perfect setting, beautiful views, amazing food served in an exotic cave, hospitable staff - what more could one ask for? birds, butterflies, hills, silence - i cannot think of a better fix for a holiday.

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.

It was a really a wonderful experience at Edakkal hermitage. The room surrounded by the trees was very attractive and we could enjoy the nature peacefully. The hospitality was excellent. The dinner serving inside the cave was remarkable.

Highly Recommended for people with Energy! The cottages are located at decent gaps from each other. Lot of uphill and downhill walking one needs to do. The rooms are spacious and the best part is the VIEW of the hills (see my pics). The most attractive part of this place is the NATURAL CAVE RESTAURANT with 100 candles lit and... More

We stayed in the new cottage and absolutely loved it. Very nicely maintained and well equipped with all the basic facilities. The cottages over look the mountains, its mesmerizing. The resort is located at the foot of the hill and its very close to edakkal caves. Although the climb to edakkal caves is very steep but definitely worth the effort.... More
