Stayed here for a night recently while on a trip further down south. The resort is outstanding, with its beautiful cottages, the view, food and the access to the caves. We stayed at the Kapova cottage, which is perched on a hillside with great views of the western ghats. The nice balcony served as a view point and a place... More

Edakkal Hermitage is a nice place to stay a couple of days. The rooms are neat and clean. The location is excellent. It is exactly on the trekking trail to Edakkal caves. The food is tasty but they offer only fixed menu for lunch and dinner. The service is excellent and the staff is quite friendly. The food is pretty... More

When I say "Athithi Devo Bhava", its cz we were truly treated dat way... had a long weekend and took my parents out after almost 12 yrs. Since it was peak time, didn't find any bookings and the reviews here convinced me to take up 2 rooms. Luckily got the Kapova rooms (There are just 2 in Kapova). Let me... More

I have stayed both as Solo retrieving my thoughts and with friends on the way to the caves, the place has always been with great food, comfortable lodging and a very friendly family oriented service that makes the place for a quiet retreat if one wants to get away from busy city life! We had even celebrated my dad's 60th... More

One of the must see places on your list. Very close to the Edakkal caves. The rooms are very modern with good amenities.It has 7 rooms all named after the caves. I would personally suggest Kapova rooms if you need privacy and great view, else Edakkal room is also pretty good and very spacious compared to Kapova. Cave light dining... More

The Edakkal Hermitage is probably one of the best resorts in Wayanad. It offers fantastic views, the food is awesome, the hospitality is amazing, and the ambience is outstanding. The only troubles are with 1. Access - The property is on a hill, and hence one has to climb the steep uphill road to Edakkal Caves. This could be tiresome... More

Edakkal Hermitage has a picture perfect setting, set on a hill top it gives you a brilliant view of the valley. The service was excellent and the food delectable. Would recommend this for the view, food and service. The costing could have been a bit more reasonable as the resort has no other amenities.

I had a very bad exp in this resort.most of the facilities given in the email and site don't exist at all.spending time in this resort is waste of time and money.if you are planning to come to this resort then think again.the resort management is just behind getting the money from customer without giving any good service/facility.
