Ooty ~ An official traveler’s experience

Ooty is one of the most popular hill stations is South India. Located in the Nilgiri hills, it is popular for pleasant weather and natural beauty. All year round, tourists visit this destination, as a result of which a wide variety of holiday accommodations are available here.

I visited Ooty not on a holiday like scores of other do, but as an official traveler, i.e., on an office field trip and had an enjoyable time amidst the amazing views of Nilgiris. The experience of traveling and staying in this popular hill station was both convenient & pleasant, thanks to the online hotel bookings facility by Make My Trip India. It so happened that we got to know 2 days advance about the impending trip and having very less time to arrange the accommodation we looked into the online resource available on Hotels in Ooty.  One of my colleagues who had booked hotels through Make my Trip earlier suggested we looked into the options available on this website, as they have some great deals. We found a wide range of Ooty Hotels on the Make My Trip site with different costs and facilities. As we planned to stay for a longer period of time and had field work, we thought it best to look for basic but clean Budget hotels in Ooty. However, both I and my colleagues were tempted to book something better looking at the low prices being offered by Make My Trip on 5 Star hotels in Ooty.

Anyways, we decided to book Lakeview Hotel Ooty , which was one of the  largest and most exclusive hill resort there. Arriving at Otty and checking into the hotel, we loved the location of the hotel, being on terraced slopes of a hill and still within the market square.

Our work took us all over the Ooty town, neighboring towns & villages and the Mudumalai National Park. Visiting any destination on work trip is a different experience and more so when its field work, the lesser known places and the off the beaten track routes are usually the high points of such a travel. In our case, driving down the Mudumalai National Park in the evening was one such thrilling experience, as we spotted wild bison, elephant hers and deers at almost touching distance from our car. It was a wonderful 10 days, the stay made more pleasurable by the superb services at the hotel. Each day, after a tiring walk all around town, we came back to superb hospitality of the hotel staff. The room service in particular was very prompt and at the end of any tiring work day, any one on the field can tell you what a boon it is!!

I have become a great believer is booking hotels via online after my Ooty hotel booking experience. If you are planning a holiday (or work travel) and has very short time to book hotels, booking hotels online is the best way to ensure you have a hassle free stay at your destination.

  1. Glad to hear that you had a great time in Ooty when you visited. I have been there once long back, as a little kid, hence don't remember much from that trip now.
