppy 'Apple' which would always interrupt Moby in his game.
Moby showed us along the tea estate early in the morning when we got to see the breathtaking sight of the lake that spreads amidst the hills during sunrise.
The owners are very friendly and may also arrange for fishing or guides for trekking. We ourselves drove down to the foot if the hill to see the small cascade and the clear bluewater of emarald lake at the foot of the hill. The best thing to do at red hills would be to stroll around or trek and enjoy the exceptional view by just drawing your curtains. This resort has the best view of all the resorts located in the place.
We went in October and it was pretty chilly, do take some warm clothing.
Being a bird maniac and an absolute nature lover, the trip was paradise, I would highly recommend it.
