"Good hotel to stay with beautiful view "

Posted 18 Nov, 2015

The hotel is bang in front of the Edakkal Caves with various rooms and cottages spread across a steep incline. The room I stayed in had a beautiful view of the green valley and a little secluded (away from the main hotel building). Given the slightly spread out layout, the service takes a bit of time but the staff is friendly and helpful. There are lots of places to see in the vicinity, which makes this a great weekend getaway. While I went on work and travelled single, this could be a great place for couples as well.

"A great weekend getaway!"

Posted 5 Nov, 2015

A little distance from Bangalore, this is a really good option for a weekend getaway. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff is friendly. The food is above average. The approach road is very steep and winding however and unless you are not careful you might miss the car parking. Prepare for leeches if you cone during the rains.

"Tranquil stay place amidst nature"

Posted 18 Sep, 2015

I visited Wayanad last week with my friends. I chose Edakkal hermitage for a stay of two days. This hotel has superb surrounding, to enjoy the song of serenity, it's a great place to stay. You can get a picturesque surrounding there. Rooms are well and good as per my expectations. Food is also good, especially parotta with green peas masala. Being a nature lover, I must visit Wayanad again and would stay in Edakkal Hermitage.

"Great stay amidst of nature at Wayanad"

Posted 26 May, 2015

We, family of 4 visited Wayanad district last weekend. We got suggestion by many friends, as there are not many great places to see around, so instead going for tiresome spots, pick a better hotel and enjoy the stay. So after so many filtration and personal choice, I booked this hotel. We got it at a very reasonable rate too. Early morning we started from Bangalore and reached this spot in around 6-7 hours. On the way, you will hardly see any advertisement of this hotel. But you will feel prestige when you reach Edakkal caves. Cave parking men and security guard would stop you to park, but as soon you tell them that you have a booking at Edakkal hermitage, they will smile at you and say, you may come inside and go straight up this road! Amenities are not the one you should choose for because their huts have well architecture that you will fall in love with. The view from room is astonishing! You may even sit in the room, open curtains, and enjoy the view. We were offered chauvet and Lascaux huts, which offers great architecture and view. We even sat on a big rock opposite of the huts for a whole evening watching nature. For adoring all this beauty, what one need is love for nature. Geeky people may not like this place as there are no TVs in a room, no wifi and network and blah blah. Best thing is their Dinner in a cave who everyone would love it. It comes with the uniqueness and tasty food. Hats off to the hospitality of Sijin and Lins. These people are nicest and very helpful. Overall great hotel to feel rich Indian heritage and uniqueness of this hotel.

"After reading up on a list of hotels and the facil..."

Posted 19 Aug, 2008

After reading up on a list of hotels and the facilities available, we decided to book our weekend stay from Aug 8 – 10 at Edakkal Hermitage Resort. Bookings done, and all in place we reached a little after 2 pm on a overcast afternoon after a 6 hour drive from Bangalore. As soon as we reached the gates of the resorts, 2 members from the staff immediately came up and helped us with our luggage and escorted us to the reception. After the preliminaries, we were chaperoned to our room which was a secluded cottage (amongst the 8, with us staying at the \'Kapova\'), and our luggage was already in the room. The verandah of the cottage was washed and clean, so was the room. A tony room with just about enough space and fixtures sans television was a relieving experience. Within minutes we were back at the café for our late lunch – a sumptuous meal which was made as endearingly as you would feel when you visit your native home, complete with dessert. The staff was extremely amiable, and ensured we had our meal to our content; we were presumably the last set of people that afternoon. Very soon it started raining and we were back in our room for the rest of the evening. As soon as the rain subsided we chatted with the manager – Roopesh, an affable and very forthcoming young lad in his early twenties with information on all places to visit during our stay. Since the trek to Edakkal caves was ruled out due to the rain for the day, he suggested we visit it the next day with a trip to the Mathanga wildlife sanctuary. He also recommended we spend time at the club house for the evening till dinner was served. The meal was as satisfying as the lunch with a mix of vegetarian and non vegetarian delicacies - we were so full not just with the food but also with bonhomie staff, we could barely walk back to our room. The café is kept clean, tidy and the buffet well laid out with utmost attention to hygiene. After we came back from our trek to Edakkal caves the next day, we again took suggestions from Roopesh for our day’s program, which included a trip to the Mathanga wildlife sanctuary. With barely any animals to view due to the rains except cheetals, wild deer, boar we were back to the hermitage resort. That evening’s dinner was one of most cherishable evenings we spent in candle light which is in a cave under a huge rock, with well laid out table and candles all around us in the cave. It couldn’t get more romantic than that! As we eagerly looked forward to the food, we couldn’t wait to finish the sumptuous dinner with delicious fish, chicken curry and many other mouth watering dishes. The staff also courteously left us alone to savour the moment with candles around us in the dark – an absolutely brilliant rendezvous that the resort has re-created.

"Awesome stay with good nourishments "

Posted 23 Jul, 2015

The individuals at the resort are exceptionally well talked and to a great degree proficient. Sustenance was radiant, an unquestionable requirement would on the off chance that you like to visit, this spot is the supper at the hole. For 600 a piece it is an ordeal that you will appreciate for an existence time. The resort by itself can be extremely boisterous amid the day, the spot is great. The move to the memorable hole can be burdened however is justified regardless of the exertion. Supper at the hole an unquestionable requirement on the off chance that you are going to this place, it's totally great. Nourishment without a doubt can undoubtedly contend with home-made sustenance, say it the breakfast, night snacks or the supper (Thanks to the cook). Supreme worth for cash, streets to achieve the resort had no issues by any stretch of the imagination, parking spot was accessible, 3G versatile information was accessible the distance till we came to the resort so had no issues utilizing Google maps for help, near to Edakkal hollows which is one of the must visit puts in Wayanad. Without a doubt I would return to this spot and prescribed for explorers.

Posted 29 Oct, 2006

Wayand is probably the best place to watch the rains. It was towards the end of monsoons and the entire area was a lush green, the climate was superb and the bird calls were aplenty. Since the resort is at a height, you get a birds eye view of the villages and towns below.
