The location is absolutely breathtaking with a valley view from almost everywhere. There is a small waterfall which you can reach withing 15 minutes of walk. The location is 30 km away from Munnar city and takes an hour due to twisty roads. Factor this in when you plan a trip. The property could have been better planned. The rooms... More

Nice place for a night stay. Tree house and leaf cottages are spacious and good views. Its tough to reach there from munnar. Follow alternative route in google map. Primary route leading to a different place and so it will delay reaching there. Try to reach before dark. Morning we trekked to nearby water falls. Dinner in resort is good.... More
