“Fabulous stay in tranquil gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

It was so unexpected! We didn't book this hotel in advance. We booked a homestay and unfortunately it was not suitable for us. We asked our taxi driver to take us to a nice hotel. From the moment we arrived we felt very much at home. We were welcomed with a complimentary drink and garland, even though we were only checking out availability and prices.

The reception staff are wonderful and will go out of their way to help you. All you have to do is ask! We didn't need persuading to go and collect our luggage from the previous place and were shown into this lovely little ground floor cottage. It was very clean with all the amenities and always had hot water. The bathroom was well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and they had sat tv. Tea and coffee station and fridge. Basically, everything you wanted.

We joined in the cookery class and watched the Kathkali dancing - both were great. The restaurant staff were very attentive and although there were not many guests when we were there, (we stayed in September), they were very obliging to our requests. I had to ask for lemongrass to keep the mosies at bay - but that was provided immediately.

The guys on the reception went out of their way to assist us with information and even helped me to get up into the tree house café, which I thought was excellent! Being up their reminded me of being in Nepal.

The restaurant staff were also so lovely and of course the housekeeping staff! They presented me with a lovely posey of roses on our departure.

All in all it was a very beautiful place with beautiful people. If you are considering where to stay in Thekkday, don't hesitate in choosing Greenwoods. Thank you to all - you made our trip.

Sorry we didn't review earlier but unfortunately I had an accident at our last destination hotel and have been very unwell for 5 weeks.

God bless you all and thank you.

To start with, the booking was effortless and without any hastle whatsoever. Our stay was limited to a day because of our booking at Kumarakom which turned out to be a disaster, left us thinking and wishing we had stayed at Greenwoods for another day because of the hospitality, friendly staff and most importantly excellent food. I would surely recommend this as a must-stay resort at Thekkady. I hope they continue to keep up the good work.

I stayed with my family (3 rooms - Aranya type) here for 2 days during Oct 2013. It was a very nice place with lots of greenery.. Actually the best part of our vacation was the time we spent in the resort.. Rooms were spacious, clean.. staff really courteous..

We had only breakfast at the resort and it was good. I cannot comment on the lunch and dinner.. Anyways overall a place worth staying.

We enjoyed our stay in Greenwoods from the cardamom garland, welcome drink and friendly staff only regret being that we stayed only for a day. The rooms were excellent with all amenities. I must say that the breakfast had much variety than other resorts. we also enjoyed the salad bar during dinner where the chef made it as per your choice. They also have in house activities like spice plantation visit, cultural dance(the dancer was excellent) and a tour of the property which is usually at 5 in he evening, but the staff gladly showed us around in the morning. They have cows, turkey rabbits which we enjoyed watching and a cute tree house coffee shop. Kids will enjoy the garden.

We (family of 4) spent 3 days at the Green Woods Resort...it was a wonderful overall experience. When we made the reservation one of the reasons we chose Greenwoods over other resorts that we contacted was their responsiveness to emails. While other resorts responded in 24 hours or so, these guys responded within couple of hours and made sure they answered every question in detail.

We chose the Rithika Private Villa with the plunge pool and added couple of extra beds for the kids. It is tucked away at one corner of the property and very quite, you can hear the birds if you sat in the verandah next to the pool. The internet service works quite well across the property and is quite reliable which is amazing given the remoteness of this location.

All of us including our kids enjoyed the Ayurvedic massage (first one for the kids)...this was managed quite well. Would highly recommend the Full body massage with the herbal steam bath, absolutely relaxing.

The reception is good at making arrangements for the local trips - Jeep safari, elephant ride etc. and quite responsive to all your requests.

Laundry service is very affordable and return items quickly if requested.

The restaurant (the only one on the property) is delightful in the variety they serve up. The breakfast is a buffet that includes south and north indian fare along with western continental elements. The dinner service is a la carte and the menu is quite extensive. If you do not find something on the menu, you can request it and they do go the extra mile to make it happen.
If you do not make it before the closing time, they do pay attention and call you 30 minutes before to make sure you do not miss out. The sous chef makes it a point to visit your table and enquire about the food and if there is anything they can add.

Overall would rate it highly - very customer focused, great service!

Room Tip: Rithika Private Villa, includes plunge pool.
