About the resort
The Queen of Hills retains her pristine pride, surrounded by the mountains with rivers and dams, forests and plantations vying for attention. The Nilgiris or the Blue Mountains form a part of the Western Ghats and the jungles around comprise of the rich bio diversity hot spot, the Nilgiri Biosphere. Even though the British discovered Ooty or Ootacamund and made it their summer getaway, the hill station and the areas around it have been around for ages, home to several indigenous tribes who have enriched the region with their cultures.
Taking into the quaint old world charm is the Club Mahindra Danish Villa, which is located right in the heart of the city and yet away from the hustle and bustle, lost in the lap of nature. Located 165 kms from Mysore and just 95 kms from Coimbatore, a holiday here takes you into a world of emerald tinged lakes and forests.
Go for long walks, listen to the birds, camp under the stars, cross rivers knee deep in water, sip a hot cup of tea, watch the planters at work, soak in the beauty of the flowers, get wrapped in the mist, drive through the little hill stations or just become a kid all over again and take the toy train up the shola forests. You cannot just holiday once in the Queen of Hills, it is a destination that will beckon you again and again.
