We stayed for 3 days. After a very long trip by car from Alappuzha, we were so happy to be in a relaxed, quiet place. The food was fantastic, and we were looked after very well. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Easy access to town. The room in the small cottage was a bit too small for the additional bed, but we were out most of the time and it did not bother us too much. We did not have time to enjoy the swimming pool, as we were out during the day when it was open. There was only one inconvinience when we arrived, as we were first given a different room than we reserved. This was, however, quickly resolved. Overall, it is good value for money, though probably not the cheapest option in Thekkady.

The Green Wood is another one of Kerla's fading stars. It was very nice when it was first built but like many other properties, it has not been kept up : drapes, bedding and rooms are a little shabby. The spare bed covering has holes in it. The lighting is also rather poor. Lots of steps but no railings, so be very careful. The food is mediocre at best. Beverages are limited; they do not have a beer/wine/liquor license. One bright spot is the front desk. Very helpful. Technology is lacking. You receive a user name and password, but the wireless does not reach to the rooms, plus our IPads would not connect even in the lobby. They have a wonderful treetop coffee shop except no one waits on you up there. The chef conducts cooking classes which is fun. Food us average Rates no more than a 2 star at best.

I stayed at Green Woods for one night during the Kerala strike week in Nov 2013. I checked in at the usual time, but didn't check out until 23:30 the following night as the strike did not end until midnight and we would not be able to travel up to Munnar. I updated my checkout time with the staff several times (progressively later) and they never even suggested that I might have to pay extra.

When booking, I contacted them directly through their website, and was offered a rate 15% lower than I was able to find online (once taxes were included), 8,000 rupees rather than 9,400. This might well have been because of lots of cancellations due to the strike, but still, it might be worth while checking prices directly rather than going straight to the usual hotel sites.

The buffet food was good, and reasonably priced (500 for lunch, 700 for dinner). Location was also good, being right in Kumily, but surrounded by their own mini park to give you a relaxing environment. The standard of the rooms was good without being anything remarkable, I'd say good 3 star compared to UK hotels, but the service was very good. Overall I'd definitely recommend Green Woods.

The resort was great and services was really awesome!!! We enjoyed a lot.. The resort is situated near by all the attraction and also there are lot of activities to do inside the resort as well. There was pool, recreation centre and gym. On top of all I enjoyed the food so much. Thanks so much for taking care of us. If we'll come to thekkady next time we will surely stay at Green Woods Resort.

As you enter the property you are greeted with two turkeys, one black & one white, who have a peculiar cackle like two humans laughing. Set in 5 acres, the suite is uniquely designed for maximum feeling of space, nice views of greenery and above all calmness.
Plenty of lawns, a pool, hammock, swing keep the family busy. The breakfast spread is sumptuous but the dinner buffet needs more careful planning however for a harmonious combination. The salad bar had plain veggies, the chef could have done much more.

Overall, a great base to explore Thekkady & Periyar from.

Room Tip: The suite/rooms away from reception are private, overlooking the pool.

One word to say about this place is Fantabulous. One of the greatest places to stay we have ever visited.
We wanted to book this resort for 2 nights but unfortunately we got only 1 day booking. I had heard about this resort from one of my relatives. I found this place better than their words. At first their welcome was fabulous. Then one the the lady receptionist took us to the room. While on the way she described almost everything about the place and the activities to take place during the whole day. This place was managed like a small village with 5 star amenities. The room was perfectly maintained and clean. Location of the room was very good and peaceful. After taking rest for 2 hrs, we started to take a look around a resort. Various spice plantation was done. Various activities like resort tour and cultural programs were organised by the resort people. Several indoor sports were there in recreation centre. They have also kept some pets in a separate area. The food was delicious. If you are looking for the best place to stay, it is definitely Greenwoods.

Room Tip: Every room has its own uniqness.
