One of the best experiences in terms of hotel. The staff, the management, the hotel are all 5/5. Humble, obliged and very helpful. I was travelling with my 19th Months baby and the hotel staff took atmost care of him in terms of food requirements and safety. Overall a must visit place. Mr. Varghese, the hotel in charge was very much in control of the entire management.

Hotel's Favourite
I had come in to the cardamom county with a bitter experience with a resort that I had stayed in for the previous day at a nearby tourist destination. Coming into cardomom county was a breath of fresh air. The atmosphere at the resort was very welcoming and the property was so in touch with nature. I also had the rare chance of seeing a wild squirrel making an olympic sort of a jump from one tree to the other within the premises. The cottage that we stayed in was very well maintained. I would like to give commend the management for the well trained and polite staff at the resort. Their service was very prompt and on point. I had a toddler along with me and the staff were very playful with him and took care of him very well. Needless to say, he also had a very good time over there. I would like to appreciate Tanya and the rest of the team for making our stay a very pleasant one..

Great location as Periyar park is opposite hotel and bus that takes you into park is just 200 metres up the road. Hotel is well equipped and rooms are modern and contemporary and well maintained. Monkeys can be cheeky so watch out when leaving anything on balconies! Popular with western tourists. Restaurant caters for all nationalities. Best freshly cooked dosas for breakfast. Staff super helpful and rang park after lost my glasses and didn't even book our trip through hotel.

We stayed in 6 hotels in Kerela and this was my favourite. A charming little hotel tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town, but easy walking distance to local amenities, we could even walk to the Periyar wildlife sanctuary. Monkeys make a regular inquisitive visit to hotel verandas and into your room if you leave the door open! That said, they are not a nuisance at all. The staff here were superb, particularly the restaurant staff who remembered our tea and coffee order after only 1 day. The buffet food was excellent and the afternoon tea by the pool was the best we experienced. Even the coffee was drinkable which is saying something for hotels in Kerela. The yoga studio was inspiring, watching the monkeys watching you exercising is something quite special. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped (even a bottle opener on the back of the bathroom door), although some people might view them as getting a bit tired. Like most hotels in Kerela, they could do with a bit more shaded area by the pool and there were a limited number of Sun beds. This hotel won’t be everyone’s favourite but is was certainly mine.

This was one of the larger hotels that we stayed in on our tour of Kerala but it can still be commended for providing a personal service. The room was clean and functional with a lovely outdoor seating area. Don't leave anything on the porch as will be thieved by the naughty monkeys! Fresh drinking water was provided ( love the initiative to reduce plastic bottle use) The breakfast and evening meals were plentiful and really tasty with an option of buffet style or al a carte. They also serve complimentary afternoon tea and indian snacks by the pool every day. The grounds of the hotel are lovely and there is a large pool and a spa offering massage services. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area and the National Park is on your doorstep. There are also shops in the area and spice farm tours. The area felt safe to walk around and everyone we met were really respectful and welcoming . The staff on the hotel were lovely. I would highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

Cardamom county Thekkady is an excellent resort to spend time with the family. It's like a resort in the lush green forest. An excellent place for people who love to be with nature.and looking fir peace and tranquility.The ambience, location, hospitality of the entire staff ,food and the cleanliness is amazing. The architecture of the entire property is breathtaking. Mr. Varghese is an amazing manager who personally monitors each guests comfort.Xmas celebration and program by the artist was awesome. This property is just next to the Periyar Tiger reserve which makes it a perfect place to go on vacations. I would sincerely recommend cardamom county for a memorable and a fun filled vacation.
