Reviewed 23 April 2013

We stayed here in the in mid April, 13 for two days. We had no plans to see places in Wayanad and found this resort to be just what we were looking for..a place to wind out, be lazy and chill. Nice room, good food and a amazing surrounding to sum it up. The good part is, it is away from the city and offers a serene village stay expereince.The mornings are amazings, the coffee blossoms ( and dont know what all) adds up to the freshness of this place. Walk besides the fields is again an experience of its kind. If you are going to wayanad in summer then afternoon can be a bit hot,venturing out during the day time can turnout to be bit hectic and my advice here would be - stay indoors! The room staff are helpful too, and if you are of "talk a lot" kind then they are the "I am in " kind. The owver of the resort, Mr. Vanchy is there it help you with planning your day, offering you gamut of options depending on your preferences. I have recommended it to my friends and personally looking forward to visit this place in the future.

Regards,

Rejeesh

We recently spent two nights at this resort.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. This resort is located in a very quiet village, surrounded by coconut trees and rice paddies. The scenery is beautiful and it is very relaxing to stay there.
The accommodation was good and the food was some of the best that we had in all of south India.
Vanchy, the owner is a very knowledgeable and helpful man - we went on safari with him to Bandipur national park. He helped with our onwards journey also.
Many thanks for the great memories.

A remote haven of peace and quiet in a tranquil area of Wayanad. Good accommodation with a balcony over-looking the grounds, tasty evening meal and breakfast - it is so remote there is nowhere else to go to eat. The highlight is the guided walk by the owner who takes you round his plantation and explains all about the rubber/coffee/coconut trees etc - he is so enthusiastic and it is fascinating to learn all about the growing methods.
Very friendly and helpful staff.

It can be a bit difficult to find this hotel - we came on the bus from Bengaluru, and only just managed to stop at the right place (the little town of Minangadi). From there we got a tuk-tuk - we gave the driver the number of Wynberg Resorts so that he could phoe for directions. We had arrived quite late in the evening, but the hotel (knowing we were coming) were still able to provide supper for us. The room was spacious , clean and comfortable, and the location was rural and peaceful.
Very tasty food was provided for breakfast and supper.
The staff were very helpful and would arrange whatever trips we wanted. The owner has a plantation, and will take guests out on guided walks of his land and the surrounding area - a very worthwhile way to spend a day or half a day.
If there is a downside, it is that because the site is quite remote, you become rather dependant on the staff to arrange things for you - even Minangadi is a 20 minute tuk-tuk ride away. Having said that you could not have the experience that Wynberg gives you in a more central location.

What a wonderful location, lovely accommodation, perfect food and friendly, helpful staff. Vanchy was a perfect host and his guided walk was fascinating. His knowledge and love of the area and of India as a whole, was infectious.
We stayed in the basic eco-cottage and it was perfect. After 10 minutes there we asked to extend our stay.
It was a great base for exploring that part of Kerala. We didn't do the tourist sites but chose just to head off each day walking and met some interesting and friendly people around the local villages. A perfect place to relax and absorb that wonderful area of India.

Room Tip: The eco-cottage furthest from the entrance was perfect with a small 'patio' to sit on and en...

Wynberg was definitely the highlight of our trip in Kerala. The owner arranged a lot of different things for us (such as a seperate tiger safari in Bandipur NP, during which he accompanied us and taught us a lot about nature and wildlife). The personnel (Suresh in particular) was very friendly and helpful. We booked the treetop house, which we can recommend! It is a great experience and worth the extra money. We would also recommend the plantation and village tour with the owner, since he can talk with great passion about all the spices and the life in and around the plantation.

There's so much to say about this wonderful place run by genuinely kind, attentive people under the ownership +leadership of Wanchi. Here is somewhere which shows full commitment to the local environment, to nature and the community. A plantation + estate tour clearly demonstrates the bringing together of traditional methods and new ideas, without resorting to artificial + chemical techniques. Forward thinking and inspiring
The resort, rooms and atmosphere are simply wonderful. The enthusiasm and commitment by the management and team is awesome. Food is simple but very tasty. Rooms are lovely. Staff are fantastic under Suresh. The owner Wanchi is a wildlife and nature photographer - you get the best out of this place if you share his ideals
Don't just read about this place - go there

Room Tip: All superb
