My wife and I had a wonderful 3 nights / 4 day experience in January at this resort. This resort is just 6 kms away from the town and nestled among the middle of breathtaking tea plantations facing to Attukal Waterfalls. The place is peaceful and very well kept. If you want to stay for some days far from crowd and busy days, this is the perfect place to hang out. A stay here will give you an eternal privacy as there is only 4 cottages there. Each cottage has actually two separate family rooms where two families can stay in them. Hence each cottage can accommodate two families at one time (i.e. total of 8 families in 4 cottages). Entrance for both the family rooms in one cottage was from two different sides and though the balcony was shared. Each accommodation included a large bedroom (its little bit dark inside the room) and a attached bathroom with 24 hours hot water. Ganga cottage is the best among the cottages as they offer a wonderful view the waterfalls from the balcony. We stayed at Ganga 2.Please not that; There is no internet facility in the rooms, anyways they offer free broadband WiFi in the lobby area.
We can just sit in the balcony and enjoy the views. I recommend you to have Early morning walks to the waterfall through the mist enjoying the lush green surroundings, inhaling the fresh air laden with scents of the variety of plants was the most memorable part of our stay. The air is clear, cool and energizing, a far cry from the sluggish climate of the city.
Food--I felt good, but you have to order and you get fresh whatever you order from the menu. The breakfast would be served in the restaurant. They do provide lunch and dinner as room service at free of cost. Price is also quite reasonable. Better order early. For dinner You have to order before 6 PM.
Coming towards staff, everyone was good.One special mention was the in house Restaurant staff - 'Akbar'.He is very active and gentle and looked after to all our needs during our stay there. He has never ever said 'No' for the numerous requests we had made. He always ensured that he tries his level best (with a smile on his face) to meet all the customer needs. I appreciate his timely and quick response. One nite when I was down with vomiting and stomach problems, he provides me the medicines, even though it was at late midnight (it was good and I was alright in the morning).
to sum up, this is the best and safe resort with cleaniness, good food, and courteous staff and at very serene location in munnar. I will defiantly come here again and wil recommend this to my friends.Thanks once again for Aranyaka management ,especially Akbar if you are reading this :)
