“Stay in Kutta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sometime back, we had been to this place called Manu Estate in Kutta. The hosts Manu Uncle and Muthu Aunty were very warm in welcoming us to the property. We are a group of 6 people and 2 kids. We took the old bungalow and it was a very good experience staying there. The place is neat and clean. Food can be improved a bit. Rest of the stay was smooth. They had arranged a night safari into the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. Spotted a couple of Tuskers and deers, nothing other than that. Overall stay was good.

Room Tip: Take a room in the new bungalow if you are particular about modern interiors.

I am very happy to rediscover The Green Retreat today while browsing idly on tripadvisor. My stay here during our family visit to Coorg during Durgapooja holidays in 2008 was equally unplanned. We (parents, sis and I) were on our way to Madikeri from Ooty. It started raining very heavily when we reached Kutta and was already quite late in the evening. Local people in the kutta market on the highway told us about the homestay and we checked in. This was our first ever visit to a homestay and we didn't know what to expect.

There were two options to stay. One the cottages and another in the lower floor of the beautiful house of the hosts. Aunite (Muthu) showed me the house option. It had two big bed rooms with attached washrooms and one huge living room and I took it without seeing the cottages. The place was like my house in Mumbai, only much bigger.

By the time we made ourselves comfortable, she prepared snacks for us. It had some spicy fried chicken and much more. It was very very tasty. The Nagarhole reserve was closed that time of the year. At night uncle (Manu) took us on his jeep to a trip on the road in the reserve. In the dark we could see many pairs of eyes gleaming from behind the bushes. Animals were looking at us while we could not see them. Luckily we found a small family of elephants with a small baby on the road.

We had a sumptuous dinner and woke up late next morning. We had our plans made and could not stay any longer. Buoyed by our homestay experience, I chose another homestay in Madikeri, but the experience was not half as good. I hope to visit The Green Retreat again someday.

In short, I would recommend the place without any reservations. Infact, if you give Manu a call I am sure that he would be kind enough to give you valuable advise to make your trip more enjoyable.

Visited this home stay with my wife last month.This was a blessing in disguise as the place we were originally booked, could not accomdate us for some domestic reasons(acceptable).We really enjoyed the hospitality extended by both Manu and Muthu.Rooms are really big and spacy.The cook Nethravati provided us with the real taste of Coorg food in combination with Kerala flavour( veg)Manu arranged our siteseeing.We got to know of Coorg culture from Muthu.Very cordial and friendly couple made our home stay here very memorable.Have a beautiful estate behind with a good landscape.Great for a family to enjoy nature with fun and good Coorgese food.

Thumbs UP to this couple.

I was a bit apprehensive about staying in a homestay but THIS place has changed my definition of homestay forever...Everything about this place is just PERFECT..the rooms are REALLY BIG and SUPER CLEAN...the people (uncle Ayappa & aunty Muttu) are very very very cordial.

They had arranged for the campfire in the night just outside their spice garden..and aunt Muttu prepared pineapple souffle for us for desert. The breakfast in the morning was also superb.

If you plan a trip to Nagarhole, dont miss these things: Jungle safari, Irpu falls & GREEN RETREAT HOMESTAY...

This place ROCKS!!!

Travelled here with my wife and 2 kids - clean rooms is a major requirement I have - everything about Green Retreat is clean. The rooms (REALLY spacious), bathroom, towels, quilts, beds.

The hosts (Manu and Muthu) are the warmest you can find - the food was awesome. They took great care of us - with kids, one has lot of additional requirements and needs - they understood and helped us without flinching a bit.

The place is great, calm peaceful - can't ask for more for a holiday.

I'm going back again :)
