This was my first ever visit to a resort, and i was not disappointed. The main host, Prajwal, is very hospitable, and the chefs preparing the food are pretty much local, so you get a really good local flavor in your food, which is amazing to say the least. This is right in between of a forest-like area, and these are tents you'll stay in, not concrete rooms etc. So expect bugs once in a while (not a huge issue). Early morning mist gives a 'buena vista' of the surrounding hills and tea plantations.
Overall, it was a really pleasant stay. Just don't travel alone like i did (my fault), because i was bored to death and survived on their TV most of the time when i was back to my tent after travelling.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Grassroots is at the foothills of the Vythiri ranges with the majestic Chembra peak to the left and the Banasura/Kuruchermala to the right. The property straddles a tea estate and has a swift flowing river with a Pannia (a tribe found in Kerala & Tamil Nadu) colony at the edge of the river. Set on a three acre slope of coffee, areca nut and pepper, Grassroots overlooks the tea plantations planted during the colonial era. A quaint stream below forms a general area of activity for the scattered population of tribals and other residents. The Banasura range of mountains beyond completes the picture, making it truly magical. Accommodation is in Luxury Swiss tents, spacious and plush with every amenity that the discerning traveler would want. ... more less
