Woodpecker Resort is a perfect weekend getaway. The property is maintained with a set of amazing staff to take care of things around. I would highly recommend this resort for people visiting Munnar. The only drawback of the place is that it is on a hill slope, rooms have good jungle views from the resort, and required a walk that may be uncomfortable to kids and elderly.

Firstly, the roads are very bad to reach this destination. Since we had already done a booking through OYO rooms, once we reached there he denied the booking and asked us to pay the hotel amount saying they do not have any tie-up with OYO anymore. No network was available and Hotel inter-com was also not working. He was not ready to resolve the issue and just was greedy about money. Please do not ruin your trip!!

It was an exciting journey to wood pecker which is located deep inside the forest in Munnar. This resort is surrounded by full of trees and green. Sitting in the balcony and listen to the forest was so relaxing. Overall property service was up to the mark and we were really happy about it, thanks to the crew. We heard that roads to woodpecker was damaged during flood and we were concerned about it. Luckily roads are functioning and reaching the property was not difficult at all. Woodpecker is a good choice for people who love to experience some time inside the forest.

Location is wrong in Google maps. Actually location is very interior with no motorable road. High chance of vehicle damage Oyo gives food package however hotel says cannot provide at that price. With 100% money paid you get struck between Oyo and hotel owners. Even after 100% advance payment hotel gives additional bill to make for loss which have taken. Rooms are damp, no WiFi or phone connection available. Intercom was also not working. In middle of jungle so from adventure point location was ok provided you are going by Mahindra 4x4 Jeep.

The resort is located deep into the forest & you can sit in the balcony listening to the sounds of many birds. The room was adequately clean for our requirements. The management was very friendly in accommodating our needs for food, additional bedding etc. There is an absolute beauty of a view point nearby the property but access is restricted to it. The only down side of the property is the drive up to it via Kunjithanni which is very steep coupled with bad road. You are better driving from Munnar even though it is a tad longer.
