� I got Booking Confirmation for Edakkal Hermitage on August 4 2013 the mail clearly states that the booking is confirmed and my booking Id is TGU0001093034 � Again on August 14 , 2013 , I get mail stating that my booking is not confirmed and suggesting an alternate 3 star hotel called as COFFEE COUNTY RESORT. � Based on the information provided by that it a 3 star property , I confirm the booking . � I entered the hotel on August 15 , 2013 around 5 PM , i was surprise that it is unrated hotel , main gate don�t have even a name board , no reception , whole property has around 2 staff , you need to steep walk for 5 to 10 min to get in to room , property is ill maintained , there is no fully fledged restaurant .There is no telephone nor mobile network , you need to walk for 5 to 10 min , just to contact the hotel staff . I am accompanied by my father in law and mother in-law , both were unable to check into hotel as pathway is steep . � I informed the same to the Travelguru and the consultant don�t even try to understand my problem , she told that she spoken to the hotel to provide alternative room , which close to the main gate , when I told her the hotel has just 4 rooms ( i.e hotel has totally 7 rooms in that 3 rooms are nonoperational) and all at the same place , she was not ready to accept the same . � As it a real time booking , let me know how the booking got unconfirmed in last time. In fact before booking through , I tried to book the same hotel through other portals , it showed as unavailable , � As you have stated the COFFEE COUNTY RESORT is 3 start Property , kindly provide me the HRACC rating , in fact hotel don�t even qualify for one star rating also. On understading entirely Travelguru has cheated me booking unavailable room at Edakkal Hermitage and in the last minute , trying to push some unrated hotel . I demand you to refund my amount .

We drove from Bangalore to Edakkal hermitage. The road is good except for the last 100 metres which is very steep. The staff were very helpful in giving directions to the resort so we had no problem locating the place. The parking space is a bit cramped. We reached there late around 4 PM and were damn hungry. The staff were kind enough to get us some bread toast and coffee and didn't charge anything extra for the meal. We had booked one night in the tree house and 3 nights in the cottage Chauvet. The tree house was neatly maintained and had a great view. Only problem was the presence of monkeys. They were trying to get in by pushing open the mesh windows which were stuck to the wall using velcro. It would have been better if the windows were made of plastic/wire meshes and fixed to the walls. Due to some confusion, the cottage Chauvet was double booked and so we were allotted a new cottage on the second day and offered Chauvet cottage for the 3rd and 4th night. We found the new cottage allocated to us to be good and decided to stay there itself. Positive aspects: 1) Small resort: There are only 8 cottages in the resort. So it doesn't feel crowded. 2) Staff: The staff are very Warm and friendly and make you feel at home 3) Neat Rooms: All rooms are clean and well maintained. 4) Food: We enjoyed the food very much. It was like home food and not oily/spicy like typical restaurant food. Negative aspects: 1) Location: The resort is on the road leading to the edakkal caves and so it is very noisy. There is the constant noise of people and jeeps going to the caves. On the first day of our stay, there was a festival in a nearby temple and they were playing loud music well past 10 PM. 2) Distance from other tourist places: Unless you plan to visit edakkal caves, there is not much that you can do here. Almost all tourist spots like pookot lake, kurva island etc are about 1.5 hours drive from this place. It is best if you have your own verhicle. The resort can arrange jeeps for day trips but it is quite expensive. 3) Not suitable for families with small children and elders: The resort doesn't have much moving space due to the rocky terrain. The restaurant is on the other side of the road and it is a steep 50 metre climb. Families with toddlers and elders will find it difficult to walk up to the restaurant and they don't have room service. 4) Candle light dinner inside the cave was a nice experience but it would have been better if they had planned in such a way that each family gets to dine in the cave exclusively. They served 4 families at a time inside the cave, which took away the charm of the experience. We had gone there during a long weekend, and they gave the candle light dinner to all the families on the first day itself. Instead if they had staggered it across 3 days. If you go during weekdays, you may be lucky to get an exclusive candle light dinner.

A Hermitage @ the Caves A Hermitage @ the Caves

by aqualungx on March 23, 2017

Where Aliens met Earthlings !!!!!????!!!!!. Edakal Caves and the Engravings takes you to an Eric Von Dainiken world of Alien theories and Gods from Outer space. At the foot hills of Edakal cave hills is an enthralling wild piece of land with a few cottages clinging on to the rock edges with an amazing view of valleys of the western ghats. Very much of an experience resort, the property has a good population of birds of all feathers. An early morning walk through the overgrown coffee plantations and tall trees, with mist all around elevates your mind to a vibrant mode with the rising sun. The restaurant serves limited dishes, but exclusively authentic to its region, but do have an enthusiastic chef to cater to your needs. Need your own mode of transport to enjoy this place and surroundings. Friendly people to take care of you!!!! ( A BLESSING WHEN NIGHT FALLS )!!!!! ITS A DIFFERENT WORLD!!!!!! You must Experience to Explain the Ecstasy !!!! Edakal Caves holds the secrets to the eternal link between mankind and the unknown!!! And the Edakal Hermitage is the right place to feel the UNKNOWN!

Curate's Egg Curate's Egg

by Cutleros on February 9, 2017

A Curate's Egg - partly good, partly bad The 'partly good' bits included dealing with the resort before we arrived in Kerala, which was very efficient. The cottage itself (Lescaux) had amazing views from the balcony, with spectacular sunsets and wildlife surrounding it. It had a very comfy bed and a fantastic bathroom, with the rock face actually within the waterfall shower room. It is a short, but very steep, walk up to the Edakkal Caves - which are worth the visit, although require a bit of mountaineering! The resort itself has its own cave, in which you can have a unique dinner, illuminated with around 120 candles on the walls. No wonder that it has been voted in the top 25 romantic dinner venues. On the 'partly bad' side: the resort was run by 2-3 young men in their 20s who had limited English so it was difficult to make arrangements for days out. The older manager did appear on one day but we still had difficulty. There is no wi-fi anywhere in the resort and would be very difficult for anyone who has trouble with steep inclines and uneven surfaces. The cottage itself had lots of switches but most didn't appear to do anything and we could only get one wall light working. There was only one electrical socket, no hairdryer and very basic toiletries - what was that small unmarked plastic bottle with some coloured liquid in it?. The room was not serviced throughout our stay of four days. The resort sells itself as an eco resort but we saw very little evidence of anything designed to be ecological friendly e.g. solar water heating or any methods to reduce water or energy consumption - half the light bulbs were traditional filament types. We were the only guests at the resort during our stay, with only four or five others expected over the previous 10 days, and no others due to arrive in the near future. It makes one wonder if it is a failed project. I certainly hope not, as, with a better level of site management, it could be a truly unique experience.

Wonderful stay Wonderful stay

I was in Edakkal hermitage for three days and I enjoyed every bit of the it. The cottages are clean and well maintained and simply superb! The staff are dedicated and courteous.Food surprisingly was very good. Very difficult to find a place for good food especially in Kerala for Vegans. The candle light dinner is the best part of the stay there. Also if we ask they take us on a mini trek within their estate for a nice sunrise and for some early morning hikes.I would gladly recommend this place and would stay there next time!

Really Nice Stay Really Nice Stay

by Rajeev N on January 25, 2017

We stayed at Edakkal Hermitage Resort on 17 to January 2017.We stayed at Lascaux Cottage for 2 nights. The view was stunning from the cottage. Nice and spacious rooms, clean bathrooms. The resort staff were extremely helpful and food was also good. The only problem was there we were the only guest in the resort. Rest all rooms were locked without any guests. Overall the resort was nicely maintained and all cottages like chauvet, edakkal, kapova looked stunning.Only Edakkal caves is very near to the resort rest all sightseeing places are little far from the resort. I would surely recommend this resort

We traveled during the January 2015 republic day long weekend. Pros: * Around 500 mts from Edakkal caves, walkable.. rather climbable :) * Beautiful property, feels like you are living amidst the forest. * Nice and spacious rooms, clean bathrooms. * This place is at a slightly elevated position, so all the rooms have a nice view. * Hotel staff are courteous and helpful. * Dinner inside the cave is splendid and once-in-a-lifetime-experience Cons: * Maintainance is a problem for properties amidst nature but for the pricing, rooms could be maintained a little better. Found a lot of cobwebs and huge spiders all around in the room. * Being a Vegetarian, food is of concern everywhere in Kerala, including this place.
