First of all, this Resort is worth to write a review.... I have checked in on Nov 03rd and checked out by Nov 05th. I have reached Kozhikode railway station and from there came to KSRTC bus stand and took a Bus and got down at Vythri town. From Vythri I called the Hotel and arranged for a pick-up. From Vythri 4kms to this resort is a difficult terrain. But this resort is really an awesome place. This resort has a natural waterfall which adds to the beauty of this place. The sound of the waterfall during night with camp fire along with drizzle was an unforgettable experience. During my stay we experienced mist, drizzle and rains which was awesome. Heard that November and December is the best season in Wayanad from the Hotel persons. So plan accordingly. About hospitality: You will feel very hard to leave this place because of the hospitality provided in this place. Every person in this hotel is so kind to the guests. This is one of the very important reason to like this place. We would definitely think to visit this place again because of their hospitality. About the rooms and amenities: I booked tranquil rooms and the rooms are very neat and clean and everything was in proper working condition. Room service was excellent. No one disturbs you unnecessarily here. The phones were not in working condition due to rain when we visited and they were working on that. That was not a major concern to us since the restaurant, reception was very near to the rooms. The swimming pool were kept clean but beware of the leeches here. I got some leech bites here. This resort is built well to accommodate nature within it. About the restaurant: This is one of the best place to spend time since the view from the restaurant is good. Food was really excellent in this restaurant. Before your every meal they come to your room and you can select the food from their menu (each day different menu) I didn't like their Sambar. Except Sambar every item was decent. If you like a food, you can order it again and again as you wish. The hotel persons don't even hesitate a bit which is a great quality in them. Literally we spent our time in eating and roaming in this place. We didn't go outside for sightseeing. Above all, this place is really a great one for Honeymoon couples and family members. Awesome place, good food, Awesome hospitality and kind persons. If you want to spend your time in relaxing in the resort itself (Honeymooners) rather than sightseeing, this place is an excellent choice. Myself and my wife felt so hard to leave this place and if we were to Wayanad again, we will definitely choose this resort for our stay. Unforgettable and awesome experience at economical cost.
Location: Except the about 4 km approach road everything is fine. Wonderfully located in the midst of woods at a height of the mountain with a view if Chembra Peak. The cellular connection is very weak but that is a boon for a good travellers to forget the chores and merge with the nature. Facilities: Swimming pool with natural water from the mountain stream. As we went in cooler period we were unfortunate not use the pool. A natural waterfalls with a pool so nicely located you will love. Spa but extremely over priced. Health club. Indoor games. Rooms: Spacious neat everyday meticulous cleaning running hot and cold water. Very good. Restaurant: Delicious food customised to your taste. Neat presentation. So lovable service with smile. The chef was very experienced. He told he us from Taj. All NV items were treat for tongue. The hall is having wonderful ambiance. Front office: Everybody was polite to make you feel like a Raj. Mr. Vijay the in charge went an extra mile to make us feel more comfortable.
This again was a very pleasant experience. i would love to come back to this place and hotel for a stay.
I have been to this hotel two times already and this was my third visit. Four persons (2 couples - My wife, I, my friend and his wife) took a taxi from Bangalore. We really needed break from hectic urban life. Since I already visited this hotel for my honeymoon, I suggested this hotel and my friend said ok immediately. We reached this hotel around 4 PM in the evening. Let me first tell you the pros: pros: Amazing location on top of the hill!!! The hotel staffs were very courteous and they welcomed us with a welcome drink. We took a valley view room and it was very spacious. The food was more than average. One should inform the chef if you need food with less spice. There is a natural pool inside and it was amazing!!! You should never think of missing the natural pool. Blueginger spa - quite good but bit expensive. They arrange the bonfire if weather permits. Yes, we had a nice time with bonfire as people were singing and dancing. Pookot lake is just 7 kms and soochipara waterfalls is 25 kms away from the hotel. You can cover up to 3 destinations a day. One last thing, they arranged a natural trekking inside the resort which was okay. cons: 1. The last 5 kms road to the hotel is terrible. Only one car can go at a time as the road is full of pathholes and its very very narrow. If you are not confident with your driving, better you take a cab. IT IS NOT A EASY DRIVE. When I checked with the hotel staffs they told they are in process of getting approval from forest department to put roads on their own. 2. There were no much activities except bonfire. Only carrom and chess are available as indoor games. 3. SPA is very costly. Advice to travellers: 1. Please beware of leeches and I am sure you will experience lot of leeches during rainy season. Always carry dettol and cotton. 2. Natural pool is awesome but it is deep too. So if you don't know swimming, please take a help of your dear one(s). Please stay away if none of you do not know swimming. 3. Plan your trip appropriately. Try to reach the hotel before dark. Very very difficult to drive the last 5 kms in night times :-) Verdict: Wonderful location if you are natural lover.
