We stayed here for three nights in December 2017 with our four kids. The stay started out nightmarish with a small car picking us up as at the airport, imagine a family of six+luggage sqeezed in a small Duster for an almost five hour drive from Kochin in the middle of the night.

We didn't stay in the hotel, but ate lunch here three times during our stay in Kumily. Food and service were excellent throughout. Try ginger chicken, chicken 65 or any of the vegetable dishes. Highly recommended.

Hello Team, I would like to have full details regarding the stay along with sites to visit. What will be the arrival time & how can I plan a stay for 1/2 nights stay in Thekkady ? Awaiting for your reply, thanks in advance. Regards, Sagar
Dear Sir, We thank for your inquiry regarding our property, Hotel Ambadi. Hotel Ambadi is on the edge of Periyar wildlife sanctuary giving you the best chance to explore Thekkady. It is Kerala's first themed heritage resort where you can cherish tranquil moments of communion with Nature for ever. We have 43 rooms across three different categories offering varying levels of comfort, all tastefully furnished in traditional style with 24 hour check out. You can also enjoy the various cuisines on offer in our restaurant Aditi, our delectable food is bound to be any gourmet's delight. Our friendly staff will make sure that you have a pleasant stay with us and will even help you organise various trips, like boating, elephant ride, spice plantation visit, bamboo rafting, trekking, Kathakali demonstration etc. You can also have sight seeing trips to Gavi, Chellarkovil, Ramakkalmedu, Mangaladevi Temple and also plan to visit near by tourist locations like Munnar, Peermade, Kumarakom, Alleppey, Kochi and Madurai. Although you will enjoy the enchanting features of our property and Thekkady all through out the year, but the ideal time to visit us would September to March, when you can enjoy greenery without the accompanying rains. If you are a bird watcher, this also the time to spot migrant birds. Summer (March to May) though hot, is also good for wildlife spotting. When water gets low and the grass dries out, animals, especially elephants come down to the Periyar lake to bath and frolic in the waters along with young ones. June to August is best suited for monsoon tourism, to enjoy torrential rains of these tropical forests. Above all you can enjoy shopping Kerala rich spices like Cardamom, Pepper, Clove, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Mace, Tea and Coffee.

"Ask for rooms in the new part, as some rooms are really old and shabby."
"If you can climb stairs, prefer upper floor rooms since they have a parking inside and it will trouble you if you are in your balcony."
"5 mins walk from the town centre, however plenty of shops etc where the hotel was situated"
"Deluxe room on 1st floor with Balcony is better"
"Upper floor rooms with balcony view."
