We spent the Easter weekend in 2012 and were very impressed with the vastness of the coffee estate blossoming trees, chirping birds and peace and tranquility. Lot of things to do in the estate - fishing, trekking etc.
Cons: Quality of service. We were told it is a resort with all meals covered and were charged the resort rates(not a homestay) - Rs 15000 for 2 nights. There was no spread in the food - one non veg dish. Worst manager told us it is limited and they cannot serve beyond our portions. In fact were told that we can check out if we want more food. I guess they realized their mistake later and apologized but it really spoiled the trip - you can't be quarreling about food on day one of your vacation.
