We found Mount N Mist through their sister hotel in Ooty town called Hotel Maruthi Cottages. That hotel was alright and perfectly fine for the price that you pay. The fact is, however, that the real beauty of Ooty cannot be experienced if you only stay in the main town. You MUST stay somewhere a few kilometers from the center, and Mount N Mist was perfect for us.

We noticed the billboard for Mount N Mist hotel at Maruthi Cottages and the sign said "trekking" which was just what we were looking for, so the staff at Maruthi Cottages got us into contact with Mount N Mist. Mr Ravi, the owner of both places, came over right away with his guide Nathan to speak with us about the trekking options they offered. The price was quite a bit higher than was our usual budget in India, however we were almost immediately convinced by what Mr. Ravi had to say. This in itself was quite a big statement as we have been steadfastly sticking to the budget. We had already been on the road for four months, and needed to ensure funds would last. Upon speaking with him, though, we could tell right that off the bat he was not trying to sell us anything in a rushed manner, but that he really stood by what his other establishment had to offer - and to be honest, we trusted his smile, some things you can just sense. So, we took a gamble, and it turned out that it was worth every penny!

Mount N Mist hotel was clean, cozy, refined, and had lovely views over a small village and distant misty hills. Throughout our whole stay the entire staff was extremely friendly, professional, and helpful. No request was met as the slightest burden, and they indeed seemed to know what we required before we did. Another welcomed surprise that we experienced was that their courtesy did not just end at their front door; they seem well acquainted with travelers' needs, and helped us out and gave us advice with our plans post-Ooty. These seemingly small extensions of courtesy can be a huge relief for the road weary, and indeed it was this kind of attention to detail that only enhanced our stay. They really made us feel at home and comfortable and the resort was actually a perfect antidote for a long time spent on the road in less than sparkly places, so to speak.

The best part by far was Forest Walker Nathan's services. We signed up for one trek that evening, but ended up going walking with him 3 days in a row! We could tell that Nathan was as excited to be exploring the hills as we were, sharing his knowledge of the wildlife and the people who shared the landscape. We were lucky enough to sight lots of deer, bison, monkeys, plenty of birds, and even a glimpse of a tiger in the distance! As knowledgeable as Nathan is, he was equally as concerned with ensuring that we were as happy as possible with our experience, going above and beyond what his duty called for, and we are sure he does this with everyone. Our specific treks were not for the faint of heart; if you are up for it, come prepared with proper footwear and be ready to tackle some steep hills. (On one trek we were paired with some morons who decided to wear chappals, and it slowed us all down !) If you are more keen for a slower day out, we are sure Nathan can accommodate all, as indeed we saw him heading out with all types of people, even a group with a lot of little kids. We let Nathan take the reins though, and really push us into high gear - and we are very glad for it. In the end, the walks were rewarding and unforgettable experiences, and we can say without any doubt that Nathan is truly the Holy Grail of trekking guides, and cannot be matched for enthusiasm, know-how, and stamina. We were reminded of this on our next trekking jaunt shortly afterwards in Munnar, where our guide there utterly paled in comparison, and we sorely missed our friend!!

We highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get out into nature, and have an off-the-guidebooks experience. The hotel is the perfect place to rest after a wonderful hike with Nathan, with delicious food and great service. The experience for us went far beyond the price we paid, for sure, and we will definitely come and stay again. Thanks again to everyone at Mount N Mist!

What else you want on a vacation! Luxury,serenity, class, comfort, service,ambience,cuisine,adventure .......it's all there. How to start....we landed on a Friday morning and I was stunned by the landscape thrown ahead on front of me. I just couldn't forget the breathtaking view of the entire Mysore plains and the vast land of forest just below us when a coffee brewed my nostrils .i had a good bath and started for a trek after my complimentary breakfast.after an half-hour drive started trekking. God ...... We sighted the most endangered species of India, the great Bengal tiger with its fiancé perched on a rock after a kill. Believe me it had the blood marks over its jaws. Later we spotted bisons,elephants,barking deers and numerous peacocks.came to the resort and enjoyed the bonfire and the barbecue. Tandoori chicken baby corn manchurian tasted so good all was made to order. But we all we wished. Slept so cozily on that big bed only to be waken up for an early morn trek to the nearby kallaty falls . But there was no water at all. It was disappointing but the trek was good. Later we drove back and had south indian food. Rested a while and went to mudhumalai and bandipur sanctuary.though we dint sight tigers... We saw so many group of wild elephants, sambhars, spotted deers,a fox, and lion tailed macau's. came back and surprised to see Ravi the MD of the resort holding a party for us and two other family. My wife and my kid enjoyed the stay throughly and I do highly recommend this resort to all. You will never be disappointed.

Last minute booking for our 2nd wedding anniversary celebration with our 6 month old baby.I was little bit concerned with baby hygiene but the owner Mr Jolly assured me to provide us best couple room n arranged the cake for us in last minute demand.

I must say ultimate place to spend in Nature : Easy to approachable location at 9th hair pin bend, close to nature surrounded by greenery n fields , very well maintained property with clean rooms, clean bathroom n well maintained garden area.

Serving by staff was too good. Very humble n nice people to serve us during our stay.
I must say the overall package was fantastic !!!!

If anyone ll be visiting Ooty then its the right place to stay in Mount n Mist resort because Ooty is almost 20 minute drive from this resort.

Mount n Mist really mean it : Once you open ur room window can see the mountain around n early morning the window will be covered with mist. Throughout the day cool wind will be blowing n making u refreshing. That's the right place to spend with Nature.

I would love to visit here again with our couple friends n family.
