Travel Tips: Banasura Hill Resort, Wayanad

Thought it would be a good idea to take a break from those morbid What’s Your Fallback Tuesday posts. And what better a way to do that than to write about travel. And what better a destination to write about than Wayanad.

Wayanad was our second trip post marriage. The first was to Rajasthan — I’ll post my views on the Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur next week. At Wayanad, we stayed at the Banasura Hill Resort. I instantly fell in love with what I saw on the resort’s website and what you see on the resort’s website is what you actually get in reality. I’ll let the photos do the talking.

Note: On previous trips to Wayanad, I’ve also stayed at several budget hotels in Kalpetta while scaling Chembra Peak.

It takes some effort to reach this resort. You need a capable vehicle and a keen sense of direction to get there — especially when it’s pouring cats and dogs. Thankfully, D’s an excellent navigator. Below is the Swift doing her job on the road up to the resort.


If I remember right, a 3-night stay cost us approximately Rs 20,000 including food. Gorgeous location. Awesome service. Affordable. What more can you ask for?

Highly recommended.
