perfect setting, beautiful views, amazing food served in an exotic cave, hospitable staff - what more could one ask for? birds, butterflies, hills, silence - i cannot think of a better fix for a holiday.

Edakkal Hermitage has a picture perfect setting, set on a hill top it gives you a brilliant view of the valley. The service was excellent and the food delectable. Would recommend this for the view, food and service.

The costing could have been a bit more reasonable as the resort has no other amenities.

I had a very bad exp in this resort.most of the facilities given in the email and site don't exist at all.spending time in this resort is waste of time and money.if you are planning to come to this resort then think again.the resort management is just behind getting the money from customer without giving any good service/facility.

We stayed at this place only for 1 night but the experience was just mindblowing.
we had the view of a valley right in front of our cottage. the cottage was so clean. and the people were very friendly and helpfull. The food was very homely and very very tasty.
OVERALL I LOVED IT. I wouldnt look for another place to stay in wayanad. I would definitely stay in edakkal hermitage itself. It was raining but i think monsoonis the best time to be in wayanad.

Room Tip: if u r the only people there u will get one of the rooms with the best view

It was a really a wonderful experience at Edakkal hermitage. The room surrounded by the trees was very attractive and we could enjoy the nature peacefully. The hospitality was excellent. The dinner serving inside the cave was remarkable.

Room Tip: Do not miss the dinner inside the cave

Absolutely fabulous place to visit. We went there from 8/6 to 11/6 this year. The place is beautiiiifullll, clean and pollution free!!! the view is phenomenal and the service is superlative!!! During the vacation our daughter fell ill and we had to request them to change the bed sheets etc a couple of times...not once did we feel unwelcome or see a grumpy face. Extremely friendly and nice...and the dinner inside the edakkal caves was an experience by itself!!!! BEAUTIFUL AND HOW!!!!!!!

The only thing I can think of is if they could include more menu options...

But overall a FANTASTIC experience...go people!!!

Room Tip: We were staying at the Lacaux cottage....beautiful!!!!

Highly Recommended for people with Energy! The cottages are located at decent gaps from each other. Lot of uphill and downhill walking one needs to do. The rooms are spacious and the best part is the VIEW of the hills (see my pics). The most attractive part of this place is the NATURAL CAVE RESTAURANT with 100 candles lit and no electricty (again, see my pic). If you are planning to do some trekking in Kerala, opt for the Edakkal Caves and stay at the Edakkal Hermitage after the trek is over... as you will be tired enough :). We enjoyed it and will definitely book this place to revive our memories.
