The good- after checking in we went on a lovely walk to the nearby waterfall, stopping on the way for tea with a local family who welcomed us into their home with open arms. It was a valuable glimpse into the daily lives of working Keralans living on the tea plantations, a welcome change from the pampered luxuries we experienced...

Great location for enjoying nature, with a panaromic view of the Hills and Forests. Quite a variety of colourful, uncommon birds can be sighted here including the Hornbill. However, stay is not at all comfortable, with poky rooms & baths. B/fast is meagre with little or no options. But you can spend the entire day outside your room and soak...

Fantastic Location but room is very small, furniture and fittings are basic, bathroom is too small. Staff are really good, service is fast. Restaurant is also good. For complimentary breakfast only option is poori and sabji, if you dont want to have anything oily and fried in the morning, then tough luck. The place is quite remote and gets a...

We arrived in Munnar a day earlier than planned but they were able to change our dates. I had originally booked this as the booking site said it was close to Munnar centre but I wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. Beautiful setting and views. The rooms were clean and spacious with breath taking views from the balcony. Walking...

If you are a nature lover and just want to relax, Wild Elephant is your ideal destination. We first thought that we will go for sight seeing after checking into hotel but our mind changed quickly after we stepped in. This hotel is situated little far from town but its worth it as it provides best view of nature and...

This place is located about 18km before Munnar and the location is quite stunning. Also it doesn't have the crowd and noise of busy Munnar town so if you are looking for calm, peace and serenity this place is for you. Mind you there is no WIFI and only BSNL is having coverage here, so plan accordingly if you must...
