This is undoubtedly one of the best resorts in Wayanad. Our Villa was home away from home. The location is truly scenic, food is really awesome and guest hospitality is fantastic. The swimming pool over-sighting lake is truly breathtaking. Must visit place for people looking for a break from hectic schedule. Only problem is last stretch of 3 to 4 kms to resort is in bad state. However, it really didn't mattered as stay was awesome.
We wanted to enjoy the Kerala rains and this turned out to be one of the best vacations we spent . Wayanad is a very off-beat and thankfully untouched destination. The resort in itself is a blessing for all who want a quiet relaxation from the maddening city life . It is adjacent to a lake with green hills in the background. The clouds mesmerizingly played hide and seek on all three days . Its such a joy to have this view directly from our room <409> and to wake up to the sound of the rains .
We were looking for a few days of quiet and relaxation and Vistara did not disappoint. We were there for four nights in the last week of July. This is low season in Wayanad thankfully with bursts of rain and the sun shining through periodically... perfect! Vistara is located on the edge of the Karapuzha lake and the view is both serene and breathtaking. The resort manager Brijesh and his team were courtesy personified. Jinu with guest relations was always pleasant, courteous and helpful. Anand, the chef, delighted us by whipping up delicious, fresh local cuisine.
The location of this resort is excellent - may be just few yards away from the lake. Though access to the resort, the last 60m or so, specially during monsoon can be an issue. However, once you are inside the resort one is transformed to a different world with the magnificent lake, greenery, various species of birds and tranquility. The architecture of the resort is unique.
On entry we were a bit displeased as our Google maps was not working and misdirections from the locals and misleading signs lead us to the wave wayand. So make sure to call the resort to guide you if maps also don't end up working for you. The lead up road is atrocious and although they have started construction, I don't think it is going to finish any time soon considering keralas pace. But all this was soon forgotten on arrival as we were hit like a tornado with the amazing view of the lake!! There truly is no comparison.
Can't forget the view from the room. such a beautiful natural view of the mountains and the river. the cool breeze of the wind is awesome from the room. silent place. nice and clean pool and view is very wonderful. staffs are friendly.
