This was so lovely. We had refused to stay at the so called ambient hotel we were booked into and this hotel offered us a choice of 3 rooms at very short notice. The staff were all so friendly and just couldn't do any more to make our unexpected stay a joy. A lovely welcome and drink drink when we... More

This is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay in the hills of the Western Ghats, with accommodation in thatched cottages and rooms, scattered around in beautiful tropical gardens. Shirley made us very welcome during our two day stay in the hotel, which we used as a base to explore the local wildlife reserve and the spice and tea plantations.... More

BEVAN-JONES PARTY. WALES. This wonderful hotel s located amidst a small spice plantation with the cottages nestled amongst trees and flowers. Cottages are clean, spacious and comfy, but without a T.V. However we did not miss the T.V in fact it was nice just to get away from the outside world and relax. The restaurant served very good traditional Kerala... More

A beautiful, calm hotel with great food and excellent service from the staff. My favourite accommodation during my trip to Kerala. The design of the hotel is lovely, the small shop has some good quality local items and there is are two self guided village and plantation walks to enjoy.

We recently included a couple of nights at this lovely hotel in our trip around India. The entire staff are excellent and the taste of the evening buffet food was probably the best we experienced. Our only word of warning is to OAP's like us, as we found the number of steps between reception and the lodges a little difficult... More

After a busy day travelling plus some activities, arriving here was like stepping into another world of peace and tranquillity. The welcome was excellent, welcome drinks and very friendly staff. We were there in mid-March so late season and there were very few guests there, so very quiet and peaceful, and plenty of opportunity to talk with the staff. Being... More
