He is also knowledgeable of the facilities and tour and travel plans around. Very informative of him to assist in this regards. You will find it very good to be hosted by rajesh.

  • We LOVED our stay at Jungle Palace. The room and bathroom are enormous and sparkling clean with a comfortable bed. Rajesh's wife's breakfast is delicious (some of the fluffiest idlis we've had) and we spent hours on our balcony, enjoying the view and swing. Within second of arriving, we had a visit from some curious monkeys and every late afternoon we saw wild boars and bison, as well as a mangoose. When a couple of months before our arrival, I was having difficulty figuring out how to reserve our border hike, Rajesh kindly offered to buy the tickets for us. Communication with him before our arrival through whatsapp and then in person was excellent. We highly recommend a stay here!

    Samantha2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Rajesh's place was the cleanest we have seen on our trip by a long way. The rooms are large and the view from the balcony is so relaxing. We loved sitting out there watching the animals. Rajesh was very helpful organising us a safari and recommending good places to eat. We 100% recommend!

    Zoe2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Clean rooms and bathrooms with location walking distance from National Park main gate and the market is very close by too. The icing on the cake was the breakfast. It was very tasty and filling.

    Sameer2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very large room, with the luxury of hot water in the bathroom. We had a jungle view room, it was very nice and quiet. Rajesh was wonderful and really helped us to book our hike in the park ... The location is excellent too, 10 minutes walk from the entrance. and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Excellent value for money with a good breakfast. If we have to return to the region, we will not fail to return to Rajesh

    Anne-Catherine & Kervyn2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money. Great location. Close to almost everything in Thekkady.

  • In my entire stay in Kerala, i enjoyed the stay in Nishanth’s house. The amenities, home, people around and overall stay was extremely pleasing. Me and my wife felt so much safe here. He has been very co-operative in terms of helping us with local things

    Sushant2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place. Please book for a comfortable family stay.

  • Highly recommended if you are looking for a neat and clean place in Kumily area. We visited the Yodha cultural Center and we booked it just in the same day. Loved our stay . Aunt was very cooperative!

    Dalia2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was great with all required amenities and personally the nature of Nishanth was too good as like a friend. I will recommend to book only Mundakal Paradise in Thekkady.

    Rahul2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Mundakkal Paradise exceeded our expectations. It was one of the cleanest and most organized homestays we encountered during our trip. Nishanth was most helpful and provided us with excellent information about all the activities in Thekkady. We highly recommend this place if you are visiting this area.

    Rahul2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nishant and his parents are awesome. They are very helpful. Nishant booked the Kathakali and Kalari pattu show tickets for us. He also guided us about the periyar lake boat ride and nearby good restaurants. He waked us early in the morning with hot tea and guided us for booking the tickets for boat ride. It was a short but great stay

    T V Santhosh2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about the stay was fabulous including location, cleanliness and hospitality of nishant. The room is clean and spacious, good parking space, at a walking distance from periyar boat safari ticket booking center and above all, the hospitality of the host. From the day we booked his place, Nishanth provided all the information and tips that are required at new place. Overall , if you are planning thekkady on your Kerala tour,book nishanth's place without giving a second thought. Highly recommended...

    Sagar2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Accommodation: The room was very well furnished. The bathroom was neat and clean, fully fitted with the necessary amenities. Heated water is available. Clean bedsheets and towels were provided. A cloth rack was there too. Food: The home is very close to grocery shops as well as to excellent restaurants. For people who prefer home made food, there's a rooftop restaurant in the house itself. Nishanth's mom cooks excellent food and refreshments on request. Nishanth was generous enough to allow us to use the rooftop kitchen to cook breakfast. Amenities: The room is well lit and ventilated. The bathroom is neat and clean. There's a tv as well. Nishanth was kind enough to allow us to use his washing machine to dry cloths. There is ample space for parking a car. The Host: Our host Nishanth is a very polite and helpful person. He met us at the entrance and even helped us carry our luggage. He gave us tips about the tourist spots in Thekkady and the activities we could engage in. No wonder why he is an Airbnb Superhost. Location: The homestay is located at the prominent part of the town and pretty close to the Periyar National Park. Easily accessible through road.

  • Jeffy is a great host, our stay at BlessDale was very comfortable. The location of the house is very near to the Periyar National Park and the Thekkady city market. The house has a garden full of anthurium plants, spice plants & few coconut trees which gives a pleasant morning view.

  • Jeffy was super helpful, when we arrived we were greeted with a cup of tea and a friendly face. We were so pleased to have a light airy clean room after staying in some dingy places. Jeffy gave us loads of local tips on where to eat, what to do and he organised us tickets to see a local traditional dance. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Thekkady!

Also this is a liquor free space, so if you want a space away from the partying tourists and just want to relax in a silent environment then you should definitely check this out. Abdul is a great host and would definitely suggest you some good activities for you tour around.

    Abhiraj2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • It's a wonderful place to stay. Abdul is great host. He has grown lots of trees around the house and has maintained the place with lots of love and care. We could spot Malabar squirrel right up close, on the first day on the custurd apple tree on the premise. Racquet tail drongo and many birds. Abdul showed us honey making equipment, the wasp nest and trees around from spices to fruit trees which was wonderful. It was a very pleasant stay.

It is run by Sunila Girish, a homemaker and spouse of Mr.Girish Kumar, a nature interpreter and bird-watcher employed in a local resort.

    Periyar Tiger Reserve is a cornucopia of nature’s bounty at its best. Nestled in the ranges of the Western Ghats, it is the largest and also the best-known wildlife sanctuary in Kerala. Verdant hills and valleys with a centrally placed large lake with its several arms extending to creeks in the hill folds are the ideal haven for a variety of wildlife.Established in 1934 as Nellikkampatty Wildlife Sanctuary, it assumed the present form in 1950. The area was declared a Project Tiger Reserve in 1978 and subsequently the core area was notified a National Park. Mullaperiyar Dam is one of oldest dams in India. Built in 1895 across river Periyar, it inundated valleys and gorges. The river winded through forming the large water spread of 26 sq.km. At a time when wood wasn’t very dear but transportation rather difficult, many trees in the submergible area weren’t removed and they remain silent sentinels of a bygone era, jutting above the water providing perching platforms for many water bird species. A channel was subsequently made out through these dead trees and now boats take visitors to have a look at the many wild animals as they come down to the lake’s edge to quench their thirst. Presently the Tiger Reserve is 925 sq.km in extent including 881 sq.km. of core or critical tiger habitat. Tourists have access to only the tourism zone of 25 sq.km. where they can cruise in the lake, go for guided trekking along the several forest trails.
  • Sunila and her husband were very friendly and the home cooked meal we had was delicious. The location is very convenient and central.

    Divya2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We found a spacious and very clean room. We appreciated the availability of Sunila who helped us with our visits. I recommend the meal in the guesthouse. Very good family cooking.

    Catherine2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Was very nice experience to stay here. Enjoyed it. House was so clean. Didn't have any mosquito problem also. Keep it up. :-) :-)

    Anurraada2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying in Sunila's place. It was clean and well presented. Sunila was also lovely and very friendly. The breakfast was a traditional curry and dosas which were good (if you can handle curry in the morning!) A continental option would have been appreciated as breakfast was quite intense! Regardless, we would recommend this place if you are staying in Thekkady.

    David2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The home stay is well located. We visited Thekkady in September and stayed here for 2 days [Landmark- woodnote hotel] Sunila ma'am is a wonderful host, cooks great food(we relished authentic dishes in breakfast) and very prompt in delivering our requests. The main market(spices,coffee,handicrafts,banana chips) , cultural centre (Kathakali & Kalari) and pick up point for Periyar boating are very close to this stay. Enjoy your trip!

    Saurabh2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my sister stayed here when visiting Periyar National Park. Sunila and her family were excellent hosts. They helped us organise the activities we wanted and Sunila even gave us a cooking lesson. The room was spacious, clean. The shower only had hot water out of the tap not shower head but there was a bucket there for pour it over your head, we managed fine with this! Overall a lovely stay, would happily stay there again.

    Charlotte2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very large room with window that allowed us to sleep open window, for once in India because being in altitude small freshness, AC useless but present for those who prefer Very quiet street Adorable hosts

    Cecile2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the Oriole home stay. Sunila is a gracious host, and her husband Girish helped us book a hike in Periyar and even lent us a sun hat. I really enjoyed the cooking lesson with Sunila! The room had great natural light and was sparkling clean. I give it my highest recommendation.

    Arun2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Abdul, basil and family were outstanding hosts to stay with. During my stay here I got food poisoning and the family took me to and from hospital at unsociable hours ! Always made sure to see how i was feeling and look after us all. Our room was beautiful and clean like the pictures.

    Rebecca2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place is clean and has a nice rustic touch - it is well maintained. The host and his father were there to help us out with parking and related amenities. Would recommend it!

    Ashish2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • One entire floor is for the guests which offers privacy. The place is very clean. But, due to lack of kitchen, we had to go to Thekkady cafe for every meal. You can get an electric kettle if you ask to boil water for tea and coffee. Do take your own liquid soap and toilet tissue. But, apart from these, the place is very clean. Also, the warm cordial behaviour and prompt response from the host make the stay absolutely pleasant and memorable.

    Barnali2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely friendly family run place, super helpful too

    Ella2019-03-19T00:00:00Z

  • We loved our stay at the hotel, the little attention, all the staff members, always smiling, enjoying their work in a beautiful place, taking care of us... We will remind it for a while. Thanks to Prabhu, Rajesh and Mutu, Jordi... We hope coming again ! The cooking demo was amazing as the room decoration the pool and so on...

    Emilie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We only had two nights at Tamarind rooms on our way to Alleppey, This hotel is beautiful inside and out, the views from the balconies are amazing, food was fantastic, and the service was probably the best I've received in any hotel. The manager even arranged for himself and some of the staff to bring some cake with Happy Anniversary written on it, for myself and my husband into the garden in the afternoon of our anniversary. How thoughtful! It was a truly memorable visit and we will stay there again , next time for longer. The pool was also a great surprise, I got a couple of morning swims in . Highly recommended

    Annie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Sanoop2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

    Rodney2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This has probably been our favorite stay in India so far. The location for us was great, a little out of the hustle and bustle of the town, and tucked away in the hills. The room was, as advertised, looking out over the hills which is really nice and we enjoyed relaxing on the balcony with the view. It was very clean and a decent size, but not huge. Bathroom was quite big too with a good shower. Water took a little while to heat up but it did always get there in the end. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly and clearly take pride in what they do. It feels like they are trying to make this a really special hotel and they are doing a good job. The food was good and we enjoyed the cooking demonstration. We had a massage at the spa which was amazing, although you have to pay a bit for it of course! We didn’t use the pool but it looked nice, although no lounging space. Only downside would be that the WiFi wasn’t great but we’d absolutely recommend this place and would be very happy to stay again!

    Krista2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Mountain Courtyard was a great find in Thekkady set atop a hill with great views and close to nature it is a very relaxing place to be. The rooms are of a high standard, great amenities including pool, the food was very good and the afternoon tea stand was a nice touch. But what really made us feel at home was the incredible hospitality of the very friendly staff who looked after us from start to finish. Special thanks to Arun and the team on front desk who promptly sorted out an issue we had with our driver's accommodation (booked elsewhere) going well above and beyond the call of duty. If you're visiting Thekkady or surrounds then highly recommend staying here!

    Ruwantha2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mountain Courtyard has excellent views and a great food, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The personal touches by the staff were very sweet and deeply appreciated.

    Yasir2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a beautiful property, well maintained. Staff is attentive and hospitable. The breakfast and dinner spread was delicious and of wide variety catering to all palates. We tried everything and were really left longing for more. Something is always happening! In case you want to spend the day at the resort, they will keep you engaged with a lot of things to do: Cookery classes, Traditional Dance, High tea, the Spa! The Ayurvedic spa has two extremely talented therapists.... my special mention is Mr.Noby - his hands are magic, his style is a unique combination of Kalari and Marma indigenous therapies, he is a thorough professional and customer centric. Overall: our experience was BEST in Mountain Courtyard ( of all our Kerala trip, we have very fond memories of this resort and my heart still skips a beat and longs to go back ) Special thanks to Mr. Samal Sankaran!! Thank you Mountain Courtyard!!

  • The house is located away from the village, in a beautiful and very quiet environment. The room is large, pleasantly decorated and perfectly clean. the terrace with a nice view of this mountain scenery is also very nice and allows you to live outside in complete independence. But all that would be nothing without the smile and the kindness of flow, with the little care for its hosts, putting at their disposal all its good addresses. And especially do not miss the different daily breakfasts ... ... an Indian festival

She was very kind to suggest us the local best places to visit, infact she booked tickets for us for kalari and kathakali art shows in a jiffy..she was super fast;) .she suggested good restaurants, spice plantations also. we loved the warmth and friendly nature of Debby, comforting us with our own space and enjoyed the trip and stay.

  • A good host. Was very helpful with local tips. Food was excellent

    Ashish2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sibi is a wonderful host and very helpful person, he help me to book the activity tickets in advance since there's no online booking available. His home stay is worth every penny and very close to eco tourism center, where all the periyar forest activity bookings can be done. If you are looking for budget stay, then you should definitely consider it

    Pavan2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sibi and his wife are wonderful host. Everything was as shown in pictures and we loved our stay there.They helped us in so many ways from food to tips around the place. I will definitely visit again to cherish the view from balcony. Thanks Sibi for accomodating us even when you had other plans and special thanks to Mam for arranging breakfast for us on time.

    M2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place to stay if you want a peaceful stay. Just the right distance from the city to avoid the city's chaos. You can easily drive to the local attractions and the major attraction here, the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is very close and can be reached in 5mins drive. The place offers a beautiful view from the balcony. There can be some monkeys around the place, so beware on what you leave at the balcony. Above all, I loved the place for its cleanliness and great views.

    Rahul2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • If you are one of those types who needs a lavish room with typical high rated hotels then do not select this place. I would totally recommend this place for anyone who loves nature and craves for home cooked local food. Mr Sibi is a very humble person and will address all your questions. Getting to the location is slightly tricky but this is where Google maps didn't fail us, we thought that we were lost as we hit the end of the road and we would see nothing but the edge of Periyar wildlife sanctuary ahead of us. This is where I called up Mr Sibi and he politely told us that we had arrived, his wife was in the balcony of the house and told asked me to drive my 4x4 carefully into their parking, it was very kind of her to do so. The room is directly facing the forest and any wildlife observer would pick this destination as you can see Sambur deer, wildboars, Indian macaques right outside the balcony. At night it was very peaceful with pitter patter rains and sound of the forest, a few frogs croaking and calls from the deer could be easily heard. I wish I had more time and I could get some more of the home cooked food here and just enjoy the wildlife from the room. I totally thank Mr Sibi and his wife for our incredible stay.

    Rohan2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Due to last minute holiday plan I couldn't get rooms in my usual expected places so decided to try Airbnb for first time.... I was bit apprehensive about the experience till I reached there. We stayed for 2 days and were very touched with the kind of welcome we got from Sibi and family. They were very helpful and guided us for our tour. Since the day we landed in kerala I wanted to try authentic Appam but was not lucky to find it. I just mentioned it to Mr.Sibi once and next morning we were treated with some delicious home cooked appam breakfast with veg. Stew..... I will recommending this place to all my friends...from my next holiday I am going to ditch the hotels and going to try only Airbnb...

    Rupali2019-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • The space is as described on Airbnb. Clean and comfortable. Sibi and his family are very nice and made me feel welcomed at all times.

    Neil2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • My stay there was really amazing. In regard of hospitality it was like home and in regards of comfort and convenience it was like a hotel with personal touches from the host. I opted to take almost all of my meals from them and those were very satisfactory as we don't prefer restaurant like foods during a long tour. I, despite of being a Bengali, didn't find any problem eating their foods. This property is situated just beside the forest as appears in the photos displayed in the airbnb site. I can whole heartedly recommended it to all people those who prefer to stay in a place close to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of a typical city life yet from where the main township is easily accessible and a place of stay with all comforts and facilities that one usually gets in his or her own home.

  • Sometimes good fortune smiles and you arrive at a place that far exceeds your expectations. Bincy and Jobin's delightful Homestay in beautiful Thekkady is just such a place. Attentive hosts, immaculate facilities, great food (available from Bincy's kitchen if you book), beautiful garden, and good location just a short walk from the entrance to the National Park are all good reasons to stay here. I wish I could have stayed longer.

  • We had a lovely time here, it really is a home away from home. Our hosts were very helpful in organising excursions for us and were very friendly and easy to talk to. The food was very delicious, breakfast was provided every day and one evening we also had dinner which was very yummy, way better than any of the restaurants nearby. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is very quiet tucked behind their beautiful garden which you can sit outside and enjoy. They made every effort to ensure we were comfortable with regular, delicious cups of tea :) I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

    Sophie2018-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The homestay is central in Kumily but the room was set back from the road behind beyond a very pretty garden so was very peaceful. Our hosts went to a lot of trouble to ensure we were comfortable and had a good stay. We had a cooking demonstration at their home on our last night, which was good fun and reasonably priced. We really enjoyed talking to the family as well. Their children are exceptionally polite, considerate and a credit to their parents.

    Lee2018-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Kumily? Why would you even look at anywhere else - oh yes this place might be booked. A small homestay that stays true to its roots of homestay and being with a family. A lovely room, clean, all the amenities you could require; good loo, lots of hot water, fan and mosquito net plus excellent wifi. Bincy and Jobin have created a garden of Eden out of old trainers, water bottles and small pots and clearly they are committed to an eco approach to their homestay. We enjoyed our cookery lesson, well worth experiencing and even though we have completed a number of cookery lessons over the past few years in India we had lots of new tips. We were shown great kindness in may ways and that combined with Bincy generous nature and easy laugh and humour combined with Jobins generosity in answering our many questions meant we arrived as strangers and left as friends.

  • Amazing hospitality by Basil and his parents. Really a superhost. Kumily and Periyar are places of activity and all u need is a good place to rest rather than spend expensively on resorts. This ticked all boxes. Will go back again and also recommend to anyone who's planning to kumily/Thekkady. The place was so clean and the hospitality of Basil's family left us with a great feel while leaving kumily.

  • Very very nice place to stay! Host is a very humble fellow! The property has the most beautiful place for kids playing! Very safe and peaceful place.

  • Nice place. A fantastic host with invaluable local tips

    Diwakar2017-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fazel personally drove us to the plantations and elephant shower venue. He is very accessible and helpful person and knows the place very well. His support crew was very responsive and offered us breakfast/coffee. Fazel is a great host!

    Sai2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent stay at Fazel's place. The place was clean, pictures are accurate and the hospitality was great. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area

    Supreet2017-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fazel is the nicest guy in all of India! That is the headline for the review and sums up the stay. He's very friendly and well-known, well-connected. Knowing him is what made the stay incredible. The homestay has a lovely appearance. The rooms are clean and beautifully prepared with complimentary soap, shampoo and water. There was no need for AC in the cool climate of Kumily. There were a few issues with the hot water and noise but I'm happy to overlook it because of the rest of my stay was so wonderful. The family provided great food for breakfast and dinner every day at a good price. When I asked, Fazel helped me in finding the best prices for spices, coffee, clothes and other purchases. He helped arrange spectacular experiences with friendly locals, going to the deep jungle outside of the touristy area. Fazel is still helping me after I've moved on to Munnar and new areas. I trust him dearly. This has got to be the best place I have stayed and will have stayed in throughout my three-week trip in India. If I visit Kerala again, I will definitely stay here again :-) This review is coming from a very critical and candid English solo backpacker - even I would be sceptical reading such a positive review but there's definitely no need to be :-)

    Our tree-house is situated in the midst of thick cardamom plantation where we have tried to blend Agro cum Ecotourism. Here we desired to spread agricultural awareness along with ecological service. Nights are serene which gives you the real essence of jungle where one sleeps under the lullaby of Cicadas. There are more than 80 species of birds making our destination an important birding area.
    All cottages are designed in such a way that they stand 10 feet above the ground giving a tree House feeling. Instead ofstaircase, we constructed ladder type stairs for giving you a true machan feeling. Therefore we don't recommend it for old aged people having issues in climbing ladders as well as pregnant ladies. All cottages are separate with an attached bathroom and a beautiful balcony to relax and enjoy the bird diversity. There are five such cottages. Each cottage is double occupancy affording maximum 3 people. Therefore this property is suitable for a team of not more than 15 person. We don't have heater for hot water but can be arranged on request. Rooms are free from television, so that the natural ambience is held intact. Morning and evening time as the best with the cacophony of birds of around, like a soothening balm for tired heart and soul, in other words, an ideal location for Bird Watchers. We provide delicious and traditional kerala type home made food but since it is not include in the package like breakfast, will request our guests to inform us if they are looking forward for homely cuisine.
    Thekkady in Kerala State , India 's largest wildlife sanctuary is a dream destination for any tourist visiting India. The 120 years old 'Surki' dam built across Peryiar, Poorna in Vedic parlance, is a major tourist attraction. This sanctuary is spread over an area of 777 Sq.Kms, surrounded by an artificial lake over an area of 25 Sq.Kms.The Country's sole Tiger reserve, Thekkady, with its bountiful treasures of tropical flora and fauna is the ultimate reservoir of many an endangered species and a rich tribal culture. Thekkady is a pleasant heaven on earth for those who love nature
  • Monsoon Retreat is situated amidst cardamom, banana and pepper plantation and this is a great location, specially for bird watching. There is 'Green Park' spice plantation and Ayurvedic hospital /massage clinic nearby and both are excellent. The location is ideal for safari to Periyar Tiger reserve. Subish is a great host, offering local tips and quick to arrange trips, including transport. The entire team at Monsoon Retreat is very welcoming and puts in extra effort to make the guests comfortable. We would definitely visit the place again and recommend it for nature lovers looking for a relaxing stay.

    Anand2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place is midst of a plantation so bird watching was quite fascinating. The rooms were clean and tidy on arrival. The food was prepared by the Owner's mother and she made sure to ask our preference and kept our tummy happie :) They even arranged transportation (auto) to the town; Arun & Sitara were very supportive and guided us to a lot of activities and showed us through the place. We had a great time! :)

    Srividhya2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • A good place to stay. It is in midst of the trees that Subish has planted, so gives a feeling that you are staying in midst of a small jungle. Offers basic amenities, great local tips from Subish and the hospitality from Subish and his mother is amazing. All in all, a place worth visiting if you are a nature lover and want to spend some quite time.

    Rituraj2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Subish was a great host. He helped us with hassle-free check-in and gave us good tips on local visit. Recommend this property to those who would like to enjoy nature at its best.

    Gopalakrishnan2018-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in a home 10ft above ground in the middle of the jungle / cardamom plantation is a unique experience, and it was the highlight of my very first trip to India! I've already recommended Subish's home to a friend, and you should stay here too :) The room is spacious and has large windows on 3 sides so you get a great view of the greenery all around. The bathroom has warm water, and the balcony is perfect for morning yoga amongst the trees or spending an evening with a book before sundown. Mosquitoes and other insects are minimal (certainly fewer than I expected). We woke up each morning to approx 23° Celcius weather (early December) and the sound of various birds singing. Subish's mum prepared delicious breakfasts and dinners (priced separately and well worth it) including puttu, uppuma, dosa, pumpkin curry, tapioca and dhal. The coffee comes from beans right from the property. We learned a lot about forestry and sustaining the local economy from a couple of conversations with Subish. We went for a nature walk on his recommendation and our guide showed us flora, and fauna including langurs, Indian gaur (similar to bison) and deer. Getting there: you'll need a car and driver to take you to the home and drive you around for your daily activities in town or at the national park, the Periyar Tiger Reserve. Subish will be able to recommend a driver and likely offer accommodation for him too.

    Sonia2018-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location in the forest, among the chirping birds. Loved the environment all around. Welcome tea prepared by auntie (Subish's mother) was very refreshing. All throughout our stay dinner was prepared by auntie and was very homelike..authentic kerala style. The receptionist / assisstant (Sudha) was very co-operative in accommodating us. Best part - sleeping in a tree house. Great work by Subish in maintaining Monsoon Retreat.

    Jayesh2018-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful. Right in the middle of a plantation, you'll be permanently serenaded by birds and cicadas. Subish is passionate about the jungle and his research projects, and has a load of tips of great places to go in the area: Elephant junction, the Spice Garden, and (if you have kids) a bit of 'Go Ape' style action at Rope and Ladder. It's out of the bustle of Kumily town, but easy to reach in a rickshaw for a few rupees.

    Ed2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful experience was had, staying in this twin treehouse with my husband and family. Beautiful location and wildlife with a warm and friendly host who was informative and interesting and had a real passion for the area. The family and staff were lovely and the evening meal Subish's mum cooked was delicious and plenty even though we added an extra 2 guests at late notice. The Indian breakfast was a new experience for us and was good but may take some getting used to for some, so would recommend to ask for something different the night before if you fancy something plainer like toast or cereal. The staff couldn't have been more lovely and would do anything for you. To note, this is a treehouse jungle experience so expect a few creepy crawlies and enjoy the wildlife The birds there were stunning and rare with some interesting birdsong, and the sound of the cicadas ( sometimes loud) were calming. We all loved it here.

  • A delightful host and lovely hotel - thank you so much for having us. A great stay!

    Will2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, clean, modern finishings and a delicious homemade breakfast! Very hospitable!

    Kate2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say enough about how wonderful our caretakers are! They truly treated us like family making sure we were always cared for, safe and felt at home. We have truly found friendship with them and can’t wait to return during our next trip to India. The breakfasts were excellent! They accommodated our need for our children’s lack of tolerance for spice. They were able to prepare meals that had no spice but lots of flavor perfect for our children. My husband and I were still able to enjoy the Indian breakfasts as well. I’m very particular about rooms I stay in during travel and the rooms at Bamboo Creek checked off every box: hard surface clean floors, white beddings and towels, warm water western showers and toilets and no mold in the bathroom (which in India is very hard to come by). As an American Bamboo Creek, and most of all our hosts, really gave us the comforts of home while celebrating Indian Culture!

    Angela2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful stay with the host, both of them spoke with us very friendly, food was awesome level - appam and kadalai(Kerala special) and they give 20% offer on elephant safari, that was extra bonus for us. Over all it was a wonderful stay

    Arun2018-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here with my family for a night and I can undoubtedly say that it is one of the nicest place I have ever stayed at. The hosts ( Leon's parents) are an amazingly warm and sweet couple who made our stay so comfortable. The place is spectacular with spacious rooms and nice clean attached washroom. It is situated very close to the main market and other places of interest. The hosts also served us yummy breakfast and provided us with their cheerful company throughout. If you visit Kumily then this is definitely a place to stay to enhance your experience :)

  • Neeraja is an incredibly warm, generous and dedicated hostess, whom we immediately took to heart. The room is lovely, super clean and convenient, with a nice big balcony on which a couch is available for easy reading or just resting. We were incredibly cooked and were allowed to accompany the family to the procession, which was a great experience for us. In addition, Neeraja is Doctor of Ayurveda and she has treated Christoph very well in her practice. A big thank you to Neeraja and her parents!

  • Debby and her husband are an extremely hospitable couple. They have a wonderful house which is extremely comfortable and clean. Communication with her was easy and her replies were prompt and detailed- she made every effort to make our stay convenient and possible. She also gave us great tips on what to do and see around the area. Would highly recommend her lovely house if you’re looking for a warm, simple stay in Thekkady!

    Christopher2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a local experience, you get it right here!! Debby is a warm-hearted host how always looks after her guests. We were constantly able to refill our water at her place which you can see on the pics. It was a bit irritating at first because it seemed like living room and kitchen were for travelers use. Room was very clean and worth the money. Also her daughter was very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, there’s not much to see around and proper restaurants were hardly walkable (if you don’t wanna go for streetfood) . You also have to make sure you don’t mind Tuktuk sounds as there is a small street passing by. We were struggling with a few things and Debby always helped out quickly. She made us feel like home and we would definitely recommend her place!!!
