I had been to Thekkady(Periyar) during the month of January 2017 and booked the room in the Eletaria Resort. It was my holiday trip with family. The destination Thekkady(Periyar) was excellent. I would rate the location as very good because it is at main center. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as very good. I would rate the front desk staff as very good as they are friendly and provided correct information. I booked this hotel via travel agencies. I would rate the services in the hotel were very good with immediate response. The hotel room was good. The hotel food was average.
We were in this resort for 2N3D . . 1. They kept us waiting for 30 minutes because they didn't know which cottage to accommodate us in! They gave us Tree House saying that cottages are all full, which we initially thought was a good deal. But it was a tacky one with cobwebs near the bed, no TV cable, very congested 2. The food, I better not say anything! Leave north Indian, they cannot dish out a decent south Indian meal. No choice in Buffet as well 3. Their excuse being that their staff is on holiday! So my question is why are they functioning like this when you are having a Full House 4. Next day when we shifted to cottage, it was refreshing, though hot water is not available their post 8. 00 a. M. Still no TV. 5. For a double occuopancy they give a single blanket, and on asking why so, the lady in charge rudely talks back saying " I will send over, that's it"! Though I was furious at their callous behaviour, I kept my cool 6. They fret over room service as well asking for the flask back in 30 minutes sayingthat they don't have enough! LoL. 7. Same cultural activity, every evening which is boring for stay over guests. 8. Not much facility provided in the resort. 9. The property is huge and peaceful, but need to be utilized well. Paying 13k for this stay was a huge loss as we just wanted to get over the stay and head back home.
Stay for even one day in Eletaria Resort during my trip to Kerala was a experience in itself. The resort is situated about 30 km before Thekkady on the road from Munnar to Thekkady. Go on seeing the sign boards, you might miss it I stayed with my family in February 2015. We were amazed and mesmerized to see the beautiful scenic natural green surroundings. Initially I was skeptical about the place as I couldn't see many guests. The manager and the skeletal support staff was very courteous polite and helpful. The manager upgraded our room. There is ample parking space with facilities for the drivers too. There were spices (mainly Elaichi) grown in and around the resort. One of the staff took us to a tour of the garden The rooms were spacious, very neat and clean, and so was the bathroom. We had a common balcony in front of the room to enjoy the scenery. There was a swimming pool too but nonfunctional at that time. The nights were really cool. You should ask for extra blankets. At night we could hear melodious devotional songs coming from a nearby temple. In the morning there was mist and fog everywhere to make it look like a haunted mesmerizing place The dining area was spacious but the food and the breakfast lacked variety and taste more so to us from North. We have to order 30-45 minutes before as it is prepared on order only Just remember there is no market place or shops nearby. Take everything you need from Munnar or Thekkday only. No other recreation facility was available at that time in the resort. There are some tree houses too with beautiful view of the resort Most Kerala trips are Cochin (1 night), Munnar ( 2 night), Thekkady ( 1 night), Alleppey (1 night), Kovalam (1 night), Kanyakumari (1 night). So was ours, but I recommend at least two night stay in Eletaria Resort. This way you will be able to enjoy the scenic beauty of this place. So make the plan to stay in Munnar for one night only and start from Munnar on the second afternoon (about 4 pm) and reach this resort in 2 hours. Stay here and then proceed for Periyar the next day and come back for another night stay. (Though you have to travel back to this resort (30 km) from Thekkady but worth the effort.
The hotel was very nice and beautiful. Rooms were very clean and room service was quick. There is a swimming pool, table tennis and carom for other activities. Had great time in hotel. Breakfast menu was good The hotel manager helped us in deciding where to go and what to leave. His suggestions was worth. Thanks to him we had some great time in Thekkady. Otherwise I feel Thekkady is very overrated tourist places. Big no for youngsters and fun loving people.
Very calm place. Full of natural beauty. Garden is full of multiple type of flowers. Lots of butterfly. Neat and clean room. The staff was little bit lazy in terms of serving food. Food was very expensive. They really need to work of their hospitality as well as the quality of food.
The hotel was far from the city, it is not easy to find the hotel. The appearance of the hotel was good, the rooms were spacious, neat, clean maintained. The room had all basic facilities and amenities was in good working condition. There was no view of the garden from the room. The service of the staff was friendly cooperative. The quality of food was good had both varieties of veg and non-veg facilities were available, it was hygienic and tasty. They should improve the hotel because it was like a lonely place. The hotel management should give advertise about the hotel. So the people can come to the hotel. The hotel was not having the swimming pool facility. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The hotel was value for money.
