“Closer to Nature”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I have stayed in this hotel for one night, and found it to be really good. The room was really clean, the toilet was in good condition. I specially loved how friendly the staff were. One of them took me around the resort showing me the different plants and fruits. The breakfast buffet was very good.

It is a excellent property to stay, Best one was the warm welcome by them, and staff is very softspoken and nice to talk to them. All facilities are excellent except Room-service which need to improve.Any way if I have to stay in thekkady in future i will choose only GreenWood Resort.

It was a nice experience to stay at GreenWoods. Food was excellent. There was a park for kids and our little 'chinnu' spent most of the time there. All staff were very coperative with excellent service.

Stayed there for 3 nights with my wife and kid. The location and the staffs are very child friendly. The rooms are clean with typical Kerala styled furniture and extremely eco friendly styled. The staffs were very pleasant and helpful. Staff response was impeccable and their knowledge on the local vegetation was mind blowing. Highly recommended!!!!

Room Tip: the rooms are almost the same in size and features except for Vanya which is in the mist of the jung...

A wonderful experience at Green Woods.we had a warm welcome with a cardmon garland and fresh Juice. Our bungalows was very spacious, bathrooms outdated and require more toiletries.

Green Woods is located on a quaint hill, surrounded by spice plantation. It's excellent place for nature lovers. You will listen sweet chirping of birds in the morning. Its very pleasant in the morning.

The entire crew of staff exudes an unbelievable hospitality. Right from check-in till check-out all our needs were taken care of in a meticulously manner

The resort hosts a number of activities like cooking demonstration, Indian classical dance property tour etc. for a few of which we were the only participants, but still, these were carried out by the staff with full enthusiasm. The dinner and breakfast buffets were excellent both in terms of variety and taste and they prepared special dietary for us no garlic and onions.

The boat trip on Thekaddy Lake was pleasant first thing in the morning very peaceful.

I had massage and was find but felt the two young ladies were not too experienced in my opinion as they were unable to answer some questions. More information on the various massage should be provided in the room explaining each one. Also after having Shirodhara, I used the shower facility in the treatment room and had lack of toiletries to wash my hair, water was cold and did not find it too clean.

On the whole very pleasant Resort highly recommend

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in June 2012. It was a memorable experience. The entire crew of staff exudes an unbelievable hospitality. Right from check-in till check-out all our needs were taken care of in a meticulously manner. The resort has a very nice ambience with traditional kerala decor. The cooking demonstration session and the cultural program in the evening were exceptional. Breakfast buffet is very good with south indian, north indian and continental options. Dinner buffet could have had some traditional kerala cuisines. Swimming pool and all recreational amenities are well maintained. The highlight of our stay was the trip to Vanya, a property of Green Woods. The place was gorgeous, the trek was refreshing and the tree house was a wonder. Thank you Green Woods team for your hospitality!

We arrived on 28 th may after a long drive from Munnar . The warm welcome by Ms sowmya and her colleagues with tilak and a cardamom mala and fresh juice was heartening ! We had booked aranya room which was big and comfortable . They property is beautifully green and true to its name ! Lots of trees , a lovely tree house cafe Ambara ! The Eco friendly nature of the resort took care to see that we didn't miss a/c in May ! Very good food and after every meal we were given a feedback firm , which shows that they care ... A nice dance programme every night by a very talented girl who performed bharatanatyam and kuchipudi and the night we left she said she would be performing mohiniattam !They have a good recreation room , Gym and a lovely pool .
What made our stay so special was the service by every member of the staff who were so happy doing their work and always smiling ! Ms sowmini, mr anish, mr punydas and everyone else ....
We loved every moment there and would love to go back someday ...
