The place stunk like anything. The rooms were mediocre . The advertisement was huge. The second day we spent at a different hotel. It was 10 times better at half the price. Stay away from this place. Room Stinks like a crack pot

The resort was a very wonderful place to relax. Its such a huge place to chill & hang out. Staying in the villas is just a dream come true. The breakfast was delicious with varieties to choose from. I wish i could have spend more time in the resort.

Though it is a good 40-minute drive outside of Periyar, you don't want to be anywhere else when you're here. We did go to the Tiger Reserve...
