Wayanad is a little corner of paradise and The Jackfruit Tree is seventh heaven. It is a secluded property nestled among the tea plantations and has a stunning view of Mount Chembra from the balcony.
Manoj, the caretaker, is ever-present and Prasad and Anjana divide their time between Calicut and Wayanad. I was lucky enough for them to be present with their son, Anan, during my stay. Never will you meet a nicer family: they welcomed me like a relative and were fun, charming and generous. Manoj was also always willing to help and cooked up a feast morning, noon and night.
I leave with great memories feeling relaxed and reinvigorated and with new friends. A wonderful experience!
Thanks for Prasad and Mahooj for a wonderful stay at The Jackfruit Tree. The good reviews are well-deserved and we found everything as we expected it to be.
In terms of customer service, we felt they pulled out all the stops. The owner Prasad came over from Calicut to greet us personally and Mahooj cooked fantastic breakfast and meals for us every day - very reasonably priced we thought. We wanted to get fit (!) and running up through the tea plantations before breakfast was amazing. We had the downstairs room which has a private balcony - great if you are a Western woman and want to be able to wear your shorts for a bit!!!!
This was our second visit back to stay at the Jack Fruit Tree Hamlet and once again it was amazing. Prasad and Aparna are the perfect hosts and went out their way to make sure everything was just right. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and are so pleased have made friends with them both. At the same time we were always allowed our privacy to simply soak in and enjoy the peace and serenity of the place. As always the food was incredible, and Manoj the housekeeper was just great.
The Jack Fruit Tree Hamlet itself is set in the most stunning location and drinking tea on the terrace overlooking the beautiful scenery will always be a memory held with great fondness. Would recommend staying here anytime.
Sitting on the balcony of this place is like visiting heaven. The peace and beauty just wash through you. A wonderful sanctuary from the rich cacophony of India.
Had the most amazing time at The Jackfruit Tree. The view is to die for! The location is a little isolated, but the management arranged for transportation also.. the staff is very admirable.
I made some great friends over the trip; And will definitely go back soon!
