My Wife and I stopped here for a massage. We were told a price and then there was 20% added to it for tax. Then pressure applied to pay cash and avoid the tax. At 3000rupees per massage we were expecting something special.....it was not! In my case the masseur spent the whole of the massages either asking how good...

Thekkady place is worth to see. However it's very small city and little crowded during peak seasons, but very pleasant surrounding of deep forest, lakes and hills. Rangerwood location is near the Forest. From room , you can see the forest view. Sometime if you are lucky you can see deer and some wild animals. Hotel ambience is good and...

The staff seemed friendly enough to me. ( people usually are, if you are prepared to make an effort ?) The bathroom was basic, but the...

The rooms are clean, large and comfortable, but nothing flash. Hot water can be erratic. The best thing is the wonderful view of nature from the big windows, including in the bathroom, and the balcony. Great for relaxing and watching the birdlife. Breakfast is good and the staff are nice. The pool is in a rather dreary courtyard but is...

We were to stay in the hotel for just one night as transients and this was made evident by the receptionist who didnt want to share any local details as he insisted that since it was just a one night halt stay so we didnt have time. On being asked about the Kathakali and Kalaripaytu shows he told me that...

The management is more interested in the Ayurvedic massage and related stuff. The rooms are dark and furniture is all wooden from old style but too much for the rooms. Rooms are spacious. Balconies are plus point which open on to the wilds where we could see 4 Dears in the night which we otherwise could not see during the...
