“Perfect for a Relaxing vacation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The interiors are great and perfect balcony to chill out on. The place is perfect for a laid back vacation. The retro feel of the dining room has the perfect ambience to dine in.There are no billboards so don't miss the turn in kalpetta town. we got a bit lost when we tried to get to the resort from vythri. The food was very good top notch on quality could improve the spread a bit. The hosts were great. overall it was a very memorable trip for us.

my first trip to wayanad couldn't have been more memorable than this. lovingly created and family run, it is the perfect recipe to beat urban blues. plush tents, fantastic food, warm hospitality from the hosts (rachel and aditya) as well as the staff...all the small details they have thought through made for a wonderful weekend. the menu was a perfect combination (kerala cuisine for lunch & continental for dinner) tailor-made if needed to fit everyone's taste. place is very kid friendly, lots of little things to keep them occupied. our kids picked cashew nuts off the tree and the chef helped bake them! imagine their excitement :). look forward to more lazy weekends curled in the hammock with comics.

one of the best holiday getaways I've had, rustic charm in a luxurious setting...sounds paradoxical but that's exactly what Grassroots provided. luxury tents...setting: a beautiful coffee plantation, set on a hilltop with sneaking glances of a meandering river below; luxurious setting, bird watching, amazing hospitality, spectacular food for the gastronome & the unique nature trips organised.....kudos to Aditya & Rachel, the hosts, for creating & nurturing this special getaway!!!

We were looking for a nice weekend trip and we got exactly what we expected. Good food, excellent rooms amidst a beautiful garden, great hosts and superb view - to keep it short. Aditya and Rachel hosted us wery well and we would certainly recommend grass roots to all our friends and family members.

If I was looking for a relaxed stay, with good food, charming host and superb view I would go back to Grassroots. Its a place where one can curl up and read a book. The tents are tastefully done and I didn't feel that I was in a tent. I was here for my Birthday and enjoyed every minute here. Since they didn't have a checkout time we stayed there till late evening on the day of return just because we loved the place so much

Room Tip: Ask for the top most tent. It has a beautiful view

We had a very good stay in the tents the concept was very well executed. All our fears and apprehensions were laid to rest the moment we saw the place and met Rachel and Aditya. The food was just awesome with the continental theme for dinners and Indian theme for the lunch. Aditya has an amazing sense of music and adventure one shouldn't miss the boating by the resort inThoni and the rafting by the backwaters of Banasura dam. Please carry clothes which can dry faster if you plan for rafting. Locals are very friendly people and if interested can also arrange for fishing in the river near the property. The property is surrounded by the tea estates and I suggest a walk through the estate to reach the hanging / dancing bridge. The resort is placed in a very picturesque location midst the by vythri ranges. Mountain biking can be real fun and adventure if one has the will and stamina to cycle a couple of km. I would recommend THONI and Chengadam rides if you are planning tone less adventurous.

I can’t say enough good things about Grass Roots!

We visited Wayanad and stayed here last weekend. Rachel and Aditya are fantastic, charming hosts and the whole team at Grass Roots ensures that your stay here is comfortable, relaxing and hassle-free. We were well and truly looked after and nothing was too much trouble.

The tents are spacious and well-maintained; the bathrooms are bigger than many hotel room bathrooms I have seen! The views are wonderful and you really feel the tranquility of the area from the balcony of your tent. A really nice touch was sitting having a beer after a plantation walk – we wanted another one but were too lazy to walk down to ask for one. Without even asking, the staff took the initiative and brought another beer up to the tent – service like that does not exist in many places nowadays!

Make sure you do not eat for a couple of days before you go as the food is plentiful and very very tasty – a nice varied mix of Indian and Continental food means that you do not get bored and you look forward to every meal.

Definitely try this place – it is highly recommended!!
