“A real nature thrill !”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We enjoyed our stay in the middle of the tea plantations, the round hills panorama was a real beauty. Our hosts displayed a great amount of sincere efforts to make our stay as comfortable and quiet as possible. It is heaven on earth !
Great cuisine too, try the black peppered chicken and the brown dal… Great pleasure for the mouth and hearts.
We truly recommend Camelot Resort. You need a good car and driver to climb the road !

Camelot resort is definitely good place to stay and its away of from the crowd of the hills. The resort is surrounded by tea gardens and its beautiful . The sunbird room had a very good view and the rooms are well maintained. They have well maintained garden and one can relax and have awesome views of the hills and valley from the resort.

You can trek around the resort and the staff also offers the guide to track to nearest points.

Food is average and it would be good if they can appoint good chef and provide different cuisine..

Room Tip: Sunbird First floor rooms are really good with beautiful view of the valley!

Camelot resort is a highly recommended place to stay in Munnar. The staff at this resort are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that the guests have a pleasant stay. We stayed at off-peak season time, when there was a record rainfall and bad weather. But the staff and management at Camelot ensured that we had no difficulty despite the bad weather.
The rooms are neat and clean and hot water is always available. The meals served at the restaurant is tasty. A must go back to place in my list. Devi. U.S.A

This was my third visit to the resort having known Mr Dileep for over 10 years.
Memories of my previous visit and the indelible mark the location left on me made me wander back to the place.
And how much has changed, lovely rooms, paved walking paths, and landscaped gardens.. However, the warmth , hospitality and excellent service has remained the hallmark of Camelot.
The visit was marked by one of the heaviest monsoons the place has seen. Mist, howling windy and the rains added to the wonderful experience.., k p murali, Chennai

Exact GPS Location of Camelot Resort: N 10°3'37.0" E 77°0'27.8"

Booking:
I booked the Hummingbird room(Super Luxury room), which is very spacious and has good view. However I felt that it doesn't worth even to pay this much for a resort which has only basic amenities.

Driving:
I took the Dindugal-Theni-Munnar route, but decided to return through the Udumalpet route due to lot of maintenance work in theni route. Also the udumalpet route has the waterfalls and many other tourist attractions.

Location:
After reaching munnar, I decided not to believe my GPS or Google Maps, since I learnt that it has a private road to the letchmi estate, which is not available in maps. You must take the mankulam road from Munnar nearly for 8 kms and then drive another 2 kms in a narrow private road (Forest).

Final 2 kms may increase your heartbeat because it has no proper road and very steep that you can't find in munnar. I guess another few degree inclination would have tilted the vehicle. However my car was able to climb in first gear without any trouble.

I really like this resort as there was a complete privacy with no disturbance. Rooms were clean and has good view from the room. Staffs were courteuos and They cooked a very good food. My kid never wanted to leave this resort as she liked it very much.

If you are planning to visit this resort, then buy BSNL (Cell One) sim card, since this is the only network that will work in the resort. You must reach the resort before 6 pm for clear visiblity (fog) of the road. Also I was told about an elephant that came down last night. There are no shops or hospitals for next 10 kms, so go prepared. However there was always a mild fear since I was the only guest in this private resort, phone is not reachable and nobody can question if something worst have happened.

For Family, if you are going in groups, then this is the best place to stay. Otherwise you may take the risk as I did.

Camelot resort situated at the top most part of Munnar,It is most highlighting feature in the Camelot resort.. Camelot resort really is a hill station and providing super luxury room,luxury room,deluxe room as we prefer. Really I had a great experience there..We can catch the wonderful view of the misty mountains around Camelot resort.. I enjoyed the self sufficiency of Camelot.

This is one excellent resort for all its qualities - location, service, premises,
Here's what i loved about this place: - wonderfully warm staff - beautiful huge rooms and nice housekeeping staff who taught us how to fold towels in fancy shapes - lavish buffet spread for all meals - in the middle of scenic tea gardens - beautiful tree house
i would definitely come back here with my family to experience the best get together
