The location is really good and staff are courteous. Perfect place to retire for few days if you want to be close to nature and city traffic has driven you mad. Only problem is commutation; if you don't have a vehicle of your own, it leaves you to the mercy of taxi drivers who charge you exorbitantly. The worst part is taxi booking is done through hotel and they oblige to the whims of drivers. Sadly, customers without vehicle have no other go as they are trapped in an isolated place.
Stay with property was very comfortable. Surrounding was very good view around was very beautiful. Room alloted was large and well maintained. Dining was awesome. Service and staff was perfect at the work. I will definitely recommend to others.
Staff were well trained with good knowledge. Room was spacious with all the facilities. Food was pretty good in taste. The location was good near the hotel.
Enjoyed my vacation stay in this property. It is located a bit high for comfort but the hotel ambiance is good. My room was very decent. The room service did an appreciative job, also the food served was tasty. This is an above average property.
Access- We went from B'lore followed GPS, road are good until we entered Bandipur National park, they are narrower with pits and hole, it continues till resort. Reached Masinagudi town then for directions to resort asked locals,and also called resort guys. Parking- You can park your vehicle near your room in open. Staff- Cooperative and helpful. Nearby attractions- 1.One hill behind the resort with temple. Short trek to hill is quite a experience. 2.Ooty is around 30 kms from resort we took Coimbatore Ooty Gundelpet Hwy which has lot of hairpin bends, took us arnd an hr but while coming back we drove around 69 kms which took 2.5 hrs via Gudalur (longer conventional route) as the previous route was made one way due to heavy traffic (it was long weekend). Do not drive in evening or night due to lack of street lights in forest and rough roads. Safety- Resort is safe. Food- Food quality at resort is good but not much options to choose from. Room- Average, had TV and Fridge. No electric kettle for tea/cooffee, no locker. Ambiance- The resort is good place for you to spend quality time with family away from crowd and pollution. Resort has got beautiful scenic view thus provides good shooting site,so be camera ready:) Overall as a couple, we had quite relaxing and nice experience.

First thing first: Staying at Monarch was on my bucket-list, to stay once in life at a hotel owned by 'THE MITHUN CHKRAVARTHY"(bollywood superstar) :D , So staying here was no brainer for us. Since Mithun Da was the selling point for me here, expected nothing from the property but i was delightfully surprised, OH ! it is a lovely resort, tucked in small corner of the Madhumalai forest on the Foot-hill of Nilgiri Range. They have different kind of accommodations for different kind of needs. We were a group of 4 adult and an 8 year old mayhem(kid) so we took the BUNGALOW, it had two plush rooms, two bathrooms , two sit out and a huge lawn to chill, drink and have fun. We were there on 30th December 2016, so that feeling of "year is going by and we need to trouble our liver the most"was dominant.. and here stage set was so inviting that we chose that evening to do nothing but to sit out in open, under billion stars, Niligiri at back drop, table set with candle and himachali folk music playing on pod... and it is when i realized that old monk bottle when makes a sound, when you unscrew it and the sound says "tidik.. it awesome" Yes, the Resort is awesome, staff very courteous, special mention to Mr. Durai(Manager) who is working with this property for last 22 years, is treat to talk to. He had some amazing jungle stories and also helped us in booking morning jungle safari. Food: Buffet, well spread and LIP Smacking Reaching here : FUN DRIVE So, long and short of the story is .. Pack your bags and head to Monarch Safari !! It is super cool. one can ask me more: insta profile for more pics it is @ "Collared Hippie"
An absolutely fantastic property and staff.. but marred by poor approach and lack of maintenance.. apparently rains have failed and the greenery was missing. lighting in the area was poor and going to the dining area after dusk was tricky.The security guard was ever helpful with his torchlight, but may have found it difficult to escort all guests. The food menu lacked imagination and could have been better. Staff very courteous..being a jungle type of a resort, they should have information available for the guests that we could do there. The rooms were spacious and good, but TV channels a disppointment
The place is rather out of the way and so ideal for getaway. There are no sign boards pointing to the location, since , there are restrictions by forest department. Google maps was accurate though. The manager Mr.Durai was extremely accomodative and gave us wonderful support and advise on daily activities. The food was awesome and the staff were pleasant and quick to rectify any issues. The rooms were all comfortable though the lighting is very low. would help to have good lighting in bathrooms and dressing area. Jungle safari was organised by the manager on our request and it was very satisfying. Though I have seen reviews that it sometimes a waste of time. We were driven by jeeps ( 6 to7 per vehicle) and managed to see Elephants, peacocks, Sambhar, boars, Spotted deer, Langurs etc. The turnaround point was a dam with nice photo oppurtunities.
This is good property, nice location , large area, good views, good food, friendly staff. But the property badly needs maintenance, none of the lawns are done and in little unclean, many structures require maintenance, you only get a little attention once you check in. Also the lightings in the room are very poor. Simply put it was a great property now falling in its own weight die to the lack of maintenance. There is a lot of scope for improvement. Also for the price that is charged, what you get is average.
One of the most peaceful and beautiful resort in Masinagudi. We stayed in Machans and it was spacious for 3. Clean and neat bathrooms. Food was amazing. We had all our three meals there and was spicy which was good for the cold climate that prevailed there. You will find space for outdoor activities and games as well as indoor games such as Foosball, Table Tennis and Billiards. You will also get a tree top meeting space for 30 members for some events to conduct. Overall a memorable stay.
