“Best hotel on our Kerala trip.”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

I stayed for two nights in the Treetop Hotel during my last trip to India (Dec,2011). The hotel is centrally located in Thekkady, very clean and has very spacious well maintained rooms. Food at the restaurant was very good (both a'la carte and buffet) and excellent service. We fully enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would come back to it in a heartbeat.Only complain is that Wifi is available in the lobby only for the price of100Rps per hour.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

We were re-booked at the Tree Top after a big mix-up from a previous hotel in town. Glad we stayed here. It's very quiet, the rooms are large, comfortable bed and the staff is quite professional. Outside the rooms you share the terrace with the next room; each side has a set of Adirondack chairs. Because the rooms are huge (two per floor) it doesn't feel cramped on the terrace.

Food-wise, dinner (as most places I stayed at in Kerala) is great. What surprised me more was the buffet breakfast - pretty good. Unless it's a 5-star, I'm just expecting serviceable food.

They booked us an 8pm Ayurvedic massage down the road (complete with pickup/drop-off even though you could walk it). As we were booking, the front desk suggested we place our dinner order before leaving since we'd be back near when the restaurant took the last order. Back at the room to kill time, the restaurant rang up noting we were going for massage and enquired if we knew what we wanted to eat. Of course we didn't yet, but details like that are indicative of good customer service.

If we weren't in a rush to get to Alleppey, I wouldn't mind staying another day there.

one of the better hotels on the road that leads up to periyar lake and sanctuary...rooms (cottages) are comfortable and nicely done up...outside area have been landscaped well...
the morning buffet was good too with pretty decent spread.

We saw the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give this place a go - we were not dissapointed! The cottage are pleasantly decorated, their central location is superb and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We were slightly dissapointed that i called four times to room freshener, but this was understandable. Overall though, our stay was superb and we'll definitely be going back again!

Loved the exclusive patio area each room has.
Good view of the mountains from the patio area.
Clean Rooms and bathrooms.
24 hrs hot water was a plus.
Towels replaced with fresh ones and rooms cleaned every day.

Complimentary breakfast....is good, but if you stay for four days, you realise the menu is consistent, no innovations there. Yes, food is expensive in comparison
to options available out. Hotel ambadi has a good restaurant, a good alternative.

Staff - courteous and fairly helpful.

Over all, thekaddy itself is such a refreshing place for city dwellers, that minor hiccups turn insignificant.
