Grassroots is a really lovely property, it's not very large but set up in a way where you still have privacy when sitting out. They have retained the plants and trees around as is, so it's wild and wonderful providing lots of greenery around. The tents itself are super luxurious compared to any I stayed in the past, they all... More

It wasn't difficult to find this place on Google map which is the best thing after travelling for a long distance. Staff here are really friendly, co-operative and happy to serve their customer. We arrived at 2pm and were very tired and hungry. They don't make you wait for hours trying to complete the payment formalities like others. They just... More

This place is the ideal destination for all the times we have wanted to take a break from the everyday madness of life. We didn't want to go by the tripadvisor pics of this place and were very skeptical while making our reservations at GrassRoots fearing disappointment of the place not meeting our expectation. The pictures looked really good that... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Grassroots is at the foothills of the Vythiri ranges with the majestic Chembra peak to the left and the Banasura/Kuruchermala to the right. The property straddles a tea estate and has a swift flowing river with a Pannia (a tribe found in Kerala & Tamil Nadu) colony at the edge of the river. Set on a three acre slope of coffee, areca nut and pepper, Grassroots overlooks the tea plantations planted during the colonial era. A quaint stream below forms a general area of activity for the scattered population of tribals and other residents. The Banasura range of mountains beyond completes the picture, making it truly magical. Accommodation is in Luxury Swiss tents, spacious and plush with every amenity that the discerning traveler would want. ... more   less
