I was biking my way to Kannur & had to stop around Palakkad, the road was really bad between Avinashi & Coimbatore and also between Coimbatore and the Kerala border. A sore rear-end was the theme of the day...
Decided to turn left to check out the Malampuzha Dam & after liking the tranquility of the spot decided to sleep there rather than go into Palakkad town. This resort is nice, a big (30m²) double bed room with own hot water shower for 1000rp without AC, 1500rp with (april 2012).
Very clean by indian standards. Got a nice welcome gift pouch with all kinds of toiletry stuff & a small hand towel. This is not a single building type place, more like a few separate villas cut up into individual rooms all around a nice pond garden. It is maybe 20 mins walking to the dam, 3 by bike.
Staff very helpful and genuinely eager to make my stay as nice as they could, watchman to manager alike. Kudos.
Next to it there's a Bar & Restaurant, sufficiently away from the resort part, food was OK, nothing special. Oh and they have generators, for lights & fans.
All in all and for the price a nice place to rest after a day's biking and even as a weekend getaway from the city.
