We enjoyed the short stay at Bouganvilla. Mr Thiagu was a great host and made sure our stay was perfect. We had only the breakfast there, and it was one of the best and simple breakfast we had in Ooty in my various visits to Ooty in the last 8 years. Will highly recommend this place for couples and families who want to stay away from big hotels but want a home stay feel at affordable price.

Room Tip: The double room with hall is great for family of 4. The place is just 1 km form the bus stand.

I was looking for a good stay in ooty to celebrate my first anniversary day then one of my friends who stayed here recommended very strongly.

Really surprised right from enquire till checkout response was awesome.

People are in the resort were very kind, care and treated us like their family members.

The room is clean and well maintained. Hot water is available for 24 hours. Food is awesome and really enjoyed eating pongal, chappathi, idly, sambar and non veg items(chicken).
Everything like food, service, rooms, safety are excellent and no way to find a fault. Also there is no worry about the safety.

Since we were there in November it was freezing but the Manager Mr. Thaigu arranged room heater as a complementary. This was really very helpful otherwise situation would have been different.

The resort has own vehicles for sightseeing. We enjoyed two days sightseeing in a brand new Mahindra Verito car. Here we need to say about a humble, obedient and caring person (local guy), our driver Mr. Babu, we never seen such a safe drive by any driver so far. We spent our entire stay with him and he is not looking as a stranger for us. On driving, he is explaining about each and every place on passing and also the traditions of village people (like Badugas, Thodas, etc) in Nilgiri hills. Nothing is unknown to him in entire ooty; apart from the usual places like botanical garden, dhodapetta, Sims park, shooting spot, tea factory, he taken us to the thrilling and adventurous place.

Even though this is my third trip to OOTY but this time I have seen so many place which I hadn’t seen before, I had no idea and information about those place before, really we don’t believe this kind place are there in OOTY.

People arranged cake on request and we enjoyed cake cutting with all staff members

We strongly recommend Bouganvilla.

We were there from 9th Nov till 12th Nov, firstly i would like to thank Mr Thiagu and his staff (Mr Anand, Mr Paneer Selvam, Mr Ganesan, Mr Babu and others) for such a nice and great hospitality. The staff were extremely social and made sure all of was were comfortable, they were very attentive to our needs at any point of time.


It was really a memorable stay, the view from the resort was picturesque and breathtaking.

The cooks Mr Paneer selvam and Mr Ganesan, both of them cooks such a amazing south indian dinner on the very first day when we arrive :) and prepares breakfast dishes for us on request.

Mr Babu our driver, took us for sight seeing and showed us around the places of interest in Ooty, Coonoor, Doddabetta, had a wonderfull time with him too.

Thanks to Mr Anand for arranging the bonfire pit after our dinner at the Earl Secret's glass house restaurant though it was quite late, had a very enjoyable ride back to resort :)

Rooms were big and spacious, clean, and wifi connection is fast and speedy.

Thumbs up!!! We will sure to come back again to this beautiful places and highly recommend this place to our singapore friends as well:)

It's our first wedding anniversary and Stayed in Bouganvilla, Ooty for 3Nights and 4 Days from 11th Nov to 15th Nov….an awesome place for couple and family (right opposite HADP Tree Arboretum)

The moment when we arrived there, Mr. Thyagu, manager came and welcomed us. He himself carried our luggage and guided us to the room. His kind speech and service really impressed us.

We were stunned to see the excellent horticulture they have maintained around the resort. The whole resort is colorful with variety of flowers. Bon fire is available in the lawn.

All the people in the resort were very kind, care and treated us like their family member. I never seen such hospitality anywhere.

The room is clean and well maintained. Hot water is available for 24 hours. Food is awesome and really enjoyed eating pongal, chappathi, idly, sambar and non veg items like chicken and fish. Special thanks to Mr. Anand and Mr. Pannerselvam a very kind and caring persons who served us food for all the 3 days. And also we thank Mr. Pannerselvam for his detailed explanation about the flowers and gardening.

Everything like food, service, rooms, ambience, safety are excellent and no way to find a fault.
Also there is no worry about the safety. The resort has CCTV cameras on right areas and guarded by a watchmen.

The resort has own vehicles for pick up, drop and sightseeing. We enjoyed three days sightseeing in a brand new Mahindra Verito car. Here we need to say about a humble and caring person, our driver Mr. Babu (called as Babuji), we never seen such a safe drive by any driver so far. We spent our entire stay with him and he is not looking as a stranger for us. On driving, he is explaining about each and every place on passing and also the traditions of village people (like Badukas, Todas, etc) in Nilgiri hills. Nothing is unknown to him in entire ooty; apart from the usual places like botanical garden, dhodapetta, Sims park, shooting spot, tea factory, he taken us to the thrilling and adventurous place, the Hanuman cave temple (most of them don’t know about this temple in ooty) which any other drivers can’t. He also took us to another mind boggling place which is near Sri Ranganathar Temple. I bet no one will leave without spending at least an hour in that place; it’s such an awesome location for couple to spend more time. In addition to this, he also took us to Avalanchy, KSR dam, emerald lake and chocolate factory. He is unforgettable person for us. To our surprise, we saw him in his own traditional dress (Badukas) in second day and we took some photos along with him.

After 4 days memorable stay, we left Ooty on Nov 15th evening and reached our home in Chennai on 16th Nov 5am. To our surprise, we received a call from Mr. Babuji at 7 am. He wished us and checked whether we reached safely to our home. We really impressed and this is the gem of their service.

We recommend Bouganvilla for all. Just book it and they will take care of everything.

Hats off to Mr. Thyagu and his team.
Keep up your great service.

I was looking for a hotel for our 1st anniversary and was surprised to see such excellent ratings.
Just spoke to Mr. Thyagu, Manager yesterday and asked him for rates and packages which he emailed promptly. Today, i called him to confirm and to my surprise, he immediately said my name after picking the phone without having to ask who it is. it took my by surprise that a hotel with such excellent ratings maintains the standard and gives personalized service to every customer.
Waiting for December to make my visit and rewrite another review..
