The rooms are in bungalows down pathways, it might be difficult if you found steps and slopes difficult but the different levels gave the site a very nice feel.... More

The rooms were basic with a double bed, small old style tv and a hospitality tray. There is a small dressing room with a desk and chair, safe and fridge. There is no a/c but... More

Had the wonderful opportunity to spend two quality days at the Elephant Court, Thekkady. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Right from the reception till departure it seemed an extension of ones own home.

A good quality hotel for the area. Few guests so only one restaurant open. Would have liked to have had a "bar" area but only the large reception space was available. Please could the staff intervene when necessary and politely tell the parents of unruly children that bad behaviour is not acceptable in a restaurant.
