Excellent location & well-maintained property


The location of the property is excellent. Property is very 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.

Location of the hotel is the best


Location of the hotel is the best. Kathakali and martial arts shows are at stone throw distance. Hotel is in middle of the market so very live in night as well. Nice and clean swimming pool. It is in market area but still when you enter the hotel, you will feel like as you are in a forest. Rooms are really very good. We got complimentary upgrade of room. That was really very sweet.

Really green resort for stay


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.
