Visited this resort in 2011. One of the best places I've ever been to. The cottages were simply fantastic. The views from the resort was breathtaking. Services offered was great. A great feeling, do visit.

I travelled to this place alone for my solo holiday. The place is a bit far from the Munnar bus stand. Takes around 1 hour and 15 mins by an auto. But the location, the breath taking views it offers is awesome. I stayed there for 3 days and completely enjoyed my stay. This place has a lovely swimming pool.... More

If your looking for a peace, and just wanting to spend time with your family and nature..then this is the place. Its away from the town, so be prepared and stock up on all your supplies. The food is decent. The swimming pool is the best part about the hotel and has a view to die for.

We opted for Wild Elephant specifically because it is far away from the rather crowded and commercial Munnar. It is a 25 km drive (and a rather bumpy one) from Munnar. The resort rests between a lush tea estate and a beautiful valley facing a waterfall that is a 20 minute trek away. For the best view and the most... More

I visited Wild Elephant Eco Friendly Resort last weekend along with my family to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary. First and foremost i must appreciate the fantastic staff, Anil,Munna and the rest of them were very very helpful to say the least. Points to note : 1. This is not in Munnar. In fact there is another fabulous route to Munnar... More

And if you go to munnar it's better to stay in a hotel outside the city. Wild elephant boutique hotel I s in the middle of the mountain... More

even though the resort is too far from munnar (approx 20km) and the place is average, The scenic location makes the ur trip worthy. Staffs are very friendly and ready to help u any time. Food is not so great. Considering the location, facilities, ambience ..the price is slightly high. Tip..... -pick cottage rooms to hav good view. -as this... More
