Our stay was quite deceiving. Given the price (Rs 1,250/person, "all" inclusive), we expected a better quality of service.

Those guys take full advantage out of their monopoly situation in Tholpetty.

Best Experience: Food is good.

Worst Experience: - The price they give you for a jeep safari is "without animal watching", it means it does not include the fact that you might spot wild animals like elephants or tigers. We had the chance to see a tiger, and we were afterwards literally forced by our host to give some extra tip to the guy who accompanied us.
- All meals are included, but if you ask for a picnic because you go trekking, do not expect more than 2 chapatis and a banana. A man who trekked with us collapsed when we reached the parking, by lack of sugar.
- The electricity installation was so poor that light would be cut each time we switch on the water heater. Then we had to argue for half an hour with our host in order to get a bucket of hot water.
- The manager is not on site, and the local guy who seems to run the guest house is nor able neither allowed to make any decision.
