Fortune Retreats Resorts - Ooty
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Checked in on Jan 11th 2014.

It was a wonderful experience for me @ Ooty. Traveled with family, and rented a 3 room cottage. The cottage was clean and gave us a peaceful feelings with its beautiful flowers all around.

We ordered our Dinner & breakfast at the cafe. They served us hot, but everything went cold within few minuets... haha... it was freezing cold.

We took lotz of photos. At night we ask the management to put some campfire for Rs1000. It 1st time experiences for us and was fun as well.

** only negative point was the radio system.... please do not ask for it unless you have your own thumb drive with a collection of songs.

It's a perfect place to stay with family & a group of friends.

Have Fun peeps ... <3

Room Tip: Bring your own collection of songs ( thumb drive) if you are gonna use their system. IF you are...

Date: 12 to 14 Jan 2014
Cottage: Fair Villa

First of all I was in confusion before booking Fortune retreat on MakeMyTrip after viewing lot of negative comments. But now I feel that I made a right choice. It's truly worth for 4 stars.

LOCATION: It's situated at the foots of Doddabetta range very near to tea factory. It's a fantastic location. From my dining hall window I could able to see Doddabetta foot hill. The only issue is you need to travel approx 6kms from Ooty bus stand in a sophisticated road. Book this hotel only if you are visiting Ooty in your own vehicle or planning to book taxi.

HOTEL: It contains approximately 14 cottages with steel sheet roofing in series and approx 8 villas with concrete roofing. In our villa there was a dining hall (with refrigerator, table, wash basin, 4 chairs), a big hall (with LCD TV, double bed, dustbin, 2 couch, a table, wardrobe, make up table & stool), a bathroom (with a gas geyser, western toilet, wash basin with geyser connection, dustbin)

FOOD: It's below average but compared to hotels in the city it scores average. Room service is prompt and they will charge 15% extra for that. Comparetivly pricing is good.

GOOD FACTS:
+Parking at your door step.
+Private lawn for ground floor villas and to all cottages.
+You can enjoy your privacy for sure.
+TV with USB facility, you can enjoy your own music, pictures & movies.
+24 Hours hot water which is much expected in such a weather.
+Villa interior design and layout is good (not best)
+Camp fire facility available at extra cost.

FACTS BOTHERED:
-Staffs are not so Co-operative. They asked us to bring down the luggage to reception 2 hours prior to check out time. When I strongly denied to do so, they became silent. Even room service boys behavior is also kind of rude.
-No shower facility.
-Water is Hard, you can't get rid of soap easily (not recommended for head bath)
-Bathroom floor is too slippery.
-Refrigerator was not working. (Even we didn't required in such a weather)

Room Tip: Villas at the end of the resort compound are much quieter and provides good privacy. I personally re...

We stayed in Fortune retreats in first week of october 2003, We are a group of 3 couple with 2 kids. We got a cottage with 2 bhk and a hall. The upper portion had a Hall and bedroom and lower basement with 2 separate bedrooms with attached bathroom.Rooms are spacious. Hall is big enough to sit and enjoy. If you have a big group will have a blast. Each cottage is like independent house with two car parking and a place for fire camp. The view outside balcony is very nice.

Overall it was a good stay and hotel staff is helpful and co-operative. You will get hot water 24x7.

Food is not that great , it was like ok. Don;t expect a great food and there is no hotel nearby. For food you have to go to city 1KM from this place. We ordered food for dinner for two nights as we don't want to drive just for food.

This place is very cold carry enough warm clothes. It can get as low as 8-10 degrees. We ordered a room heater second day which he charged for 300/- per room which I felt expensive.

We paid 1500/-per cottage.

Great place to hangout with friends. Spacious rooms excellent food and good service.I really liked the place and expecially camp fire. Totally it was a fantastic experience we received from Fortune. The place Belmont where this hotel is located is really nice and the independent cottages will give the privacy.

Stay was really good except the food can be improved on. Nice spacious cottage with bedroom & dinning room with good sight seeing around. Food was not that costly but the taste has to be improved on. Good place for the money paid.

Please do not go there. Its too far from the city. Big rooms but very smelly. Bad toilets. Bad food. We were given a horrible 3 bedroom cottage. Even though I booked a one bedroom cottage. After one day our room was changed. But situation remained same. The only good thing is that the staff is well behaved. But some of them do not understand either Hindi or English.
