We stayed in one of their tree houses which have just been completed. This was ideal for us as we like photographing animals. The tree house, as the name suggests, is at tree top height and was like having our own private hide. We photographed black langur monkeys, woodpeckers, kingfishers, sambar deer and more; things that usually won't let you get too close.
The tree house offers spacious accommodation consisting of a large double bedroom - enough room to put an extra couple of beds if you have children (you'd have to keep an eye on them though because of the height), a large shower room (brightly decorated but clean!) and a beautiful balcony to watch the animals from. The room and balcony are beautifully furnished. As everything was new it was even more of a pleasure to return to in the evening. The hotel does have a pool which is ideal for cooling down after a hot day.
My greatest problem with the hotel was that the food was terrible. There are plenty of other places to eat in Thekkady so that's what we did, ate elsewhere.
