Red Hills Nature Resort

by Vijay & Bhanumati

The best of the Nilgiris

Ooty, Tamil Nadu
Red Hills Nature Resort

Story

Vijay and Bhanumati live on this property along with their son Vishanth and their five dogs. At 7500 feet above sea level, Red Hills overlooks the emerald lake in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Nilgiri range. The 150-year-old original structure was renovated and first inhabited by the family for a few years before the idea of a homestay emerged sometime in 2006. This plantation farm is on the far end of the Nilgiris on the border with Kerala.
Their cook Balkrishna stirs up very enjoyable local recipes and an evening high tea is best relished with the biscuits and cookies baked in-house. Mobile coverage is limited and the feeling of being disconnected in this exclusive location is what people have been coming here for over the last decade. The organic farm managed by their son, Vishanth provides the veggies, and the meals are simple but very homely and tasteful. Stay with Red Hills to enjoy the hosts' warm hospitality and possibly the best views of the Nilgiris.
