Tea nest Nightingale is just off the Kotagiri Ooty main road. The road down towards the property is muddy, narrow and steep so one has to be a bit careful. But once you reach the property you like what you see.

The property is a 4 bedded colonial bungalow now converted to a homestay. The rooms are named after the birds that you see around the property. Emerald dove and Magpie Robin have 2 person occupancy but Hoopoe and Scarlet minivet have a loft which can additionally occupy 2 children. All the rooms have a sit out. The best view is from the Hoopoe sit out, overlooking the surrounding tea estate. We stayed at Hoopoe and spent many happy moments in the sit out, playing carrom, reading a book from their one cupboard library and sharing some drinks. You get to see the same view from the loft window. The place is clean and well maintained. The food is typically south Indian and tasty. The complimentary breakfast is appetizing. The manager Ranjith is very helpful. I had requested Ranjith to arrange for a coffee cake for my hubby's birthday which he had ordered from the local bakery called 'Cake o'clock'; it was delicious.

The first day we just chilled at the property, lazing on the hammock, walking through the tea garden and clicking pictures. At night the sky lit up with a million stars and we could do some star gazing from the lawns. Next morning we saw the sunrise while doing yoga in the verandah. The day was spent visiting the Dodabetta peak, a tea factory, a chocolate factory and the Kodanadu view point which are in opposite directions on either sides of Tea nest. The weather was perfect and being a weekday we did not encounter any crowds.

The next day after checking out we had planned to go on a forest trail at Longwood Shola, but unfortunately, after reaching there we found out that it was not open to the public. So we went on a short trek to see the Catherine falls.

Overall it was a wonderful 3 days spent at Tea nest nightingale. Looking forward to visiting the other properties of nature resorts next time round.

We were touched by your gracious detailed review of your recent stay at Teanest Nightingale. To leave an indelible positive impression on our guests is what we work towards daily. We loved the fact that you enjoyed the property and its environs, stargazing, lying in a hammock, reading a book in the sun room, exploring the surrounding tea garden and managed to fit in some sightseeing as well. On your next visit, do try our other activities such as horse riding, golf and a visit to a tea factory.Do return for another vacation, brimming with both fun and relaxation. Thanking you, Warm regards, Team @ Nature Resorts

This is a quaint little property nestled in the tea plantations right behind a busy highway road leading to Kotagiri. There are just 4 rooms here, 2 of them are of larger size suitable for small families and the other 2 are suitable for couples. However, don’t mistake it to be under equipped in satisfying your needs.

The approach road is a little steep but manageable with some careful driving. Parking is sufficient and safe. The property has a courtyard with a lovely view of the valley and the Nilgiris mountains. However it is not visible from the rooms.

The rooms have a nice sitout area to sip a cup of tea, apart from a high ceiling and spacious bedroom and bathroom to add to the airy feeling. Perhaps the only thing I missed here was a ceiling fan. I understand this is a cold place, but the room does get stuffy without circulating air. Opening the windows is not an option at night due to mosquitoes. Aside from that, all the necessary amenities are in place and the cleanliness levels are excellent.

The dining tables are excellently located, every room has its own 4 seater dining table right outside the room entrance.

The food is excellent here and the every dish ordered was superb and delicious in taste. On request they even moved our breakfast table to the valley facing courtyard to give us a breakfast with a view the following morning. For a small property the kitchen here is deceptively well equipped and the folks made excellent stuff across multiple cuisines, far exceeding our expectations.

Special thanks to all the staff who went out of the way to help us have a fantastic holiday - especially the property manager Mr. Lakshminarayan and team. We will definitely be back again for a longer stay at Teanest Nightingale.

Teanest Nightingale - A true destination for getting pure oxygen. The nature here has gifted the resort an extraordinary location for ultimate relaxation. In a single word, Teanest Nightingale is exactly what you are looking for amidst tea garden.
The rooms, garden, lawn everywhere you can feel the nature and can touch the clouds. You will be bound to stay there more because of the charming beauty and their hospitality.
A great, specifically great hospitality was rendered by the Manager, Mr. Ranjith.
He is a true gentlemen with full of responsibility and punctuality. He arranged everything so smoothly that we got spellbound. He is so caring in nature towards guests. A very good friend he became but he is high on his Professionalism - Special thanks to him for the "Lemon Basil Tea".

The staff Mr. Shijo, is all rounder and very humble person. Every time we found him active and prompt on his service. At any point of time, we got him present just at doorstep. Thanks a lot -Shijo.

The Chef, of course, the dishes he prepared for us, till now is lasting on our tongue.The food was prepared with well maintained hygiene.

One important point: the resort is highly sanitized and well clean & maintained. Temperature checking is there of every guest at the time of check in. The staffs always wear face masks.

We were literally sad at the time of return after our 4 nights stay. Surely, will see you guys very soon.

We visited Teanest Nightingale in April 2022 for two nights. The resort is a very comfortable small bungalow with just four rooms and a serene ambience in the midst of tea estates. The food is excellent and the staff led by the manager Mr Lakshminarayanan are welcoming and very attentive to all our needs. There is a small lawn in front with a very inviting hammock and there is not much to do except unwind and relax. A small book cupboard and a few games along with two resident cats provide entertainment, along with very pleasant weather. This place is ideal for small family groups who want to relax and spend time together away from more commercial spots and resorts. The rooms are also very well maintained and well designed, with a small loft bedroom above the main bedroom which kids will love. All in all, a nice peaceful getaway where you can recharge yourself and go back feeling relaxed.

we had a fantastic long stay for almost 6 nights at Teanest.. Had booked 2 rooms and we were thrilled with the view, weather, location, food, overall stay and would love to repeat this trip again during the summer holidays.

ive decided to skip Ooty - as its become too commercialised like any other crowded indian city. Kothagiri is as fresh as one would imagine - pristine, clear air and clean environs..

Though ,we had been here Twice previously
in 2016 & 2018..,this trip is a much much satisfied one.
The entire credit goes to the wonderful hospitality extended by the full team. Particularly Mr. Laxmi Narayan & Max miller.

The total property is maintained neatly and the food items are prepared in a highly hygiene kitchen .

Moments after the check out, I have booked our next trip in April. That’s the certificate of excellence in a single word.

Well done and Best Wishes to the entire crew.

We stayed at nightingales for a whole week in March. The place, the people and everything about it is so heartwarming that we felt we could have stayed on for a few more days even after a long holiday.

The location is fabulous and the sunrise glorious. The fact that there are only 4 rooms makes it a cosy, homely and intimate experience. The rooms are tastefully done, clean and well lit. The food is fabulous and the fact that make great dishes across cuisines is quite awesome.

Last, but not the least, it's the people who make all the difference. Martin and the team are always around to help and check on you, you feel very well taken care of and they do it in such an unassuming manner that is truly praiseworthy.

This was my first trip to kotagiri and the stay at teanest made it all the more special. Go for a do-nothing holiday and soak in all that kotagiri and teanest has to offer!

After a month long hectic wedding preparations and an adventurous, jam packed honeymoon in northeast. My husband and I needed a break and booked Teanest Nightangle-Nature resorts in Kotagiri for 4 days for our second honeymoon. We drove early in the morning from Bangalore through beautiful Sathyamangalam forest and reached Teanest in the evening. We were allocated a room which was named as “Magpie”. It was very clean and well maintained. The furniture and the collections in the room has a colonic and aesthetic touch to it. The breakfast was served in the lawn and view of the tea states and the mountains around was breathtaking. The scrumptious breakfast kept us full throughout the morning.
Mr. Martin Leo who is the manager at the estate is very friendly and took care of all our needs.
Special mention to Kalai and Manoj for catering our taste buds.

We would definitely return back to make more memories.

Ramya and Supreeth

Absolutely breathtaking view from the property, colonial bunglow type, caring staff, homely food with variety and nice decent rooms. Ideal for "DO NOTHING" holidays. The caretaker Mr.Lakshminarayan was very caring giving personal attention to our needs. Food is prepared as per our requirement. I am allergic to lemon, hence they took extra care to ensure that no lemon is used in the preparation and kept seperately for my other family members.
