A group of lady friends travelled from Bangalore to a relaxing getaway at Abad Brookside Wayanad. The road to the property is narrow which maens the two jeeps from the resort had to pick up all of us and carry our lugguage. Took a while. Shreejit on the front desk was very efficient and helpful, the property is compact and rooms well spaced although no AC which means during summer the rooms will be hot. The housekeeping was good too. What was disappointing was that the place was often noisy with families and children in the pool with shorts, T shirts and even salwar kameez. No dress code here meant, hygiene of the pool was compromised and we had to stay away from the pool. No massage facilities or spa either and with the property being a small one, we were forced to go out to…
First, let me say sincere thanks to the staff. Most of them(except the guy at the front desk, who handles billing) were nice and helpful, especially the folks at the restaurant. Breakfast buffet was good. That’s where all the good things stop. About the not so good things. We were at the rooms 401, 402 and 404. Unfortunately, we were given rooms that were close to the sewer treatment plant. To our bad luck, the plant had issues the day we stayed. The odor from the plant was so bad that we couldn’t even get out of the rooms or move around the property. So at all cost, avoid those rooms. Now about some health concerns. Room 401 had mold on the ceiling, which is a serious health concern. (Pictures added). My recommendation: don’t fall into the trap of resort management paying…
We had a two days stay at the resort. A brook is located inside the resort and that is the highlight of it..Good climate..Good food and good people around..What else u need to enjoy the location..Resort Manager Abilash needs special appreciation for running around the guest and asking for their comfort ..It's not a pet friendly resort..It has many monkeys inside...But it will not trouble you if you don't fees them..So keep food away from monkeys ...The presence of monkeys is due to its nearness to forest. We had a very peaceful stay in the serene beauty of the resort
I could given 4 rating if I have not met the manager of resort, first he has to learn how to treat the guests. We are new to the property and we don’t know where to go and where not to go! Please keep a sign board all the place where the guest are not permitted. So that we will not get Insulted by the manager of the resort. The food is average and we have ordered a biriyani which was below average and the chicken was overcooked. Which they will charge you Rs. 300++, I will not recommend this property personally.
A serene place soooo close to nature. A beautiful stream runs through the property, listening to the sound of flowing water at night when it's calm and quiet is such a mesmerizing feeling.... Staff was very friendly, food and accommodation was good. We loved the place. Would love to visit this place again. But road was horrible for almost 2km.. we were not expecting such a bad road.. But destination was worth the bad ride.... It ll b much better if the road was in good condition....
the property is inside the forest, had to travel about 2 km off-road provided by the Thar from Abad. it was fun . The atmosphere when we reach here is a different level. You can blend with nature in this resort. Its Highly recommended for families and couples.
Abad Brookside in Lakkidi gifted us a memory of our lifetime. The property is located inside nature's cradle and a very wonderful holiday destination. Hospitality of Abad and its staff makes this property a wonderful experience center for its guests. I would recommend this property to any one without even thinking twice, fo those who would like to have a proper family bonding time experience in a scenic and comfortable background. Mr. Abhilash (Manager) at the property is a person who has hospitality in his blood and makes sure you are comfortable and happy during your stay in Abad Brookside. His service and hospitality was truly commendable during our stay. I wish all the best and success to Abad Team for their future achievements. Keep up the good work!
Checked in at Abad Brookside yesterday stayed for a night with my family, Booked through Mr. Vishnu Venugopal he made sure that everything goes perfect during our stay, he took our preferences and allergies at the time of booking itself and it was a visual treat when we checked in .. Special thanks to him Such a beautiful property and the ambience was mind blowing, we stayed in the Brooks Cottage and the rooms were excellent, staffs are always the added asset for this property Mr. Abhilash (All-rounder), Chef (Who made such authentic food for us) Roy – Front office, HK and IRD staffs (Always there to help) and the security team (The pillars of the place).. Great place to visit with family and friends
Location was really awesome in midst of the forest and by the side of the brook.Hospitality of the staff is worth mentioning.It’s sad to register that such a beautiful property is not maintained properly.Rooms were not very lean especially the fan ,Photo frames etc were laden with dust.Lampshades and bookshelf at the reception were deteriorated..Dinner was ok but the complimentary breakfast ,though it had many items,didn’t satisfy the taste buds..Kindly look into the flaws mentioned for the customers will have great expectations from Abad group of hotels
Happened to visit the property by seeing the resort in one of the youtube video.I was very much impressed and thrilled to visit the place and checked-in sept 2021.The rooms were not at all clean and it was dust all over,may be they were not able maintain it after the covid-19 pandemic.I was also given a discount rate of 5000 Rs for the brookside villa,but still it was not worth it.The only attraction is the brookside in the resort.The pool was also open after pools across kerala were opened after the govt lifter the restrictions,but it was not at all properly maintained.I will not tell people not to visit the property,but it is not worth more than 3000 Rs.
