The Vythiri Resort is at complete harmony with nature and has eco friendly cottages that might require you to share your room with a tree or a slab of rock. While trying to recreate a ‘tribal village,’ the owners have used local mud to dress the cottage exteriors and everything is rustic yet ‘designer.’
Very boring because activities were not available. We felt freezing cold in our room with no way to block out the cold air as many of the openings were screened but had no glass. The manager was bossy and didactic - he insisted on lecturing us about the resort facilities for about 15 minutes and ordered us not to be late for meals. A bit over the top! We were very sad for our driver that he was unable to use the accommodation provided for him due to rampaging monkeys, as the door to the drivers' quarters was broken. The resort did not attend to fixing this although he asked them to. Not only did it mean he was forced to pay for his own room in town, he was not right there all the time in case we needed him. However, the games room and restaurant staff were extremely nice and tried very hard to accommodate our food needs (although the standard of food was in general average at best), the room was large and nicely appointed (but the pillows and bedding surprisingly were very poor) with a great view and the best hot shower ever - which we sorely needed to warm up before bed..... The worst part of this accommodation was the WiFi which was available only at the games room which meant a slippery walk through the rain each time we needed to use it, and having to work outside in the cold and in public, instead of in my room. The resort deliberately did this, they informed us, to make sure people would enjoy nature and not watch YouTube. Not OK....Read More

Warm and welcoming, fantastic food and service. Comfortable bed. Tree house was a unique experience.
