“Haven For Nature Lovers - Totally Unadulterated !!!!.....”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Absolutely a haven for true nature lovers.....mountain side, waterfalls, plantation, trekking routes, great climate coupled with good service.....You will need to engage a 4 wheel drive Jeep from the bottom of the mountain in Yendayar (Near Mundakayam, Kerala) if you don't have a 4x4 and the drive up (about 8 km which takes close to an hour) is thrilling. Finally you reach a beautiful 5 room Resort nicely perched atop a mountain about 3000+ ft above sea level. The resort is spectacularly furnished predominantly with antique collections a the sweet sound of a waterfall beside it. Around the property are expansive Tea and Cardamom plantations as well as well laid out trekking routes which can take you up to 4500+ ft. The property is managed by Mr. Sebastian and his family who apart from being patient and courteous also ensure that you are served with good food especially local Kerala delicacies. No TV's, Fans, AC and limited mobile coverage means that you are almost cut off from civilization. They also offer Barbeques, Grills, camp Fires ...etc as well as a Jeep Safari for those interested. To top it all check out the sunset picture I have uploaded

All in all....a great destination which I definitely want to return to.....A lovely place to unwind....

Room Tip: Choose a Room by the Waterfall with a sitout facing it and a Fireplace within

The ambience and the climate over there tells it all. The energy level at that place. The places we went for Jeep Safari is beyond explanation. The most beautiful and energised place. The water falls,the rivers all has a story to tell. The service part has to be experienced.
