We had an excellent stay at the fern creek. Unique concept of staying in tents. Amazing ambience, great hospitality (special mention for Siva, Zavier and Parthiban). The food was tasty and it was made according to our preference. Enjoyed the camp fire, candle light dinner and the picnic. Will definitely recommend it to friends and family!

We had a good stay at this place. Food was Excellent. Service was also good. Since the rooms were put up in tents, we could hear people talking outside the tent during night, which was disturbing. Otherwise a good place to stay.

The Fern Creek is a unique property with rooms put up in tents which are spread through the property. It looks unique but once you step into the room it's like a normal luxury hotel room. The rooms have all amenities. They serve food at the main building. Recommend to have breakfast in the sun on the lawns! The food...

Amazing experience as I was worried after the first night experience of bitter cold in a tent (first time in my life) than a normal room. But the entire staff from Shiva (front desk), Parthiban (chef), his assistants Raja, Ritchie and one another are ever smiling and always waiting to go the extra mile. hs I have never felt safe...
