We stayed 2 nights, 3 days at Grassroots and it was a wonderful experience. The experience of staying in the tents was very unique. However, you need to keep a watch on insects as there are many trees around. Prajwal the manager was very friendly and food prepared there was awesome. We went with our 2 boys ( 8 years...

This was my first ever visit to a resort, and i was not disappointed. The main host, Prajwal, is very hospitable, and the chefs preparing the food are pretty much local, so you get a really good local flavor in your food, which is amazing to say the least. This is right in between of a forest-like area, and these...

If you are looking to live amidst nature this could be the place for you. August rains completed that natural aura. Living in modern tents was a good unique experience. Food was good and as per our choice!! Staff was very friendly. Charges are reasonable. Its a small resort. We missed common areas and in-house facilities. Its worth a visit....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Grassroots is at the foothills of the Vythiri ranges with the majestic Chembra peak to the left and the Banasura/Kuruchermala to the right. The property straddles a tea estate and has a swift flowing river with a Pannia (a tribe found in Kerala & Tamil Nadu) colony at the edge of the river. Set on a three acre slope of coffee, areca nut and pepper, Grassroots overlooks the tea plantations planted during the colonial era. A quaint stream below forms a general area of activity for the scattered population of tribals and other residents. The Banasura range of mountains beyond completes the picture, making it truly magical. Accommodation is in Luxury Swiss tents, spacious and plush with every amenity that the discerning traveler would want. ... more   less
