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

If you have a desire to see the real munnar then Wild Elephant Eco Friendly Resort is the place to stay. I had an opportunity to stay here with my wife in the first week of December and we enjoyed every moment of it.The nature here is bewitching, enchanting, and mesmerizing. The owner Jaison was very helpful and didnt miss... More

The overall experience of this hotel is average. The location is great if you are looking for a place way out on the countryside since it's about 40 min outside of Munnar. Although this is mentioned on the website. The hotel offers tours around the area but after consulting with another couple who had tried the tour we decided not... More

Most of the nicer, tranquil places to retreat are outside of Munnar, but Wild Elephant is exceptionally far (25-30 km on a terrible road). The journey there is uncomfortable in an auto, and takes 45-60 minutes driving west from Munnar. One auto did not know where it was and another refused to go that far. The location information on Google... More
