Great decision, as it turned out..fanatastic views, along the way; hills and the valley. Very well surfaced roads, not very wide, though; careful driving. The... More

This place is really beautiful, providing great view of the mountains and valley. The resort provides a rejuvenating atmosphere. Staff are really friendly. Food is good and the service is excellent. The resort is situated 12 km away from the Munnar town.
