Excellent place to visit. A place well maintained with great country food prepared by the cook. Mr. Ravi -the manager is very supportive. View point around 4 Kms is a must watch along with Madammakulam

It was just an awesome location. We need to travel off the road for some kms. That itself is one of its kind. You feel like you are alone in this world. Food was good. Bungalow is superb. You have a natural swimming pool, where water is coming from springs. Feel the beauty of nature. Excellent destination to enjoy your...

Booking: Through tripadvisor or direct contact of Mr.Ravi, the manager of the resort. Details available at the hotel's website. Actually, they have two properties (palace and plantation) of which we booked and stayed at the Palace resort. (Opt for this campus as it has its own natural stream with pool and small waterfalls). Once booked, Mr.Ravi will correspond all the...

Unexpectedly treacherous off road drive to the hill top. Bungalow was quaint and beautiful, but the new management was not prepared for guests. We were booked there for 3 nights (Agoda double booked us and refused to fix the problem or refund us) as a result we had only 1 night there and no where to go and no way...

It was an awesome weekend that we had. Urumbi Hill Palace is something every nature lover should explore. Built in the start of 1900's, this resort started functioning a decade ago it seems. The property is well maintained with some great garden, varandah's, seating arrangements, accomodation spaces etc. Bathroom facilities and beds were too good, and they served nice food...

“If you like to have a sleep with the sounds of a water falls prefer rooms near water falls. (Rs. 3000/4000), Its enough for a small family. If you like to have a mountain valley view and sun set view you can opt for the bigger room which (Rs. 6500/-), it can accommodate at least 5-6 people and its like a Palace. Pls wake up before 6.00 AM and have the enchanting view of the mountain valley filled up with whites clouds...., words cannot explain the experience.”
