“Nature's Bounty at it's best...Loved it!!!”
Reviewed 25 January 2010

Located in a tiny town of Masinagudi, the 42 acre property gives one ample hues of green and the peace of mind city folks crave for. The cottages are self reliant and provide the essentials of modern lifestyle namely TV, tea-coffee maker, equipped baths etc. The staff is super sweet, esp. a guy called Robert who was most forthcoming with useful tips and suggestions and info.

As the stepping stone to the Madumalai forest, Bamboo Banks is very well planned and laid out despite the wilderness. There is a pool, the vegetables are home grown, there is freshly cooked food from the family kitchen, the owners are warm and friendly! Fruit bearing trees of Chiku, Lemon, Guava, Tamarind flank the farm. The fact that it is not overtly commercial is pleasant and comforting to be honest. The most indifferent and commercial element in the whole experience would be the manager who appeared only in things relating to hiring cabs from his 'own run' cab service. Almost unfriendly and visibly disinterested besides that i'd say.

It lies an hour away from Ooty and two from Conoor should one want to step out and explore the region, but if comfortable with 'being' the property really lets you be. Robert lit a lovely bonfire the night before departure which was enjoyed duly over a bottle of wine. Take the trip to unwind! http://bamboobanks.in/
