Resort is surrounded with beautiful natural waterfalls, herbal & spices plants. Full of greenery with tempting weather. Absolute place for young couples. Highly recommendable for the nature lovers. Amenities like WiFi to be provided for each room.

Thanks a lot for reviewing us. Wifi is complimentary at the front desk, extending it to the rooms have some technical difficulty due to the kind of terrain we have. But we are working on extending Wi Fi to the rooms. Once again thanks for coming down to Ela. More

Resort is located far way from the munnar center ,it's a nature resort , it's calm and cool. We took a luxury tent , it was well maintained . We need to walk a bit up the hill to reach our rooms.Couples can have great time here. Overall it was a great experience.

This hotel has only 5 rooms, including tents, cottages and a tree house. It is located at about 15-20 KM from Munnar town centre. The entrance to the resort includes crossing a small bridge, which is narrow and tricky to cross because of an uneven ground surface. The hotel is built on a natural terrain, with a lovely water stream,... More

Thanks a lot for that genuine words. Your review is perfect and complete, giving a clear idea about Ela Ecoland. We had a very interesting plantation tour which we think was missed as you had a tight schedule. Next time we will plan out a more beautiful stay for you at Ela. More

Was here for our honeymoon. Booked the tree-house and it was WONDERFUL! Its a small hotel with just 5 rooms but they are spread across a hill overlooking a river. Very good location and a great experience. Book this if you're planing to stay at a quiet place a little outside the city.

Great place to stay amidst the woods and wild waters. Tasty food made on request. Overall a wonderful stay. We were allowed to play and trench ourselves in the private waters within the resort. We also had limited time to visit nearby Viripara waterfall which is 7km from the resort. This is a less crowded and fresh waterfall.

A very memorable experience here with excellent food (paneer butter masala and upma) and the calming sound of the waterfall and parakeets. Only downside was no real shower in the cottage but everything else was perfect.

Beautiful natural space. The sound of gushing waters is meditative. We actually preferred staying in and enjoying the peace of the place than heading out. Great service by staff as well. They even give you a tour of the plantation on request. Highly recommended! Limited phone connectivity is availbale only for BSNL and Idea.

Some say it is a boon during holidays :-) some say it is unfortunate :-( Since this is very subjective, we do not comment... More
