If you wish to get away from the clutter of the city life then find a peaceful heaven at sunbird garden resort.(SGR) Located just little away from SB town on the road to kalpetta, SGR can be found at the foothills of Kolagapara with out any assistance.
The staff are very courteous, thanks to the team of Mr. Sanil, Mr, Benny, Rajesh & rest of team, they made our staff pleasant and wonderful. Food was simple & tasty : while maintaining the traditional kerala breakfast. (appam and nool puttu etc.)
Resort is close to major landmarks of Wayanad tourism and well connected with good roads, but for a few pot holes. We could make it easily to kanathanpara and soochipara falls, although Meenmutty falls is closer but we could not go there due to security restrictions.
SGR is located in a 10 acre plot full of coffee and areca plantation,with its own fishing pond. A trek to the kolagapara hill was worth the two hour climb with slight drizzle refreshing us every few steps. Watch out for stone quarry trucks enroute to the trekking base camp. Folks staying in kolagapara are very cordial, in fact we parked our car at one the residences, while we went for trekking.
If you wish to have a peaceful vacation with good value for money, this is the place. We had booked bamboo cottage from 19 to 21 Oct, Mr. Sanil obliged us by upgrading it to the luxury cottage at no additional charge. Watchout for dampness during the rains. Housekeeping and maintenance is good. Plenty of birds for avid bird watchers. Infact the place boasts of 100 variety of birds.
The place and the hospitality extended by the resort staff will last long in our memories. Given a choice, we will revisit next time.
Luxury rooms are better as they are not as damp as the bamboo cottages.
