I had a very bad exp in this resort.most of the facilities given in the email and site don't exist at all.spending time in this resort is waste of time and money.if you are planning to come to this resort then think again.the resort management is just behind getting the money from customer without giving any good service/facility.

Hi Preethi, At the onset on behalf of the management let me apologise for what seems from your review a rather difficult time you had at our resort. We take a lot of pride in a guest returning home happy and as is rather evident from most of the other reviews is something that we almost always achieve. We are...

It was a really a wonderful experience at Edakkal hermitage. The room surrounded by the trees was very attractive and we could enjoy the nature peacefully. The hospitality was excellent. The dinner serving inside the cave was remarkable.

Highly Recommended for people with Energy! The cottages are located at decent gaps from each other. Lot of uphill and downhill walking one needs to do. The rooms are spacious and the best part is the VIEW of the hills (see my pics). The most attractive part of this place is the NATURAL CAVE RESTAURANT with 100 candles lit and...

We stayed in the new cottage and absolutely loved it. Very nicely maintained and well equipped with all the basic facilities. The cottages over look the mountains, its mesmerizing. The resort is located at the foot of the hill and its very close to edakkal caves. Although the climb to edakkal caves is very steep but definitely worth the effort....

Right at the foot of the Edakkal Hill, this is most comfortably located resort if you are visiting the Edakkal Caves. Even otherwise, this is a place which you should not miss while visiting Wayanad. The rooms are good. I will not state they are some thing out of the ordinary. The rooms are neat, and service is good. But...

We were a group of 6 friends. Lucky to have found this place right near the entrance to the edakkal caves. We rented 2 cabins, overlooking the mountains. We had an excellent freshly prepared meal by the kitchen staff in their restaurant set in the hills. In the morning, one of their staff members walked us up a steep hill...
