Ambadi thekkady was out of my expectation. Worth the place. The time we enter the property its more of simplicitor but the moment you open up the doors it fascinates your inner. Thekkady is a place where we visit to enjoy wild life. Hence the periyar tiger reserve & elephant junction is near to the hotel. This hotel has got... More

It was one of my worst experience in a hotel. The owner, a young lady hate kids.. she was asking us to keep our kids calm without speaking... She is going to spoil the legacy iPod ambadi created by her father. Good save this hotel. Also food was terribly cooked. They don't even know to make a Naan

Good Location, Good Food and Good Service. I always stay here whenever I go to Kumily or Thekkady. Parking can be a problem during peak season. Food is fantastic. Service can be slow, but it is worth the wait. Try any non veg stuff. The Stay is pleasant and all room are naturally cooled. Excellent property.

A great little hotel close to the Tiger Reserve. Friendly staff and a good restaurant with decent food options that are yummy! I would recommend for travelers on a semi-budget and who want to be close to the reserve. I'm glad we stayed here while in Thekkedy.
