Description

Wayanad Wild is a perfect escape from it all in the southernmost tip of the Deccan Plateau. Known as the spice garden of the south, it is filled with paddy fields, misty peaks and lush green forests.

Enjoy the company of the many species of animals; watch the butterflies flutter past your window, or a Malabari Squirrel going in search of acorns. There are many experiences to enjoy from bamboo rafting down the river past bamboo forests and tea gardens.

The resort itself has just 32 rooms, making it a peaceful retreat for couples or guests wanting a little more privacy. Each room has a balcony to sit and enjoy the wilderness that surrounds you. Similarly the restaurant opens up to the forest and there's even a stream that runs through the resort for a truly wild experience.

For those who love exploring, there are a number of different trails to discover from gentle walks to more challenging treks. Visit Lakkidi View Point or travel to the nearby Muthanga National Park, rich in biodiversity and famous for elephants, deer and several tigers.

When to go

Isolated from much of India by the Western Ghats, the climate of Kerala & Karnataka is tropical and as a result of the mountain ranges the area isn’t as dry as much of India. The best time to visit is from January through to April. While there can be the occasional light showers these are just a prelude of the wet weather to come. The weather is generally hot and humid during this early summer. The monsoon season arrives in early June and thus can wash out July and August. September is much more humid as a result of the rainy season, and the fall can be dry but with the humidity this makes it feel quite warm. There can be a little rain in the night in October and November. The temperatures cool down and the humidity lets up as winter comes in around December, with this season lasting until February when the dry spring returns. Winter can be a pleasant time to visit, especially if you’re looking to head off the beach and explore the rest of this Indian land of mystery.
