A short and sudden trip to Thekkady and decided to book Abad Green Forest. Been to other locations before and hence Abad. A decent size property in the middle of the town. There are lodge rooms and cottages. We stayed in a room with a balcony with a pool side view. We were advised not to keep the balcony door open due to monkey menace in our absence from the room. The reception was good and offered us a welcome drink. There was ample parking space. The pool is a play pool and not for serious swiming. The food was pretty decent. they had good breakfast spread. The room service was fast. Not much activity available inside the resort. Overall it was a short and pleasant getaway for us.

Had a pleasant stay at the end of December, this accommodation is centrally located and close to tourist hotspots, cleanliness could be improved and for the price bathroom amenities like shower gel, creams etc could be of better quality. Food in the restaurant is good, restaurant staff are kind and hospitable.

To start with the positives - location of the hotel is the best part. it is close to everything - the safari bus stand is barely 200m walk…so is the traditional Kerala dance performance centre. The food at the hotel is very good - the best that we tried in Kerala. Now comes the negatives- the room. I booked through Agoda and I was given a very shabby cottage - inspite of booking 3 months in advance. While you get to see spacious airy photos of rooms in their website, we are given a cottage at shabby dark corner of the property. The room is poorly maintained with stained mirror in the washroom, cracked basin, with water stains in all over the bathing place. The linen on the bed is wrinkled and not ironed. The chair upholstery is stained. There is no hot water in the washroom also for which we had to complain. Will I come back at Thekkady - YES! Will I stay at Abad Green Forest - a big NO. Will I recommend the hotel to anyone - absolutely NO for staying; but YES for lunch and dinner.

I would rate our stay at Abad Green Forest at Thekkady the best among all Hotels/Resorts we stayed during our trip to Kerala. I loved the Kerala cuisine served at their Restaurant, which was authentic in taste. Hence I skipped the regular buffet lunch/dinner for à la carte. The variety offered in their buffet breakfast is awesome that includes local Kerala delicacies as well. The rooms though not very spacious were luxurious. The service was super-fast including the room service. The location of this Resort is at a walkable distance from the Periyar Forest Reserve main gate as well as the Kadathanadan Kalari & Navarasa Kathakali Centre of Arts. Though the rooms are at a distance from the Reception, there is an option to either use the steps or a paved pathway. Overall the stay at this Resort was comfortable and I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Thekkady.

Room and view are good. Hotel is next to market but surrounded by greenery and has restful atmosphere. Tv in room was not working, cable was intermittent when tv finally started working. Staff is not very efficient, needs training and supervising. But manager was efficient and helpful.

We stayed in May 2022 with my family. The place is in heart of Kumily town but without any disturbances. The property is good. Room service, behavior of staff, location, ambience, amenities like swimming pool all good. We really enjoyed the break fast they served. Recommended for family for calm and peaceful stay.

Wife and I stayed for 2 nights (4-6 May) in Jungle Lodge room (#302). The room was very spacious, clean, had a glass wall facing a spacious balcony with adequate privacy. Bathroom was clean and spacious. Bed was large and comfortable. There were enough supplies (like Tea, sugar, milk) and Toiletries (like Soap, Shampoo, Shaving kit etc.). The room had proper storage, study table, mini refrigerator and a sofa cum bed. Jungle rooms dont have AC, however we did not need an AC either. The staffs we interacted with were ready to help, courteous and respectful. We also liked the food in the restaurant. Food items were priced reasonably, and breakfast spread was different on two days which was good. The location of the resort is ideal for visiting the Periyar National park (Bus ticket counter is just 200 mts. away) and other attractions in Kumily and also for shopping. One can find everything in walkable distance. The resort does not have a bar and does not serve alcohol, however, guests can bring their own and consume inside their rooms. Inside the resort, there is not much open space to walk around, however, we loved the way resort utilized the space and put amenities like swimming pool, garden area, game room, spa etc. To reach jungle rooms, even though they have lifts, still it might be bit challenging for people with walking difficulties, they may choose cottages which would be easier to walk to. Only con if I can mention would be there is no mountain or nature view from the Jungle rooms or may be from any rooms in the resort because of its location within the city. But that does not undervalue the property for so much they have to offer at pretty reasonable price.

Abad Green Forest is ideally located being in the centre of Kumily Town. Ticket counter to major tourist attractions is few metres away from the Hotel. The staff is extremely courteous,they are always eager to help under the leadership of Sujit (manager). The in-store boutique Women's heaven has a good collection of curios and ethnic kashmiri Kurtis. To sum it up, staying at this resort was a wonderful experience,will visit agin in the near future.
