Not good at all

Posted 15 Apr, 2016

The worst holiday till date! We stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights The only thing good about the place is its location, but very badly maintained The dinner on the first night of our stay consisted of papad like hard chapattis and some random dry curry and some uncooked rice which they called fried rice! There was no camp fire at night. Next morning they didn't have milk to provide coffee/tea The breakfast was brought from a hotel outside ... Consisted of cold dosa and cold puttu with peas curry and chutney. There were overall 3 different groups and there wasn't enough chutney or curry for all of us ... But yes, the heap of cold dosas was kept in front of us with no chutney or curry! When we complained to Mr. Sanjay about it ... He did not even care to apologise or arrange for something else. He went around randomly shouting at his workers and then scooted off and returned only in the night (mostly drunk) Then out of desperation we suggested that we'll cook ourselves. He didn't let us into the kitchen but instead put a stove outside and gave it to us. We even had to pay them money for vegetables and batter. And finally by the time they brought the materials it was lunch time. So v cooked lunch ourselves and ate it. Amidst all this, we didn't bother about lack of hot water. In the evening, Mr Sanjay called up my father and asked him for money ... They were not ready to accept payment at checkout. Finally they forced us to give 5000 cash. To our surprise the dinner was decent, and they even put a campfire for an hr. Next morning the prob continued, again no milk. Then the water stopped completely. When we complained to mr Sanjay, he came and shouted at us say we were creating problem for everything ". And then they decided to give us breakfast ... Again cold food ... A heap of cold idlis ... With that, in the name of sambar was last nights curry !!! That was the limit, we packed our bags and left. Then the goon Sanjay came near our cars and shouted at us, told us that you Karnataka people go back to your land and all that. We refused to pay him. In anger, he said he will pay back all our money but till to this day he hasn't. So basically, Good location Good pineapples Everything else is horrible No safari No trekking No activities No "heritage villa" No service No "authentic Kerala food " Waste of time, energy and money

Good stay there; great stay

Posted 15 May, 2014

Overall, my stay there was good. Thailand as a destination is good. It was very nice place to go but Bangkok was not good. Everything was very good in Thailand's hotel. Hotel was conveniently located. In Bangkok's hotel, the room was not so good but in Thailand the room was very good. Staff of the hotel was helpful and friendly. They were quick to attend to all our requests. Bangkok hotel's appearance was not good but Thailand hotel's outside and inside appearance was excellent. Room was maintained. AC, TV, refrigerator, etc. Were there and they were functioned properly. Room and room facility was excellent. View of swimming pool was visible from the room that was excellent but in Bangkok it was not good. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. I was satisfied with it. I stayed there for 2 nights. Food was excellent according to quality and variety. Both veg. And non-veg. Food was available there. Swimming pool was there and it was excellent. Sightseeing was not provided by the hotel people. Outdoor and indoor games were not available there. Activity part was good. It was value for our money. Services of the staff were good. Booking and front office facility was also good. Location of the hotel was excellent. It was beach and mountains both kind of holiday. I visited there with my family in November 2013.

A great hotel with a view of Kalindi River

Posted 29 Apr, 2014

It is a nice experience with my friends. Kalindi River flows so calmly in front of the resort, which makes it more attractive. The food is also very tasty and the hotel crews are very good. You can enjoy the monsoon with all its beauty in a natural way. Really a good place, which is away from town and pollution. As the place is situated at Waynad District in Kerala, the climate is so soothing which makes it a special location to visit. The way to the location is also very interesting as we can see elephants and other wild animals.
