The location is perfect- high up in the trees surrounded by forests, mountains and tea plantations. There's also a cool waterfall nearby. If you're visiting Munnar, you want to avoid staying in the town and head into more remote places. It's quite tough to find by taxi, so try and get the location set on your phone before setting off....

I loved this hotel. The scenic location was simply spectacular. It is on the top of the hill with a 360 degree of the jungle and a great waterfall just to the side. It sits on part of the Letchmi tea estate which is just lovely to meander through. We saw some of the pikers working very hard, they have...

It is quite peaceful but certainly not the best experience . Very remote but tuktuks etc can be arranged . Lots of activities but compared to previous places we have stayed very expensive. Whilst we are totally in support of the eco ethos, more attention needs to be paid to cleanliness and maintenance. No hot water in the shower,despite the...

What a location! Our room was opposite lush vegetation and a waterfall. Views were stunning. The gardens were well kept and so peaceful. Just a short wander and you are amongst the tea planatation! Our room had a 'jungle' shower which looked excellent though I never got hot water out of it. Hot water was available in the leaky attachment....

If you are driving up from the Tiger reserve at Periwar, then give it plenty of time. Not only is the Wild Elephant Eco Friendly Resort a good hour of driving past Munnar, but the single track road with rocks on one side and precipitous drop the other tends to become a car park when two massive tourist coaches try...

Beautiful location in Munnar Hills, I would definitely prefer it to the other places closer to Munnar itself as this is isolated up in the mountains, very few nearby buildings, beautiful green vistas from your balcony and the common deck. It takes awhile to get there by car but its worth it. Food from the restaurant is good, the manager...

This place is amazing. Our Leaf Cottage faced the waterfalls, mountains, tea estate totally surronded by greenery and flowers. It felt like staying at your good friend's house as Mr Anil (at the reception) and all staff personally attended to our needs with delicious food cooked according to your order - all organic with water from the mountain streams.

My two female friends and I had a great stay at the Wild Elephant Eco friendly resort. The owner, Jaison, an Indian man from Kerala has made it his mission to live out his retirement by embracing life in nature and sharing his passion with guests. The day after we arrived Jaison introduced himself to us and brought us on...

The surroundings and the view form the place are wonderful. You can really enjoy a peaceful stay. The manager and his staff are really kind and helpful, they organised customized activities for us (walk in the jungle, walk by a waterfall, we saw wild elephants, the tea plantations are right behind the place and are very beautiful too). Rooms are...
