I have to emphasize, the service was outstanding. Alan went out of his way to accommodate my needs during these COVID-19 days, always maintaining the protocol. The rooms are clean, tidy and spacious, with a picturesque view of jungle and misty mountains. The resort is in a perfect location for all activities in one's Thekkady itinerary. Unfortunately, due to self-quarantine, my stay was within the confines of the beautiful room. I can't wait to come back to this elegant resort with my family.

Elephant Route is in the prime area and close to all the activities in Thekkady. The size of the room we were given was pretty big with a balcony having a nice view. The room was very quiet and clean. We also liked the welcoming attitude of the staff. The breakfast was good. The main factor is it's location. It is very near to all the activities such as Martial Arts, Kathakali dance, Elephant tour and also Periyar Lake. We had a very pleasant stay here.

The best and very quite hotel. Almost all the important theaters just 5 minutes from the property. Food is excellent and service is at top. My voucher had two room bookings but the manager gave us three rooms as it was available. The place is very quite and interiors are charming. The welcome they had given is really a good one. Recommended for stay in Thekkedy.

A nice place to stay, rooms are cleaned, spacious and well maintained. The staffs welcomed us in a traditional way and are very friendly and helpful. It's very near by to the Periyar Forest. The food they served was really good, mix of North and South Indian. No complaints, worth visiting. We had a lovely stay here. Maintain the hygiene. Thank you!
