“Worst Hotel - Makemytrip is horrible”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This hotel given by makemytrip and this will spoil your trip.Its 40 kms away from Thekkady and there is no meaning to go there.There is no enough staff in the hotel.Hotel's Manager Mini Parera serves the welcome drink,serves the food, Preparing the breakfast and comes with you to show the room also.No staff at all.

And their highly cost room is Treehouse which is very pathetic.Its not maintained at all.There are many crocroazes,lizards and spiders in that rooms.Their service also Very disappointed .Food is not tasty at all .In short if you want to spoil your mood and trip then go to this hotel.There is nothing like resort in it.Not expected this from makemytrip. Very very disappointed.

Dear sir,

The resort is well staffed at all times and we do accept the fact that we are located in a quite an beautiful location. The tree house do not have the insect mentioned in your report. We have very spacious and well maintained rooms and we would appreciate honesty in writing a review.

with warm regards

Even though we had a nice stay at the resort, we were charged higher rate compared to other resorts. Be carefull while negotiating the room tariff. Payments are seems to be unaccounted.

Location of the Hotel is very good and near to tourist spot. House keeping is very good and food quality is also good. Rooms size is not as per the standard and the alignement fixatures is not not proper.

Dear sir,

We are quite reasonable in pricing and the room tariff changes depends on type of room and season.
It is difficult to keep the alignment of furniture and Television according to every guest as some guest like to watch TV with a cup of coffee and some while lying on bed. Since our rooms are big, it is surely a problem. we will consider your suggestion during the next renovation.

best regards
Anita Mani.

Great place to stay, especially the Tree house if you like such kind of ambience. The tree house is really a tree house, amidst of trees with birds sound and wind blowing around. Ideal place for couples.

Room Tip: Tree House is the best option especially for couples.
