Lovely place to stay. The views from the room are beautiful. Charles is a wonderful person to talk with. He goes that extra mile to make his guests comfortable. His recommendations to visit places around was quite helpful. The food at the kitchen was homely. Babu , Madesh and Joseph treated guests with all smiles. The walk close to the place to Lamb's rock was simply superb. Thanks for the memorable experience Charles. Will definitely be back.
A lovely stay with Childhood friends and their spouses. Never felt the need to step out from the Resort, when you are being looked after Mr Charles the Host and owner. Mr Charles network and knowledge about Coonoor and his experience as a Planter were what made our stay blissful. Not to forget his planning of what he was going to serve us for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. If you are Foodie , this should be on your bucket list. Our special thanks to his ever helpful smiling staff.
The experience of De Rock begins with meeting Charles, our gracious host. From the moment we entered the place to ask for an impromptu booking to the moment we signed out - Charles was all consideration and solicitous care. he not only ensured that we had a great stay at his place, but he also arranged for all our sightseeing trips, personally instructing the drivers on where to stop and what points to visit tailoring the entire trip to the convenience of my elderly parents. He also arranged for a very special evening program to mark the 50th anniversary of my parents - complete with a cake, music and special dinner. The next night the celebrations continued with a bonfire and storytelling and songs. The rooms are all spacious and well maintained. Each room has a unique decor and view. Every room is an experience not to be missed. The staff is very helpful and courteous especially Emanuel and Babu. A stay at De rock is not complete without a cozy chat with Charles. He's extremely busy, but if you can, do get him to tell you the anecdotes about the place. Hint: every rock, every stone, every nook in the resort has a story behind it and they carry personal meaning and significance. All in all, it was this that elevated the stay from a holiday to a personal experience for us.…
What a great experience. Stayed here for two nights with my friends in their big wooden cottage. Great food and the owner is a gem of a person. Very flexible as long as you are not being too loud. Will do his best to meet all your requests. Wonderful wonderful place. Food was also very good and they can make it according to your specifications.
The DeRock Jungle resort was not a good experience for us. Rather, it turned out to be a blemish in our otherwise pleasant vacation in Ooty. The rooms were small and wreaked of a drainage stench. Their toilets were not very clean either. The least they could have done was provide for hot water but alas, they did not have geysers either. Their food was average and tea, watery. The power was deliberately turned off at 4 am onwards to save their electricity costs. Although their staff was courteous, their resort's lack of basic amenities more than offset their hospitality. I would not recommend this resort for your stay.
