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

Munnar and the wild elephant hotel were a nice surprise ! Munnar is fresh green and peaceful .. And I needed it after 3 weeks travelling in hot and messy cities . 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

Our understanding is that we want to be happy; naturally peaceful, this simplicity is how we are._(())_ Yet overtime we have managed to get so caught up in this world and our bodies that our time is focused on desire, need, greed, a timefullness. The time is now for us to return to our natural state, to feel for a... More

This hotel could be excellent but our stay was a disappointment. The location of the hotel and the view is lovely. What lets the hotel are small but significant things which are so easy to change. When we arrived we were offered a cup of tea. We assumed this was free but when we checked our bill we had been... More

We arrived at about 5pm having booked on Expedia and the staff said they had no record of the booking. It needed a phone call to the absent manager to get us a room despite the fact there were no other guests. We were told the manager would arrive at 6pm. Then we were told he would arrive at 8pm....

After a gruelling 9 km drive over potholes which threatened to destroy the suspension of the car we arrived at this fabulous spot. Unfortunately the rooms and meals did not live up to the location and we were disturbed by other guests who came in late and boisterous and were around and unbothered by their fellow guests by putting on...

1) Picturesque view from the resort(esp. room with adjacent balcony) 2) Located very near to a tea estate and waterfall. 3) Good behavior and service by staff. 4) Good food. The 9km stretch from the main on the way to Munnar that leads to the hotel is very bumpy, but it was worth travelling for. N.B.- Good for 2+ days... More
