“Enjoyable holiday !!”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Had visited ClubM Thekkady in the last week of November ! Frankly, this resort surprised me positively.. :) The layout is wonderful, what with the many cottages spread across an uneven area with undulating paths to take you there !.. It almost felt like you were staying in the jungle with the many trees surrounding our cottage. Unlike ClubM resorts, this one is actually located relatively closer to the market, which works both ways (I prefer it that way). The activity center was very good and my 3 year old had a blast there.

Otherwise, the service etc. was excellent as you ought to expect from a ClubM resort.. Overall a great choice for a 2-3 day stay. !

Room Tip: If you have senior citizens, ask for a room to closer to the reception and restaurant since the walk...

Very conveniently located, at a walkable distance from a wide choice of eatery options, spice shops & souvenir shops. Quite close to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary as well. You can either opt for a whole day jeep safari in the jungle or else, if you have less time in hand, take a ferry ride at the Periyar lake; we took both. You can also visit elephant camp & spice garden. The food at the resort was good but expensive, as in any other Club Mahindra property. The rooms are very nice & spacious, has an old world charm. The spa is very good & reasonable too.

good resort in main area of thekkedy but it lacks peace and calm of resort. ALL the time noise u hear of vehicles takes away charm of this property. food is average and service at restaurant
is terrible. u ve to wait a long for rotis and nans . no cooridation. resort manager should look into this. activities r good. but taxis for local sight seeing r to expensive. better rent from outside. u will save alot.

Room Tip: take ground floor rooms in centre of resort. they r quieter

It was a club Mahindra property but got it booked thru one of my frnd. Enjoyed our stay in Wood villas.. Size of the villas was worth saying it a villa.. they named their lanes by different animals like snake lane, tiger lane.. Lots of greenary inside them.. Even when you are in you won't be able to differenciate weather you are in actual forest or in town.... Food quality was the best i had n south India.. Their pool was best.. it's worth stay here if you got a chance to stay in Thekkady,,

We visited Kerala in Nov 2013 and Thekkady was the second stop from Kumarakom. The place is about 4 hours from Kumarakom. Enroute you pass a few towns followed by rubber plantations, vast tea plantations, spice gardens, a waterfall, and winding roads which take you to lush green Thekkady. The resort is situated very close to the Periyar tiger reserve.
The resort itself is very well laid out with nature pouring out of every corner. The staff is amazing and clearly make extra efforts to ensure a pleasing stay for guests. An added advantage of the resort's location is the closeness to the market - so you have the option of having food outside when you are tired of the resort food. Having said that, let me also point out that this resort has an amazing variety on buffet - and food tastes the way it should. So a chinese dish would taste that way and not like sambar.
There are lots of activities in Thekkady.You can, and should, visit the local clubs that put up a performance for Kalari(Kerala martial arts) and Kathakali every evening(Rs. 400/head for both). Its walking distance from the resort and will take about 2.5 hrs.
For the much touted Periyar boat ride, you need to queue up early morning at the tiger reserve(~5 am), go in and wait. The ride starts at 8am and goes on till about 10. We found it extremely boring though we did see a herd of wild elephants. Its avoidable.
Then there's the elephant ride - which is like any other. However, if you are travellign with kids, do get the elephant bath done - the elephant bathes the kid on its back with its trunk. Our child simply loved it.
There's a jungle jeep safari as well - about 4 hours.
The resort itself organises cultural events in the evening - which we found to be quite lively.
All in all, its a very nice resort to visit. Definitely must do on a Kerala visit.

All the rooms are like stuffed in Nature, and they have some special Mosquito repellent program in resort. Spa is very nice. Rooms are very spacious as stayed in 1BR. Swimming pool was bit dirty but that was due to monkeys on the trees who were jumping around the trees above swimming pool.
