We stayed for two nights with my children. I am really astonished by the ever smiling faces of the staff. They never said no to anything. Parthiban, the chef was always ready to please us. Shiva, Raj, Samuel and Xavier were very helpful. The only downside if this place is the continuous barking of the dogs from the neighborhood.

Visited Kodaikanal and stayed at fern creek for 2 nights. The location is interior and that's why very calm. The staff is courteous and nice. Breakfast and dinner are nice. Kids enjoyed the place. Overall nice experience.

Visited for the second time. Excellent South Indian food, very friendly staff, well maintained Swiss tent (honeymoon suite). Unlike the last time it was pleasant weather during the entire stay. Improvements from the last visit are noteworthy. An ideal place for couples wishing to spend time together.

Firstly this property is absolutely unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. The narrow steps with no handrails, the uneven flagstones one has to navigate to get to one's tent and the awkwardness of the tent itself. The interior is small and packed with bits of furniture that makes for difficulty in navigating around. The narrow slit between the tent proper...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Untouched and raw, The Fern Creek is a haven for all who yearn for a break. The ambiance is comfortable and refreshing filled with the aroma of eucalyptus, lilies and pines. Designed for utmost privacy, our 7 Swiss luxury tented villas are spread across 1.5 acres of landscaped garden. The in-room amenities are equivalent to a 5 star resort. The property as a whole has plenty to offer to meet your expectations/moods; even more, our all inclusive packages will save you the effort of tying up the loose ends of a holiday. The Balinese spa run by Indonesian Nationals offers the best of international therapies. For the incurably romantic, or the terribly laid back or even the complete workaholic who needs a reason to celebrate – The Fern Creek offers something for each and everyone. The Fern Creek is a holiday waiting to be discovered. Always fresh, one with nature, come and enjoy the glory of life. Welcome to The Fern Creek. ... more   less
