Well maintained property with spacious room and balcony. The landscape is another wonderful feature which takes us closer to the nature. I spend most of the time in the property enjoying the serene atmosphere. The pool is good and so is the activity centre and the health club. Staff are very well trained. Especially the front office staff Ms. Dheeya , Ms. Neeraja and Mr. Alan who gave me a warm welcome and farewell during my outing.

My Husband and I were on a short trip to Kerela in the city of Thekkady. We had one of the best time of our life. The Hotel was so traditional, luxurious, clean, spacious and filled with Green herbal trees with a gorgeous feeling of being close to forest. Beautiful birds and monkeys around in nature. The staff were very professional, courteous and polite, specially Abhijit Baidya who took great care of us. We shared great views of life’s experiences and social culture of Kerela. The food was excellent. Hotel served a huge variety of fusion as well as traditional authentic cuisines. I highly recommend this hotel.

It was a good experience, the vibe of the place was good. The food served in a la carte was good but the breakfast buffet was really bad. The quality and taste wasn’t up to the mark. The staff was cordial and welcoming. There was a pool too but not that big.
