Welcome to Chrissie’s, our small, friendly hotel set amidst gardens and natural teak forests in a quiet part of Thekkady/Kumily Village in Kerala, South India. The well-appointed rooms, pretty garden and the relaxing ambiance of the rooftop vegetarian café/restaurant provide the perfect, peaceful location from which to explore Periyar Tiger Reserve and the beautiful surrounding countryside.
The fifteen rooms at Chrissie’s are similarly sized, but vary in appearance and feel because different colours have been used in the interior decoration. The rooms on the ground floor are the easiest to access. So, if your mobility is restricted, please book a ground floor room rather than a first or third floor room as Chrissie’s doesn’t have elevators. Unfortunately, there is no wheelchair access to any of the rooms at Chrissie’s. All rooms have private balconies, and en-suite bathrooms with 24 hour piped, hot water, showers and Western toilets. Please note that there are no televisions at Chrissie’s. There is free, fast wifi Internet in the lobby and café. Room service is available on orders from the café. And the hotel has installed an electricity backup system which ensures that even when the public power supply fails, which is a common occurrence in Kerala, the hotel should be unaffected. Apart from access considerations, the main difference between the rooms are the views: the ground floor rooms overlook our pretty garden, whilst those on the first and third floors have far-reaching forest and mountain views. If you are travelling as a family, we offer a family suite comprising of a bedroom, bathroom and sitting area which doubles as a bedroom for 2-3 children. Below are some room photos, tariff information and a booking enquiry form.
