A beautiful stream flowing right in front of our rooms! we were 20 of us from chennai. Experienced one of the best holidays. Location, Rooms and especially the food was just awesome! We loved the entire concept of the property, untouched and unspoiled by concrete structures. Green everywhere with tall trees, spices and fruits. Must experience a small mountain to... More

We were planning to stay in a tree house from very long time, finally our dreams came true at Ela ecoland. Tree house is well above 30 feet height with spectacular view of the stream and misty mountains. Loved the birds around the tree house, beautiful music from the birds early morning. Great Breakfast from Mari, authentic Puttu and Egg... More

Ela is beautifully located 15kms away from town at Mankulam road, its a beautiful property facing a stream. We were 13 family members who took over the entire property for 3 days. One of our best holiday, real fun and great food. Bonfire and music face a stream with our own barbecue. We made Buffalo steak with home made spices... More

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
