“Nice but didn't live up to high expectations.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and were upgraded to a villa from a single room at no extra cost - very generous. Should caveat this review with the fact that we went off season so no doubt it's normally a bit more vibrant.

The positives:
- lovely and informative tour of the farm
- friendly and helpful staff, especially Priya, who went to great lengths to arrange a trip for us, very appreciated.
- communicative via emails prior to the stay, very useful for planning
- comfy and clean room with wifi and cable tv for the evenings

Suggestions for improvement:
- food was average (microwaved one night) and having a tv blaring out when we were eating was not that pleasant
- we felt there was a discrepancy between the website and reality; the impression online is of a very large estate that we could have walked around all day whereas to go hiking we had to drive for a good while. Again this could be due to the season, not sure.
- please put cushions on the sofa and chairs, they are really uncomfy!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay but our expectations were so high from reviews/website/relative premium cost that we were perhaps always going to be a little disappointed

BLOOMS-GREEN-FARM, Owner at Blooms Green Farm, responded to this review, 4 May 2014
Thank you for sparing time to write review in Trip Advisor.
We have taken immediate steps to correct our mistakes pointed out:-
1. TV sound – Though we are unable to stop other guests viewing the TV in the dining hall, we have kept a notice beside to keep the volume low. As the sitting area and dining area have some space in between, we hope this will serve the purpose in future. More over, we have advised our staffs to have an eye on this when guests are dining and watching TV at the same time.
2. Microwaved food – I believe this point was a misunderstanding. When there are more guests, we have to keep Chappathi and several items ready 1-2 hours before serving time. All gravy items are kept on ‘Chef & Dish’ steel trays over hot water with flame under. Dry items are microwaved just before serving.
3. As per the website data, the extent shown is 15 acre organic farm and in reality it is 17 acres. I believe you are not familiar with the unit ‘acre’ and more used to Yard and Hectare units. However, we are sorry to disappoint you as you expected a large area similar to the big tea estates in Wayanad.
Next time when you visit India, please drop in and we will take you to our ‘rare destination camp site’ in North Wayanad, which is a 41 acre property with a stream boundary. Would sincerely appreciate if you could respond to my views too.
Best regards,
Johny & Priya.

We went there as a part of our BOD Meet, nice ambiance, helpful staff, decent food. Only minus point was that the power got cut often during our meeting and that was bit annoying. Rooms and all were pretty neat, tidy and well maintained, enjoyed the organic farm and the kennel. I enjoyed it to the full. Highly recommended.

"Home away form home!!!" - These are strong words and i very rarely use them in my reviews...
But for Blooms green farm ... I do not have any hesitation in using it...

The hospitality and service is the one that sets it apart.. They are professional and yet polite...
Kidos to the whole team yet Priya needs a special mention as she took care of everything right from booking...

The cottage seeina [3 bedroom] that we stayed was clean and really spacious.
They have around 5 or 6 cottages in the same property but all of them are well spread and have their own privacy.

Food was really homely and the buffet for lunch and dinner was really yummy!!!

There is a shuttle court that is getting ready too... It will help out to burn few calories.

Was little disappointed to know that the elephant rides is only seasonal and not available at all times.

The little ones will love the farm visit. You can also purchase their farm products from the reception.

The best part is the price at which all this come at... Hats off to the outstanding work ...

Room Tip: I am not sure on the interior or the location of the other cottages... but i would prefer cottage se...

We where at Blooms Green Farm for two days on 1st and 2nd of April on our Wayanad trip. What I would like to write on the stay at Blooms is the way they treated. For me and my wife and kids, the hospitality has no words..we have that relation established..and the cleanliness..food..air..all are top class and Fresh..I personaly recommend Blooms to all.

Room Tip: All villas are best...but one near the pool is better

The most striking feature of Blooms is the warmth and hospitality. The whole place is GREEEEEN! . Lovely little cottages nestled in a verdant green expanse, set on rambling, gentle slopes, with coffee and pepper and clove and nutmeg trees. A lovely organic kitchen garden, complete with fruit trees such as papaya, banana, and mango and jack, that feeds the guests. Free range poultry and other meats for the non-vegetarian guests. A quiet getaway from the hectic life in the city. Very reasonably priced rooms, tasty, home cooked meals, and a smiling, ever present, helpful staff.

My visit to Green Bloom was in connection with the Kabani Art Fest, organised by Chitra Iyer to support the SEW( Society for Elephant Welfare ). As the part of the programme, where we choose this place to create our work of art, the ambience, the nature, the homely food, the greenery were really mind blowing. The sounds of the nature, the wind, the rain, the sunshine all had the power to rejuvanate your innate powers.The 8 artists in our team had a wonderful time together, sharing the oneness with nature. A special thanks to Josettans special delicious homely food and the entire staff for that welcoming smiles...... It is a very unique place to move out form the daily routine and enjoy with our beloved ones. To feel oneness with nature...its the hallmark of Green Blooms....
