It's nature. The fact is that I loved this place being a part of nature. Beautiful and comfortable Tents and houses, plantations, awesome healthy food with welcoming hospitality. In short, the experience here was ineffable.

Perfect place to stay. The property is set away from the busy town of munnar in the middle of a plantation. The staff is just amazing. Provides a family setting. There is a stream passing through the property and you can walk along it or take a dip in the ice cold water. Will definitely visit again. Kudos to the staff jithin, Thomas, James, Vimala and Geetha

Unfortunaterly, this was the low-point of our India trip. We looked forward to staying here so much, hidden behind the trees, enjoying the Munnar nature (which we did but). Although the location is great and the spots where the bungalows and tree houses are places are amazing. The accomodation themselves are terrible. We stayed in one of the rock houses, the construction is just metal and wood rods and sheets, with plastic walls and no insulation. We are only 26 years old and not fussy at all, but each morning the rooms and our duvets were freezing cold and damp/wet everywhere. Although it was December (colder season), we expected slightly better quality stay for the price we paid and the least, stay dry. The bed was hard and umconfortable. The food was OK, nothing special and the service was OK, not great. The nature and the place is amaizng! But please have low expectations for the accommodation when you book here.

The location is one of the best factors that make up Ela Ecoland. The rooms are temporary structures and are very basic in nature, the rooms are sealed with vinyl materials. We understand that your expectations were met and we understand that you review is very much genuine. Reopening after Covid -19, we are looking forward for a new beginning with a new team and a new management. We hope things are back in good action, anytime if you are coming back to India, we would be more than happy to experience the New Ela Ecoland. Both in terms of tangible and intangible experience.

If you are a nature lover , this is a must visit property, very close to nature, this property is facing a beautiful stream with lots of wild trees , feels like staying in a forest. Above all this the food served was organic with a Kerala taste , the staff there were so helpful and showed great hospitality. Wish we had more time to stay there . Would definitely visit again with more friends and family ...all the best to team Ela.

Excellent place to be if you want to be amidst nature.Although the leeches in the rooms are a problem, else it is fine.The staff are helpful and finding the entrance to the resort can be problematic if you reach at night.Advisable not to take senior citizens with you.

Thank you so much for your review, as soon as the rains come, there are possibilities for leeches on the way. But we are doing our best to keep away the leeches with organic repellents. once again, thank you so much for your review.
