This is one place that lived up to its reviews. We spent 3 nights in Flameback. What struck me first was the tranquility. The property is suurounded by hills and coffee planattions, there is even a small lake. We stayed in the paddy cottage, aptly named as we were surroundered by lush paddy fields. It was almost like we were in Bali. The cottage has a nice sit out but we did not get to use it much as it was raining most of the time we were there. We had a look at the villa too but i think the cottage is perfect for a couple. There is a very nice pool too. What i like the best was absence of phone signals! I think only BSNL phones work up there. We called our folks from the reception. And if you a dog lover you will fall in love with the resident alsatians, they welcome you everytime you enter the dining area, they come with you on your walks or guard you cottage door through the night :)
The staff there are very warm and friendly. Food was simply amazing, I am sure i put on a few kgs while i was there. Both indian and continental food is available. Be sure to try their fish dishes! The choice of beverages is ok. There are a lot of outdoor activities that one can do, but we went in the rainy season so the only thing we could do was go on long walks. You can ask them to take you on drives in their SUV. There are some very scenic places, waterfalls, and ancient temples.
The only thing that we were not happy about are any signboards leading to the resort. We had a bit of difficulty, even though they assisted us with directions on the phone.
Overall we had a wonderful time!! We will be back but this time when its not raining :) Thank you Bharath and rest of the staff for making our stay memorable!
