“Great place and heavenly view”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Great place to unwind and relax. Stayed in the front lake facing rooms. Was rewarded with a spectacular sunrise, the golden sun rising between the mountains and the valley below along with emerald lake covered in morning mist. It is like you are in heaven.

If you are visiting Ooty and nature lover, this place is a must!!!

Feast your eyes on all shades of green as you drive through the aptly named area,Emerald, deep in the heart of the Nilgiris. An hours drive away from Ooty, this green trail leads you to the quaint and beautifully situated Red Hill Resort.
The path that leads to it is no doubt a rocky one, literally, but the sight that awaits you at the end of it is worth the jarring of your spine, and the suspension of your vehicle.
A lovely cottage, surrounded by cheerful flora and fauna, a breath taking view of lush tea estates on one side, eucalyptus, pine, and cypress forests on the other and an awe inspiring view of two, of the five, lakes nestled inbetween the blue mountains. Sounds of barking deer, the chirping of various birds are the only sounds that puncture the serenity here.
The gracious owner and his soft spoken spouse greet you personally as you arrive. We stayed in the lake facing room which had its own porch and rocking chairs. The room was good, the bed and linens, comfortable and the bathroom nice sized and clean. No toiliteries, except soap and towels, are provided.
The food is simple, wholesome and farm fresh.
Activities like fishing (you'll be really lucky if you catch one!) cycling, trekking through the tea estates and forests are what you can do during your stay there. You could also hire a private guide for the above activities for a fee.
Do visit Red Hill to commune with nature and recharge your batteries.

If you want to find peace visit the Red hills Nature resort which I would term as somewhere between a homestay and a resort. We were told to park our car somewhere between ooty and emerald and the staff picked us up as the roads , well are just trails , and one may not be able to drive through.
You could take a day long guided trek or have a few hours jeep ride to near by sightseeing of the lake and some points which are totally un-inhabitated.
The hosts have a lovely dog named Moby. Moby would be waiting at your doorstep in the morning with a stone. If you are confused or scared dont be. Moby would just want you to play fetch. I haven't met a friendlier canine before.
The view from the resort is simply breathtaking.
Great place for a visit with group of friends or family for a couple of days.

Room Tip: you could camp out in the open too if you are a group .

This is probably the only resort in that area. Its a romantic and relaxing hideaway just off ooty and the lake views here are simply stunning. The food is okie dokie stuff. There is a lovely temple inside the property too which we found as the cutest temple so far we visited. The nearby hills provide a great opportunity for trekking and the hosts even offer a 4 wheeler jeep drive on request. Apart from that, one could trek to the nearby lakes through the potato and carrot farms. The lake is so pristine and the place is heavenly. The rooms are of colonial style and not modern enough. They have a rustic look and a nice fireplace. The bathrooms could do better with some refurbishment. The place can be reached by a taxi drive from ooty offered by the hosts or you could even take the local bus till emerald and then ask the resort folks to pick you up.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the lake.

Pros - Great location. Perfect for folks who want to get away from city life, hussle bussle. Calm,quite,beautiful. Great food and service. We stayed in top two rooms [new ones] and they have more privacy and great view. Must things to do - Trekking to peak of red hill mountain [4th highest peak in the district] and evening safari with sunset point to nearby forest. This place is the last human habitation and then follows the wild jungle. Make sure to carry sun tan lotion and mositurizer as the sun heat is pricky. Mr Vinod and his wife were great host and took care of us from every aspect. Amazing food even though the resort was not occupied to it's capacity. Loved playing with there german shepard "Mobi". Overall excellent experience!!

Cons - Little uphill ride to get the resort. 4X4 is recommended.

Room Tip: Top two rooms have got amazing view and privacy!
