Stayed with family for a couple of days at fern creek and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The tents add an offbeat flavor to your stay while the staff pamper you completely. The surrounding gardens are well maintained and offer an ideal setting to stroll around or enjoy a misty morning.

It really began at a single click, when this wonderful website listed The Fern Creek at Kodaikanal as one of its suggestions on the side panel. Until then, what was a random search for an ideal getaway, turned into a focused delving.

It was an excellent vacation for us on FernCreek. The service was awesome, the staff did really take care of us especially our daughter Prathika. Always asking for any special food for her and accompanying her to visit the fish pond when we are having our food and carrying a torch when we are heading to our tent at night.
