The first impression of the hotel was really good

Posted 12 Jan, 2016

My husband and I visited Kerala on our first marriage anniversary. The experience in Kerala was awesome. We visited thekkady for 1 day and 2 nights. Our stay was arranged at Sterling Resort 'Woods n Spice'. Initially it was a bit difficult to locate the hotel but later our driver could locate it and we reached the hotel. The first impression of the hotel was really good. I and my husband was impressed with the outside ambiance. The wooden work of the hotel really gives you a good feel. The hotel room was also very nice and properly arranged. The food was also good. The only thing I didn't like was the cake we ordered there on our anniversary day. It was costly and not upto our satisfaction. Our overall experience has been really good.

Good food and helpful staff

Posted 7 Dec, 2015

Location: The drive from Munnar sterling to here is another 3 hour. But it's beautiful. Away from crowd. Its very near to periyar tiger reserve so the view is beautiful. If you are going to do sightseeing every day then it's not far from resort. If you want to relax, then you are at the right place. Rooms: We stayed in the cottage, it's wonderful. We had a very good view of forest and swimming pool, worth it. Careful of monkeys. They are everywhere. Dining: Food is generally good at these resorts. So no worries. We ordered their in-room dining for 2 days and we loved the portion size that they served. It was really nice. We liked that food taste better than the buffet for sure. For kids, kids milk and Khichdi are always in good we enjoyed our thali meals. So you can't be more than happy about that. Activities: Their activity room is really tough to get out from. My child spent most of his time there. The staff Manivasan and Ramesh and prabh take care well its really fantastic. We had nice holiday. Else, he was happy there. So it's a blessing. Wi-Fi is free near lobby area and travel desk centre. Staff is very helpful and courteous. Front office staff are really helpful always. In all, this resort is something I can come again for sure. Will be back.

Location is great, tasty food and great Nature.

Posted 4 May, 2014

The location of the hotel is awesome. We can feel the cold breeze. Foods are healthy and tasty. It's beyond words. There is a pool and next to it there is a place to sit and relax. The resort is made up of wood, so we can feel the nature. They really utilize the nature. The garden I love the most. There is a place to play games, special programs for visitors. There are many animals, we can enjoy it also. At night the view is fantastic. It is a very good place for tourists to relax.

Perfect location with well accommodating agents

Posted 7 Aug, 2015

Thekkady -Sterling 'Woods n Spice' is the absolute abode to be in. All out to baby and blemish you to the core. Located in the affection of Thekkady and able-bodied connected. The account is acceptable and apartment are comfortable. Has all the minimum accessories appropriate for a anniversary resort. We accept backward for a abbreviate aeon of two canicule only. But the aliment superior is actual abundant beneath standard. The advance in cafe is actual beneath and a lot of of the dishes are algid and takes time to get refilled. Coffee and tea are pathetic. The agents abnormally Shaju Thoppil from the abode befitting was soo actual accessible and accessible to accomplish it a memorable cruise for us. Pratish from the restaurant went out of the way to arrange/suggest assorted Kerala delicacies for us and acutely the chef Sri Kumar who anchored it for us, demography aback memories of a absolute break and hospitality. All added agents was as well actual accommodating.

Amazing place to be away from crowd

Posted 26 Feb, 2016

I stayed at this resort as one of stay options on my honeymoon. It is a beautiful property situated at a beautiful place. The rooms are big and yet have a cosy feel to them. The service was also impeccable. The food as usual at Sterling holidays was very nice. The hotel has a number of options to be explored within the property and organise tours outside the property as well. While I went on my honeymoon, it a good place to spend time with your family as well.
