We stayed there in 2nd week of May for an office outing and took almost the entire place by ourselves. Amazing staff, very courteous, nice rooms and ncie food. Basically they pick the vegetables right from the organic garden and cook it in the next hour for a simple yet delicious meal. Rooms were good, well except may be a... More

We had a fabulous time at Elephant valley. The weather was awesome and location is so serene. The food is heavenly. Try all the veggie options since most of it is grown right next to the kitchen in the organic farm. Only regret is not spotting any wild animals. If you need a relaxed weekend, this is the place to... More

Date of stay - Feb 28th to Mar 2nd, 2014 We did a short vacation at Elephant valley (EV) last week. As we were 7, we booked 2 tents and 1 satin room. The tents overlooking the Palani hill range and the stream beneath made us feel like being in nature's cradle. Gently woken up by the chirping birds and... More

We were a group of 7 girls and we stayed at Elephant Valley Eco Farm Hotel. Firstly, I want to mention about the location. It was just awesome, in the midst of forest... it was amazing!! We stayed in the Peninsula, for which we had to cross the river. It was fine and during the night, the staff helped us.... More

The Elephant valley is a beautiful eco-resort tucked way deep in the newly created Kodaikanal Forest reserve. There is a small rivulet that flows through the resort making it fun for the kids to splash around. If you are an outdoors kind of family this is a place you'll enjoy. The staff is very friendly, attentive and reasonably efficient. They... More

This was my favorite place in India. Separated away from the noise and chaos of the city streets, Elephant Valley offers the most serene experience. The bungalows are separated from one another, providing the privacy and peace that many come here for. Although the term "eco-farm hotel" might insinuate otherwise, the rooms are very clean and well kept. The hotel... More

Using the telephone number on the Elephant Valley Hotel web site we phoned to make a booking. The price quoted for 4 adults and 2 children seemed to be more expenses than that quoted on the website, but we made the booking and paid for it. On arrival at the Elephant Valley Hotel we were told that there was no... More

We went in the month of August 2013, and it was a great experience with nature. The property is beautiful in the midst of a jungle and a river flowing through it. This place is meant for people who would like to unwind and relax, away from city's hussle. Kodaikanal city is just 20 KMs from this place, so you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Elephant valley is the last settlement on the border of the National Forest which extends into wildlife sanctuaries of Kerala. It is uniquely situated on an elephant migration route that is centuries old. This land and the rivers we share with local people blessed with prestigious vegetal and animal species including: native birds, leopards, deer, bison and elephants. Its remoteness allowed it to escape the ravages of 'modern' chemical agriculture. ... more   less
