“Awesome through and through!!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Dropped into this resort upon a friend's recommendation and had an amazing stay. We checked in at 6 in the evening and we were shown to our 'standard room' (A big bungalow called 'The Four Gables'). As it was getting dark, there weren't any activities to do as it was more of an 'all outdoor fun' place and we settled down after dinner. There are no TV/Internet connection or much of phone range so make sure you carry your entertainment devices just in case you don't get bored.

The rooms are great (2 huge bedrooms) 1 kitchen, 2 baths (again huge) with heater facility. All very clean and spick and span.

The next day all the fun started. After being served with a good breakfast (simple spread, more of common choice, but in enough quantity), we were taken for trekking, off-roading, boating, a walk around the rose-garden, and the viewpoints. We returned to an awesome south Indian lunch.

The highlights of this trip had to be the off-roading and the food. Both were outstanding to say the least. Not taking away credit from the rest, but just mentioning :D

Make sure you go with a group of people (5 min) to enjoy this place to the whole. Away from the city, very very quiet, pleasantly cold at certain months of the year (otherwise rainy). (We visited the place during March, so it was the off-season. During the rainy season, just take care not to come across any leeches)

I heard that they entertain you with campfire, music and barbecue if you have a bigger group.

And not to miss out on the mention, the staff were excellent. Very helping and very friendly.

Room Tip: Any room would do. But if you're with a larger group, they might put you in the Four Gables. If...

I had originally booked for Woodpecker suite for August 14th 2013 and had transferred an advance of Rs.4000. But due to heavy rains/landslide in Idukki district i wanted to cancel the trip. But the proprietor Mr. Rashid said that he could extend the monsoon offer till November of that year and he will refund my advance in case i am not able to make by then. But when i tried to reach them in November to cancel the booking, there has been no response at all. I had sent several mails but has been in vain.

The place is excellent for who enjoy the nature. You don't have TV in the room which i stayed. So enjoy your timing by walking around, talking and other activities. Its calm and you have lot of privacy. We never had a feeling of the resort, we felt as if we are in any known person's home. The food was excellent. The staff's support and cooperation was good and require a special mention. I surely recommend you can visit Vagamon heights. One suggestion, you should go as a group then it will be more fun.

Room Tip: You have single room cottage or double room cottage which i will recommend because it gives a feeli...

This property has a lot of indoor activities like boating, fishing (though we did not catch a single fish in an hour !), 4X4 offroading etc, to keep you busy throughout the day.

The food was good and sufficient; but limited in variety.

The room ambiance was just about average. It can be improved.

One can go for long walks within the property...

Room Tip: There are many types of rooms to select depending on group size. Also, the rooms closer to the dinin...

One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in my life. Yes!!!

Myself, along with my husband and 2 year old son had been to Vagamon heights last week to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. It was a 300 acre estate surrounded with greenery.

We were accommodated at Woodpecker top. The scenic view was amazing from the cottage. We stayed there for 2 nights and 3 days. Being a road less traveled, it was a serene place. As promised in their website, they offered boating in their private lake and jeep safari during our stay.

Food was tasty and hygienic too. Especially in a state where good vegetarian food is hard to get, they offered very tasty vegetarian food.

Overall a heavenly experience. A must visit for nature lovers...We are sure to visit the place again...

Room Tip: Go for woodpecker top. You can view nature at its best...
