Hi All,

Like the title says I never stayed at the property but just visited for lunch. I was shown a room and had to use influence to get a table in an empty restaurant. So here is my review:

Excellent bits first: Its a green oasis. Overgrown coffee plantation is a such a relaxing experience for any busy city family. The platoon seems to be well protected with electric fence and am sure looks like it had enough lighting for nights.

Good bits: The resort is built on stilts so gives you great elevation. Nice touches like a glass floor in the restaurant overlooking a stream is unique and nice.

Bad : The rooms are all non private basically two rooms in each cottage. So no privacy and noise from other rooms will surely keep your holiday in check!

Horrible: The food is pathetic and worse the resort claims it has only buffet in offer so if you are stuck here for a few days they god save you. And its also in the middle of nowhere so not like you can walk out for a meal.

Resort is fairly new but upkeep seems bad. The room i was shown had a broken railing. The restaurant I had food in had dirty napkins, no so well kept roofs etc. Attached some pics. We were not even served water though we requested multiple times.

The staff was not very friendly and made sure all of us felt unwelcome (maybe because we were not resident guests)

No Spa, No Pool. and only one sad restaurant without menu cards.

The resort claims it does not welcome children below 12 . but I saw toddlers crying away. My nephew and his younger cousins aged 8 & 11 have also visited the place. Looks like the rooms are flexible.

Staff could do with some training as luxury is not having to ask for water refills three times before you are heard...

We did the mistake of going to tamara for lunch with family. Well forty five minutes werspent in just figuring out how to be allowed to enter the restuarant to eat lunch. Great reception area but the parking area looks confusing. . We were there on diwali so they offered sweets vwry nice gesture.thoughtful. but then the tussle started. Were informed that we wont be allowed as we were not inhouse guests. The GM of the hotel met us but we felt he could have handled the whole situation more professional ly calmly politely and much better way.. anyways after a few phone calls we were given a table.. like outcasts made to sit in an outside area in an empty restuarant which later got occupied by only four more families.. not happy at all with the treatment. . The restaurant is beautifully landscaped. One small deck area is elevated many feet high. With a glass floor to look at a water bed running stream and amaxing landscape below. Really vow..
Food not upto the mark... mix of indian nd chinese is what we were forced to eat though we kept asking for alacarte which they refused to even acknowledge. . So buffet it was@1250/- plus raxes.. for coorg standards very very high.. in bangalore we pay far less and we get a huge spread here its half that..
We got cold sour tomato paste like soup with no breads no seasonibgs.. the fish was the only thing everyone enjoyed rest everything on the buffet spread missef out something or the other.. in a nutshell not worth the trouble at all..water had to be asked again and again inspite of having a kid on the table..
Service is bad..
Yes they didnt charge us for our nephew ..well here was another surprise. . The resort doesnt allow kids below 12years of age.. but we saw a 6mnth old moisy baby around ..
And all that fuss was all wasteas one month back my entire family visited ate and even saw three different rooms .. all witj two kids both much under 12 years.. so eutger the staff does what they need to.. which is entertain guests besides inhouse guests well when the GM Vijay is not around.. or he needs to relook at his policies.. bcause he definitely needs training on how to present a boutique property to guests specially when they say they have driven from bangalore to see the place...
Not a resort for people with knee pains and definitely not for oldies.. because they have one buggy and every riom is a long elevated walk..
Then they call themselves boutique but have two rooms literally stuk to each other. . No privacy at all.. thoughthe rooms are elrvated on a 30 feet types stilts .. with jungle like plantation all around u.. but the rooms notjing to write about.. ordinary.. with wood which is slippery no tubs in bathroom at least in room no 102..
The toiletries are normal. There is no special touch to the rooms.. though lot of money has been spent to buy a coffee plantation of 160 acres of area but not much ready plantation. . We were not shown much but we were told that spa is not ready. Pool is quite far from rooms .. they fo have pick up and drop services.. etc.
Will I stay at Tamara.. not sure.. tgere are better maintained properties in coorg .. like orange county and even Amanvana a small property but private cottages..

Perfect service and incredible fine dining at reasonable prices. While we did not stay at the resort, we enjoyed the food at the restaurant immensely. The service staff will ensure you are treated like royalty, it is very attentive without being overbearing. The food is creative and delicious, the plates are very well thought out with amazing fresh flavors.

I was here in the resort for a night. After the Storm festival happened in February, I partied in one of their tree top cottages. It was an awesome experience. The route to the resort itself was a great feel. The way they attend their clients was incredible (we reached by around 12.30 at night).

Though didnt had food from there, the experience with the room was awesome. The view even at night from the balcony was breath taking. The way the cottages, rooms are made is definitely worth mentioning and all are spacious.

Definitely will be staying here for a longer period soon, that attractive it is!!!
