Ravens nest is a hidden gem in the Nilgiris. I found it on a random search in the internet and it felt safe to book a small homestay in these pandemic times. I only expected a small basic 3 bedroom homestay appropriate for a weekend getaway, but it was mind blowing to see how beautiful the huge property, the excellent hospitality and the entire experience was. The landscaping bursting with every imaginable colour of flowers, the extremely classy and tastefully done decor and interiors, the attentive and cheerful staff, and the delicious food. You are in for a double treat if the owners happen to be at the property too to regale you with their delightful conversations. I have never seen such attention to detail in any luxury resort or owner run homestay, small touches like the electric heated pad, heater in the bathroom, the wood fired pizza dinner at the gazebo, the suspended deck amidst the trees made for such a memorable vacay with the family. Really look forward to visiting again soon.

We had read amazing reviews and seen beautiful pictures of Raven’s Nest before deciding to go, however the place was much more than our expectations. The pictures do not do justice to the charm,beauty and elegance of the place! It is surrounded by tea gardens, very well curated lawns, flowers and sitting areas against the backdrop of the Nilgiri Hills. The rooms are charmingly done with every amenity and more. Hot and cold running water, hairdryer, personal amenities in the bathroom and tea maker, desk to work at, warm water bottles , heater in the rooms….. you name it , it’s there. The staff including Charles, Chandran and Sudha were ever willing to serve with warmth and a smile. This made us very comfortable. The food was prepared lovingly and catered to each ones needs. Kudos to Sudha for trying to remember everyone’s requirements. Dr Srinivas and Vidya were charming, fun and it is thanks to them that we have decided that this will be our place to go to whenever we need a break from Mumbai. Highlights 1. Wood fire oven Pizzas available 2. Vidya’s made Carrot Cake 3. Hot water bottles to tuck into your bed 4. Fireplace in the living room

My wife and I, along with our kid, and accompanied with my cousin's family travelled to Kotagiri and stayed at Raven's nest for three nights and four days.... To begin with we reached raven's nest on jan 28th evening...the expression was jaw dropping..so serene and exotic...so well maintained and clean in all aspects... We were the last from our family to visit Raven's nest....Heard a lot about the property since two years....due to the pandemic we couldnt travel... We ordered onion pakodas and tea and requested them to serve us soon after we reach the property...the weather was getting cold more precisely shivering cold and they played a perfect host to serve us with spicy and tangy pakodas and wonderful tea... That's how we started our stay in Raven's Nest.... The staff are very friendly and took care of all the needs...Food of our choice was cooked and was very tasty...Breakfast is complimentary and stomach filling... out of all the homestay's we had been, raven's nest is the best...We can request for a camp fire and it will be arranged... Kids will surely enjoy the place... To mention about the property owners, Mrs.Vidya and Dr Srini , are a very warm couple ....They gave us inputs on the sight seeing and about dining at Ooty and Coonoor...We spoke about a lot of stuff....I would thank them for their time.. Guys if you are looking for a week end stay or relax from your daily busy schedule...You can surely choose Raven's Nest...The best place to relax....Cheers ...

We both alongwith my brother in law and his wife stayed for just 2 nights 3 days from 28/10 to 30/10/2019 at Raven's Nest. In fact, my brother in law and his wife who were recommended by us to stay in this resort to celebrate their wedding anniversary during the last week of the peak season month of May, this year were so impressed to see the serene greenery with all the colourful flower plants in full bloom around the thoughtfully built resort premises building and also the tastier vegetarian foods served by the efficient chef Paul and his wife. They were also overwhelmed with the courtesy enquiries of their stay experiences made by the resort owner couple Mumbai based Mrs Vidya and Dr V Srinivas every now and then during their entire 3 nights and 4 days stay. That beautiful and memorable experience had by them forced for planning yet another trip alongwith us as a gift for both of us and incidentally to celebrate my brother in law Birthday on 29/10/2019 too here in this resort. The same best hospitality experiences we both also had during our stay but added with yet another staff serving us at all moments in whatever way we needed - whose name was Chandran(& his wife too). We are also thankful to one Mr Suresh, who is our family friend from The Nilgiris (Coonoor) who only helped us in booking this resort on both the occasions and also in arranging the Anniversary and Birthday cakes for us and took all the initiatives to ensure our expectations being fully attended in every respect during the stay. The rooms though neither not small or big, were self contained in many respects with all the amenities carefully thought and provided. Especially, the variety of toiletries provided as also the ortho heat pads kept for use of the guests(if required to overcome strainful body/muscle pains- may be Dr Srinivas good thought implementation) and also the hot air providing fans kept in the bathrooms too ! The small collection of books on variety topics kept in the big common living cum dining hall adds up to these special amenities. To sum of all, if a family or families plan just to relax and enjoy a home away from home stay - taking just a week end trip to the Nilgiris, this Raven's Nest, Kotagiri scores as one of the best choice without any doubt.

As busy doctors we were looking for a quiet extended weekend where we could curl up with a book and without a care. The 'hardware' and 'software" at this charming and exclusive, three room homestay are all 10/10. The serenity, the views, the room decor, the furniture, the tea plantations with its resident deer,the manicured garden patches with their wrought iron furniture -all cleverly curated by the owners Vidya and Shri. Paul and his wife cook delectable dosas while Chandran is on call for all your needs.Just 90 km from Coimbatore airport,find a way to beat the traffic snarl at Mettupalayam and get to Heaven 45 mins earlier !

Thank you so much for your glowing review. It was a pleasure hosting you all. I'm glad you managed switch off from your hectic Bombay schedules and could relax, read your books and you enjoyed the meals. Sorry about the traffic jam at Mettupalayam, Hopefully, the powers that be will do something about it and widen the road or build a bridge over it. Do come back. Looking forward to hosting you again.
