“Certainly in God's own country”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

We had a trip of a lifetime here.
We had booked a honeymoon package, we were two couples and booked the Nalukettu rooms. Believe us the 1st floor Nalukettu rooms are the best. The food, the views, the rooms, the location, the staff and everything that was included was awesome and really made it a super value for money. Recommended to all.

The hotel is horible with no A/C forget about the A/C no proper fans too.. The bathrooms are terible with whole animal planet inside it.. The pictures of the resort posted is not actually what the property looks like its in the worst conditions and the rates are equivalent to the 4 star peoperty but it dosent even deserve one star..

We were in wayanad banasura island retreat during the month end of january. We enjoyed the stay over there. The managers are very down towards and expecially the food is very good.
They prepared foods matching the tamil nadu style also.

Since summer started in january, we are not able to enjoy the beauty of wayanad at the core. Even then we enjoyed the trip because of the resort.

Hope to come again and stay during season time.

Room Tip: If newly married go for single cottage or Nallukattu. If going with another pair, go for twin sharin...

The resort will provide you a picturesque experience undoubtedly, and if you can really afford around 7/night you can enjoy the individual villa they are offering. The food is good and you cant afford to complain, but nothing left in the resort to enjoy a long weekend. Those who prefers a night or max 2, its fine. Planning for a long weekend - lookout for other resorts as well. Managerial staff are friendly enough, no phone connections in the rooms and the charges for food and water it bit on expensive side, so before confirming the rooms, better to have a rate card enquiry with the manger, so you need to spoil your mood on checkout, they charged us heavily on tea and water as well. My thumbsup who wishes to spend one or two nights there....

Room Tip: Independent villas will provide you a better view, so go for it.

A wonderful setting at Waynad forests.The cottages are superbly located giving a great view of the waters. The rooms are well done and well maintained. The food taste is average and needs improvement in taste.

Room Tip: Single cottage

What a view! The view from our twin cottage verandah was exactly as the one shown on the website - lake with the submerged islands and surrounded by green hills. This place totally scores on its location. The rooms in the twin cottage are very neat, each with its own balcony. The washroom is spacious with good quality fittings. The Living room could be furnished better with a sofa etc., currently it is very basic with only a dining table. The verandah attached to the living room is very spacious and meant for large groups to enjoy time together while taking in the brilliant view. The second night was a full moon night and the reflection in the lake was picture perfect! The nights and early mornings were misty & chilly and the view was breathtakingly serene. Given the location, away from any inhabitance or town, Shahjahan the Manager went out of his way to please the guests with a decent buffet, but a little more attention can be given to the taste factor. Our wish was their command and they served us appams for breakfast, which was very tasty. We had an issue with the latching system for the main door and balcony latches were weak…he made some temporary arrangements to make us feel safe. The resort is currently quite basic for the rate charged but I am sure things will improve. The beautiful location, speed boat ride and Kerala Ayurvedic Massage (included in our package) combined with Shahjahan’s hospitality were the highlights of our stay.

Room Tip: Twin cottage and Single cottage have the best view.
