This the closest you can get to living in nature. It is a combination of camping (tent house) with comfort and good food. The tent houses were in the middle of a coffee plantation surrounded by tall trees. Top it off, the river Kabini flows by the place. It was like living in a tropical jungle. All basic amenities were provided - hot water, refrigerator, TV,A/C, etc.
The staff and the manager, Prajwal are very friendly and helpful.They attended to all our needs and requests. The food was homely and delicious.
Stayed with my family for 4 nights and 5 days, enjoyed the experience. Was able to reach all tourist spots in Wayanad fairly easily form Grassroots. The manager Mr. Prajwal arranged a midnight Jeep drive to the Tholpetty wildlife sanctuary at our request. Had a great time, spotted couple of Tuskers, Bisons and deers on the road. The midnight drive was thrilling.
- 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
