Location of the hotel is excellent. If you like forest, this is the place to stay. But remember market is 4km and you can't walk, either a auto or taxi. After 6pm hotel compound gate is closed. But the surrounding is awesome, deep woods, squirrels jumping, monkeys whooping, birds chirping, Periyar river flowing nearby. Food is EXCELLENT. No queue for boat riding, preferential treatment for KTDC guests, jeep safari arranged by hotel.
Only one complain. They should keep security guard in swimming pool. I have seen monkeys drinking water and kids are swimming in it. Totally Unhygienic.
