I had booked a tent and a Jungle Cottage (Peninsula) at the Elephant Valley Eco Farm (EVEF), which is about 20 kms before Kodaikanal, in the Palani hills. It has the feel of a African Safari set up and is a large plantation set up in a space of 100 acres. It is located on an old elephant migration route... More

Loved this property and I had a very relaxing stay here. Even though the maintenance of the resort can be stepped up a notch, ultimately it being a 'jungle resort' kind of a stay means that everything adds to the charm. It is nice to be surrounded by greenery all around and birds chirping away. The river in the property... More

There is a lake flowing In the... More

The staffs were so mature and service was very good, the night ambience and forest sound is the real thing which can't be experienced anywhere else,... More

Most of our trips usually get planned a day or two before departure and in this case, it was about a week I think. I was extremely busy so I asked my 12 year old daughter to do some research on places close to Kodaikanal (too stressful to stay in town now!) and she came up with a few with... More

Really enjoyed our stay there.... Serene life amid pristine nature. Awesome food... nice people.... though a little pricey. Most ideal for those who love a relaxing holiday. Trekking was a memorable experience. A word of caution for the first timers: Do check-in before 6 pm for two reasons. 1) The 6 km long pocket road that leads to The Elephant... More

In the name of eco-tourism & being rustic, all you get is a very bad quality room, which is small and dirty. A dirty carpet on the floor, which was muddy. Everything smelt damp. Bathroom was most basic too. Was waiting to finish my stay and leave. Don't go close! I just don't get how people can write great reviews... 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
