My family with a friend booked this homestay for 2days (28th Oct). This is approximately 14 Km from Thekkadi. The approach steep climbing road of about one and a half Km to the resort, is very bad and narrow. The initial rooms allocated was very small, with defective water supply. No hot water. Then we were shifted to a cottage... More

A nice hotel. Worth the money, with large bedrooms and bathrooms , located far away from city's buzz near a hill lake.The hotel is surrounded all squares by cardamom and banana plantation which renders an exotic view in the morning sunlight. The hotel is facilitated by good quality food. The staff being nearby hill dwellers show extreme hospitality and concern.

This is a very special place, high in the hills; the management and staff are wonderful; the food is well prepared; we learned so much about how cardamom is grown and processed; although it is off the main road, it is not hard to get transportation down to Kumily and Thekkady; but we spent a whole happy day just walking...

This Hotel is far off from main town of thekkady. So, if you like peace and nature , you might like the place. But if you wanyt to be in the city and spend your time in city, you will have tough time reaching to city from your hotel. Rooms are big and well maintained. Its typically not a hotel... More

We shortlisted this location based on the reviews we read on tripadvisor. Unfortunately our experience with this place was an unmitigated disaster. All my email queries were promptly answered but only with generalities like " once you are confirmed we can talk to the cab and find the correct amount" or " we can hopefully manage it at that time....

We stayed with a group of 12 and it was wonderful! Beautiful location that is located away from any road noise or trains. Very quiet, except for the birds (a plus!). Short hike up the hill and you have amazing views of the Western Ghats. Boating and fishing as well. The staff is excellent and Varghese is one of the... More

Great place for unwinding and relaxing, it is about 5.5 KM from Kumily town and about 1.5 KM from the main road, remote place and makes you part of the nature. The plantation is spread over 200 acres at the foothills of periyar forest. We were 6 couples along with 9 children. Dr Kurien who owns the place and the... More
