This is such a wonderful place to be in Thekady. Me and wife has a one day stay in a deluxe cottage last week. The resort is surrounded by plantations and is a quiet place for couples. It has got a wonderful recreation room. They have a good trekking trail all around the resort which leads to their tree houses.... More

Swimming pool is there, but no water..fishing is there,but not allowed to fish,tea is there,but that day it is not there.We had to literally argue with the staff to get all the... More

We have just returned after spending a day in the resort. Excellent place to spend a weekend. Hospitality was too good. Worth for money. Very well maintained. Food was good. Bird watching - photographers can find a lot more varities of birds to capture.

We took the Jacuzzi villa in the hopes of using the Jacuzzi but alas no hot water..so on a freezing hillstation the resort expect you to use the open Jacuzzi outside the villa with no hot... More
