It's been 3 days since we checked out of Wayanad Wild, and each passing day makes me realise just how much everybody at Team Wayanad Wild worked to make our stay amazing. Let me begin by pointing out that this resort is an eco-sensitive property that takes its claims of being nature-friendly seriously. There is absolutely no plastic in the campus, and this extends to using re-fillable containers for shampoo, drinking water and everything else that presumes the use of disposable plastic. What sets the place truly apart (as is the case for most top-notch hospitality ventures) is the staff. The front desk staff (Netto and the super sweet Aparna) are helpful and considerate, the housekeeping staff happy to help, but it is the team of naturalists that are the heart and soul of Wayanad Wild. Maneesh, Jyothis and Dhanya take so much interest and effort in the nature walks and bird/small wildlife spotting, that you can't help feeling like learning as much as you can about all the birds, animals, amphibians and insects there are around. A true case of genuine interest rubbing off on your subjects... And I cannot overstate how amazing the food at the resort was. The executive chef is always doing rounds of the restaurant, checking how the guests like the food and what he can do to customise the fare. The grilled items were awesome (we even liked the veg stuff), and the dessert (ginger pudding, coffee souffle) was outstanding. The ghee roast dosas for breakfast were just what I was hoping they would be, and all the curries (chicken, fish etc) were fabulous. Jithin and Aleena were always ready to provide suggestions and add helpings, adding to the already good thing going on at the restaurant. The rooms are big, if a little spartan, but still comfortable. But the idea of the resort is to reduce your carbon footprint, and like I mentioned, they take this aspect seriously. And the approach to the resort is a 25 minute off-road experience, kindly eat light before reaching Wayanad Wild, and while checking out. If you're looking for more than the typical sit in room and chill with booze/snacks experience, I cannot recommend Wayanad Wild enough. Go for it!

We went for a weekend getaway. They have a nice guarded parking spot with refreshment rooms in the main road itself, we parked our car there and we were taken to the property in a jeep. There was a little off-roading, but overall the ride was alright, took around 20 minutes to reach the property. We were welcomed by the staff with Sulaimani chai. We met the nature expert Dhanya who briefed us about various activities like nature walks, evening talks etc. Food was out of this world! Chef Velayudhan's special chicken biryani was fantastic. All the ingredients were locally sourced and the staff were all happy to explain each item, its origin etc. Chef Velayudhan was always happy to talk to us and he was available at the dinning hall during all our meals. Do ask for Chef specials on the day. We did a nature walk with Dhanya and Manish. We were told to wear a special socks and boots for protecting ourselves from leeches. There are a lot of leeches, so be careful and carry sanitizers. We walked to the interiors of the forest and hiked few km. They had binoculars and helped us spot a lot of rare birds. They were very knowledgeable about the nature and were happy to answer all our questions. Rooms were really nice and cozy. Privacy also is great. Balcony has always the sound of water stream and leaves. There are monkeys, so beware and close the balcony doors. Few photos I am attaching of the trip. There was no plastic bottles or anything that was non recyclable which was a great thing. Overall we had a great experience. Definitely recommended for families and couples.

Scenic location and perfect example of great hospitality. The welcome from the staff was warm and the naturalist at the resort explained us everything about our stay and the wildlife trail walks. The staff at the restaurant was extremely friendly and caring, the food was delicious. Homemade jams and pickles were simply amazing. We did some shopping from the hotel shop, truly indigenous stuff. We had two great evenings here, which obviously also added up to the experience. First day we did an afternoon jungle trail with a team of highly motivated naturalists. We did one more trail in the morning next day and we truly enjoyed walking through the scenic valleys and jungle. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a serene and calm environment. Overall the gesture of the staff, feel of the place and the atmosphere around is so special that it really felt like never before. Special Kudos to all staff doing a great job here;

We had gone with our kids , our parents and stayed for 3 nights 1 week ago and satyed in 3rooms - superior room and deluxe room with jacuzzi . Check in was contactless and through whatsapp . They picked us up from their parking in Lakkidi and we went through rough terrain for about 20 min to reach the resort loacted inside the forest Covid precautions are mainatained throughout and none of the staff removed their masks even for a single moment Rooms are are all well maintained. deluxe rooms are very spacious .Jacuzzi was functional . The view from all rooms are good looking into the forest and mountains . The view from first row of superior rooms are very good (101-104). It is a great experience to sit in the balcony and just sip tea There is no TV in the rooms but there is one in the recreation area which has 2 TT tables( small and big), 2 carrom boards and chess boards .Swimming pool is small but well maintained .Wifi connectivity is excellant in all rooms There are walks with naturalists 4 times day including one for kids . we enjoyed a lot . The naturalists Jothis,omkar,danyaand manish have excellant knowledge and very friendly .Kids took a liking to them . Their 7 pm ppt session on various topics ( we attended birds, snakes and butterfies ) is very interesting and engaging Food was excellant throughout our stay .The spread was good and very tasty .They make it different everyday - buffet , pick and choose from alacarte . Last few meals we were specifically asked for what we liked and it was made for us . Chef Anashvar gave individual attention to all our preferences The staff in restaurant were excellant .Thanks to senior chef for the delicious food Everyone enquired about our comfort and eager to provide service whenever needed like packing food parcels to room ( room service not available ) for elderly parents and buggies to travel up and down from rooms . AGM Zakria enquired about our needs every now and then .The GM Mr David was there during our stay. He chatted with us and also had interesting talk about snakes . We bought the book written by him on wildlife in south india The hospitality at Wayanad wild is the best i have seen till now in a resort and it is also personalised care It is place we can go and relax .It will difficult to go for sightseeing everyday from there due to rough terrain to main road . Since our intention was to stay in and relax it was most suited . The walks , cookery talks and wildlife presentation will occupy you if interested. Leeches were there but you will get used to it and they provide protective covers for that during walks We would like to go back again whenever possible . Special kudos to Jothis and chef Anasvar for looking after and interacting with us like a family member I apologise if i have misspelt any of the names

This is a belated post since I visited wayanad in April but then got caught up with the trauma of the second wave and could not get down to penning this. but the brilliant memories of the resort deserve this post. The first thing that impresses you is the utmost care for sanitization, social distancing and covid protocols at the property. wayanad wild came up tops from the point we disembarked from our car on this front. we were traveling with our 80+ grandmother and their care and concern for her was touching including arranging for wheelchair to navigate the steep curves in the property and allowing food to be taken to the room for her even though the property has no room service this is a 100% sustainable resort with no plastic and dependence on renewable sources of energy. they also take care to introduce you to the local flora and fauna and have a naturalist take you on guided tour into the forests. the staff is friendly, respectful and accommodating. highly recommended for anyone planning a getaway in these times
