Forest Village, Khanvel
Forest Village is on the Khanvel–Jawahar road, about 4 km from the Khanvel junction. It is a quiet resort with around six units, and each unit has two self-contained rooms, a central living room, and a very spacious sit-out area. There is a nice lawn just outside the sit-out area. At a time, 12 families can stay in the resort.
Rooms are very well-designed with French windows on two sides of the room. Apart from the main bed, there is also a small low-floor bed by one of the French windows. Bathrooms are large with plenty of natural light.
Restaurant is open only to the boarders.
Good food. Great service. Very courteous and helpful staff.
