You could take a bus till Kallar junction and then an auto till the resort should cost abt 200 bucks. rooms are as they appear in the photos but its smaller comparatively. Tree top cottage even has an attic bed and its cozy and nice. Food is... More

Being in real reserve forest the feeling of being in the wild is well felt, the rocky ride through the poor road makes the journey tiring but the breath taking views and the refreshing environment at the property just rejuvenates the whole body and...

The place is located at some distance from Munnar. But it is a very beautiful place to be in. You would be completely satisfied to be there as the staff is very coorperative and courteous. The place is absolutely serene and lovely.

The place is located 23kms from munnar town. You have to travel a distance of 9kms into dense forest on munnar to mankulam road. Though the road is not in a good condition you will forget everything once you reach the resort. Its location makes you feel like life has a new meaning in the lap of nature. Staff are... More

Resort Exotica was one of the best resorts I've visited over a long time. It felt so homely, I never got homesick. The place also packs a swimming pool, along with the view for a lifetime. I would love visit there again and again. The pool is best gives you an amazing view even from there.

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
