True to its tagline "a date with nature". It is indeed in the midset of Jungle. Right from the jeep drive, it was a thrilling experience. We checked in on the 24th of april and checked out on 26th. Truly a jungle experience. Awesome food (simple with variety, home-made taste and fresh), best place to unwind and relax. Far far...

This place scores very high on location / scenic beauty and the service the team delivers . Because of its small size the entire place is dedicated to delivering customised experience that one wants .I highly...

First thing first, location is so good that it would take some time for you to realise that such a well functioning and complete resort can exist at such a remote place. Yes, the resort is in deep woods and only a 4WD can take you till this place. Don't even think of trying your car. Definitely a no for...

We really enjoyed our stay at Lantern stay about a week back. The location is beautiful, and really close to nature. No disturbances, except for the occasional motor/generator for electricity or water I guess. The tree house is especially charming, rustic yet comfortable enough. The only recommendation I have is to close off the bathroom completely, as currently it is...

Its the location and the friendly staff & amazing food that makes this place special. Its better to book early as they are a very sought after resort in Wayanad. You have to park your vehicle in a tea garden and make your way into the resort in a 4x4 jeep, its an amazing experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The journey begins with an exciting Jeep drive to the resort. You'll be in the cradle of a holistic experience during your time at Lantern Stay. If you are the type who wants to stay away from the urban humdrum, and hate those irritating weekend calls, you are in the right place. We are 6-km away from anything with an engine and that can honk. Yet we are just a call away from picking you up from Kalpetta, a well organised town in Wayanad, North Kerala. ... more   less
