“Bad experience”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I found this resort here....Whole trip was painful coz of this...I knew it was located at the outskirt of town, I wanted to have a peaceful trip...I checked all the details via phone before commiting...When I reached the resort in morning, i was shocked to see how dirty it was..plastic bottles, cig packets, beer bottles, remains of campfire...

The room was okay, except cats will run above your roof in night and some rats under your cot...You cannot sleep peacefully in any rooms here..

Swimming pool took 2 days to fill and they took 1 day to clean...So, I cannot even touch the pool water. When I enquired about the pool bePlease do not believe the photos posted...

The water falls close to the resort is the only one attract.

Room Tip: 100s of better resorts are there in Munnar...We were fooled by the photos...

, Owner at Wild Elephant Eco Friendly Resort, responded to this review, January 21, 2013
While we are always open to constructive criticism and correction, we would like to humbly submit that this review is totally biased and incorrect and to some extent malicious. The guest was under the impression that the resort is located in proper Munnar town which is not the case as we cannot have Natural beauty like this in the proper town area. We cannot change the distance of the resort from Munnar even if we wished to do so. As far as the pool is concerned the same was being serviced at the time when the guest arrived and was put to operation immediately. All other issues which are addressed are a fall out of the above. We believe that the good impression of our guests is the only reward we seek and there are several reviews which endorse our service and our integrity.

Had been to this place almost a year back in Feb 2012 with my wife and this place had got such a nice valley view ... and good food. The swimming pool at the top is the eye catcher in this resort. its got a water fall close by and the place is surrounded with green tea estates... the approach was a little bad back then but there were working on the road already then i am sure it must be done already.

Of various places stayed so far across the world, this one was best for me.

Dream location on slopes of mountains with full panoramic valley views and water falls, @ the top swimming pool. excellent and eco friendly design of spacious and different eco cottages like bamboo, tree house cottages and rooms with wall size windows give maximum open natural pristine landscape views.

Food is great. Infinite lobby experience, nature walks around property and on top that, services of hotel staff were very personal and excellent. All the time, staff was telling me to relax and just enjoy and they will take care of just everything.

Looking at energy and focus of their GM and staff, I am pretty sure they will keep scaling up with excellence. I am looking forward to my next trip to this same place.

The place is about 40 mins from Munnar town. A nice and tranquil place with picture perfect surroundings, away from the rush of the city.
The instant u step into the resort u are greeted by the roar of a waterfall, and the first thought that came to my mind was to visit the waterfall.
The staff were very courteous, and went out of the way to serve us.
The room was pretty good with nice views all around.
The food was good and had that distinct Malayalee flavour in it.
The place is best enjoyed when u come with a sole purpose of relaxing(If u are planning on doing those hop and hop sightseeing, then u should steer clear of this place).
All in All, the place is worth visiting and I left with some amazing memories.

I had stayed in wildelephant from 31dec to jan 2nd 2012 .Rooms are big , well furnished. I had stayed in leaf cottage. It's bathroom had a waterfall in it. Must experience it . Good food along with good service. There a swimming pool which has a view of the valley ahead. Good for relaxing in pool and also for taking pictures of sunset and nature.
