We can only concur with all the other reviews - just the best. Having been on the road for a few days cycling across India it was just a lovely place to relax and also to have the benefit of having the additional choice of Indian and Italian food, both excellent. The whole hotel was clean, quite and is set... More

This was my first time in india and I can honestly say that I could not have wished to stay at a nicer hotel. All the staff are very nice people and nothing is too much trouble. The food and drinks are excellent. There is plenty of exotic wildlife and the famous massage and wildlife park are just a stones... More

The moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, the manager and all the staff. Our room was on the third floor and our bags were cheerfully taken up all the flights of stairs. That is a downside, lots of stairs - I wouldn't recommend if stairs are a problem. The room is very basic too.

A beautifully tasteful and well maintained hotel, set back in a privileged position in Kumily at the jungle's edge. The rooms are amazing and well beyond the standards for most Indian hotels. Impeccably clean and really confortable. The views over the gardens and jungle canopy are wonderful. We sat on our balcony just sitting and listening to the amazing sounds... More

The friendly staff make you feel welcome as soon as you step through the doors of chrissies. The room was spacious and colorful and perfect for me and my family, with hot showers (luxury!) and a balcony. The staff helped us book all the activities we wanted and were super helpful and gave us all information that we needed. I... More

Chrissies is a lovely place with a great outlook, especially if you get the rooms at the top. The owner super hospitable and always happy to help with any queries but I thought the food was pretty average, especially the coffee.

We stayed here for 2 nights last week . It is a quiet spot , but walkable into the main town of Kumily. We thought the breakfasts were the best we had since arriving in Kerala . The staff were great , even when the Monkeys joined us for breakfast one morning , which can be a bit disconcerting !

We stayed at Chrissie's Hotel for three months, from September to December and got to know it really well. Adel the owner is a wonderful guy who's extremely hospitable and welcoming to everybody. The staff are also delightful, and we felt like part of the family from the very outset of our stay. The Hotel building is modern and beautifully... More
