Lemme start by thanking Rahul for giving me this wonderful option of lantern stay. I would like to thank Mr.Alex for guiding me the way to lantern stay and calling me up and checking on whether we had started from home , where we have reached and to make prompt arrangements to pick us up from lantern stay car parking area.. Mr.Ali was waiting for us with the jeep for the off-road journey of nearly 30-40 mins..thank u Ali for dropping us at our destination safely 🙏..we thoroughly enjoyed the off-road drive.. We were welcomed by Mr.Sameer (GM) with a warm smile and hot lunch..though the kerala style lunch was tasty it was a bit spicy for us as we r not used to this kind of spicy food..this was brought to the notice of the chef Mr.Shaji..he had kept a note of this in his mind and prepared dinner as per our taste requirements..thanks a tonne chef...🌟spl note :"ur idlis were out of the world..it's so soft and chutney was awesome too.my mouth is still watering at the very thought of the idlis😍. A special mention to Mr.Vishnu(manager) who was available 24/7 for any sort of help.A positive person with lot of enthusiasm towards his work .. Kudos to the housekeeping staff for a great effort in keeping the property spic and span. U all make a wonderful team.waking upto the chirps of the birds,sound of the stream and of different species of animals was a soul soothing experience..a resort in the midst of the forest is the highlight of lantern stay..it was truly a date with the nature..in love with this place. My program was to stay for just one day..but then the whole experience made my entire family extend the stay for one more day..so I had the fortune to stay in both villa and wooden cottage..the view from wooden cottage was just awesome... Will recommend this place to my near and dear...

Aaah...!! What a calm and beautiful stay in the midst of cardamom plants and a noisy brook. Ambience was perfect for a nature lover and food is amazing for a foody. We had a great stay with Lantern. From our first contact Alexettan to all the staffs Alikka, unni, bobin and all others were so pure. Great work by The chef.. All rooms give privacy and comfort. With any problems will be solved in minutes. Loved the trekking with bobin, it could have been a little longer that's what we all thought. Really a peaceful atmosphere with the sound of river echoing in the valley calms our nerves and make us forget the hectic world outside. I will for sure come here again.😇

Lantern stay like the tag it says exactly offers you "a date with nature". We a group of 5 friends had an amazing experience. This well maintained clean place offers excellent ambience, privacy and peace of mind. Another thing to mention is the great hospitality provided by Alex their marketing head who guides us from start of trip till end and their every welcoming staffs at the resort vishnu, unnikuttan and robin. The food they serve is exceptionally tasty and the best I had in a trip so far. There is a stream passing through the resort which gives you a soothing ambience along with the music of birds. Also they have a game room with table tennis, carroms and outdoor badminton court. The trek in the morning is a worthy walk to a beautiful waterfall near-by. The place is equally ideal for a couples or friends group. They provide night campfire with a good speaker system and personalised barbecue on request .

Absolutely outstanding resort perfectly located. Helpful, friendly staff who will make sure you have the best time. It was my wife birthday and It was a lovely surprise when we reach the resort. Also excellent food was served. We will definitely come back with friends and I would highly recommend this stay. It was a date with the nature😊. Alex was my first point of contact to make the booking, it all went really great till we reach the destination. Hats off to all the staff with zero attitude. Vishnu though he deserves good position. One advice: Build some more cottages Overall experience was really great. Thanks to everyone.✌️

One of the best resort I have visited till now. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Great staff who knew how to serve the customer. The room was well equipped and the service was excellent. The location of our room was absolutely perfect. . As soon as you come out of the resort, we just need to cross the road and there is a direct path leading to the stream. It felt like a private stream, very clean and clear water, a very good place to relax and chill. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. I must say the location of the resort is at best place of Rain forest. Excellent hospitality.

If you are looking for a place to from daily busy life, then you must choose Lantern stay. As the tag line says "a date with nature" it was really a date.The Place with the sound of chirping birds and babbling brook. The journey to lantern stay by offroad was a wonderful experience for the ones who has not experienced any offroad yet. And also the morning trekking was splendid. Staffs were super cool and supportive with a smile in their face. They always check with us wether we need any help from them. And the best part is the food, stomach friendly, tasty food and the staff continously check with us our needs. The stay at Lanternstay was amazing and we enjoyed the days there. Staffs were super cool and supportive. Your cook got the god's hand as the dishes were yummy. Especially we enjoyed the breakfast and lunch. The premises are wild and green. The nearby river, its sound etc, kept us relaxed and calm. Great days there. 😊 I would like to specifically thank Mr. Alex(+91-8078863393) , who helped us to reserve the room. He kept sending us updates like how to reach the parking area, sent us route map and other information. His engagement helped our timely pick up from the parking area to the resort which is 4KM inside the forest. He timely followed up our check-in regularly by calling us over phone. Really appreciating your management skill. The current climate is amazing there.

Loved the location, off road drive, great hospitality, trekking etc & the food was only average. Its worth for money and great experience. But the agent who made the booking (Mob: Alex, +91 80788 63393) was ridiculous. He was really unprofessional & worst in personality. Though I have a request to the property's management that there are end number of professionals out there in the market who treats the guests in a good manner. So please take a reasonable action, even i have provided all my chat data done with him to the property incharge. However, the property was tremendous & love to visit again....

Lantern stay explains well about itself in the tagline ‘Date with Nature’. You get a break from the loud hustles, bangs and the pollution. The sweet songs sung by the birds, the burbling of water along the streams and falls, the thick green forest and on top of all the cool weather brings happiness and calms the soul. It is indeed a therapy for both mind and body. I could never imagine myself without internet a complete day but Lantern stay just made me forget about it and kept me mesmerised. The hardwork and effort the staff(special mention to Vishnu, Unni, Robin) put in to bring smiles on our hearts is not to be forgotten. And they don’t forget to carry theirs(smile) too! A big thank you to the chef for I get no words to tell how the food was! The way it was served, the taste and the view with the food was just perfect! Longing to go back again and explore more in the forests! I highly recommend this place to all those in search for a good stay in Wayanad, for those who wants to relax and recharge your souls and for those who wants to go for a Date with Nature!
