Love to visit this place again and will recommend stay in this place to all my friends. Keep up this good work.”

“The hotel is great especially the food. I wish we didn’t have to go. It has been the best hotel I have ever been too. Even though there was a long drive too other places I still think you should be famous. Thank you, from Finlay aged 9″

- Reeta & Arun Nagarajan with his parents Gauri & T.S.Nagarajan, Bangalore

“A delightful & thoroughly enjoyable stay. We were somewhat blessed in that we had Annapara to ourselves for 3 days and were able to revel in the personable & highly diligent service & hospitality of Praveen and Shibu, and the superb food, which we’ve decided has been the best that we’ve sampled in India so far. The highlight was the overnight trek to the peak, which had all the elements of a true adventure : dramatic landscapes, unpredictable weather, a challenging and varied climb (and descent), enjoyable company and Praveen’s specially brewed tea and biscuits! It’s the small touches which have made this so special : the lanterns, the herbal water, the afternoon onion bhajis and the BBQ bananas on the peak. Minimising the sound/noise that travels from room to room would make Annapara a truly perfect & unique destination. Warmest regards to the team.”
