we booked our stay at the resort on TripAdvisor web site. i checked the reviews of this home-stay. most of them were satisfied and when we stayed there it was amazing stay. We travelled from Pune, Maharashtra by road. We took our first break at Mysore after 14.30 hours self drive. Next day we started off in the morning by 8:00 by NH 212 [Mysore Kozikode road]. till Nanjenaguda there was heavy traffic. After Nanjenaguda to Gundulupet the road was under construction for 4 lane. it took longer than we anticipated, but after Gundulupet the Kozokode road was 4 lane and smooth. It passes through the Bandipur forest reserve, Its really breathtaking. We reached Kalpetta by 13:00 and we took road to Meppaddi. It was a horrible road. From Meppaddi we took SH 29 back towards and after a kilometer or two we saw the Green Valley board on our left, I saw the road which looked washed outand decided to take other western end of the road. this road is too narrow and longer than the eastern end. We reached a bit later than we thought we would as we had to find the place. later we realized that the road from Chundel 7km south of Kalpetta. It is SH12 and very smooth drive.
The room was on the dining floor [lower level]. The room had a amazing view of tea estate, a waterfall and the Mountain. The Caretaker Syam and his wife Durga took good care of us. that evening we had rains till dawn. Next day morning good hot cup of tea sitting in balcony with the sunrise was memorable[ which we used to have every morning] After the breakfast in the morning we strolled in the tea estate and enjoyed walking in the fresh air. We came back for our lunch and we had really tasty Kairali food prepared. The evening again it rained a lot so we were in the balcony just looking at it. Next day after our breakfast we headed for the Lakkidi View point. The weather was chilly and we were in the clouds. Comimg back we visited Pookode lake which was a bit disappointing. There is no parking available so you have to park your vehicle on the narrow road. From there we headed towards. "1980s restaurant" for Kairali Lunch. It was delicious.
The 3 days stay at Jack fruit Tree Green Valley was memorable. We have to be realistic and not expect anything which you would expect from a star hotel as its a home stay which is simple, clean and memorable. Thanks to Syam and Durga for being a good host at the resort.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We were a group of 11 (6 male, 5 female) members visiting wayanad. Found this place through a reference. We go on trips very often and have never stayed at a place that gives you the warmth of your house, luxury of a hotel and the peace of an ashram.

The place was absolutely breath taking. The view from the balconies where way more than awesome. Watching the clouds in the morning , sunsets in the evening.. The best time was when the thunderstorm started in the evening.. Their is a small stream behind the villa, very easy to trek. Tea plantation.. The place is definitely for people who are in love with nature. Lot of places to visit near by as well.

I have to mention Shyam (Caretaker)and his wife Durga. Shyam will go to extremes to help you. Anything you need, just let him know and he will try and arrange it. All you have to do is let him know in advance.
The other person I would want to mention is Mr Prasad (the owner). I had got his contact details from a friend who recommended this place. I found all the praise for Mr Prasad, his employees and the property of justice.

All I can say is, it was a great trip and wonderful memories.

“Great Experience at The Jackfruit Tree, Wayanad.”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This place is ideal to travel with friends. Great view of the Chembra peak and the surroundings. Prasad the owner, was very helpful and generous. Location wise this place does total justice to the vacation we had here.

The cook, Shyam and his wife Durga prepared us a decent meal. Though we thought that the quantity was compromised, especially when we had got all the veggies and meat for dinner. We also found some of our liquor missing the next day.

But all in all we were very much happy and had a wonderful experience at The Jackfruit Tree.

Will definitely visit again!

“Great location, Great service”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We landed up one evening to vacation at this little property located at the foot of Chembra peak, one of the tallest in Kerala. The weather was amazing with the clouds rolling down the hills towards us. The food was prepared by a nice man who gave us home cooked meals on request and the service in the property was also quite homely. Away from the madding crowd and conveniently located by the side of the National Highway near Meppadi, it was the perfect getaway after a hectic work schedule. I would recommend it for anyone with family or with friends. It is a perfect place for people looking to spend a nice holiday on a budget

A wonderful & relaxing holiday spent well with family & friends. The green view with hills & tea garden around is amazing.The murmuring sound of the waterfall in the morning and the serenity of the evenings will thrill your soul for sure. The hospitality of the one & all man- Shyam was commendable. Food was delicious. Overall a weekend spent nicely. Just a small suggestion- it was difficult for us to locate the place as there is no hoardings or mention of Jackfruit anywhere. Green Valley board was also almost invisible,so would suggest Mr.Prasad to update his location details in Google maps or help tourists with a signboard.

“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed 25 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Everything was awesome except just one thing, our vodka bottle was taken by someone there. Amazing place, very nice home stay. The cook Shaam is a decent cook. Superb place to stay where you have nice valley view, and a small trek to waterfalls. Tea plantations all around. A small ground where local kids play football, cricket etc. And the water stream flows down from the falls. Overall a nice place to stay!

Wynad has always thrilled the adventurous traveler in us. My friend and I have been to this place many times. We love trekking. Last time we opted The Jackfruit Tree for our stay.We enjoyed the stay as well as food in this place. It was barely half an hour drive to the gate from where we began our trek to Chembra Peak. It was amazing and we will cherish the moments we spent there, for this lifetime.
The staff at The Jackfruit Tree were very good and special thanks to Shyam for his pleasing smile and ready to assist at any moment. (I couldnt believe he was from Nepal since he spoke fluent malayalam). The house was always clean and water supply was continuous [we were a bit worried about that since this property was on a hillside]. We took a walk through the tea estate nearby. The roads are motorable, a perfect place for riding too! We wish to come back to this cosy space next season.We realise that the services offered by The Jackfruit Tree is what made our stay a very good one, apart from the nature around. All the best dear Jackfruit!!!
