This was the second time I stayed In Fortune Retreat. I called the manager on my way to Ooty and he made sure I get one of the unit. Fortune is in the heart of Ooty, still calm and peaceful as it is at higher altitude, there is a 2 km climb and you can easily drive . . The resort is spread over a stretch of approx a km and it resembles row houses. Each cottage has it's own garden with beautiful seasonal flowers, lawn, portico for parking. Rooms have wooden furnishing and every cottage has a maximum of 4 and minimum of 2 rooms with balconies towards the east. Furnishing is really good. Best part is the resort has no by pass lanes and has a dead end. A complete no-nonsense stay. It's so peaceful in the evenings that you may wish to meditate for some time. There is adequate space between 2 cottages that works like a firewall to conflate you from any disturbance by the fellow visitors. It's so strategically located that you will get a stunning view of the mountains towards the east. Lake and botanical garden are around 3 Km, Dodabetta the highest view point is close to 10 Km. The staff members are sweet and prompt. The food quality is really good and the service is fast. They serve both veg and non-veg north Indian and south Indian dishes. However, you also have a kitchen with each cottage which can be used upon request. I doubt if they serve liquor or not Also, I din't use the recreation room and I don't exactly know how it is. You can take a horse ride there. Take a nice walk. No swimming pool and all. Which is any ways fine. Both the times I got a very reasonable rate and a good discount as well. Hope it helps.

We have visited Ooty on September 2015. We stayed in Fortune Retreat for two nights. This resort is located 3 Km away from Ooty City. Though it is isolated from the main city, altitude of this location is higher than main city. Best place for budget accommodation. We utilized 4 bedroom independent villa with private campfire area. Area is very calm, experienced chillness at night, receptionist are very easy approachable Drawbacks:. No lights are available inside the resort premises. It was terrific experience for us to come out of our room during night time. It was difficult for us to reach hotel due to worst condition of the road. Lights inside the rooms were not worked properly, no proper sanitation in washrooms.

. This was the first time when I was in Ooty, and it was a superb experience on my holiday and I totally enjoyed but frankly I want to tell about the staff they are all just like a family member. It was really good, the way management responses were good and energetic, neat and tidy rooms. Overall it was excellent. I recommend this for the couple's nice hill spot. Apart from the food, that was a great taste and the room service was good. My Fiancee liked Gobi Manchurian, the food was mouth watering and the early morning time and the sunset that was really great, we want to visit this cottage one more time. The best thing of this Cottage is I just booked on call and I did not pay a single rupee in advance or deposit no one can do that hats off the Cottage Staff really such a trusting nature by the check out time.
First of all my sincere apology to all readers for the delay in writing this review . . We had been to Ooty on 12th September. 2013 to attend an international dog show. We stayed there up to 18th . This hotel is located only two and half km from main Chairing Cross circle. You need to climb steep gradient. Road is with pot holes which needs repair and hotel can not be blamed for it . They are having many cottages with their private tended garden with beautiful flowers and private parking place. We were surprised to see the room size. At least 20 feet x 15 feet room with 8x10 separate dining space. Well ventilated with good bed and furnishing. Very clean ample sized toilet with 24 HOURS HOT WATER. They are having Gas Geyser hence continuous hot water available . Food is absolutely excellent. We tried different cuisines. All are good. Very nice hygienic way of serving . Waiters and bearers are extremely helpful and polite . Standard amenities like TV, phone etc all are there . The best part is, they willingly served separate cooked food for our dog . Only drawback is you need to have your own transport . In totality, excellent staying place to enjoy the serenity of Ooty.
