It was rainy season during the time we visited. Resort is slightly on hill top which will cause clouds to surround you by evening. Food is a issue if there are... More

The rooms sucking they have holes in the walls. You also find a lexicon of insects and arachnids. As soon as I entered the room I was welcomed by a tarantula I killed the ferocious fellow with my suitcase. The food was appalling no even dogs will eat it.

We enjoyed our stay at this resort, which is about 9 kms along the Kallar - Maankulam road, deviating from the Munnar route. We occupied the Bamboo cottage which was cosy & comfortable for a family of 5. Lot of trekking sites, ask for a good guide (Baby chettan) & take a trip to the deep forest (4 wheel drive... More

My experience of Wild Elephant was great overall. The views are really stunning and I found it very peaceful to be so remote. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite with it's own terrace which was lovely & overlooks the waterfall. The boys who work there are very sweet and cooperative, they even took us to the waterfall at no... More

The view from our cozy room was simply beautiful .Our eyes feasted on a stretch of mountains and a truly divine water fall.We would put the main attraction of this resort to be a well kept swimming pool.With a number of chairs arranged beside it,it was an ideal place to spent the evenings gazing at the lush green surroundings admiring...

We were excited to book this hotel before our trip reading various reviews, and that it is located in a calm place. However, the journey to the hotel from the town, the hotel / resort (it's nowhere close to a resort...) was frightening at the least, the room was small and nothing to be spoken about. There was a disturbing... More
