We stayed for 3 days. First thing that comes to my mind about my experience is amazing service. I would rate it one of the best in terms of service. Food, specially soups were great. We could choose whatever wanted have for all 3 meals. We have small kids with us and anything we wanted for them was provided. There... More

Visited Kodaikanal and stayed at fern creek for 2 nights. The location is interior and that's why very calm. The staff is courteous and nice. Breakfast and dinner are nice. Kids enjoyed the place. Overall nice experience.

Visited for the second time. Excellent South Indian food, very friendly staff, well maintained Swiss tent (honeymoon suite). Unlike the last time it was pleasant weather during the entire stay. Improvements from the last visit are noteworthy. An ideal place for couples wishing to spend time together.

Firstly this property is absolutely unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. The narrow steps with no handrails, the uneven flagstones one has to navigate to get to one's tent and the awkwardness of the tent itself. The interior is small and packed with bits of furniture that makes for difficulty in navigating around. The narrow slit between the tent proper... More

The tents were really awesome. Kids loved it. And the place was really well made up with greenery all around. The people were very hospitable. Only issue was that the tents were fully booked when we went and the buffet timing was a bit delayed. However, to compensate, they supplied separate food for my two and half year old. Even... More

We stayed at the Ferncreek for 3 nights and loved the place. Just 7 tents in the midst of 1.5 acres of beautiful flower and fruit trees.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Untouched and raw, The Fern Creek is a haven for all who yearn for a break. The ambiance is comfortable and refreshing filled with the aroma of eucalyptus, lilies and pines. Designed for utmost privacy, our 7 Swiss luxury tented villas are spread across 1.5 acres of landscaped garden. The in-room amenities are equivalent to a 5 star resort. The property as a whole has plenty to offer to meet your expectations/moods; even more, our all inclusive packages will save you the effort of tying up the loose ends of a holiday. The Balinese spa run by Indonesian Nationals offers the best of international therapies. For the incurably romantic, or the terribly laid back or even the complete workaholic who needs a reason to celebrate – The Fern Creek offers something for each and everyone. The Fern Creek is a holiday waiting to be discovered. Always fresh, one with nature, come and enjoy the glory of life. Welcome to The Fern Creek. ... more   less
