“a home away home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2010

We were off to Kerala India! What made the trip unforgettable were the people who hosted us in Greenwoods Thekkady ...well maybe my letter to the very kind Manger will be better.. You can expect personalized service from All the staffs I think this describes best my experience there:

Dear Manager,

Greenwoods will forever be in my heart! The people in your staff, their excellent sense of hospitality and service and the peaceful surroundings is something that will not be easily forgotten.

The moment our cab reached the gates of the resort and quietly made its way to the lobby, i knew that this place was magical.

You graciously hosted us for dinner. That dinner by the way was the most fun we had --- wonderful food, cool atmosphere, friendly staff and your welcoming words made us more relaxed and at home
Even if we were there for less that 24 hours, those hours were spent well in exploring the beautiful simple rooms, the spacious and relaxing resort, garden and enjoying the top-class service of the staff.

The Ayurveda Center was another pleasant surprise! Please extend our thanks to the good doctor who was so accommodating.
It is really the people that make the "experience" different. Please extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone there.

The only thing I regret is that we had to leave so soon!


Thank you again!
Angeretti Monica

Nice woods-like property. Beautifully constructed in typical Kerala style. Rooms are spacious. The place has a calming effect and is well suited for a relaxing break. The walks inside the property early in the morning are energising. One can find shrubs of spices like cardamom right outside the room window. They have a well maintained pool and facilities for table tennis and badminton. Staff are courteous. Food is very good. Special kudos to the chef for the excellent jack fruit chips. Will definitely recommend the place to all travellers to Thekkady/Kumily.

The first thing that strikes you about Greenwoods is their warmth and hospitality. They welcome you with broad smiles and ensure you have all the information you need to ensure a great stay at the resort. We also loved their environment friendly policy. We stayed 2 nights and absolutely loved it. Our special thanks to the chef who took a personalized cooking class for us and to Senil, who ensured we were comfortable always. Thank you all for making our holiday so special.

I was celebrating my birthday with my husband in a week long leisure trip to Kerela in July 2010. We stayed at Green Woods Resort, Thekkady for 3 days 2 nights. The food there was excellent, the staff was even better. They were so friendly and attentive. One couldn't have asked for better services. Amongst all the places we stayed on i loved the service and staff here. The resort is well kept and peaceful. I am sure people looking at relaxing would surely enjoy their stay here!!

I will highly recommend Green Woods Resort. On arrival, to our surprise, we were welcomed warmly by the staff with garland. It was a pleasant surprise. The surroundings were so beautiful. With the trees and the breeze..... fantastic. The rooms... chalet is beautiful. Very clean and spacious. Also its beautiful inside. Only regret for me..we only spend one night. All of us wanted to spend few more days there.
The staff...exceptionally friendly. Never failed to smile. To add to all this, the evening dance was beautiful. Very professionally.

What a wonderful stay we had!

The winding driveway leading up to the hotel and the boundaries seem to cut the city traffic, out from your reality to bring a sense of quietness to oneself. The lawns and trees add serenity to your views from the cottages. The cottages were quite comfy and relaxing. The front desk staff were efficient. The room service was up to standards. The food servings were quite large, so be warned when you order.
The nearby spice gardens and ayurvedic massage centres add to the charm of your stay there. The close proximity of the Periyar National Park increases the significance of your holiday experience.

The coffee shop situated near the tree tops, takes the cake of course!

I had a great experience with Green Woods.

When we arrived @ Green Woods, we were welcomed very nicely. Location of hotel is very good. It's excellent place for nature lovers. You will listen sweet chirping of birds in the morning. Mornings are very pleasant there.

Rooms are very spacious and clean. Service is also very good. You will get a huge variety in dinner and breakfast. It's awesome.

There are many places nearby to hang out. You will definately enjoy it.
