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.

We stayed from 15 to 17 sept. We were a group of 8 adults and 4 kids below 12. Booked a rock house room and 2 tents. Munnar tourist spots were absolutely traffic congested these days as all of India decided to visit munnar at the same time. We could not visit many other places. The only positive point of...

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.

I was reading somewhere that you tend to get happier if you spend time in nature. They say it is due to the fact that we evolved in it (forest/nature) and it is in our DNA. I couldn’t be more happy about the 2 days I spent in Ela Ecoland and I can confidently say my DNA agrees :-). This...
