Stayed there 1 night. We were upgraded to a suite for free. Location was nearby a few souvenir shops & restaurants. Rooms were average & clean. We wanted to have dinner but they told us the restaurant is closed but they can deliver to our room. Food was good and priced reasonably. Breakfast was a mix of local and toast....

This is probably one of the worst resorts associated to Sterling (not that they are great otherwise). The booking process is painful, the rooms are tiny and the whole property itself seems congested. During our trip, the swimming pool was under repair,so noisy and dusty. Food was mediocre, service was ok, activities dull. Do not recommend this resort!

We stayed on 12th March in wood n spice resort Thekkady. On arrival we were honoured with welcome drink. Our room was giving sweet fragrance. Whole room was made up of wood. Which was very attractive. Reception area was also on wooden theme. This resort is very close to nature and nearby Periyar Wild Life Centuray.

The service part is very good.The restaurant is excellent.Kudos to the Chef Hussein,and Prateesh Manager. The property has some inherent problems. Thekkady has become warm.The rooms are not properly ventilated. It's not air-conditioned either. So you have a major issue on hand.In summer it could be suffocating. The management should do something fast lest business would slip away.

The property is very well located just adjacent to the Periyar tiger reserve, made up of all wood. NO issue with cleanliness inside the room or washroom. Somehow I did not like the way guest apartments are constructed as you share the corridor with lots of other occupants, and I prefer a balcony. The property requires maintenance and overhaul badly....
