“deserve more than 5 stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

we had visited this resort on 7th and 8th december, with our 5 year old kid. well i must say this place hospitality is unique and heart warming. i felt like a owner of this beautiful property, while staying there. i bet you cant here a word "no" from these people,. after visiting this place i think i was little generous in giving 5 star to some properties i had visited earlier, met one of co owner of this property, a wonderful gentlemen . all staff were wonderful, right from sajith, vinod, jeep driver, and every one else, sorry i dint remember the name.
private water fall experience was great, and please dont miss jungle drive on mountain, little adventurous, but fun.they have little farm of animal which kids gonna love, and small pond for fishing. surrounding of resort is beautiful, and rooms are very well designed with big balcony. overall in words i cant describe the whole experience. my kid is asking me again and again, when will we go back to mountain.
if you are on a honey moon than better opt for a cliff villa, little suggestion for property they arrange some slides and swing for little kids , dont scare from last leg of road, which is little thin and not laid , anyway road trips are meant to be for a small adventures.
its a small property, which heart is placed at a right place.

Room Tip: all rooms are gorgeous, but cliff villa surely for a honeymoon couple

A very good location. Beautiful scenery. In the middle of the tea estate, clouds just passing the balcony. Close to the nature. Rooms are very good, spacious, with balcony & good facility. They make fresh food daily & it tastes awesome. I really enjoyed the meals. Staffs are very friendly & helpful. Things they need to change are few: change the bed linen & towels everyday, heater can be little big so one can get hot water atleast for few mins.
We went during off-season, so not much to do outdoors, but enjoyed the stay.

The resort was a bit remote than expected, almost 25 km away from Kalpetta town. But once you reach there, you will forget the pain of the travel. Such was the views surrounding this resort, with huge tea plantations on one side and a deep forest valley on the other. Rooms were very spacious and clean. The service and food were also very good. I would recommend this resort to any one visiting wayanad.

Room Tip: We Stayed at a spacious deluxe suite which can accommodate 4 - 5 people easily.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my family.

Location :

Getting there was bit tiring but once reach you will feel that you have come to a wonderful place and your tireness goes away after seeing the location.

Rooms:

We stayed in Luxury room. The room was super spacious for a family and absolutely clean. Room has a very big balcony and has good view of the tea estates around you. Take your binoculars with you and you will be able to spot few birds in the early morning. A/C was very good and defnitely needed in the noon. Restrooms were OK compared to the room.

Staffs:

All staffs in the resort were very good and welcoming. They go to greater extent to make sure that you feel that you feel that you are in your home. Manager Sajith was outstanding and he always made sure that we are comfortable with food and overall stay.

Food:

Food was great and they took our inputs by end of each meal and prepared the next meal based on our suggestion.

Overall:

It was a different experience for all of us since we had stayed only in hotels / resorts before and this was like a 5 Start Home Stay.

1. Good Location
2. Great Stay
3. Amazing food
4. Staffs were very good (this definitely stands out)

Though everything was so nice excepting few ones, which should have been taken care as they are very minor ones and I am not sure why these were neglected / ignored.

1. We were requesting for Bananas but we never got any in our 4 days stay in the resort
2. We were requesting for Idlis / Dosas in the morning but this was ignored for some reason.

Our doubt is...then why do they ask for our suggestions....they can serve a fixed meal...isn't it ? The above ones were a big negative as we were irriated at one point irritated and we left it (not sure whether others will as these people charge you heavily for the stay)

Other Suggestions:

1. Rest room walls were not so clean
2. Should plan for a swimming pool

Please remember, Wayanad doen't have great sight seeing places and this resort is wonderful place to spend your vacation.

I will recommend this place to my friends and other family members.

Room Tip: Go for Luxury rooms

i was plannning for my honeymoon trip to kerala. my husband suggestion me to go through trip advisor website as all the rating will be geniue in that and i found out chateau is at the top most list. i though the price would very high it was almost reasonable comparing to other resort i went through so i booked cliff villa.for find cwoods would be little difficult.once we reached the entrance gave us a gud feeling.Mr sajith gave us a warm welcome.we went to our villa that was really really awesome.the cliff villa on the top of a small hill.it was clean,luxuries with a great view.Mr,sajith and all other staff was very friendly to us.food was reasonable with awsome taste and if u r a non-veg then u r lucky to be there.as it was a honeymoon trip i want to have candle light dinner i told to sajith and he arranged it very well,beyond our expectation.
Suggestion:
1)keep more boards as its difficult to find the place
2)can hav a cupboard in cliff villa
Strong Points:
1)awsome location
2)gud homely cooked food with varieties
3)friendly environment
4)reasonable price for food which is not included in u r package

Room Tip: If u r a couple u can go to cliff villa,but if u r with a family opt for other suite

We spent 2 night at Chateau Woods , Wayanad this month on 7th and 8 Dec.
Had got really good reviews of Wayanad's beauty. So i checked for the best resort on
Trip Advisor. Just reading the reviews and checking the pics by previous visitors, i decided it
cannot get better than this. To be very true, my expectations from this property were fully met
as i just checked in. Very well furnished rooms..i.e Luxury Category i stayed in. The resort faces
the Tea plantations with a beautiful view all around. The hospitality too was very good as they
prepared food according to our needs. Mr. Sajith and Mr. Vinod who takes of this resort have
given us personal attention and what more can one ask for. !!!! Felt more at home than at a resort !!!

Room Tip: If you are a Couple, go for Cliff Villa room which has the best view n location. Only problem is th...

We visited Chateau Woods on Nov 23 and stayed for two nights.It is difficult to get there as we were visiting wayand for the first time but once you reach there you forget everything. We stayed in the luxury room with a private balcony and cliff villa. I must say that it was a wonderful place in middle of the tea estates and if you are staying cliff villa one can hear sound waterfall and wind from valley.View is fantastic from cliff villa.About the Property: Wonderful: As It is rare for a place in the midst of tea estates the view from the balcony is simple superb and the rooms are well planned and of course big enough to accommodate two people. About the Food: Delicious! You can order food of your choice and relish the taste. You might not get the varieties at par to the hotels but what ever you get will be of good quality and taste. About the Staff: Less staff and very friendly. I hope the property will be adequately staffed in the future. About facilities: Can be improved. Less scope for outdoor games but you might not need it unless you have kids who might want to play around. I suggest a play area for kids with swing and skate will be handy. You can just take a long walk and also the cycles to ride around, but on a holiday you might have different plans. Places around: We just visited the Soochipara Waterfalls. The resort manager arranged a jeep and we accessed the waterfalls through a private property. It was a wonderful place with no crowd, probably the access was only for the Chateau woods guests. We did not want to travel and waste time and just rolled back in the hotel. Verdict: If you want a luxury stay in middle of an estate, yes, you can go to Chateau woods. Considering the more or less the tropical climate, the management can plan for a swimming pool and may be a fitness centre and spa also.
