This is a one of a kind accommodation. Elephant valley is the real deal when it comes to hill station resorts , with its rustic colonial cottages scattered amidst 130 acres of coffee plantation nestled at the edge of a reserve forest. Its a visual treat for all your senses. We stayed here for two nights divided between the honeymoon... More

Stayed at Elephant Valley last weekend and just thrived there. We visited as a long weekend from Bangalore, to escape the pressures of the city, so took overnight trains both ways and reached the resort using two local buses and a jeep for the last leg. The staff are friendly but not intrusive. The food is delicious and most ingredients... More

We did a Kodaikanal trip in the last month of May and chose Dune elephant valley ecofarm hotel as we had loved the Pondicherry Dune hotel experience. Stayed there for only a day/night - a very different experience from the Pondicherry hotel. So if you're hoping to relive that experience, then this isn't the place. But this resort - way... More

Lovely surroundings, away from tourists, great organic food but with rains came a lot of reptiles & thats not a good thing with ladies in your group. Frogs all over the room, all kinds of other worms to a point where we cut our trip short. The bathrooms also were not the most hygienic for a 5000Rs room. Overall, i... More

Our group consisted of two families (3 adults and 4 kids). The two days we spent at Elephant Valley gave us a lovely, peaceful break. We booked two side-by-side rooms in the Riverside block, which lies on the other side of a river that cuts through the 130 acre farm. The block is a 10 minute walk from the restaurant... More

One place for nature lovers and preferring silence. Total rejuvenation naturally with organic menu that keeps you healthy. Staff are kind and just a call away. Peace is the fruit in this place. Do not expect urban style, it is 110% rural. Rooms are cosy and temperature is cool and comfortable. You need to be healthy as rooms are spread... More

The Good: - Totally remote place, cut-off from the usual tourists, to unwind yourself and be at peace. - Fantastic food fresh from their organic farm. - Private cottages with rustic charm, yet comfortable with modern bath fittings. - Huge property to take long walks- the waterfall trek is a must! What a view! - Watching the stars by the... More

We were 6 friends and we rented three rooms for 3 nights, the 3 room cluster was tucked away in a corner of the resort, ensuring full privacy to us. The rooms are rustic but very well appointed, each room has an attic bed, bathrooms are spacious with hot water and a super shower. Food at the restaurant was okay,... More

People who love nature must visit this place. We had our best time staying here and Surprisingly we got into tree house which is really amazing. People here are very kind and they are very friendly... Stay in tree house or peninsula which is on the other side of the steam where u will feel staying out of the world.... More
