I went to Honey Valley a few years ago actually, but Trip Advisor doesn't let you write a review that's more than a year old. I felt the need to write because my experience was so memorable, and completely opposite to the negative reviews I found here. The location is absolutely stunning. My sister and I took a trip and went on long walks 2-3 times a day, accompanied by the dogs from the estate. The food was simple but soul warming, the kind that you know is nourishing you with simple flavours and homely feels. We had stayed for 3 nights and eaten all meals there, and had also ordered random things from the kitchen as and when we pleased. The day we were leaving, the card machine wasn't working. It just wouldn't swipe my card. And we had no cash. The owner told me that I could make a bank transfer once I reached Bangalore, no problem he said. I was very surprised, he was letting us leave with no guarantee whatsoever that we would, indeed, make this transfer. I promised to transfer the money and left. I've been dreaming of going back there since...

Arriving late one balmy afternoon I was completely mesmerised by the panoramic view of Honey Valley and knew I had landed at a very special place indeed. The hills around the estate are stunning - eerily beautiful, and you'll likely be accompanied on your walks (many are possible) by one of the estates friendly dogs. It felt like being in a very special, magical land in which to spend a few days, and I could happily have stayed for longer. Suresh and his charming wife were very welcoming and kind throughout my stay. However, don't go to Honey Valley if you want luxury, or fancy food, or want to have a party with your friends - that's not what the place is all about. Rooms and food are basic and simple, and it's supposed to be quiet place of reflection, retreat and walking, so people who criticise the facilities are missing the point a bit. Thanks for a memorable stay, Paul.

The owner is a bloody money digger. We were a group of college friends who wanted to book a stay. We were a group of 3 and we selected the basic room for the stay. He kept on insisting us to choose bigger rooms since the price of the basic rooms were less. We weren't some newly married couples to book and amazing room and stay inside it all day long. We mainly booked this stay for the tadiandamol trek. Finally we booked the stay and we reached the place. The owner was very rude and literally ignored us in front of his other guests. He doesn't deserve to be the owner of such beautiful place. He's just interested in how much money you're going to spend. Doesn't know that he's into a business and he should treat all his customers politely. The place is beautiful but the people who takes care of it,he's one the most arrogant,idiotic hosts I've ever dealt with. Learn to respect every customer if yours, otherwise better stop this stupid resort business.

The stay is on top of the mountain which can only be reached by their 4X4 Jeep. The ride in the jeep in itself was an experience :-) Well, as far as hotel is concerned; it is well maintained and clean. The food had limited option but was good and descent. You have lot of place around the hotel o roam and explore the nature.

This is my first bad experience with “honey valley” resort where I want to share with you guys / by seeing positive reviews I have booked honey valley resort for 2 nights. > Day1 when we reached honey valley resort it was late around 7pm (so I called and informed resort guys please prepare dinner for 5 ppl), when we reached resort uncle and aunty received us and taken us directly to dining hall. they have prepared 2 curries, roti & rice taste is not so good we taught like 200rs per plate is more, then we informed morning breakfast we don’t required it. > Next day morning when we went to dining room for asking milk for my kid , they were saying breakfast prepared for you as well have it, you won’t get nearby any tiffin shops ( I just looked around what variety they have prepared it was bread & jam ) for that they were charging 150rs per plate . I rejected saying I don’t want breakfast yesterday night also I informed you same . there onwards there attitude has been changed & no proper response , when I went for asking milk they have closed door in front of face saying kitchen closed even though ppl are having dinner in front of me . in my mind I taught like :- He is losing 5ppl (Lunch, dinner & breakfast) which is costing 7K that’s the reason there attitude has been changed, As resort price is less where he can’t earn more money except in food and fire camps ... Those who are going first time try to have it in Udupi restaurants we had very good (Lunch, dinner & breakfast) its came around 2k for 2 days (Normally who ever going first time please prefer outside you will get good restaurants in every junction nearby around 5 to 6 kms) when we are paying money it should be worth enough

One of our best family holidays to date. The location is wonderful (all the more because it is not easily accessible). The family and staff running the Estate are very nice. The food brilliant (the taste and the variety) and the treks are wonderful ( Not to mention the Estate dogs which accompany you on the treks).

We went on a leisure trip in the first week of December 18 and was quite relaxing. If you are a nature-lover, it's your type of place. No fancy stays, it's just basic but comfortable stay. Probably the best property will hilly, cool climate and densely covered forest with beautiful wild and colourful flowers. Tariff is affordable and hosts are co-operative. They can definitely be a little more customer friendly. Food quality is average, they don't re-heat and flies hover over all the time. The best part always is the NATURE!

Year after year we grow old but with HoneyValley it grows younger and greener. Thanks to the wonderful hosts Suresh Chengappa sir, Susheelamma and team. The hospitality we receive is unmatchable. Food is excellent. Chingara is this homestays show stopper. We will have a lot of trails to explore. Pack your backs and get going. Until next time thank you for everything.

Honey Valley is one the best places have stayed at in the resent times. This resort is located 4000Ft above sea level in the middle of coffee estate and Forest. No luxury whatsoever just a simple place to relax in the middle of the forest and Coffee estates. Food served is Primarily Veg, Non-Veg only on request. Food served is simple home made local cuisine. Home made wine is the best. There are many flavors of wine, we tasted 4 different variety. They do give you samples to taste. We liked wine made of Gooseberry. Rooms are very simple, more of a cottage kind of. You need to keep you volumes down, else the guest next to your room could hear crystal clear!! If you are traveling by your personal vehicle you need to park it at the foot of the Mountain at a parking lot and take their 4X4 Jeep to reach to the top. Hold the railings of the jeep tight, because the ride would very bouncy! you will enjoy the view on the way to the resort. Do not forget to spot a small water fall on the way. At the resort, do not expect any kind of urban luxury. There are no fans, AC and TV any where. It is hard to even get good Phone signal! But if you are a nature lover, and you want to get away from your usual hustle and bustle of city life you are at the right place. Just relax and do nothing, enjoy the sound of birds chirping, wind blowing, mist passing through the surrounding mountains. If you want to explore the places around, do ask the staff they would help you. There are few trekking trails around, which you can try. You need lots of energy to walk around. Have good amount of breakfast and the start your journey. Make sure your are wearing the right gear to trek, because the ground could be very slippery. If your are planning to travel during rainy or winter season, You need to watch out for leeches. There is plenty of them. Simple tool to carry would be a White Colgate tooth past. It was very effective. Just apply little bit and it will loosen. Do not Panic!! The hospitality of the owners and the staff is very good. Owners interact with every individual guest and make sure every thing is arranged. Morning breakfast is arranged between 8 to 9:30, Lunch is between 1 to 2:30 PM and Dinner is between 8 to 9:30 PM. If you need any special dish apart from what is available in the buffet, you need to tell them in advance. If you need something special for lunch you need to inform them during breakfast. Non-Veg is prepared only on prior request. Do not forget to try their Wine. I am sure you will discover the real pleasure of doing nothing!!
