The tents were really awesome. Kids loved it. And the place was really well made up with greenery all around. The people were very hospitable. Only issue was that the tents were fully booked when we went and the buffet timing was a bit delayed. However, to compensate, they supplied separate food for my two and half year old. Even... More

We stayed at this property in Sep 2015, having selected based on reviews on Trip Advisor. We really liked the stay, the hospitality of the staff, homely food and the overall ambience. Staying in a tent was a first time experience for us and we were a bit skeptical to start with. But, as it turned out, it became a... More

We stayed at the Ferncreek for 3 nights and loved the place. Just 7 tents in the midst of 1.5 acres of beautiful flower and fruit trees. We spent a lot of time taking pictures of the colourful array of flowers. The lake is 6 km away. A leisurely stroll took us 35 minutes. Spotted bison on the way too.... More

The Fern Creek was a very different and charming experience. We stayed there for five nights in May. The tents are extremely comfortable, cosy and great fun to stay in.

Where do I begin? After living in India for the last 12 years, till my visit at the Fern Creek, I've always hated staying in hotels and other accommodations in India.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Untouched and raw, The Fern Creek is a haven for all who yearn for a break. The ambiance is comfortable and refreshing filled with the aroma of eucalyptus, lilies and pines. Designed for utmost privacy, our 7 Swiss luxury tented villas are spread across 1.5 acres of landscaped garden. The in-room amenities are equivalent to a 5 star resort. The property as a whole has plenty to offer to meet your expectations/moods; even more, our all inclusive packages will save you the effort of tying up the loose ends of a holiday. The Balinese spa run by Indonesian Nationals offers the best of international therapies. For the incurably romantic, or the terribly laid back or even the complete workaholic who needs a reason to celebrate – The Fern Creek offers something for each and everyone. The Fern Creek is a holiday waiting to be discovered. Always fresh, one with nature, come and enjoy the glory of life. Welcome to The Fern Creek. ... more   less
