We stayed in Honeymoon cottage. The location in very good as you are inside the plantation. The staff is very helpful and ready for service at all the time. The restaurant has limited option but the manager and chef are ready help to provide the food your choice. The property is little old. The furniture in the bed room need... More

The property is in mid of team and cardamom plantations. These are their own I guess. And they have variety of rooms to offer. Normal hotel rooms to... More

Yes. This is the right name for this hotel. Its located in a tea estate without any ATMs nearby. The staff is very RUDE. The restaurant has ONLY buffet for dinner worth Rs800 with an average menu. Room service is 20%. If you have your own vehicle its good else be ready to be cheated by the people. NO Wi-Fi... More

Stayed here. What a beautiful resort high up on a hill in a tea and cardamom plantation. We arrived and found the rooms as described on the website did not exist ie a duplex villa with bedroom and living room. However we did have a beautiful individual villa. No AC but a fan in the room. Our first room had... More

It is a beautiful resort, the property is in midst of spice and tea garden. The landscape is excellent. The rooms are huge with big toilets, actually are cottages with attic to sit and have a cup of coffee or a drink. We had a scintillating ayur massage. But there after things started going wrong. The massage spa opens at... More

We wish we could have stayed more than one night. We had a secluded tree house above the trees all to ourselves with an amazing view!! The food was incredible and the service was amazing. We took a guided tour around the working cardomom plantation and learned about the different trees and plants there. We also visited the Aurevedic spa... More

I was in thekkady for... More

I and my husband stayed at this resort for just one day and we were in love with it. We stayed in a tree house. It was completely out of imagination. It gave a feeling of staying in a forest with all kids of birds chirping early in the morning to wake us up. The resort is beautiful and i... More

The place stunk like anything. The rooms were mediocre . The advertisement was huge. The second day we spent at a different hotel. It was 10 times better at half the price. Stay away from this place. Room Stinks like a crack pot

The resort was a very wonderful place to relax. Its such a huge place to chill & hang out. Staying in the villas is just a dream come true. The breakfast was good with limited south indian delicacy. I wish i could have spend more time in the resort. We roam around in thekkady for a day, but its worth... More
