"Imagine finding gold while digging a pit to plant a sapling! Or that moment when a wrong turn lead to a beautiful place and it was all worthwhile! A beautiful word was coined in 1754 by Sir Horace Walpole to denote such fortunate happenings - Serendipity!
Stumbling upon our properties too was pure serendipity, events that were integral in the course of lives of six generations of people in our family. Bringing all our heritage bungalows under one umbrella and naming it Serendipity was the right thing to do. We added the 'O' next to it to depict the circle of life!"

"We had a great vacation in and around Ooty. We enjoyed every moment of our stay both at Lymond House and Northern Hay. Even our visit to McIver at Coonoor for lunch was great. We liked the way your staff took care of each and every thing that we needed and made us feel at home. Your visit to meet us is appreciated. Coming across elephants and the majestic tiger on Northern Hay safari was the icing on the cake. We missed out on Amberina, we are sure we will come back for that."
“Northern Hay has given us the ultimate getaway from our city. The rich mix of English Style resorts nestled among the quiet coffee plantation is a dream. From the king size beds to the minute attention to detail, everything pleased us to the core. The safari was thrilling. The silence and the noise of the forest with such comfort of multi-cuisine food also added to the entire experience.”
"Had a nice and pleasant stay at your properties. Had an excellent and adventurous vacation. We especially loved the antique decor that adorns every corner of The Wilds at Northern Hay. Our stay at Devala too was beyond our expectations. The friendly and efficient staff made our trip more memorable."
