First of all, the hotel staff are the local experts in sensing / predicting the weather condition. They shouldn't have taken a reservation at the first place if the weather would be like this or atleast kept the customer apprised with the situation before confirming the booking (before getting the advance amount) . . I had a worse experience staying in the resort for two days. Every other hotel available in and around hill area / areas with temperature prevailing around 10s or 15s deg C will have a heater setup available, but in destiny farm stay, there are no room heaters available (which is a basic requirement). When guest asks for that, they make it a point to charge them for that as well The water heater should be on all throughout the day for people to stay safe in the resort, but that's again in a schedule (6AM to 10AM) and (6PM to 10PM). In such a pathetic weather like what was there in the resort for the 2 days, we should ideally have the water heater on 24 hours (which is a basic requirement again) but Destiny Farm stay never did that. All thro' the last 2 days, we were stuck inside the room and unable to make use of any of the outdoor events but they still charge the guest for all that (room charges should be inclusive of that) Food is overpriced for the quality and taste! Obviously I didn't expect to pay 4. 6K odd rupees for 2 days for a substandard quality of food No Mobile connection, no proper WiFi setup (Rain Water shortsighted the router point, it seems) Overall, a pathetic experience and I had wasted approx. 30k for such a stupid experience. Kudos to all the efforts taken up by the resort crew in ensuring I spend a worthless weekend at the property Finally, to the resort people, "Don't be money minded, that will never take you guys anywhere. "
Had been here with my 3 years old. So I was looking forward for some fun for my kid. And Destiny Farms made our holiday unforgettable They have a horses stable with good number of horses there. The little one got so excited see it as she was even allowed to feed them. They also give you a good horse ride They also have a cows milking unit. Here they take you and practically explain you how they take milk from the cow. Yet again another brownie point from my little one Also they have a small pond with few ducks which obviously excited my little one Apart from the excitement for kids, it is indeed located so beautifully with greenery all around. They also have good options like karaoke, river crossing and much more Also they experience of just getting there is awesome as you cannot take your car inside. You need to park your cars at their set location and from there they take you in their van through the rugged-muddy roads and you feel like you are travelling between the woods Overall a fantastic stay.
Recently back from a vacation and while the overall experience was good there are couple of things that should be improved . 1)The resort being pet friendly, there were couple of stray dogs that came in to the property which created some tense moments for me . 2)The food choices are limited . 3)If you prefer to eat your food outside the restaurant, you need to deal with a lot of flies . The phones in both the rooms that we stayed did not work and was definitely inconvenient . 4)Please ask the front desk to explain everything even if you have got all the details in an email about your package.
Terrible experience according to the tariff, it just a normal room. Everything was expensive. The appearance was very good, location was also excellent. Rooms and the food were not reasonable. Services were bad, the staff's behaviour was pathetic. Pick up and drop facility was available because it was located in the forest. I only stayed at this place for an hour.
This was my annual vacation that I have been planning for quite some time. With lots of research and reviewing, I free zed on DESTINY FARMSTAY. I stayed here for 2 days during January 26-27 with my family (wife & 8 year old daughter). We just loved the resort, especially the location, landscape & sceneries. It was an out of the world experience. If you do not mind the extremely expensive cost of stay and expensive food bills', you will definitely enjoy this place. Below are some highlights: . . * Absolutely beautiful & stunning view from wherever you are in the resort. Filmy location anywhere you see is for sure * Very decent rooms. I prefer 'superior room' when compared with standard and deluxe rooms, because the superior room has a private balcony & electric kettle * Superior rooms are in first floor, while the standard and deluxe are in ground floor with shared sit-outs. However, the view from all the rooms are the same * Hot water is available during morning & evenings. However it is also made available at other times on-request * Food served is good, but not worth the hefty price they charge. Buffet is served in the noon and night. Ala chart is also an option * Room service is excellent * The staff are very helpful and polite * Non availability of TV and Mobile network is a blessings, as it helps us enjoy the nature without getting distracted * They have lots of complimentary activities planned, which keeps us engaged throughout the day. Some activities are complimentary, however others are not, and very expensive * Complimentary activities are: horse riding, short trek, fishing, access to indoor games, visit to dairy farm, stud, evening barbeque, bonfire * The short trek around the resort in the morning was refreshing, where we could explore the surrounding hills and a neighbouring dam view * Horse riding in the misty mornings is an absolutely wonderful experience, because of the ambience * We can watch the poultry staff milking the cows during the evening. Kids would love to watch this * I enjoyed the zip line activity, and my daughter enjoyed the monkey crawling activity (both cost 350 each as it was not complimentary). Will try to attach the pic of a list * We caught a big fish during the fishing activity in the small pond. The two swans in the pond make the ambience much more amazing * We can while away the evenings by just sitting in the balcony, or just walking across the hills. Such a peaceful and romantic atmosphere * Presence of electric kettle in the superior room is so useful, as the climate demands more intake or coffee/ tea sitting in the balcony * Kids will certainly enjoy the stay because of various factors like: grassy hills all over to play around, horse riding, grazing cows, adventure activities, indoor activist like glass painting, pot painting etc * They also grow some exotic vegetables next to the restaurant. It's a nice experience to visit and see them * Overall an awesome place to visit once, to experience the charismatic weather and ambience Ooty can provide us.
I stayed there in month of September. It was holiday trip. Destination was good as it was clean and climate was awesome. Hotel was located just near to the destination so it was good. Overall experience was very good as appearance, reception, activity, service, room all things were good. Room was spacious and clean. There some activity like game were in the hotel.
I had visited this hotel with couple. The hotel location was excellent. The check-in and check-out was done on time. There was no activity in this hotel. The sightseeing was arranged by the hotel. The food price was expensive. The room facility was well maintained. There was no delay in service. The hotel was located outside of the city. The behaviour of the staff was co-operative. I would suggest this hotel to reduce food price.

The hotel location was good. Everything was very good in this hotel. The activity was conducted at the hotel. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel. I had visited this hotel for family trip.
Very beautiful peaceful romantic breathe taking view the breeze killing cold wind no words to explain. From the time we booked the rooms they were on dot in all aspects. Rooms front office karaoke hall restaurant farms games camp fire all were fantastic. Worth every rupee we spend for the location. It's actually located on the edge of the cliff with a paranormal view of Avalanche. Food was excellent. We should go there for 3 nights 4 days at least to enjoy. We went in June end it was fantastic climate with drizzles and temp was down to 14 deg.
So my fiancee and myself set out from Bangalore after umpteen go ogling sessions, trying to find the right place for us to relax from our commercial stressful lifestyles. By the way, both of us are directors of a Pvt Ltd firm in Bangalore and our stressful lifestyles hardly ever gives us an opportunity to venture out as much we would like to We decided to set out this place called Destiny Farms on Avalanche hills, almost 30km from Ooty. It was a fabulous drive since we had a fairly decent car with us. The drive can be treacherous (crazy hair pin bends) but some careful handling and great navigation can do wonders for you. We managed to reach the dam which was one of the landmarks handed out to us in our map. But, from there on our adventure began. Finding this place became a nightmare. It was drizzling, we had driven over six hours. All we wanted to do was to get to that beautiful serene spot we saw on the website and rejuvenate ourselves. My fiancee tried talking to the receptionist who wasn't really the best guide to direct someone through that dense forest. Nevertheless we were having a great time getting lost with a steep cliff by this huge pristine reservoir on one side. T'was fun while it lasted but after two hours of rambling up and down, we managed to get ourselves to a dead end. By now, it was pouring in buckets. The car could not be reversed because of all the grass we had under our tyres. I asked my fiancee to get down and look for a rock. All this while thinking she would know what to do with it. And in that rain and with our dangling situation, I said, "put the thing under the thing" and revved my accelerator. Next thing that I see is my fiancee drenched in muck from head to toe. That was it for her and she wanted to return back to Bangalore. With a lot of coaxing, I managed to find my way to the parking lot soaking wet. The best and the worst part was that we had to travel almost 3km on slushy muddy pothole filled terrain to this magical place we had only seen in pictures. We realized we were lost for over two hours, we waited at their parking lot for over an hour and took us another half an hour to get to Destiny Farms Soon, as we entered the realms of destiny farms, all our pains turned into euphoria. We were taken aback by the serenity of the place. Of course it was getting dark and the place was filled with fog and mist. But to smell the woody cabin of ours, to see a nice cosy bed and a clean bathroom was good enough to make us happy. To top it up, they offered us hot french fries and club sandwiches which was good enough at that moment. We relaxed for a bit and moved on to their dining area which looked like an old texan pub from the movies. What got us going was the lovely fireplace and some books to read. The food was also great. Food prices are kind of steep but the fact that they provide a great menu at a location which is far from civilization justifies the cost. We had a snug night and woke up pretty early in the morning. That is when the magical world of destiny farms hit us. The organic farm filled with herbs, the stables, the lake right in front of our room surrounded by green mountains, the quack of the ducks. It was definitely worth the ride. I took my camera and we walked right through the farm to the lake, where we sat and had wonderful moments together. We came back right in time for breakfast which was lovely. We stayed there for a couple more hours till it was time for us to go. This break was chortled and work beckoned us. I tried stopping everywhere I could to get some images which would truly bring back memories from our short lived experience.
Was looking for a nearby destination (to B'lore) which was different from the usual commercial places and where my family (wife and two kids) could enjoy well Amenities :. A) The room was decent, not sound proof though, could hear any small noise outside be) Had to follow-up a lot to get hot water in the bathroom - they indicate fixed hours for it in the morning and evening and anything beyond, we are at the mercy of the housekeeping staff to get it working - took 45 min to get it fixed C) The walk down to the fishing pool and the walk back up is strenuous for people with knee problems or fatigued legs (quite steep), however this can be expected in a hill-station the) The aggrieving was nice, so was the dairy farm, horsetrading - they have excellent horses there E) Good spa of) Food was good, but quite expensive (comparatively). There were numerous flies and one actually fell into the Dale we were eating. We were told it is the season. They could do something about this though G) There are good activities but most come with additional price. The highlight for us was the early morning walk - thoroughly enjoyed and went both mornings. The dog (jackie? Made sure everyone started off (literally) and escorted us along with the guide to a very scenic spot (1/2 hour trek )which had a very private cottage (only one). Just one security guard to take care of this H) The karaoke session was nice with retro numbers Overall, very beautiful location, the bumpy ride makes it interesting and overall good fun Staff : Very courteous and helpful. One suggestion is the billing break-up can be improved to keep it simple and relating to the quote made before the trip. I found it quite complex. They can have reference to the quote in the bill (explicitly) Hope this helps.
I didn't face any difficulty in finding the hotel as it was located inside the city in a decent locality. The hotel interior and exterior was excellent. It was a family pilgrimage and the staff at the hotel were helpful, friendly and attend to the entire request. The room was spacious, clean and well maintained with all the amenities at good condition. I didn't face any delay during check-in and check-out. They provide food according to our taste and it was enjoyable. There were many activities provided by the hotel management. The money spent on the hotel was worthy and I would like to recommend this hotel to others.
Overall great place. The Farmstay property is quite offbeat from the main Ooty city. This is really amongst nature. Excellent property with good amenities, no TV so its good for a relaxing family time. Good rooms, we got a room just under the kitchen(on 1st floor). So it was noisy at night till around 12 midnight. A lot of outdoor and indoor activities, games etc. We loved fishing, glass painting for kids, horse riding was thrilling. It was a well maintained Spa and a good Ayurveda massage. The Tractor ride is a must-go option. A lot of pretty sights around this property. There are some activities included in the tariff but most of them are to be paid extra. All in all a very relaxing time. You need 4X4 vehicle or a sturdy vehicle like a Innova/ Tempo traveller to reach this place from Ooty. Normal cars will take a great deal of wear and tear. The terrain is rocky and hilly, no proper road available.
Location was not convenient but it was a very good place. I travelled this place by my own vehicle. It was located in a remote place. Staff behaviour was excellent there with me. Room was neat, clean, and spacious. Overall, it was very good. From inside and outside look of the hotel was very good. Food was also good. Variety was there. Lots of activities were available there but swimming pool was not there. No sightseeing trip organized by the hotel people. Good view was seen from the room. It is a very good place. Location, appearance, and check in or check out process were very good. Service, room, food, and activities were also very good there. Hotel was little expensive. I have already recommended this hotel. I visited there with my family in January 2014.
