The place is beautiful but location is away from the highway on a non existent track. Rooms are clean. Recommend for small groups as there are only three rooms on offer. Limited activities are available. Found one poisonous snake slithering right outside the room which was promptly killed by the caretaker. No electricity in night and also the generator was also not working. AC remote was not having batteries. After a five hour drive reached in evening, asked for tea but there was no milk. However got black tea. As there was no electricity so hot water was not available. However the caretaker got hot water from kitchen. Caretaker is a nice guy and very helpful but the place needs a good manager. After rains leaches were also seen around the room. Take some mosquito repellent which might come handy. I have also uploaded the picture of the

Didn't check-in as the hotel was in absolute remote location and didn't felt safe. Also it's not in Thekkady but in Tamilnadu. Strongly not recommended for families or if you are in Thekkady for local sightseeing/adventure.

Beauty at its best!! Was there with family for 2 days. Even though the farm location is a bit remote (around 2. 5 km from the Gudalur highway), the 35 acres farm which harvests around 15 types of fruits is an excellent place to relax with friends or with family. Nice and friendly staff. Good food. They give us the freedom to use the kitchen if we wish. Also, provision to do Barbecue will be arranged on request. Overall, we had a calm, wonderful and rejuvenating experience. Will visit the farm again, but next time during the fruits harvest season.

Advise to travellers :

Order your food in advance, they will prepare the food you prefer.

Take hair oil and shampoo (if you use those) as they are not provided in the room. (You get slightly hard water in bathroom)

Ready-made snacks like packet chips, soft drinks, etc is not available. ( Who needs those when you are in sync with the nature.

Do not litter the farm with plastics, they keep it very organic.

Note : You can buy fresh organic fruits directly plucked from the trees in the farm when you leave. I bought 3 kg Pomegranate.

It's a 3 bedroom farm house in a good location with commanding views of hills surrounding.

The time we went was not a season for the fruits, so we didn't got the expected fruits from there.

There is no options for the complimentary breakfast and was just average.

And the road to the property is in bad condition (almost 3 km), management needs to do something on that.

The overall experience was good.

Thanks.

Earvest fresh farms goes with its name. Me and my wife really enjoyed staying here especially the hospitality of the staff was mind blowing, kind of personalized gesture. Food was awesome, other activities were worth taking a try. Location was so calm and beautiful we would surely love to stay there again ,.
