We seven families booked 8 AC tents in hornbill camp for stay on 12 February 22. Though theplace is excellent, good food and we did have fun in outdoor activities, the stay in tents without AC during daytime was horrible. We were told after check in that ac will be kept off from 6am to 12 noon and 4pm to 7 pm in evening which came as surprise. I recommend you book the resort only after ensuring AC is available round the clock. Management should display AC timings in website.
It was a wonderful experience for the whole family like Living close to the nature , getting to hear chirping of many different kinds of birds and kayaking in the reservoir water. Tents were clean and food served was homely kerala food. Manager Binet took good care of all guests requirement. Adjoining Dr Salim Ali BirdSanctuary, It’s actually a paradise for Bird watchers. Overall a lovely stay.
We stayed at Amritara hornbill camp from 27-29 Dec21. The tents are well sighted next to the lake with beautiful view and all modern amenities.the staff is courteous. Special thanks to Binet, Praveen and Binil for going the extra mile to make our stay memorable one. The food is great and the resort caters to needs of the kids. Our children aged 9&5 had a great time. An awesome place for bird watchers as the property and nearby areas are full of different species. Binet and Praveen are birding guides as well and helped us with spotting various birds Memorable stay.
We went to Horn bill camp from our company for the yearly team outing as a one day trip. They offered the below adventures. 1.A Bow & Arrow 2.A Dart Board 3.Frisbee(Flying Disc) 4.Kayaking 5.Badminton 6.Cycling 7.Tug of War 8.Cricket They Organized the Tug of war for us. 3 Kayaking boats were available and we utilized in rotation. We were offered lunch and should be a special mention that it was great. The Manager Suresh and Team were great. Special mention to the Kayaking person who have to take extra effort in bringing back 2 persons who were not paddling properly. Couple of improvement areas. If possible, 1.They should allocate separate area for badminton court and cricket with proper nets 2. Can introduce new games possibly like Paintball. Regardless of the above this place is worth for a day out for a gang.…
A very nice place to just relax and relieve stress . Clean and neat property. They serve you very tasty and homely food. The property is looked after by a group of young men , who are very good at taking care of all your requirements. Rain during our stay was an additional bonus. Would love visit again.....
HORNBILL camp is an excellent choice for your holidays. Good hospitality by caretaker Mr Bennet and team. Good place for kids. Ambient space for activities and leisure. Looking forward to visit back again..
It’s a basic but nice property on the side of the river and close to nature. The food is good and the main attraction was the hospitality by the manager Binet. He made sure we are comfortable and attended to all our requests. He single handedly runs the whole show including cooking, room service, entertaining guests, story telling and what not. Plan to go there again during the kayaking season and hope to meet Binet again
A perfect riverside place blend into the nature with 20 Tents having spectacular view of Periyar River. The tents are good in sizes and comfortable too. The food was excellent and hospitality was at its best. Seriously if you are into offbeat locations in a natural atmosphere, then Amritara Hornbill camp is the perfect place to be. On the whole it was an amazing experience.
We stayed in Amritara hornbill camp in December 2020 for 2 nights. The accommodation was very comfortable also food is very good. This resorts very good for nature lover. It's situated close to the famous bird sanctuary.
It was my personal visit to Kerala on a family tour. Thank god I landed to Amritara Hornbill camp, Thatteked. It is located near kochi perfectly blend into nature with 20 niche tent rooms with own jungle and spectacular view of Periyar river. Another thing I liked about this place is that it is near Dr. Salim Ali bird sanctuary. Tents with pre heated water geysers. Gazebo is the place where food is served. It is 360 degree open sit out. To keep oneself involved the camp provides archery, kayaks , cycling and many more.
