“We loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2011

I always dreamt of a house like this one. My dream came true. The views are awsome & food excellent. Best holiday ever. Sandeep & his efforts to showcase the Nilgiris makes it a come again destination.

Room Tip: Rooms very well done clean & comfortable. Furnishings of very high quality

We just got back from staying at Teneriffe for 4 nights & 5 days. Had a really good time, was a bit hesitant re: home stay as this was our 1st one in India. But really Sandeep & his family gave us all the privacy we needed. It's a beautiful property with a very well maintained garden were we spent a lot of our time. The food was great & the views from the lounge/living area is a million dollar view!

Overall we would def go back!

Room Tip: The room at the back of the house is good if you want privacy.

We just returned from a relaxing and refreshing three night stay at Tenerife at Tranquilitea and are already itching to go back. From the fabulous hospitality and knowledge of our host, Sandeep, to the beautiful landscape and peaceful atmosphere of the plantation, everything was wonderful. The rooms are a very good size, nicely appointed, and felt private despite being a part of the main house. Food was outstanding (breakfast, dinner, afternoon tea) and you can provide your preferences in advance: we had a mix of western, Indian, and a trip to the quaint Coonor club one night for dinner. Very nice touch. We did a few extra curricular activities: a trek with Sandeep (very leisurely), a climb up the mountain (little harder!), tea tasting (just the right amount of theory and practice from Sandeep), and a ride on the train to Ooty (Sandeep's personal attention ensured that we got a ticket despite the train being booked out two months in advance).

Room Tip: Both rooms were suitable for two adults

"The Bungalow" at Ooty managed by Tranquilitea is truly a home away from home. I had booked the entire Bungalow located in the heart of Ooty near the Race Course for 3 days. The occasion - my parents wedding anniversary and my son's freedom from Board exams.
The caretaker Amudha and her family took enough care to make our stay very memorable and what I liked is their prompt service and never say no attitude. The best thing about the package was the FOOD and being a foodie this comes top on my priority list. Amudha charged us ONLY for the ingredients that were used to cook our meals. You can't believe it,but yes its true. The cost used to be a measly 200 or 300 bucks for a great meal dished out to a family of 5 foodies !!!! Its always said that our appetite increases while we are at a hill-station and if the food is great, what a combination for a hearty meal be it vegetarian or non-vegetarian....
The Bungalow has 3 large bedrooms with attached bathrooms; a dining room and a living room with a lone Television set. The Bungalow must be atleast 80+ years old but well maintained and the furniture is real antique. T he weather was very cold even while it was scorching summer elsewhere in India but the caretaker ensured we were kept warm by lighting firewood at the fireplaces located in every bedroom and living room. Fortunately there was no power shutdown while we were there and this ensured 24 hours hot water running in the taps. The place is well maintained and kept very clean including the bed linen and bath towels changed every day.
The Bungalow has a sit out in the open lawns outside, where one can enjoy nature and chirping of birds while sipping hot coffee. I could spot so many sparrows which is now rare in cities like Bangalore. At night one can use the Barbeque setup but thanks to rains every evening, we had to give this a miss.
On the trail of Rocky and Mayur of HOMP fame (NDTV Good times), we also took time to meet Sandeep Subramani at Coonoor, who manages Tranquilitea. Tranquilitea apparently appeared in this famous Foodie TV show recently. He showed us around the vast tea gardens located within the other property called Tenerife. We were treated to the best tea I ever had in my life (without milk and sugar) plucked from the tea gardens. I never ever imagined, tea tasted so good in its original form. Sandeep is a young entrepreneur (mid 20s perhaps) who says "Tea runs in his veins more than blood" and is very passionate about tea tasting. He is now successfully into managing Holiday stay properties at Ooty and Coonoor.
I would rate "The Bungalow" highly and recommend to all my friends who read my travel blog http://arvind-kamath.blogspot.com
