Club Mahindra Thekkady
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This hotel is in the town. We lived it alot. The chalet type rooms were nestled amongst spice trees and plenty of greenery around. Food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff was accomodating and friendly. Would highly recommend it to anyone going to Thekkady. There were 5 of us (myself, husband, 2 teenage daughters and my brother). We booked one room but the front office kindly offered us a complimentary studio for my brother which was much appreciated, although the room we had could have easily accomodated all of us. The room was spacious. The hotel also has a ayurvedic spa but can't comment on it as I could not use it due to the fact that the lady masseuses had all gone for training. While in Thekkady town, you might want to catch a martial arts show. For us, it was interesting and you can find them in the town centre.

Visited with family in March 2013. The resort is nice and well maintained. Has numerous trees, home to black colour monkeys, with up and down pathways (maybe not suited to an old person) which makes it feel like a jungle. The rooms are huge, well equipped and has plenty of space for a family with small or big kids. However the bathrooms are really tiny and a bit smelly (mainly cause of the size). The bath linen also was old and not to the standard of a Club Mahindra resort. They do provide for baby cribs which was extremely useful. The staff are friendly. However the resort seems understaffed. Room service could take up to 1.5 hours and still bring you the wrong order. The food is good and buffet spread is typical of Club Mahindra resort which may not be worth the price but with a lot of choice. However the service is horrible at the restaurant. Again maybe cause they are understaffed they could not serve well. You would be frequently standing to an empty bowl of vegetable and roti's (bread) was a fight to get. The service / cleanliness at restaurant was so bad that at breakfast you could see the food & dropped utensils under the table from the previous nights dinner. The bathroom at the restaurant is something one should completely avoid. The spa is decent and so is the pool but the water is usually cold for one to swim. The resort is centrally located and you could reach various touristy destinations, restaurants and shops by foot.

Name anything and its right there at an affordable value based rate.
May it be the fun area, the ambiance, the STAFF (the most best), food, location, anything.
My fav. Part was the friendliness and help provided by the staff. Noticed this human element in each which helped to connect and get things done conveniently. They were simply awesome! This also was a driving force for me to get myself a membership at Club Mahindra !!

My check in time was 2:00 pm, however I reached the spot at around 8 am. We were allowed to use the facilities around and our luggage was taken care of. So we didn't have to worry about it for the rest of the day. The rooms are were clean and we got a free upgrade to superior rooms. I think this is how customers should be treated.

Room Tip: Avoid travelling to Thekkady during Summers.

The resort was very good.We have experienced big delay in checkin.However other than that there were no bad experiences.

You get a feeling that you are in the middle of forest while you are in resort.You are welcomed by monkeys every day moring.

Rooms were clean and restaurant has good food.

However the outdoor activities in Thekkady is poor. The town is sleepy by 8 PM.The periyar boat ride was also poor experience.

Overall resort is great place to relax.But avoid thekkady if you are fond of sightseeing !

Room Tip: All the rooms has tree view and monkey view 1 hence all rooms are eqally good.

Visited this place in October 2012, they have these unique cottages with thached roofs and each cottage has a different name, generally a bird specie. The rooms esp the bathrooms could do with some renovation. They have a small swimming pool but the water was very cold as it rained before we came ....... the restaurant has a buffet system which gets a little monotonous although they have room delivery also .............. nothing much to do at the resort per se because the main attraction is the Periyar wildlife sanctuary where you have to stand in queues to get tickets for the 5/6 steamers that they have which take you for the ride ...........unfortunately, we could not get the tickets because of the holiday rush ........ and the hotel management should have told us about the same to enable us to manage our time properly .............we saw a part of the sanctuary sans the boat ride ........ and its really awesome with lush vegetation and huge trees ...........sanctuary visit is a must do in thekaddy ..............
