I have to emphasize, the service was outstanding. Alan went out of his way to accommodate my needs during these COVID-19 days, always maintaining the protocol. The rooms are clean, tidy and spacious, with a picturesque view of jungle and misty mountains. The resort is in a perfect location for all activities in one's Thekkady itinerary. Unfortunately, due to self-quarantine, my stay was within the confines of the beautiful room. I can't wait to come back to this elegant resort with my family.

Elephant Route is in the prime area and close to all the activities in Thekkady. The size of the room we were given was pretty big with a balcony having a nice view. The room was very quiet and clean. We also liked the welcoming attitude of the staff. The breakfast was good. The main factor is it's location. It is very near to all the activities such as Martial Arts, Kathakali dance, Elephant tour and also Periyar Lake. We had a very pleasant stay here.

The best and very quite hotel. Almost all the important theaters just 5 minutes from the property. Food is excellent and service is at top. My voucher had two room bookings but the manager gave us three rooms as it was available. The place is very quite and interiors are charming. The welcome they had given is really a good one. Recommended for stay in Thekkedy.

A nice place to stay, rooms are cleaned, spacious and well maintained. The staffs welcomed us in a traditional way and are very friendly and helpful. It's very near by to the Periyar Forest. The food they served was really good, mix of North and South Indian. No complaints, worth visiting. We had a lovely stay here. Maintain the hygiene. Thank you!

The hotel is next to the elephant centre & Thekkady Kathakali centre and had good comfortable rooms. The staff were very polite and offered excellent service. Be aware of monkeys though which are a plenty around. Had to keep the balcony doors closed as once a group of monkeys came and ate our food

It was a quick plan to visit Thekkady. In a hurry, we've booked rooms and went there in the night. Slept off peacefully after a quick shower. Next morning I woke up seeing the best of nature in front of me. I've shared the pix in my verified handles. I stayed back in my room, watching the beauty of nature through my balcony. Such a scenic place to put the resort. Loved every moment of the stay there. Friendly staff, Tasty and Ethnic Cuisine, Blessed with the beauty of mother earth, Calm, Quiet, So serene... What else could you ask for more?

The first impression of the resort is awesome considering the location and the outlook. It is situated right beside the elephant camp and the cultural activity centre. The reception area was very welcoming and beautifully decorated. We were offered welcome drinks on arrival. Our room was on the first floor and the view from the balcony was very nice with the kathakali centre in front bordered by the hills behind. The room was quite big and spacious for three of us. It was clean and very comfortable. The lobby was long and nice and beautiful paintings depicting the Mahabharata were present all along the walls. There were monkeys all around the resort which I found pretty entertaining. The complimentary breakfast was good with several options for a heavy breakfast. However I would recommend the addition of fruit juice in the menu. Overall a very comfortable and pleasant stay.

Dear Guest , Greetings from Elephant Route !! We thank you for staying with us and spending time to give us a feedback. Our website is www.elephantroute.com we haven't added any photos which are not related to us or any facilities which are not in our hotel. We dont even get a vague idea how much customers are spending for a room as the bookings are coming from third parties, please do contact us when you are in Kerala for next time so that we will be able to provide you good rates too.. We request you to please recheck the website you have checked while booking the room. We thank you once again for choosing us for your stay in Thekkady
