While skeptical to start with because of a long journey and tiring (last mile) approach, things started to brighten up as we started to settle in. It was an extended family gettogether, 10 adults, 3 kids and 2 toddler/infants, hmm, large party :).
Hot pakoras, freshly brewed coffee (supposed to be from the same estate) in midst of twinkling fireflies was an excellent experience. Serene surroundings, cool evening, firepit dinner really charged us up.
Some of the hikes around the resort were challenging enough, Dilip(host) guided us with more trails that we could explore on our own.
We had booked for 3 guest houses/rooms and each were comfortable and could accomodate our gang with ease. They were well isolated but still near enough. Bathrooms could have been better especially the hot water which was more of a scheduled things vs being available through the day. But given the weather it wasn't a deal breaker.
Dilip was an excellent host making things happen at a clock precision. You get to really appreciate his efforts when you experience some of sub-par services that others provide in the vicinity. Plantation walk was educational.
We had a 6 month baby and we had absolutely no issues at the resort. Amenities were good to coupe for the 2 nights we had planned, definitely my wife had packed quite a bit for the baby. (except the long journey back to Bangalore, thx to our bullok-cart driver).
Overall this was a pleasant stay and a good trip. To top it, we had a chance to attend the village fesitval which was an absolute wonderful experience by itself.
