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...

Thanks for your kind review and we appreciate your observations

Reviewed 14 January 2017

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...
