This place is indeed a slice from the paradise. Read on...
We were a large group of 12 adults and 8 kids who just came back from a weekend in Red Hills Nature Resort. We travelled by a bus from Bangalore. The journey was long, arduous and tough. Especially the last kilometre or so was particularly rough and absence of any signage leading to this place made it a bit more difficult. I am told that travelling by a car is not that difficult and will surely try it out in next time.
However, on reaching Red Hills we quickly forgot the travel fatigue when we sat by the fireplace and welcomed by the warm hospitality of Mr.Vijay and his staff. I noticed in some earlier reviews that mentioned the owner as a snob. I pity those reviewer(s) as they probably can't distinguish between class and mass. During the entire tenure of our stay never did we hear a single 'no' word from anyone. The fact that the owner and his wife dines with guests in the same dining hall goes a long way to say about the quality, hygiene and homeliness of the food.
We would probably not go back only for food but then one cannot point any finger about the food. One evening we had a bonfire and barbeque which was really top class.
The best part about the resort are the stunning views it offers from just about anywhere. Hills on one side and tea gardens and lake on the other side are a feast for your eyes and soul. The tranquility, unpolluted air and the serene atmosphere are just magnificent. The overall upkeep of the gardens and the property and very very commendable. Flowers of various shapes and sized, colours and hues are things to soak in from this experience.
If you do feel a moment of boredom, Mobi - the inhouse entertaining GSD will keep you fully occupied. Yet to come across a friendlier dog than him.
We went for a trek on the first day to the top of the hill. Apart from the breathtaking views which got better as we climbed higher, it was Mobi's company which made the experience more than worthwhile.
I could keep writing... like the picnic experience which Vijay and his staff organised for us. But I guess you need to go there to experience all these for yourself. Better still here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!!!
