I travelled to this place in April 23 – 24, 2016. One of my friends from Kozhikode had told me that this is a different type of get away destination. Indeed it is. Not a luxury place. No A/c rooms. (No need also in that climate). That means, if you are a “Hi-Fi person, this is not for you. But if you want to spend your weekend with family in a silent, near-forest area, with a great moderate - hard trekking facility, this is your destination ! Very economical. Mouth watering tasty food. We had opted for a bamboo cottage. Very cordial staff; even though they are not very professional, you will like them because of their simplicity and sincerity. There is no show-off ! You will fall in love with the restaurant area with the river running beside deep in the forest, and that cute Yellow thick-tailed beautiful cat who is always there! There is no parking area inside the property. You have to park your vehicle 3 km away near the main road (safe!) and then their vehicle will come to take you, which is indeed a jeep, only which can travel through such a hard terrain. In short, a simple, budget place, for people who want to spend their time in a silent forest area with a good trekking facility, with nice natural food, and simple staff without show-off !

Went on the first weekend of June. The resort is located several kms inside from the main road and is slightly difficult to locate. The off track road is not in good condition but a SUV can go easily. We were 7 people, all friends and opted for the family villa as we all wanted to stay together.

Once we reached the resort, it was very peaceful and the only sounds you can hear is of birds. They have planted many flower plants and it was good to look at them. The rooms are well maintained. Service was not proper and was a drawback. They have a in-house restaurant but we need to order beforehand so that they canl arrange everything. Tea/Coffee are complimentary and we ourselves prepared it twice as we were not much satisfied the way they prepared. Food was good. Breakfast was traditional. There is a small stream running at the back of the resort. There was little water in it but post monsoon i believe it will be awesome. The games area need to improve a lot

Pros: Location - very peaceful. Food was ok. Rooms were clean. Great place for a laid-back vacation

Cons: Location - Off road condition not so good. Service need to improve a lot. Need to improve a lot on indoor activities and games as many things were broken.

Room Tip: Select cottages. for families, family villa is best.

Wonderful place to stay. Good climate and environment.

Only thing which was little uncomfortable was some wash rooms.

Rest people are very good and caring. Especially Mr. Sarang was very good.

Rooms very spacious and big. Clean as well.

Room Tip: Family Villa or Wood House.

Recently been there. Location was nice but the mgmt is extremely bad. Here are the list of our bad experiences in this resort:

1. The resort is like 3 kms from main road and the road is v narrow and bad. We kept calling the resort for directions. We somehow struggled and reached and then the staff told the parking is in downhill in the main road from where they provide jeep. I asked why they didnt inform before. Anyways we again went down to park our car. We lost 2 hrs.
2. After checking in found the toilet was not cleaned. Asked for towels and bathing soap. Staff told they'll bring those in 30 mins but they took 2 hrs to provide soap and clean toilet. In bathroom there was a bucket but not mug. Instead there was a plastic bowel. We lost half day to settle down.
3. When we asked for lunch they gave us shock saying they dont provide food. We went downhill in main road by hiring a jeep and have food. By then it was dark and we could not use the day for sight seeing.
4. After returning to resort enquired jeep rental for local sight seeing. Staff told its free of cost from the resort. We anyhow could not believe.
5. Next day early morning asked for tea. Staff promised to make it for us in 10 mins but actually got it after an hour and some shouting.
6. There is no spa, indoor sports, cycles etc as advertised in their website. Everthing is in not working conditions.
7. We hired a jeep for local sight seeing from the resort and got a higjly inflated bill. We argued and then they reduced the bill amount for 1k. The friendly staffs were laughing after the argument. Attaching the bill photo.
8. I felt one of the staff is a minor. He said that his name is Arjun, age 16 yrs and belongs to nepal. Attaching his photo as well.
