Pros: Theres a water stream infront of the tree house. Very neat and clean. Good staffs. Calm and quiet place. Cons: No TV in the room. WiFi is slow. Hard to drive through the way to resort. Very narrow road.

Ela Ecoland is a beautiful place tucked away from the main tourist spots. I would rate it as one of the best holidays that we have had in recent years. Getting there was a breeze with Google Maps. (Note: Signal coverage up in the hills can be spotty. Please download & use in offline mode) We stayed there for 6... More

Food was very good, so was the service. Coir flooring of the the cottage can be spruced up for a better room ambiance. Supply of coffee,... More

My first advice to all readers, If you are looking for a nice concreted wall room cubical its not Ela Ecoland offers. But instead it will be an enthusiastic place for those who loves and explore the nature. I have visited Ela Ecoland recently which had been my 2nd visit along with my brothers and had a great stay in... More
