I had booked 2 rooms for 2 nights for our stay from 19th-21st May. This place is just 7mins by rick (@Rs30) from the kumily bus stand. The location is very convenient & centrally located close to the main bazar. The ambience is just perfect - Its a quaint lil place maybe just 8-10rooms. The rooms are so tidy &...

Though the property might not be huge yet its an ideal option to stay if you're not looking for a resort. This B&B place does come with some of the trappings of a good quality resort viz. gracious staff, very spacious rooms, very clean and quiet property, rooms and bathroom are very clean, well maintained. The staff are very courteous,...

It is a national park, so has to be organised, but the feeling is that the whole town is just too geared up for tourists: it is the first thing that the hotel proposes... tours! We actually missed out on the lake, because the hotel wasn't clear about times. There are no tea making facilities in the room that would...

We visited as part of a 4 weeks holiday. This was week 3. The hotel is lovely to look at and tranquil. Very green with a jack fruit tree in the middle. Our room was enormous with its own private balcony which we sat on in the monsoon and also watched 5 baby monkeys playing on it. The bathroom was...

The Wildernest is a tastefully done property in ethnic style near the entrance of the Periyar National Park. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. They have a cafe that serves breakfast and tea/coffee. Since they don't have a restaurant there is no room service and you need to go to other restaurants for lunch and dinner. This is not a...

Cool, clean, simple accommodation in Thekkady itself. Lovely breakfast. Drinks and cake available during the day. Many restaurants in easy walking distance. The staff were delightful! But the beds are TERRIBLE, like sleeping on a barn door.

My wife and I booked our accommodation in Kumily / Thekkady via booking.com. This hotel came up as an option but the photos were poor and there were no reviews yet. So we went elsewhere.

Calm place, things were simple but what was offered was good quality. The bedrooms were huge. If they had more comfortable chairs it would have been the perfect place to rest from traveling. Despite heavy rain they managed to get our laundry done efficiently.

For some reason I expected this hotel to be set in grounds and was surprised when it is on the roadside. This is not a problem though because you enter the open reception/breakfast area to a garden area with a Jack fruit tree as the focal point and all the rooms built around it. The rooms are very large and...
