Three days experience in Fern creek resort was awesome. They prove that customer is king and serve their best. Hospitality at its best. The total environment and staying in tent gives you soothing feeling. We usually compromise food if we go out but here in this resort I found the best food and literally enjoyed it. They made customer specific... More

An awesome get-away for couples and small families. The place is surrounded with the beauty of God's creation and the tweets of birdies are music to the ears. The cozy tent /cottage setting brought in a feel of adventure in the comfort of a luxury abode. The folks there make you feel at home and their hospitality cannot be easily... More

The Swiss tents were a great experience. The service was awesome. However, Kodaikanal seems to have deteriorated over the years. The service was great and the staff very helpful, however, the tent themselves were in need of a little repair. The hot water supply turned off on day 2 for some reason. The staff were able to fix it very... More

We stayed for 3 nights. While the property is very pretty (though not maintained)....it is heavily understaffed and poor on service on all counts. Food menu is bare minimum in terms of spread for the tariff being charged.Staff is courteous and energetic but can't make up for the short staffing. The property is designed for couples and offer privacy. It... More

What floored me was their warm and prompt service. Never experienced any place like this before. Amazing people. Oh and if you are into bird watching you will enjoy this place even more. It's mostly calm and away from regular hustle bustle.

We family of four stayed in "Fern Creek" for 2 nights, Once we entered the resort we didn't feel like going out to see any places in Kodaikanal, since this property is very cool with lots of green trees and plants, the Swiss Tent is very comfort and clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Untouched and raw, The Fern Creek is a haven for all who yearn for a break. The ambiance is comfortable and refreshing filled with the aroma of eucalyptus, lilies and pines. Designed for utmost privacy, our 7 Swiss luxury tented villas are spread across 1.5 acres of landscaped garden. The in-room amenities are equivalent to a 5 star resort. The property as a whole has plenty to offer to meet your expectations/moods; even more, our all inclusive packages will save you the effort of tying up the loose ends of a holiday. The Balinese spa run by Indonesian Nationals offers the best of international therapies. For the incurably romantic, or the terribly laid back or even the complete workaholic who needs a reason to celebrate – The Fern Creek offers something for each and everyone. The Fern Creek is a holiday waiting to be discovered. Always fresh, one with nature, come and enjoy the glory of life. Welcome to The Fern Creek. ... more   less
