Note:- This is a re-review. This place never ceases to amaze you. Fantastic and absolutely beautiful. The entire property is surrounded by tropical evergreen forests and is absolutely stunning, with no distractions like tv, your mobiles wont work here and the nearest civilization is approximately 4-5 kms away. This is my 5th visit and I absolutely loved it.... again. We... More

A great place to go with a bunch of friends. To just chill and vege out. The place is clean and the food fantastic. We came from Malaysia in December 2012, a group of friends, and to escape to a place like this was super.... We heard a tigers roar, and we saw wild elephants trampling thru the ingle around...

Absolutely LOVED the place and the people running it. It is nestled deep in the mountains and the nearest civilization is 4 kms away. No phone connectivity, no internet connectivity, no TV - Absolute Bliss! The only thing you can do is go on really long walks or read and eat Muthu's fantastic cooking! And Shaji is the perfect guide... More

When you are told that you and your travelling companions have the whole place to yourselves because they know you'd prefer it that way, you know its going it's not your ordinary resort. Fringe Ford is remote and the trip there up needs a story vehicle - it was all arranged for us and we were met in the local... More

What an unbelievably magical place. We were meant to be here for 3 nights but ended up extending our stay by an extra night. Mammooty is an absolute gent, so helpful, accommodating and knowledgable about the land around Fringe Ford. Shaji was a wonder to behold, pointing out elephant and tiger tracks that we would have just have walked past... More

A remote place with incredible views of the mountains from the terrace. Walks with guide, Shaji, were amazing - he is so enthusiastic. The food was superb and vast quantities of it. First meal not spicy but cook soon learned we like real Keralan food so wonderful on subsequent days. Need to be reasonably fit to enjoy the walks although... More

We had a perfect stay at Fringe Fort: The house is charming and perfectly located in the middle of the Wayanad forest. Totally relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. The staff (the guide and and the manager) were absolutely friendly and helpful! The food and the chef were amazing. All in all: mind-blowing! Thanks a lot.

My wife and I stayed there over New Years 2014 We had excellent guidance getting there, first on the phone, and later from the managers son guiding us thru their private forest road. If you have a 4x4 vehicle, we strongly suggest you to be bold and do the drive yourself, though a very good jeep drop is arranged by... More

If you want an isolated, far from civilization, in and around nature kind of stay, then Fringe Ford offers excellent value for money. The treks we went on were very good, although leeches can be a problem. The rooms we stayed in were comfortable and clean. To top it all, home cooked food by the hotel staff

We visited Wayanad and chose Fringe Ford basis reviews that my partner had picked up years ago in an Outlook Traveller edition. And the resort lived up to our expectations in every way. Whether you are looking for a trek in the jungles, authentic delicious home cooked Kerela food, or lazying on a hammock with a view of the far... More
