Highly recommended this property + Great location among trees and a short walk from the main city . A relaxing place, spacious and very clean room. The balcony was perfect for enjoying the greenery. I recommend the hotel closed eyes. - Nothing. plan to visit again soon

This lovely hotel is a block from the little town of Kumily. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well designed. Each has a balcony looking out into the garden area. There is a rooftop pool and a shaded sitting area. The restaurant is excellent. The breakfast is exceptional. Adel, the owner, is so nice and welcoming with great advise about local activities. Be careful though. It is so nice you don’t want to leave and the likely purpose of your visit is to go trekking in the nearby park!

This is a gem not to be missed. A quiet retreat set in a beautiful garden filled with wildlife and greenery. The welcome by the owner/manager Adel sets the stage for a respite from travel for the visitor. Greeted with a warm cup of tea or coffee...or cool lemon juice, Adel made us feel at home immediately. The accommodations were clean and welcoming. We spent hours on our porch just enjoying ourselves and watching the monkeys at play. The views from the top floor are not to be missed. The pool and yoga room were inviting. Location is right outside Periyar National Park. Breakfast was delicious. The staff was kind and helpful. The price was extremely reasonable. I would have been willing to spend more. I cannot say enough. I only wish I could have spent more time there.

Chrissies was just lovely. The owner and his staff were so friendly and accommodating, we couldn't have asked for more. He personally took us to our room, which was probably the nicest, cleanest and cosiest room we had stayed in during our whole trip. Beautifully decorated with a lovely balcony and lush surroundings. He was always around to offer advice and help with making bookings and when we decided to leave a day early he even refunded us, which was above and beyond what we'd expected. We were greeted with smiles and a friendly chat every day and even invited to join him and selected guests for a new year's eve celebration on the roof. If I ever went back to Thekkady, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. We absolutely loved it.

The owner/manager (Adel) and his team are what make Chrissie's special.... I've never had such a warm welcome on arrival..... the exceptional hospitality continued throughout our two day stay. Adel is clearly someone that thoroughly enjoys the hospitality business and strives to do everything to make his guests happy. The rooms are set well back from the entrance and up many flights of stairs (the staff carried all our bags so that was no issue). Our room was on the first floor with a large balcony with comfortable chairs. The room was a good size with space to spread things around. (There was a damp smell in our room, so I would request a room on the third floor if available, I'm assuming they may not have that smell). The balcony was great to sit and chill out, looking onto the lush vegetation and tree's. We took the three hour jeep safari suggested by the hotel which we really enjoyed and would recommend. Adel also arranged tickets for the local martial arts show, which should not be missed, fabulous show. Breakfast is quite a feast, geared towards western tastes with a huge selection of homemade products. Sourdough, jams, mozzarella cheese and the most delicious peanut butter, etc. etc...... local Keraka dishes also available. All laid out buffet style with as much coffee and tea as you want. They have people volunteering from around the world which gives Chrissie's a wonderful upmarket hostel feel to the place. (Particular mention of Yuri, who was so enthusiastic in explaining all the homemade delights at breakfast as an example of this). The housekeeper was also a lovely lady, always smiling and so friendly. I had some laundry done which came back all folded and buttoned up at such a reasonable price.... Daily newspapers are supplied and free filtered water, nice touches... In summary, Adel and his team are what makes it special and create a large family feeling to the place where everyone is equal. Such a warm welcome everytime you walk back in the door.
