A beautiful bungalow surrounded by luscious green trees and plants that have been well taken care of. A great play area for the kids with lots of fun activities, and has a sand pit where my son spent most of the day!!!! Friendly welcoming staff combined with authentic Kerala food cooked on the premises made our vacation the most relaxing and fun. We might have gained a few pounds at the end of our trip but we will definitely go back next year!!!
Our Experience was Excellent. Bunglow was very Excellent. Their hospitality very nice. We felt more like a homely atmosphere. Cooking, serving everything was very good and excellent. Overall amazing experience.
"This is the perfect holiday spot for family, friends or couples. You wake up to the chirping of birds and the wonderful aromas from the kitchen. Step out onto the front porch and your greeted by the lush greenery everywhere with trees and plants of many different varieties all immaculately maintained. The food was truly outstanding Kerala cuisine - they do serve western cuisine as well but i strongly recommend the Kerala cuisine for both Veg and Non Veg. For breakfast we had the appam and chicken stew which was mouth watering and idli and dosa with sambhar and spicy chutney the next day, other specialties for lunch and dinner include fried fish, mutton roast, chicken curry, avial, sambhar,rasam,papad, home made pickle and lots more. They have a play area for kids, basketball court, barbeque on request. Do take an early morning walk into the plantation and to the lake which is in the property itself. Try some of their home grown honey if available it was truly heavenly. All in all in your looking for a tranquil kid friendly place with beautiful surroundings, outstanding food at reasonable prices, this is the perfect place. I traveled from Mumbai via Madurai, which is the nearest airport - around 3 hours drive. You can also stop over at KHB enroute to Munnar or Tekaddi which are both a short drive away."
"It was indeed a unique experience to be transported back in time. The beautiful heritage bungalow has all modern amenities and is surrounded by surely a great way connecting with nature. We found beauty everywhere....so much to explore and so much to find out!
The rooms were excellent and the staff take care to ensure the place is spic and span. The food was just great and made with so much care.
There is access to a fishing pond and was a great experience for the children. The ride on the polaris around the cardamom plantation was an exhilarating experience!
So happy to be able to experience so much of beauty and greenery. I am happy the children could hear different sounds in nature, see wild flowers, just be outside on the swing and in the sand pit, visit the beautiful garden & enjoy touching the plants and just being outdoors! I think from this experience they understood what 'connecting with nature' actually means...
Cant wait to do it again!!"
"This is our second visit to this lovely property. We stayed for two nights & is an excellent place for friends and family. We were a group of 4 adults and an infant & occupied the premier rooms which are part of the main cottage. The advantage is the rooms are bigger & adjacent to the living room where we spent most evenings.
The grounds are beautiful & the front garden play area is where our 2.5yr old son spent most of his time.
The staff were helpful and the food was cooked to our preference.
Loved our stay. Highly recommend."
"I enjoyed my time on the estate. The owners and staff were very welcoming and made my stay very homely. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the walking and fishing. The kids who lived by the fishing nook were a great help during our fishing trip. Thanks for the experience."
"The bungalow is heritage, and naturally, old. The view is nothing much to speak of. But the hospitality is exceptional. The attendants look to your every need and wish, and make sure you are comfortable and well looked after. The food, Kerala style, is everything I expected, and we felt very much at home. The beds are comfortable, and the living room has old world rosewood furniture. "
"This is my second visit in two years to this amazing place. Its close to some of the scenic places like Iduki Dam, Vagamon and Munar. So if you plan on visiting these places, this would be an ideal place to stay. The rooms are very nice and clean and all the surroundings very well maintained. The food is just too too good... especially the breakfast with dosa, idli with coconut chutney. The staff at the resort were extremely courteous and seemed just too happy to serve us. I would definitely be visiting again on my next visit to Kerala."
