My wife, a friend and myself stayed here in November before moving on to Tamil Nadu. The rooms are very good, the restaurant excellent, the pool is just right and the staff are very helpful. It is near to the Periyar Lake which is worth the early start for a boat trip.

Very good service with some of the best food we had in Kerala. The property is well maintained. They claim to be nature conscious and being an eco-resort but looking at their service i seriously doubt this claim, it seems more like a ploy to attract customers. We stayed for 2 nights at 2 different rooms - Kinanya & Vanya. Kinanya was great whereas Vanya is highly overrated. The swimming pool on account of being surrounded by bushes is at times dirty with insects and leaves.

Visited Thekkaday on December 2012 and stayed in Green Woods. Very nice resort with a good natural aroma. Very clean and spacious rooms. The food is not so tasty and not worth for the high cost.

The room service is not so good, they will tel the food will take more than 1 hr to reach your room as the kitchen is busy, but just order it it wil reach within 15mins.

The resort is very near to the town so the day time is very noisy with loud horn of buses and trucks.

Please note that try to avoid the place Thekkady if you just want a site seeing and no adventures things like trekking , bamboos boat rafting, deep forest trekking etc. These all services are payed, and too good if you go for it.

Boating in Thekkady lake is good, but its very difficult to get tickets.

Room Tip: book rooms away from road side, otherwise it will be always noisy...

My family travelled to this property and stayed here only for one night. We stayed in a cottage. The room was of a very good size and the staff was very friendly.

The buffet lunch and dinner were nothing to rave about. Check out the buffet but don't hesitate to order ala carte instead. Even the room service drinks we ordered were not very good. Breakfast was a good spread.

The property is big and you can take a walk around. There is also an ayurveda centre.

They have a coffee shop in a tree house but that is currently under repair.

Room Tip: Choose a cottage. All sight seeing plan in advance as you might miss out due to the number of tou...

We had the pool suites and normal suites which was amazing! I highly recommend the pool suite the water was warm even though the weather was cool.

Service was excellant but we had no choices for dinner, only buffet was served and could not order ala carte.
It is very clean and green.

Unfortunately the tree house was under construction and the kids could not go up to play.

We were driving from Munnar and everyone was quite tired, when we arrive at the gate we were looking at each other like "No way this place", but on the contrary it below past our expectation. Its the best place to be, cause even when you are surrounded and right in the Market you can neither hear or see any of that. The resort is having nice huts amist all tall trees, excellent rooms, nice bathrooms and must say but the service and staff were beyond expectation.

The food quality is also quite good, in the mornings the live counter was really a nice treat. The place is nice and sweet just 5 mins from the main market & 10 mins from wild life park.

The property is really very clean, has a massage centre too and a nice one the only issue is that you need to book in advance and they don't work upto late night so you'll have to spare time in the day.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good

At first when our driver drove the car in Thekkady market and told "we are almost at the hotel" I began cursing myself for not booking some resort which was in a more peace surrounding. But my speculations were proved totally wrong.
I visited Greenwoods with my wife and daughter and found it to be a very peaceful, serene and soothing property with nice cottages, exquisitely furnished. We loved the nice walks in the property and it's really hard to be believe that there's such a big market just few steps away. There are spice plantations right in the resort, with jackfruit trees. The staff is very nice, courteous and helpful and gave us a very warm welcome. We just loved our stay here, it really was an amazing experience.
