The resort truly lives up to expectation of any weary traveller - standing tall and aloof from the city, overlooking the mighty Banasura Sagar dam. You wake up in the morning to the breath-taking view of the dam and the sun rising from behind the hillocks. I'll go over the positives before I get into the negatives. Pros: - A... More

The place is as good as seen in the photos. The scenery and nature are impressive. We were 3 families with kids - good fun. The package of 2 nights and 3 days is cost effective. The staff are courteous and very help in all aspects. The stream near by and the lake view are worth the visit. The speed... More

Excellent, you should try the room which is facing the lake.. Beautiful view and much energising Location is good to explore and your stay would be unforgettable. A trek towards the lake is exciting and nice

Positives: + Extremely beautiful place + Awesome view from cottages + Very near to Meenmutty falls + Very near the Banasura Dam + Authentic Kairali food + Good service + Surrounded by green forest Negatives: - Food is slightly over priced (though we got a discount on food at the end of the stay) - Far from some other attractions...

This resort is tucked away in a hill by the Banasura Sagar Reservoir - very serene and beautiful. Recommend going there in your own vehicle as this is very much away from access to public transportation. A great place to relax and enjoying nature, the best reward Wayanad can offer you. June - July are monsoon months in Kerala, India,... More

The location is excellent, simply breathtaking views from each of the rooms; but the rooms are very basic, expect no phone lines and TVs. Thankfully i had good mobile connectivity. In fact even room service is minimal. Set menu (buffet) for main meals. However there are some very nice staff who are always ready to help. Great if you expect... More

Most rooms/cottages has this luxury while quality of the view might differ a bit room to room - Twin cottage... More

Awesome and very picturesque location, very hospitable staff, decent accommodation, decent food. Could have been better with more amenities and activities pre-organized by the resort - having said this the resort staff was more than obliging when we asked for a guide for a short trek. Would surely recommend it if you are looking for a nice relaxing time, this... More

The view from the large balconies is amazing and it is a pleasure to sit on the... More
