The beauty of Southern India had left such a deep impression in my heart, that I want to go certain places again and again. So during Chinese new year holidays in Singapore, we decided to absorb ourselves in this beautiful memory again. So we planned a trip to meet our friends in Bangalore, then head to head to Ooty, and finally culminating the trip in Goa. Being wildlife lovers, we also added in our itinerary to visit our favorite wildlife resorts. I will later write another post for that.
Ooty is a charming little hill station which helps to get respite from Bangalore heat. During our visit, we came across a charming isolated gem called Destiny Farmstay. And I dedicate this post just to tell how much inner peace we experienced during our stay in this farmstay.
Situated across the pleasant Lake emerald, majestic hills and enchanting Niligiri forest, this farmstay is sure to make your eyes happy.
The farm stay offers many activities which are bound to keep the kids happy. Kids can engage in learning about horses, cattle, farming or playing with rabbits, dogs, sheep etc.
They also offer to take you for a nature walk in nearby reserves. We wanted to take a property tour with a horse ride. They have beautiful and healthy troop of horses.
At night they had organized bonfire and Karaoke singing which was fun. All the guys were being pushed to sing romantic songs for their beloved. You have an option to go for BBQ while enjoying the bonfire.
I would recommend spending one night in this farm stay if you are planning a trip to Ooty. More than one night is upon your personal choice since the farm stay being on the outskirts of Ooty, you will feel confined. One more thing to add would be that they also offer camping near the Emerald lake. Those who are interested to spend a night in tents under the stars, the farm stay provides you the amenities. More details can be found on their website here.
Driving directions : Once you start from Ooty, taking leverage of advanced technology, please follow Google Map instructions. Surely have to cross 2-3 villages, some broken roads, finally the emerald dam in order to reach the farmstay.
Rooms : All the rooms are big in size. We chose a standard one, and we got splendid view and a big space.
