“Awesome Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

This is a cool and best property to visit in Kerala. They have a good private plantation and a small dam. Boat ride in the dam is cool. Visited their cardamom factory. Time spend in the swimming pool at night was awesome.

It was the best resort, but only thing missing was the a/c.
everything else was just perfect
the rooms were so big and nicely made, but afternoons were hot and unbearable. it they could just put a a/c it would be uncomparable
their plantation was great.
the swimming pool was not clean. may be becos of off season
they have a open shower option in the cottage but useless, since there are small stones which hurt and there is a tree right in middle of the area, and it had only cold water option. and it was a very small cubicle, they need to do something abt that open shower area.
the food was good.
full marks to the old man playing flute every morning near the reception
but beware, this place is 25 KMS AWAY FROM THEKKADY.
so, be there if u have a vehicle at your door step.
the indoor games room was just ok ok

Room Tip: Deluxe cottage room

This was one of the best property I have visited during my trip to kerala. We were late due to strike called by some union and were almost on the verge of cancelling the booking, but then some how we reached there and had an wonderful experience.

I felt that should have booked a room at this resort and from here travel to various locations in Thekkady. That way could have enjoyed the resort experience and also thekkady.

Overnight stay at honeymoon cottage surrounded by tea plantation.

Neeraj

Room Tip: Honeymoon cottages are good option if planning for honeymoon.

We had visited this place with absolutely no idea about it. We had booked a Deluxe Cottage. It was really fantastic. The atmosphere around the cottages was excellent. More than the atmosphere, it was the HOSPITALITY that was offered makes me cherish this place even more than many others. The support staff were really nice to the guests. Everyone was given equal importance & that made the trip more pleasant. The staffs really made a deep impression on the guests with their humble approach. A few to name were Vipin - A very down to earth guy(Reception), Bipin / Nitesh (Resturant), Vinesh (Jeep Driver). This guy vinesh really entertains the guests a lots with his awesome driving. Hats off to this man for his nerve trickling drive during the Jeep Safari.
Special mention about Cubix Holidays who had organized this trip for us. I would like to recommend Cubix holidays for any future trips. Try your turn guys!!!!

Room Tip: I really enjoyed the Deluxe cottage adjacent to the reception guys. Try if possible.

A beautiful resort sorrounded by spices and tea gardens.I stayed for a night with my family and were welcomed with a small drizzle and heavy clouds.Freindly staff greeted us and a typical Indian classic dance programm made our evening pleasant followed by rich dinner.Rooms,cottages and tree cottages in a lush green layers are really admirable.
