Thekkady is a great destination to live among the wilderness but it also gets a bit boring because there is not much to do around this destination especially if it is monsoon season.

It was completely worth each penny. They have very courteous staff, beautiful rooms with exquisite woodwork and an amazing patio with scenic view! The resort is very nicely maintained. However, the approach road to the resort needs a lot of repair and there were no streetlights in the night. All in all, it was a very memorable and pleasant stay.

The resort was immaculate and staff were attentive and helpful. Amenities were great, particularly the day spa. Food was served in generous portions and had a mix of both Southern Indian and European cuisine on the menus. Only downside was that the free wi-fi was hardly ever accessible due to system failures.
