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. This transpired to be a mistake as we popped in on this place for afternoon tea on passing after a forest trek. We were offered...

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...

Thank you for that review.As our name suggests we are a bed and breakfast property and we do not have lunch or dinner options.The idea is that the guest has the freedom to step out for the same and our staff will guide you to different options close by.Will look into the other valuable inputs.

We loved staying here. For once, it was just bed and breakfast which meant we had to find somewhere to eat in the evenings. The staff are lovely. So helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to provide a really late breakfast for us after our soft safari in Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary (where we saw wild elephants!!) We...
