About the hotel
"""But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything."- Alan Watts.
Hermitage from the rush and cacophony of the city life is something we all seek once in awhile. So give yourself a break and flee to Shola Shack, an exotic retreat cradled amidst the unbounded Shola forest of Wayanad.
A waterfall gushing by, thick woods washed clean bysoft drizzles, birds and moths in exotic hues fluttering around - is this not what happy places are made of? Shola Shack is an eco-friendly haven that is committed to conserving its natural surroundings without causing any harm to the flora or fauna. You are more likely to see dense forests here than manicured lawns. So the accommodations are also organically set in the sprawling grounds. Stay in different types of comfortable modern dwellings as well as tents. The rooms, constructed from ecofriendly building materials, are tinged with a rustic and earthy decor. It comes with amenities like beds, wardrobes and other such essentials. Some of the toilets are eco-friendly as well! The tents are an ideal choice for those seeking to stay closer to nature and live the life of a joyous wanderer. Shola Shack also has a dining hall, decked up with bamboo furnishings, and the food provided here is homely, fresh and vegetarian. The place is a birder's delight, with the forest being a habitat to a plethora of exotic and migratory feathered beauties.
Give the adventurer in you the thrill that it deserves. Go on treks in Wayanads lofty hills and witness the magnificent vistas from Muneeswaran hill view point. Take a walk to Makki village, a tribal settlement, and get a glimpse of the rustic and harmonious way of life. If you are lucky, you might get to interact with the tribals. The place is surrounded by scenic peaks and a river flows nearby. Take idle walks in the pathways canopied by trees. Or simply enjoy the joy of doing absolutely nothing.
Amidst rain-washed woods, flanked by the Brahmagiri ranges, Iritty hills and located close to the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, this is a place of pure bliss and tranquillity. Sit back and relax in the bamboo armchairs placed on the sit out... drift away in thoughts, as you watch the sky change hues and the clouds sparkle with silver linings before the raindrops pour down to earth! And with lady luck on your side, you could even spot a barking deer or spotted deer right in front of you. Watch the sun hide beneath the boughs of trees, the nestlings fly away at dusk, and the sky filled with stars galore. Connect with yourself, connect with the universe, far far away from the city din!"
