Reviewed February 2, 2013

Deep Woods give you the best of what Munnar has to offer;pristine location, meditative tranquility and comfortable stay. Clubbed with the cordial and ever helpful staff, Deep Woods is the best you can get at Munnar.
Situated in the depth of montane forests, the property is arguably the closest to nature as you have always wanted to see it. Clean and spacious rooms and prompt service makes it even more better. My everlasting memory of my stay over here would be the jungle trek organised by the staff and the barbecue night with campfire. The three days that i spent here were three days of my life well lived and i hope it would be the same for everyone coming to visit this slice of paradise.

I've been staying for 3 days at the Deep Woods Resort. The stay was really nice and so are the staff, in the end I was almost sorry to leave.
Entering the room, it was clean and quiet (couldn't hear a noise). The bathroom is also spacious and very clean. The shower seems to be bigger than my house.

Very rich and tasty breakfast, I love scrambled eggs, and I found the best around. We enjoyed our breakfast which kept us full to skip our lunches most of the days we stayed there.
It is a great starting point for nice walking tours. Having stayed in City centre hotels this was a great break. Have been recommending to most people I know. Hospitality, Food quality and the environment are great. Very beautifully maintained and run.

These are the things that made me enjoy my stay at this hotel, but my warmest congratulations to the hotel for their choice of personnel. They know how to really make you feel at home, and if you need anything it is like asking a family member. Congratulations from the heart, you were fantastic.

Went to Munnar during on the 25th of Jan and again stayed at deepwoods. Earlier the resort was named as Pulimootil Estates and they changed the name recently. The best thing about this resort is that there are cottages of different sizes; two to five bedroom cottages are there. This time I went with a bigger group of 15 people and we took a five bedroom bungalow. We had a lot more fun bcoz we all stayed at the same bungalow. I couldn't find this kind of flexible room options anywhere else in Munnar. They also provided us a campfire(exclusively to our bungalow) along with facilities to prepare barbecue (Grill and Coal). Complimentary continental breakfast was also provided. They added a new restaurant to their infrastructure which was an issue I faced last time I went. Highly recommended for the flexible room options and the facilities they provide.

in this busy life, this is what we want . the location is really deep inside the woods as the name suggests...they took me away from the rush of the town to a calm and lovely place.. the ride to the location was too good. rooms were beautiful and neat and in all ranges which we need. the reception which we got was great and the staff greeted well... the surprise came with the camp fire at the night when the temperature dropped to below 10. that was a great experience and later at night they took us into the forest for a walk with the full moon shining above us. it was totally cool.the morning was the best, with the nature as silent as never before.. the food was really tasty, thanks to the chef n the room service was always a call away. a really good place to stay.

To begin with, "Deep Woods" is an apt name for this resort. Unlike many hotels and resorts in Munnar, this one is locaed deep in the woods. If you are a forest lover, or looking for sme peaceful time amidst a forest, this is the resort for you. It is quite far from Munnar town, but who expects a forest in the middle of a town. So distance from the town was not a problem for me. We had called up the reception and asked for directions and so we could drive all the way to the resort by ourwelves without much confusion. As soon as we reached the place, we were greeted warmly by the staff. This resort is more like an estate with many cottages which are quite far from one another which gives you the privacy that you need, Each cottage is different from one another in terms of number of bedrooms and also infrastructure. If you want a single room instead of a whole cottage, such rooms are also available. we went as a group and hence chose a 3 bhk cottage. Rooms were all well furnished and maintained. Another speciality here is that they have a couple here as care-takers for evry cottage. They are very down to earth and take care of all your needs. Restaurant was quite far from where we stayed but there was a jeep which took us from one place to another. We had breakfast and dinner from there. Food was really good that we could not come up with any complaints.
If you a morning person. get ready for a small trekking. They showed us the whole place around, where we also listened to mornng birds of munnar. They even took us to a nearby waterfall and a tree house. It was a wonderful experience for us. At night they arranged a campfire for us which we really enjoyed. And one more thing, there is no mobile reception at this place, hence without any disturbance from the outside world, we had a peaceful and quiet stay at deep woods. Overall we had a great time here and looking forward to visiting here again.

Location: One thing you must know about this hotel is that the location is as deep as it can get. The good part is the road to the hotel and surroundings are just fabulous - a treat for your eyes. The downside is you go too deep into Munnar, that getting to a city takes you 20-30 mins which means for any nearby visit one has to plan accordingly.

About the resort: Spread across a large estate, with discrete and distant cottages/ rooms. One can enjoy/ feel the calmness around

Rooms: We stayed in a cottage, the rooms were clean but average built (old construction). We had issues with water supply and heating, but the staff managed to get it sorted.

Room service/ dining: There are no nearby restaurants, thus, one has to eat at the resort. There is a dining area but it is not like a regular restaurant. While the breakfast is complementary, for lunch & dinner one has to pre order meal around 2 hrs in advance. Food quality is ok.

Staff: Staff is courteous, but sloppy. we asked for 2 additional blankets and it took them ages to get those.

Booking issue: We booked 2 rooms through an online portal, however, the hotel reception, screwed up and thought we had book only 1 room. However, they corrected for this and put us on a cottage.

Room Tip: Two things - there is no mobile network, hence, the only way to communicate is through the phone at...

Munnar is an amazingly beautiful place with hills and hills of tea estates.
We reached Munnar in 12 hours from bangalore. Deep woods location is excellent. Rooms are clean, food was the only area where they have room for improvement. As we were 2 families, We had a 2bhk bungalow with amazing view from the balcony.
This bunglow stay was a complete value for money. The waterfall inside the property was a lovely trek of 1.5 kms which we did with our kids.
I really loved our stay in Deep woods. Will recommend it to everyone.
