Kurumba Village Resort
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Coonoor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2010

If you want to have a getaway from your routine life, just lay down relax and just laze around, this hotel is really a great place. I had gone with my parents, and my brother. The cottage was quite roomy to hold four people. The bathrooms were good with the tub overlooking the nilgris. The resort is situated in the midst of hills surrounded by trees bearing exotic spices. The food was great with a good variety in veg and non- veg.

However, you need a car at your disposal to reach the place or move around. The nearest place for sight seeing is Kunoor which is a good 45 minutes of drive away. And to reach Ooty and come back, it takes a whole day. If you want to attach some serious sightseeing with the trip, this resort is a clear no- go.

An awesome experience. The best part that I appreciate is that there was no room service...making it mandatory to walk down to the restaurant (on a machaan). It's a truly rewarding experience walking through the in the resort - a spice plantation. My 3 yr old daughter was too busy picking cloves & nutmeg fruits from the resort floor. Also a bunch of monkeys appeared at the restaurant at breakfast time...a memorable experience... Very well equipped with swimming pool and games rooms...we had a ball of a time....completely cut-off from all phone calls etc with no network within the resort premises...a true getaway...the buffet spread was an amazing range to choose from...

a hidden gem. literally !! the location is such that from the highway you can't make out that there is such a beautiful resort here. You go down a small tricky road from the highway but it is so well surrounded by the forest that though it is quite close to the highway you can't hear a sound of any vehicle pasing by. the rooms are very spacious and though they are quite simple very nicely done up. the restuarant is beautifully located and the service at the restaurant was amazing. the food was equally delicious. The small swimming pool also is nicely located. Saw hornbills, a flying lizard, and the the first time Fireflies. if you are ever thinking of going to Coonor this is one place you should not miss though Coonor has some other good hotels too.

I have to mention that we were traveling with our 6 yrs old son and 8-month old baby and our stay was very comfortable.

The pluses are, good food, good service, excellent view from the rooms (each balcony opens out into the forests/streams/mountains), definitely recommended for a getaway from city life for a couple of days.

The things to be aware of is that all the other locations coonoor / ooty / mettupalayam are atleast 1 to 2hrs drive. Quite remote in the middle of the Jungle and you have nothing to see. THis resorts is 1 hr drive from Coonoor. You have to depend or hotel taxis or you should have your own vehicle. Hotel cab is expensive.

Older couples Pls mind - Hotel is constructed on a valley so you have to climb lot of steps to reach the resuarant each time.Pls take care if you are taking your parents.
Activity center is ok for kids..

The menu is good and the restuarant buffet is lovely with a huge variety of food. View from resturant is great.

Natural pools is nice overlooking the mountain and valley, there is nothing within walking distance from resorts. They take you on a morning trek for 2-3 hrs. Dec to May is probably is the the best time to go although we were fortunate to still have some rains. Internet and mobile phones may not work well. So this is an ideal place for those wanting to get away from the rest of the world for a weekend.

Overall the stay was wonderful and I would recommend this place for everyone.

A nice place with beautiful surroundings.Its on 3rd and 4th hair pin bend so a little bit difficult to get if you are there for first time. Staff is really helpful and friendly. food is prepared using spices grown in there own lawn, giving the food the actual taste of ooty. A true place for a couple as the cottages are little far apart.
