This hotel has very beautiful location and surrounded by trees and greenery. Hotel is around 2-3 kms away from the town. However, rooms are not maintained properly and it doesnt give pleasant feel. Support staff is also not that cooperative. Hotel provides for internet facility on demand and can also arrange boating, jungle safari or live kathakali performance but may... More

The accommodation is cottage type arranged on steep hill slope. Aged people may face difficulty in hiking to the cottages located at higher elevation. The cottages are dimly lit, well furnished but... More

This hotel is far off from the city whereas there are so many hotels available just near to tiger reserve gate. The hotel has a very good infrastructure but very poorly maintained & that is why you do not feel like staying here although the prices are not less. For a double room for one night (check in on 09Nov... More

The ideal place to go if you are looking for relaxation in a natural setting. The rooms and restaurant provide arguably the best views in Thekkady. Its about a mile out of town- but on the way into the town so you don't have to go out of your way to find it. This was a bonus rather than a... More
