The staff, the location, the rooms, everything was good. They also provided decent jain food. I think it was second best to mahindra. I was only dissappointed about the activities in that area. Not much fun. So, if you are going to thekkady take a good hotel and enjoy it.

Our experience with this hotel was superb! The reception, rooms, amenities and food - everything was up to the mark. I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and then booked this hotel and our experience was really good. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. I really loved the patio/balcony in our room and felt like sitting there for hours.
