The resort was immaculate and staff were attentive and helpful. Amenities were great, particularly the day spa. Food was served in generous portions and had a mix of both Southern Indian and European cuisine on the menus. Only downside was that the free wi-fi was hardly ever accessible due to system failures.

If you dine there don´t forget to ask brushetta. (condimented with a touch of Indian style). Rooms are fine, views correct and excursions and travel offered from the hotel at average prices and more easy to book.

Its a heaven in God's Own Country, Kerala! Traditional architecture combined with excellent service made our three day stay extremely memorable. Children enjoyed swimming/playing in well maintained pools/play area. All the staffs were extremely helpful and the room service, very prompt.

The hotel has a Kerala wooden architecture touch and feel. We stayed in a Patio room, with a balcony (nothing to write about the view!). I didn't find any cottage that offers any great view, as the resort faces some adjacent concrete buildings , except may be for some of the pool facing ones. They made up for it in... More

I stayed at the Elephant Court with family (wife and 2 kids) for two nights, May 18th and 19th 2014, and had an amazing overall experience. As of now, this property is ranked 10th in Thekkady but certainly deserves a higher ranking for their good service. All their staff was very helpful and courteous.
