Our best Holiday time spent in Avalance(Ooty), This place is fantastic scenic place a little away(23 Kms-60 Mins)from Ooty. We preferred to drive down to this place. Post reaching Emerald Village at the 5/34 hairpin bend we need to watch out for Destiny Farmstay(white boards-Need to be be watchful which we will miss out easily)...We will reach the parking lot of the Destiny Farmstay and from there a Miitary truck will take us to the destination(20 mins) coz the road post that is a roller coaster.

Had one of the best experiences visiting Destiny last week. The location is prime and away from all the clutter. The resort services are top notch and people are very friendly. I traveled with my daughter and each time the chef made special food for her palette and did not even charge us for that. The food was tasty and with good variety. We loved the evening barbecue. Rooms were clean and people we very helpful.

HOSPITALITY AT ITS BEST

Stayed at this resort for 5d/4n, what to say ...... this has been the best ever holiday.
MAHALAKSHMI ( GRE) called us many times before check-in to guide us to resort. checking in was very quick and easy with a cup of awesome lemon tea. they explained all the activities available( both free and chargeable )
we were allotted room within 5 mins of reaching the resort which was good after a lot of travel.
we stayed at room no 27 (Robinson Crusoe ). view from the room was spellbinding. room was clean, well laid out, rustic, bathroom was clean spacious, modern.
initially, we were skeptical about staying for four days in this resort without going for an outing , but that turned out to be the best decision ever because there was a lot of in campus activities(non-chargeable ) like fishing, short trekking, farm visit, horse riding, diary visit. short morning trek to Sundance cottage was the best. thanks to BIKAS young and energetic Activity staff who made our stay and our daily trek a memorable one
every staff in the resort right from the gardener , resort, manager, farm manager, stable manager, were very warm and they made us feel at home
The only thing that was mediocre was their food, not in the sense that it was bad, but for the amount they charge you it could be even better , we gave our feedback abt food, from very next meal chef .subramani made sure we were happy abt the food and he tried his level best.
fishing in the pond was also very much fun.
overall staff at destiny( MAHALAKSHMI, BIKAS, SUBHAM, ABU , PRADIP, HOUSEKEEPING STAFF,) showed us what real hospitality is ,
Mahalakshmi and Bikas are valuable assets to the littlearth group.
they even called us next day after checkout to ensure our safe journey.
thank u destiny for the great hospitality
Gem of a place in India!

This place was the best thing we did in Ooty. About 1 and half hours from the city, Destiny farmstay is nothing short of top class. With reasonable prices, we too took two rooms for two nights but this is no ordinary resort. There are no Tv's and wifi in the rooms. It is highly recommended to leave your busy life behind and shut yourself into the beautiful views, great spa and countless outdoor and indoor activities to keep yourself surprisingly occupied. They grow their vegetable and use produce from their poultry farm to give you unparalleled fresh and tasty meals at the restaurant. Shubham who is the event manager there will hook you up with all the activities available to keep everyone in the family busy and was always around to look after us. The views and weather is spectacular and the rooms are cozy. Hot water was available from 6-10 AM and PM without disappointment. They have a cow shed with healthy cows, poultry farm, horse stables and a few sheep. The milk and eggs are used at the restaurant and are fresh as ever. I must warn you that you will need to park your car at the farmstay parking and take an extremely and I repeat an extremely bumpy road about 2 km to the resort on the resort truck which can be quite uncomfortable if the driver is fast. But all this is forgotten once you immerse into the beautiful nature and indulge yourself with the organic tasty food. Highly recommended for a rejuvenating stay.
