I visited this place with my friends in august and below are the pros and cons of this place :

Pros : Though this place is a bit secluded, its placed admist a green estate near lakes and hills. Its quite, calm and will love the atmosphere.

Cons : 1. Food : This was such a big let down. We read so many good reviews but was served below standard food. There was not much options to start with. They need better chef.

2. Tent stay : This was the whole reason why we decided to book this place. But tents needed major upkeeping. The plugs wont work, tv is wasted, lights wont work, rat fights kept us awake at night, hot water takes forever and it smelled like the place was not used for ages. This was definitely not worth the money paid.

3. Hospitality : The owner seldom did interact with us. He wanted us to do the trekking arranged by them. Once we said we are not interested for the same, there ended our interaction. He did not check on us much and since i had a local contact we were good. But the owner should take interest and help his visitors based on their interest.

4. Parking : Expert driving skills needed to park here since its sloped at 40' angle. Cramped and will have to park one behind the other.

So in hindsight, this was not worth the money paid and will find better homestay/hotel options in wayand.

Just into the woods, just a little further up the slope, just a little corner away from the Kabini river, nestled in some talll trees, passion fruits and coffee plants, this is a divine camp.

The luxury tents are spacious, full of light and have everything you wish for... a large clean bath with an AC and TV should you need one. It was beautifully designed and we ended up staying in instead of going out just trekking around.

Should you want to travel, they can arrange transport at very reasonable prices. Prajwal and Aziz take extremely good care of you and pamper you whenever they can. The food is very good and the cooks can make most of what you want... you may want to tell your preferences as they can cater to it otherwise the cuisines rotate and may not always be what you want. But everything you ask for will be catered to with no fuss.

Just come here, relax and have a good time.

Stayed there for a couple of days and really enjoyed the service provided. The rooms were well maintained, the staff was helpful and the stay helped me come close to nature.
Would recommend this to all who are visiting wayanad.

I visited this place in the month of May... weather is like playing hide and seek....and this place is like staying in middle of the jungle.... Tent are good but now time for a top to bottom mantainance ....else there is a horror show for every Traver at night....staffs are good and polite...but for food ...you need to introduce native food... people come to this place to enjoy and become a part of native culture.. overall​ I am happy with grassroot​ but there are scope of lots of improvement..
