General

View of the Amazing Forest Resort Stay In Lakkidi

Within the rainforest of Wayanad, nests the Amazing Forest Resort Stay in Lakkidi showcasing ethnic Kerala architecture.

The inviting exterior, so classic and typical of the region, leaves you feeling privileged to be experiencing such an authentic yesteryear ambiance. Located at an altitude of 1,300 meters above sea level, this terrain sees some of the highest rains in the country thus leaving the atmosphere around this Forest Resort extremely cool and stunningly verdant.

The natural water body on the premises reflecting lush greenery is enchanting and invites every soul to gaze on it without being time bound at this scenic canvas of nature.  The mist melting against the tree tops creates the most surreal drama. The sound of water ripples and the chirping of birds play a soothing background score.

Spread across 22 acres in a pristine valley, the number of cottages at this amazing Forest Resort Stay in Lakkidi are restricted to a minimum to maintain a forest retreat elegance. It houses 8 wooden and 13 brick cottages. Each of the accommodations is cozily tucked away into the greenery providing breathtaking views around theses abodes of tranquility. The plush interiors in dark wood are a kaleidoscope of wood carving techniques. The wooden seating on the veranda reminiscent of a bygone era of local architecture is comfortable well as opulent. Wooden paneling on the walls in the 7 wooden cottages is the quintessential mark of ethnic accommodation in Kerala. Apart from the secluded honeymoon villa and 4 independent cottages, all the other accommodations have 2 or 3 rooms with a common veranda and roof. Each of the rooms is well-appointed with comforting and luxurious amenities.

The food at the multi-cuisine restaurant is extremely flavorful and satisfies even the most demanding of palates. Fishing, soft trekking, bird watching, nature walks, indoor and outdoor games, Ayurveda on request, and a state-of-the-art conference cum recreation hall all add up to the wholesomeness of this surreal forest getaway.

Things to do

This Forest Resort is a heavenly abode where one can spend hours soaking in the breath-taking views and gazing at its placid water body on which lush forest reflections sparkle with vibrancy. Fishing here is a laid-back activity to help you relax after an eventful outing.

Set out on a natural walk that is rejuvenating and refreshing treating you with crisp sceneries from the terrain. The flora and fauna of Western Ghats will impress every scrutinizing traveler. Trekking here is a popular activity amongst thrill-seekers. The plethora of birds on this stretch of Nilgiris biosphere will leave every bird watcher awestruck.

Ayurvedic services can be arranged on prior booking to recharge your body and mind the traditional way. The conference cum recreation hall can play venue to corporate as well as family events. The Resort arranges sightseeing trips to popular Wayanad attractions. Take a guided safari through the heart of the dense wild flora and fauna in Muthanga or Thoppetti wildlife sanctuaries for a one-on-one with species such as elephants, deer, tigers, monkeys, and numerous birds and butterflies. A tranquil boat ride through Pookkotte Lakeor a laidback cruise in a catamaran through the Banasura Dam reservoir, the largest earth dam in India, constructed across the tributary of the Kabini River, are best bets for unwinding.

The Edakkal caves with rock etchings as old as 5,000 years are a must watch. A visit to the Tirunelli Temple and a dip at the Papanashini River are considered to wash away all your sins. Picnic at the Kuruva Islands to experience uninhabited evergreen forest. For a more serious adrenaline rush and adventurous outings, trek to Pakshipadalam, Lakkidi Viewpoint or Banasura peak and experience the thrill as you brave the dense forests and steep peaks. Meenmutty Waterfall, cascading from at a height of 300 meters in three separate tiers, is a delighting sight to watch and a 2-km adventurous trek can get you atop the falls. Soochipara Waterfall, thundering from a height of 100 to 300 feet has a pool below for adventure sports like water rafting. Chembra Peak, the tallest peak in Wayanad, is a steep climb but the panoramic views of Wayanad and a heart-shaped tranquil lake on the route are worth every effort.

SelfRoadiez Review

Nestled amid thick tropical vegetation, living at this resort is reminiscent of living in the woods. Situated in the beautiful hills of the rainforest at Lakkidi, 17 km from Kalpetta town in Wayanad, this rustic resort is exactly what you are looking for if you are the adventurous type and a must for all nature lovers.

The approach road is via an off-road terrain of around 2 to 3 km and is nothing short of a fun-filled roller coaster ride. What is sure to strike you is the lack of manicured lawns or manmade landscaping at this resort. The views that greet you are totally natural and untouched. Situated on 22 acres of natural beauty with 21 cottage, each of which is built in the traditional style of Kerala architecture.

The tinkling of the stream running by the cottages is music to the ears along with the humming of the birds and insects. Forest trails, small rapids, and huge rocks with little pathways carved in to reach the cottages dot the resort. The cottages are a short distance from the reception area and are accessed through steep walkways. Well, you are living in a forest, so there is no intercom facility. Instead, you have a natural pond with clear water from the spring.

Authentic Kerala cuisine and an extremely friendly staff enhance the experience. There is an indoor recreation room with a few games like carom and table tennis as well as a small play area for kids. You can bring along a bicycle for the kids to explore the surroundings. In short, a perfect forest retreat in an idyllic setting!
