1.2km from Mahalingapuram Bus StopWe had a chance to stay at "The Dense" on a family trip for a couple of days. I had earlier searching extensively on TopSlip resorts found this out through Google and immediately saw the highly rated reviews on Tripadvisor and definitely it didn't disappoint. This looked more serene from the photos than the rest of the pack, so booked the same. let me start with pro's and then cover the areas of improvements: 1. This place is the last one before the Topslip check post, and has only 4 cottages, so Serenity and privacy assured this way. There was some good rains when we visited and practically we had the whole resort for ourselves. (also refer room tips in that section). 2. Besides the privacy, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Food, its absolutely delicious, no second thoughts on that, right from the breakfast, lunch to dinner it was our choice and the cook ***aged to impress us each time. 3. It was absolutely stunning in the rain, the pool and the AV Theatre room was good, there were few swings for the kids. They also have cycles. 4. The service provided by Mr.Anand and the cook Mr.Nepal was really great, they catered to our special food needs for our kid and i never saw a scorn on their faces, even for a minute. There are some areas where there could be improvement, there is no online (through website booking) to this place. So i guess booking through Credit card is a problem. I felt it was slightly overpriced (when compared to nearby resorts) but I think the food was worth it. The pool was a standard 4ft one, there was no kids partition, so the kids couldnt enjoy, it would have been better if there was one. The food service was late (the elderly in the group was feeling bit hungry)but i guess there was only one cook and he definitely made it up with its taste. Lastly for those with kids, I would recommend you take some appropriate insect repellants as this is amidst lot of trees. Some of the restrooms were more modern than the rest, one of my gripe was the heater was very small and if you want a good hot shower you would be in bad luck. (though you have hot water). The cell signal is fine around the reception area rooms, but none in C2 and C4 cottages. (but that should be fine to unwind your self) Room Tips: There are 4 cottages and none has breathtaking views but good garden views. C1 is near reception and is big and good restrooms. C2 is small but fine and serene. C3 is big but near generators (so noisy) and without any views. C4 is off the corner and most private and size was bigger then C2.
