The experience was enchanting. My safety was the last of my concerns because of the friendly staff and a lovely dog.
The washrooms are well maintained.
The owner, Muthanna, frequently visited the camping site to ensure we were having a great time.
We also had a lovely campfire organised for us, under the starry sky which is certain to have a lasting impression on our lives.
The food served was exemplary.
The pudding was absolutely delicious.
It is also budget friendly.
Overall, the place is a must visit for anyone who wants a get away destination to destress. T
Note: This review is only for the camping stay at Maday Holidays
-Camping under the open skies
-Bonfire @ night (barbeque also available)
-Fresh off the branch supply of guavas ;)
-Activities: Zip lining, trekking(beware of leeches), jeep tour of the estate included in the package
-Basic but delicious food and mouth watering Dessert
-very basic amenities, do not expect luxurious setup
-not suitable for small children or elderly people
Suggestions- bring your own water bottles if you prefer so, carry supplies of snacks etc as the place doesn't have a market close by, keep mosquito repellent, powerbanks, a torch handy in case of electricity cut and to charge phones, which you may want to use for clicking pictures or music, as there is not much other use possible - no network, a blessing rather.
Maday was the best part of our trip. Two brothers are managing these camps and they are really good. First they have not taken money from us (even i have not paid advance while booking stay as well) and they told they are not doing all these for money, we really got shocked at that time, but slowly we understood that they are very passionate on these nature camps after staying there for 2 days. Treatment was awesome, guys supporting them over there are also cool, 2 dogs over there are also very cool, they have followed us while we were trekking like guards. They have arranged all the facilities properly, even they have provided barbecue setup for us immediately once we asked them. Good place to stay, it is very cool and pleasant. Please go and have fun, you will not regret on your decision, it will be the best experience i believe.
We have visited this place in Sep 2015 . We are a group of 6 friends with a couple of toddlers. So, this review is applicable to the guest house , but not the camp.
- The stay is 7kms from Madakeri right on the main highway.
- Rooms are spacious and value for money.Bathrooms are good. Hot water is available all the time.
- Facilities are OK for single travellers or friends groups .
- Two friendly dogs for pet lovers
- The walk towards the stream is beautiful and the camping site is good.
- The rooms are not clean, not maintained well. The stairs to the first floor are slippery (when it rains) and the lighting in the whole place is below par. just one 40 watt bulb for one room. the bed linen is not clean .
- stairs and rooms are not safe for toddlers as the railings are not adequate.
- No full time room service or any such facilities.
- The rooms are facing the highway (next to highway actually) and there is no view at all.
I have been to Coorg 4 times, with different groups; and every time we went, we have stayed at the Maday Estate Homestay. Each trip has had a different, unique experience. The Bopanna family hospitality has been great and we are very good friends now (By the way, this is no "paid review"!).
First, this is a homestay and not a luxury resort. So, the folks visiting the place have to expect certain shortcomings anyway. Moreover, the place is in a remote location. So, again, infrastructure would be a bit lacking. Finally, this is Coorg - not a metropolitan city. So, life as a tourist will be rugged. For people who would rather have luxury, Orange County is perhaps where they need to head to.
The homestay is cosy, huge and also has a small stream at the back. Pretty laid back, Sai and team also provide trekking trips. The food is good and the hosts do things out of their way to satisfy the guests. We enjoyed the holiday - be it 15 members of 45!
Due to the location, there are constant power cuts and we did not have cell phone signal. But, that could be pardoned!
The bath facilities were adequate and catered to the huge crowd adequately well.
The homestay is a great place for youngsters, as older people would find it difficult getting around, unless they choose to stay in the main house at the front of the property.
It is a great value for money!
