“if you want to go to Wayanad then skip this one”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

I was planning to got to Wayanad and used a hotel booking website where these guys put there location as Wayanad, but its 85 KM from Wayanad city. because of this it completely changed my travelling plan.
So if you are planning for Tholpetty Wildlife then this is nice place to stay but if you are planning for actually Wayanard then this is not the right choice

After a tiring week, Wildlife Resorts, Tholpetty is the perfect place, where one can have a peaceful weekend. Natural beauty, awesome climate, and silent atmosphere. One can forget all the tensions and relax for a couple of days before going into another busy week. The Sanctury, which is very close to it and other beautiful locations adds to the spirit. Awesome food and friendly staff also helps a lot.

I find this very silent place to live in.. I enjoyed the night safari a lot.. We were able to spot an elephant family.. Also a tiger... Which i never experienced in life... Apart from the city life this was a calm place... I gareentee this place would give wonderful experience for your life..

Awesme experience in the wild... I and my family had wonderful experience at the resort. We were able to spot elephant, bison, wild boar and lots of deer.. Two sanctuary named tholpetty wildlife santuary and nagarhole santuary is situated near to resort.. I also had good experience of river rafting here... Though trekking to pakshipathalam was bit adventerous i had pretty good experience here also... Overall this is really nice...

Room Tip: If you looking for wildlife experience... This is the place...

We had a worst night mare experience in Wild Life Resort. Below are some of the points:

1. There was no soap, towel, water in the room and even we didnt get after three requests.
2. Rooms were very suffocating, no A/C, no fresh air inside.
3. No spoons on the table during lunch and had to request three times.
4. Food was not in sufficient quantity.
5. Breakfast buffet was served differently to different guests.
6. Tea served was not good.
7. Swimming pool is full of algae, fungi, bacteria and stinking badly.
8. Though the resort is in forest but no guard on the entrance door.
9. Lots of insects but no insect repellents outside the doors.

Overall experience- Very Poor=Terrible
Will recommend to anyone= Never

Best Regards,
Ekta

We stayed four nights in Wild Life Resort and found it a very average place to stay.
It's beautifully set amidst coffee plantation, just down the road from Tholpetty Wild Life Sanctuary.
The rooms are alright, the beds way too hard and didn't make for a comfortable sleep. We were for the most part the only guests during our stay, yet the staff failed to prepare our meals by the time we had ordered them, sometimes leaving us to wait for half an hour for some boiled eggs and toast in the morning.

The water in the swimming pool was too dirty, we couldn't let our kids use it, unfortunately.

While the staff is very friendly, they are also very inexperienced in how to run a resort and lack the kind of professionalism you expect to get when you pay 3500 rps per night.

On the plus side, the trip to a nearby temple in the morning was complementary, and so was the night safari.
On the minus side, the room was over prised costing 3500 rupees per night plus tax.
