Aranyaka resort was awesome . No words to explain , have to go and stay there to experience it. This place was very nice as expected , staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms/washrooms were clean. They helped us arrange for our vehicle and also booked us for some local shows. Rajesh at the restaurant was great. I have to admit right from the reception desk to the care takers of this resort each and every person went over and beyond the service required. Everyone was very friendly. I strongly recommend Aranyaka Resort to everyone if you are going to stay in Munnar. Thanks to all the staff of Aryanka Resort for making our stay so memorable .

Arankya resort is located in a peaceful location in Pullivasal estate about 5 - 6 KM from Munnar town. Location is superb. We can see a waterfall from some of the portions of the resort. The location is away from all noise and pollution of Munnar town but easily accessible. We walked down to Attukal waterfalls as our morning walk. Restaurant is good and food is made to order, is fresh and good. They claim to be using only natural ingredients which is nice.

Rooms are average considering the rates charged and resort does not have any recreational amenities like sports room, badminton or camp fire, etc. This disappointed us a bit. There is a small kids park but our kids could not use it as there was a dead bird on the slide which was not cleaned.

Staff is good and polite. Overall a decent stay.

Room Tip: Ganga rooms have best view.

"Awesome" is the word which came out as soon as i entered into the resort. Such a fantastic location which heart whelming welcome by the staff . I stayed in Aranyaka Resort between 3 Apr - 5th Apr in Ganga 1 room and i just cherished every moment in it to the core. First thing which i noticed from this room was the waterfall, very clear and peaceful(you can literally hear the sound of water ) . you can just sit in the french porch(Balcony) and look at the stunning view of waterfall and tea plantation all day long. Everybody from Security to the management treats you so well that you forget you are away from home.

Lets get to the interior of the room. What can i Say, Bathroom is so well maintained with some modern facilities that you tend to bathe more than usual :) .Bed room is as big as living hall but you feel to sit in the balcony all the time. :) This place gets cold in the night so there is no provision of Air Conditioner. Food Menu covers most of the dishes starting from north india all the way to south . you can just have anything without having to think much on it. We ordered Chicken masala, roti's, rice ,dal and fish in our 2 days of stay and the taste is still remains in my mind.

Special mention to the staff because they were so humble and ready to help that you feel to visit this place time and again. I wanted a perfume made up of sandalwood and it was already 7 pm in the night . The Staff didnt hesitate to get it for me from the munnar city as late as 8 pm. I wouldn't forget it. I have visited many hotels around the country and havent seen such helping staff before. Truely remarkable.

If you truly wanna enjoy , Consider Ganga 1 or 2 for your stay. You wont regret your decision on choosing Aranyaka Resort. Its one of its kind and must not be missed. Check out the photos which i took from my room.

Happy Holidays !! :)

Room Tip: Choose GA1 or GA 2. GA2 is more private as there is nothing on its left side whereas GA 1 has clear...

We were 2 couples and have booked Nila Cottage for 2 nights during last week of Feb,2013.

The View from Nila 1 was amazing. One can have a good sunrise view. the location of the resort is something to look out for. The surroundings were very appealing for a good morning walk and had a relaxed stay. The sounds of the trees was so connecting, that you hardly get such soothing effects.

Though the rooms are not very big in size, i felt they were comfortable (if not luxurious) for the stay.

The hospitality of the staff was excellent, they always had a smile on their faces. We never had any chance to complaint. the breakfast had good options and very edible. they prepare good kerala food compared to other dishes.

there might had been 1 or 2 things like a faded table cloth or slow water flow from the tap which i could neglect compared to the other positive things.

overall had a wonderful stay.
