The cottage room we stayed there was with natural mud walls and so aesthetically pleasing. The service was very good and we enjoyed... More

Looking at the hotel in the trip advisors we went looking for the hotel . There is nothing such now existing . We were fooled by trip advisors. Any way it would be wise too the survey or case study of the exsistance and the updation of the hotel

We went and really enjoyed the beauty of this place. We saw the organic vegetables being grown and had a beautiful walk in the forest. The stay was in the new cottages which are with mud plaster and just very environmentally friendly and we felt very welcome by the staff. The food was tasty and wholesome.

The hospitality was excellent, our personal butler and guide Dorai was always with a smile on his face. Took us to the forest to a beautiful waterfall. We also did some canoeing... More

The farm cabin is very cozy and basic but it fit into the environment very well. The property has organic farms and a beautiful stream flowing through it. We... More

There are very few places that are untouched by development and this fits the bill. Its close to the forest and we woke up to complete peace and quiet.

No visit to Kodaikanal is complete without visiting Eco Escape which is a wilderness farmstay property. We stayed at their cabin which is basic and yet very cozy.
