Wow! Such a divine experience! This is one of the temples where we had a divine and beautiful experience. I totally loved the temple, the locality, and what not. To be honest, this was the temple that made me feel spiritual and great. I am glad to have visited this place.
Everything this place provides is a surprise... To start with a bit offroad drive leading up to the destination followed by the magic tea with the secret ingredients... And the chilling climate, the ever refreshing tea gardens, the morning trek, the superb staff, and lot more.. Just like the tea, this wonderful place is hidden from all the 'mainstream'..

One of the best places in Wayanad to detox from busy urban life!, Amalgamated with nature An amazing family holiday and very good memories, Great hospitality I highly recommend this place for people who want to detox from busy urban life! Very cordial staff. We stayed in one of the cottages We were looking for our vacation getaway which would keep us away from the Urban busy life - a place that would expose our kids to nature and more of FAMILY TIME Kids had a great experience of the travel from Bangalore to Mysore and then via Nagarahole reserve forest to Wayanad….. It was a pleasure to stay here. One of the best place to forget yourself amidst nature. It is in the middle of If U want to stay aloof from chaotic life then this the place U should visit. This place has been made for those who want a real experience (jungle critters and all!) We absolutely loved our time here, we had planned for 1 night stay but extended our stay for 2 nights, eating some delicious food and relaxing amongst the tea plantations & forest (no mobile connectivity other than VODAFONE) Accessing the place (last 1 km) is little difficult since mobile connections (goggle maps) is very weak but the STAFF is very helpful & they guided us all through the journey…… Vinod Gopalkrishnan

Stunning view, great place, great staff, helpful BUT Cottages need some repair/maintenance Linens are old and worn out and FOOD isn't good at all. I would still rate a 4 star for its view, location, and friendly staff. TO the management, please work on the food at the least and also some maintenance of the room, linen, rest assured you have a great location to always cash on tourists across all seasons.

Mesmerised with the Serenity of God's Own Country, Kerala. One of the best and memorable trips we had, will cherish forever. The resort is exactly the same as shown in the images (Uploaded on the website). Absolutely clean, hygienic and very well maintained property. Polite staff, good food (with decent selections of Indian, Chinese, burgers, sandwiches and beverages. A few products were expensive compared to the portion size and quality) Our room had a stunning view and we loved every moment. Thrillophilia offered us the best price for the fantastic property. WORTH EVERY SPEND
