Our Easter vacation was most memorable this time around as we stayed at ElaEcoland. My kids and parents felt it was the best vacation we had so far in India. Like most of the comments, DO NOT expect luxury or room service etc. If you can understand this and come with no expectations barring that your going to be one... More

We were recommended by our friend Sam who visited here last year. Superb location, very peaceful settings and simple accommodation. Do not expect any luxury settings of a resort at ela ecoland. Property is raw, rustic and very beautiful. What we loved is the location and food here, no continental or Italian or even Chinese but simple Indian food cooked... More

We had a great holiday at Ela, a simple property away from town very close to the stream, its best when its not crowded. Great homely food from the caretaker there and served us hot. We had a bath at the stream and I'm sure its amazing during monsoon. There is no luxury of rooms or a front office or... More

We had a great holiday at ela ecoland during our stay in Munnar. We were family and friends and took 5 rooms and the entire property was allotted to us. Totally private holiday with great food. This is an ideal place if you can compromise on the luxury of a resort. Beautiful settings and does not look like a resort... More

The web page and sadly some reviews drew us to what should have been a haven of peace among nature. Unfortunately nature, in the form of mould had invaded the rooms. It is understandable that the dampness of the jungle/forest will creep up on the facilities but this does not excuse the noticeable disrepair of the structures and the facilities.Floor... More

We stayed in the treehouse for four days, and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is really something extra, and it´s SO great to stay in the middle of the nature. Muthu and his wife really took good care of us - the food is amazing! I also want to recommend Riyaz, the driver who work together with Ela... More

We stayed here as a group of 7 adults and 4 kids. This place is away from the noise/crowd of the Munnar town and yet not very far. So you can get the experience of jungle living at the same time you need not travel very far to reach the town for food or other activities. This place isnt the... More

I came with my family, and booked the Tree house with 3 cottage rooms on 7th December. Property had a really forest homely feel, and the few staff was super courteous always ready to serve us.

Stayed for 3 nights 4 days @ Elaecoland with Family (spouse & 2 kids) in Rockhouse rooms. One of the most peaceful holidays we had. We live in a metro and this is exactly what we wanted. Peaceful, simple stay in the woods. Few minutes climb to the rockhouse, its secluded built on top of the rock with wooden structures.... More
