My husband and I spent 3 nights at Sunrise Valley Resort. We had driven down from Bangalore. It is a long drive which takes complete 7hrs to reach taking 2 stops.We had to take a left turn at Kolagappara but we missed this since the left turn is a very small one. We lost our way at Vaduvanchal again. We reached the main town and could not see a single sign which pointed us towards the resort. We kept calling the resort for directions but all that they provided was for us to take the road leading towards Kalpetta. From the main road the resort is a little interior since it is present at the edge of the hill/forest. Once we reached, the warm hospitality and wonderful view helped calm our frazzled nerves. Check-in was smooth and we were led to our room.
In the resort, each cottage is individual placed few feet apart. There is a big verandah with seating all around. You enter into the main part of the room which contains the bed, wardrobe, study and dress table and a table with 2 single sofas. There were also large French windows opening out onto the balcony. Bathroom was spacious but I felt they could improve on the quality of fittings used.
The restaurant of the resort is present right next to the swimming pool. We were very happy with the size and maintenance of the pool. Campfire was provided on Saturday night. If they had served some snacks it would have been awesome. There is a natural pool which is advertised and can be reached after a short walk down the hill. This might be a nice area during rainy season but at the time we went the water was stagnant and did not look very clean.
On our second day we asked the staff the directions to the sunset point and we were pleasantly surprised when the manager accompanied us till the spot. This was a well worth walk as the view from this point is breathtaking.
We went sightseeing on the third day. We asked the cab to take us to Vythri resort for lunch. After visiting this place I can safely say that I was extremely happy with my choice to stay at Sunrise Valley Resort. Only the quality of food was better at Vythri according to us.
I will end by saying that the trip was very good, relaxing and peaceful. We booked the resort during a promotional fare found on cleartrip.com. Hence it was well worth the price!! We thank the staff for giving us a wonderful holiday.
Facilities at the resort – swimming pool, TT table, Carrom table, Books to read, Cycles to roam around near the resort.
