Awesomeness in terms of View, Hospitality (Thanks to Sijin and Lins), Facilities in the room, Candles' light dinner in a cave. Had no need to go in search for any Sun set points, cottage named Lascaux had an awesome view so that you can either lay back on your bed and enjoy the sun set or enjoy the Sun set... More

Great location, breath taking views, and a mountainside dotted with cute little cottages. I would highly recommend for travellers. Edakkal Hermitage is beautiful and pretty quiet. The food deserves a special mention, made with love, and just like one might expect food to be at home. The candle-light dinners in a cave on the property is a great experience -... More

It is a wonderful place to spend your weekend. We stayed here for a night and the experience was extraordinary. Very friendly staff and great hospitality. The Cave dinner in a real cave lite up by hundreds of candles is very romantic and worth it. You may need to book the dinner at the cave before hand and also mention... More

Friendly staff, well planned hotel/dinner package and the proximity to the Edakkal caves makes this a lovely get away. We were looking for a quiet and cosy place and a unique visit, we got all of that at Edakkal Hermitage. The food was generous and tasty, they took into account our taste and preferences even cooking plantains (big bananas) for... More

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
