There are tea gardens from walking distance and a beautiful waterfall a small trek away. If you are looking for an excellent location in the middle of... More

The place is great, but you have to be aware that you are booking a place (kind of) in the middle of nowhere. The roads around Munnar are not great, so don't expect to move around easily. But it is a perfect place to disconnect a bit from the world, walk through tea plantations, or enjoy some time by the... More

Inbetween tea gardens, with a.few spices trees and banana tree. 10 minute walk to waterfall. You can bath under it. Sound.of the insects which eat bananas. Service boys are.cooperative and good. Munna and Mannu, these... More

We had a great time at Wild Elephants. Really remote location set in a cardamom plantation. We went for a walk through the surrounding "jungle" in the property itself. The manager was really nice enough to upgrade us to the honeymoon resort. We turned up to munnar and negotiated a good price on the phone before we turned up to... More

I made the booking for couple of my friends and also transferred Rs. 3000.00 as an advance at least a month before the booking date. When I called to confirm the same 2 days before the arrival date, I got a shock of my life when they told me that our room has not been confirmed. This happened on 4th... More

I had e-mailed this hotel twice before we arrived but got no reply, that made me a bit nervous about arriving as it really in the middle of no where. Our reception was very poor, no welcome only a disbelief that we had booked, even thought I had confirmation. The room I booked was not available and we were shown... More

remote location, miles on bumpy, narrow winding road from the town of Munnar. Poor services, untrained staff who have no idea what they are doing. Clever web site pictures - the 'swimming pool' is hardly more than a paddling pool. Room clean but not well appointed. Lots of garbage around the hotel. Owner blamed manager for the problems I encountered... More

I was there with my family for 2 days in the first week of January. The resort itself is located on the top of a hill, in midst stunning scenic beauty. The scenery is spectacular from all angles from the resort. As is located away from the town, it is extremely quiet, we submerged into the beautiful nature, lying in... More

Apart from the good views, this hotel is appalling. For starters it is at least 23km from Munnar, not 15 as claimed and it is not a good road. How it has a certificate of excellence from trip advisor, displayed in the reception office and dining room, beggars belief. The so called deluxe bedroom was small, and reminded my husband... More

A great place to stay and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The air so clean, the surroundings so calm and quiet. Even though it was only a 2 day trip we enjoyed quite a lot. I've been to many other hotels in Munnar but this was unlike any other. The rooms even though not very... More
