Relaxing and romantic destination for a stay

Posted 13 Nov, 2015

Thekkady is a very cool and romantic place. Known for its spices gardens, dark chocolates and off course a relaxing Kerelai massage. The Abad Green Resort offers a comfortable and soothing stay experience. Food quality is also awesome and moreover hotel staff are very cooperative. I remember the receptionist provided us her own umbrella for use when they (hotel staffers) found the umbrella, provided in the room is broken and arrangement at that hour is not possible. Also do not forget to have a boat ride in Periyar River amidst jungle. Wishing all the trip planners a pleasant stay loaded with beautiful memories! !

Really green resort for stay

Posted 15 Dec, 2015

It is located very near to Periyar tiger reserve. Nice resort with full of greenery. Ambience is very good. Rooms were good with a balcony, but the interior was little damp, patches of fungus was there in the ceiling may be due to lack of maintenance. Road to the room is uphill, may cause problem for the aged people. Food was tasty.

Excellent location & well-maintained property

Posted 27 May, 2016

The location of the property is excellent. Property is very well-maintained and services are also excellent. We had stayed there for 2 nights. On the first day, we had some problem with our food taste but as we talked with cook for our selection of menu and taste they matched up to our expectations. Moreover, it is near to Periyar Lake Jungle Safari. I would suggest anyone visiting Thekkady to stay at the said property.

Beautifully decorated amongst abundance of greens

Posted 22 Oct, 2013

We visired Thekdey after Munnar and it was quite a transformation from the mild chill of Munnar to the hot sun of the Thekdey valley. The hotel though took all the pain away of the long journey downhill. Beautifully decorated amongst an abundance of greenery to somehow give you a forest feel. The rooms are designed like cottages which kind of gives you the feeling you are staying in a jungle lodge. The interiors are nice and organised. Bathroom was quite big and well furnished. Plenty of space to move around. There was a veranda attached as well with a clean view of the hotel surroundings. We didnt have time for the pool but we took a stroll around it in the morning. Food served is only buffet but nice. A little expensive though. Overall a nice stay and would recommend it for sure.

Good Facility with Awesome Staff

Posted 28 Mar, 2017

I visited the THAKKAR last year in the month of December it’s a holiday trip. I like everything in this hotel. The room was very good. The food was very hygienic and tasty. The hotel facility was very good. The hotel location was also very good and it’s nearby the café. Swimming pull was there in the hotel, but we didn't use it. The Wi-Fi signal problem was there. I have booked this hotel online. The hotel staff's was very good and service of this hotel was excellent. The overall experience of the hotel was excellent.
