Stayed two nights at Cardoman County and I would recommend it without any hesitance. Great location, you can walk to either downtown Thekkady or the reserve. The rooms are more boutique in style but well appointed and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. The hotel has a good restaurant and is within walking distance of other restaurants should you wish it....

We stayed here for two nights on our Gate 1 tour. The rooms were clean, and the beds were comfortable. We had one of the rooms on the upper floors. If you are physically challenged, ask for a room on one of the lower levels, but it was great for us. Management will come by to remind you to keep...

If you have a room at the top of this site which rises up from the road along a hillside then make sure you are fit and don't mind steps! The whole complex is cleverly arranged so that you continually find new views or routes to and from your room. The restaurant was large and staffed by friendly waiters who...

We stayed for two nights one of which was my husbands birthday. The hotel isn't particularly oppulent but our room was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. We awoke to monkeys on our balcony which added to the charm. The restaurant didn't have much atmosphere but the food was good and service was excellent. For my husbands birthday...

Attractive hotel in pretty landscaped gardens. Room a little gloomy but with a balcony looking out over the valley. Pretty pool with plenty of seating. Restaurant fine. Service was a bit slow but they brought us extra starters to make up for the delay.

It is a beautiful resort surrounded by lush green trees. The landscaping and the architecture is very pleasing to the eyes. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food served in the restaurant is delicious. There was a lot of variety, western cuisine as well as Keralite specialities.

Once the car entered the property you get a sense you are somewhere tranquil and beautiful. Guests are greeted with a flower lei and seated at a desk to complete registration.
