Room Types at Woods Resort Wayanad

I spent 2 days working out of Woods Resort Wayanad recently. While two other posts are coming up about my stay experience and activities available at the resort, here is detailed information on room types at the Woods Resort, Wayanad.

The Woods Resort in Wayanad has 5 different types of rooms, with pricing INR 4000 per day (if you manage to get some offers on Agoda etc, non refundable, without meals) going all the way up to 19000 INR (Ebony tree house with b/f, lunch & dinner and 18% tax). This post shares details on each of these room types and which one is best suited for you.

1. Ebony Tree House: Ebony is a tree house with a scenic balcony. There are two Ebony treehouse cottages in the woods resort Wayanad. Getting into Ebony involves climbing some 12-15 odd steps. If you are ok with some climbing up and down and if you wish to enjoy scenic balcony views go for Ebony. Ebony room is spacious enough but is smaller in size compared to Oak or Cedar as it is a tree house, so if you are a large group you may prefer an additional room.

There is a pond and organic farm near Ebony. Ebony is closer to the pool and activity center but a bit far from reception. You can avail buggy service. WiFi network was bit weak in this part of the resort- staff said they would provide a Jio dongle if requested by customer. Inside view of the treehouse room below.

Ebony is the most sought after room type in Woods Resort and the most priced one. If the tree house cottage excites you, book sooner.

2. Cedar: Cedar are the most spacious rooms in The Woods Resort Wayanad. Cedar has a large bedroom plus a spacious living room with a bed, where a 3rd person can be accommodated. By paying just about 1000 INR more compared to Oak, you will be able to accommodate one extra person in Cedar. I think that is good deal for families or groups.

Cedar rooms are next to Oak, built on vertical buildings. Some rooms are on ground floor and some are on the first floor.

3 Oak: Oak is very similar to Cedar in design, just that it is a bit smaller in size of living room and does not include 3rd bed. My stay was in Oak category room. Bed room is same size in Oak and Cedar

 

Both Oak and Cedar have TV in living room, so it convenient if some people want to sleep while others want to watch TV

4. Rosewood Suite:

The name suite seems to create a feeling that it is very expensive, but Rosewood suite is the cheapest room type at the Woods Resort Wayanad. There are two rosewood suite rooms sharing the same common wall and they don’t have a balcony view. Rosewood suite cottages are at the center of the resort surrounded by kids play area, gardens and are closer to reception. 

5. Teak cottages

Teak Cottages are the second cheapest accommodation option at Woods Resort. Teak cottages do not get a balcony like Oak or Cedar. The difference between Teak cottage and rosewood suite is that Teak cottages are standalone buildings- each cottage has its own exclusive walls and surrounding, so you won’t be sharing anything with anyone. This can justify a small premium teak cottages command over rosewood suite.

Because they are independent blocks, Teak has little more window space as well, compared to Rosewood.

In all room types you get following amenities as standard

  • Kettle which can be used to make coffee, tea
  • Ward robe
  • Minibar (a small size refrigerator)
  • Television
  • Intercom
  • Drinking water (mineral water bottles are supplied now, soon they will be replaced with RO water.
  • WiFi
Additional features
  • Ebony, Oak and Cedar have balcony
  • Oak and Cedar have large living room

For two people, two extra meals= INR 6000/4 meals = about 1500 INR per meal. If you are not sure of having meals at resort or don't eat a lot you stick to cheaper CP plan and can order ala carte on need basis.
