“Lovely Experience - Well Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

We (Me and my husband) stayed for 3 nights over the 10 Jan weekend. It was a great experience. The staff is very courteous and Mr. Shinoj made sure we thoroughly enjoy our stay. The Cedar suite exceeded our expectations. I was shocked initially to see that there was no TV in the room but by the end of the stay, realized that was the best part. All we did was relax away from our hectic lives. Breakfast was also good. The best part was its location, a midst the green jungle, away from the hustle and bustle.

Only one advice - It would be really great if you can provide toiletries with the suites. Generally on a weekend trip, travelers do not carry these

Rest everything about this lodge was awesome. We would definitely be back

Room Tip: Select Cedar suite in the last corner. Very peaceful

Had a wonderful experience at Pugmark, we were 6 adults and 2 kids(father, mother, brother his wife&kid and me, wife &our kid). The views were awesome, rooms comfortable and the food was very good. Location of the property itself made us very comfortable and memorable. We went two safaris- night and early morning and saw elephants, gaurs , spotted deers, peacocks etc, but sighting of a big cat still remains an unfulfilled wish and expect luck will be there on our next visit.
Special thanks to Mr.Gopavarma and Mr.Shinoj and all other staffs who made our trip memorable.

We are a family of 3 and stayed at Pugmarks over the weekend of December 27th, 2013. I had been planning a trip to Wayanad for over an year but could not make it due to hectic official schedules. However, Gopa (the owner) was following up regularly every season. I am more than happy that I decided to make it this season. Excellent guidance and support from the owner, manager and the staff. A very well maintained resort and value for money. Shinoj literally took the extra miles to ensure that we spotted elephants/deer/bison during the night safari. Kids (or the kids in us!) will surely enjoy the 3 adventure sports (zipline experience is a must). The pond, garden and hammock add to the aesthetic appeal of the place. Food was very tasty (a suggestion is to offer choices for dinner). While you are here, do not miss a visit to Iruppu falls (subject to water availability). It is a awesome experience. Would definitely recommend the resort for the personal touch provided by the team. Thank you very much Pugmarks for really making our trip/stay so wonderful ! You guys have really set the bar in hospitality ! WOW is the word !

Room Tip: Cedar suite is the best - go for it !!

We are a family of 3 and stayed at Pugmarks over the weekend of 13th Dec. We had a plethora of choices for this trip but wanted to stay in a place which where there was an intimacy with nature, both of the wild and of human. The personal touch rendered by Shinoj and his team and their very earthy, genuine, courteous and simple nature was in sync with how we found pugmarks to be as a place, resort. Such an honest care is very rare to find and I hope pugmarks realizes this (what they have) even when their business expands. Sometimes we dont go in search of great places as much a great beauty in everyday human connection. There was an effortless congruency with the place and staff and food that was a total joy and a pleasure to partake of. Everything was filled with luminosity of life. My son who is hard to please - food wise - said he felt so good eating this food ! Our bodies felt great, soul felt a sense of eternity and stillness we rarely feel in a city living and we were instantly able to relax our minds and have that intimate family time, a quality time we were hoping for. The facilities in the resort were a treat for the adventurer in us and so were the attractions around the larger wayanad area. We wish we were a bit more wise with our time as attractions we selected were a bit far out and too much of car time. Also the animal reserve (sanctuary) was closed for the tiger sensus which we didn't know about, so that was certainly disappointing. Weather was perfect - neither too warm and also chilly enough to enjoy the nights. The fireplace in the cedar suites was enjoyable as was the room. Everything we requested including the cake for our son's birthday was as per our instruction. Operationally it was all seamless - all there was left to do with have a great time and we did ! In our memorable trips this is right up there on top of the list as an unforgettable stay. Thank you Pugmarks !

Room Tip: We were happy to have taken the Cedar Suites (the one at the far end) as it served our need for a pr...

Thank you very much for your generous complements, which has come obviously as a New Year's gift to Pugmarks. We will sure keep it in mind to retain the good human element in business (which you mentioned in your feedback) as we expand our business. Great to know that your whole family enjoyed the vacation with us.

Great people & place. Humility of resort manager & employees including owner is amazing. Property owner provides amazing guidance well before. Worth it for money & time

Food is very good at resort. But little costly (Rs 250 Per Individual). You need to inform them well before if you want have food at resort. Early communication is necessary if you want to have lunch or dinner.

Room Tip: Choose Cedar Suite in 1st floor. It is amazing

Thanks for your valuable feedback. We understand that food in resorts in upcoming destinations like Wayanad is expensive. The reason being, the resorts do not entertain walk-in customers, so as not to disturb the guests. Thank you for your genuine concern.

Very nice place to stay. Shinoj and team made us feel home by preparing awesome food and quality service. Helped us with places to visit in Wayanad. This place is Worth every penny staywise, foodwise and hospitality wise. Many Thanks to Pugmarks for making our stay wonderful and memorable.

Room Tip: All the rooms here are good. I would suggest Cedar Suite for Couples and Cedar Camp for bachelors.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Lodge: Nothing could best explain the philosophy at Pugmarks than Byron's lines. Neatly tucked away in a five acre coffee plantation are charming wooden cottage tents and wooden suites; an inviting place to be miles away from anywhere of consequence. Hemmed by the elephant corridor on one side and the thick foliage of the forest on the other, Pugmarks Jungle Lodge is Wayanad’s very own nature retreat, where being amidst nature is just a way of living. Trying to recreate the essence of being close to nature, the five acres of landscaped coffee plantation is adorned with quaint wooden and tented cottages. The lodges have been built utilizing ethnic material and the skill of local craftsmen. Classic hand carved wooden furniture, and custom made beddings, which took our seven craftsmen more than twenty days and modern bath facilities, sum up the accommodation facilities at Pugmarks Jungle Lodge. ... more   less
