Club Mahindra Thekkady
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

One of the best club mahindra resorts.... The cottages are named after animals...the rooms are like huts.... U feel like u r surrounded by wildlife... Cozy n warm.... Walkable distance to market... And kathakali and marshal art shows

Thekkadi,itself is very close from MADURAI, and after TAMIL NADU"s cultural and Temple City of Madurai,is the best retreat with a cool ,green and serene atmosphere. And CLUb Mahindra"s Tusker Trial cottages are the best to unwind and rewind. From Reception,to Housekeeping and Dining Experience and the ambience...superb. Very neat, very Clean, and it is in centre of Thekkadi. We stayed in January, the right season. For a family of 4 with two kids, the rooms with interconnecting door was a boom, and credit goes to the undemanding Reception. Only dissapointment is @ Spa for my wife. It seems the Lady there was not proficient. But, my male massager was knowing his job. There are no ACs, mind you, but heaters are available.

Room Tip: For good privacy, select Rooms 903 and 904...of course, u may have to do good climbing. Well it sh...

Visited club Mahindra Tusker trails during month of Nov 2012 which i feel the ideal season to visit.Very good studio cottage got and staff was very friendly. Kids have plenty of things to do and very quite happy. Cleanliness of bathrooms were not up to mark and foul smell was always coming due to issue with piping.
Went to elephant bathing and most memorable was bathing "by" elephant. Must visit the place elephant bathing where elephant uses the trunk to shower.

Went to Thekkady for a holiday with my wife. The place is in a nice spot - near the Periyar reserve and town center, while being away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. Enjoyed the nature amidst the cottages. But the main grouse had been with the restaurant - While the staff was very hospitable, the food was not worth the huge price paid for the meals. Breakfast was comparibly decent to dinner and lunch.

The spa is purely commercial with no authentic Kerala touch to the massages offered. Plus, there seems to be a bias towards families booking for bundled spa packages. However, the staff at the hotel are really nice and friendly, especially the front desk.

A real rip off is the fun zone where just a climb up the trees makes you dearer by Rs.600 and xbox games are ridiculously priced. Also a disappointing factor is non-availability of DVD's as in other Club mahindra resorts. The travel desk is quite expensive too.

Overall, a decent holiday destination.

Room Tip: Take a walk around the town and you will realise that Periyar Tiger reserve is just a 5-min walk fro...

We reached Club Mahindra Thekkady after a two night stay at CM Munnar. We were disappointed with the 1 BR accommodation we were provided. The premises was not well maintained and had used plates and cups lying around our room. The sit out of our room opened to a pile of garbage. The bath room was in bad condition anD water over flowed from the wash basin.

We were initially offered an old blanket to make the sofa-bed. We had to insist and escalate to the manager in order to obtain a quilt to keep my mother warm. When one is provided a 1 BR accommodation that houses 4 adults, why does CM not provide proper bedding facilities for all four adults to sleep. Two of them have to adjust in make shift sofa-bed with just a bed sheet. It is time CM did some thing to replace their old outdated sofa-beds.

Lastly, Why Club Mahindra? I hold a red season membership but have always found it a challenge to plan my vacation through CM. I have been told time and again that I should make my reservation 5 to 6 months in advance. Obviously CM is only interested in selling their membership with out having sufficient resorts. I also doubt the effective utilization of the resorts. How much of the resort facility is made available to the members?

We were a family of four,including my mother who is wheelchair bound,visiting Tusker Trails for the first time.This resort was several times better thanwhat We expected.The Front desk was very helpful in allotting us two cottages next to each other and also arranging for an attendant to move my Mother's wheelchair on a daily basis on the big and small ramps and slopes inside the resort.God bless the attendant -Babu- who was very happy to do this duty.A very special mention to the Chief Chef of the resort who personally took keen interest in our food preferences and arranged to serve us special dishes during our entire stay of 4 days.The restaurant service staff is of high quality. The housekeeping services need to pull up their socks.Every day we had to make couple of calls for plumbing and housekeeping services.But the overall experience was SUPERB .I 'm glad the resort has maintained the Natural surroundings of a jungle and is making lot of effort to maintain various types of trees and plants which could become extinct soon.I would definitely recommend a massage at the Ayurvedic spa inside the resort.I wish I had taken more destressing and relaxation therapies here because there was not a single slot available at the Spa in Munnar where we stayed for 5 days after Thekady.I would definitely recommend this resort to young and old travelers.

Room Tip: Take a cottage in the viscinity of the restaurant.But check out the plumbing system first.
