“Perched on top”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

When I was told that i would have to hitch a ride on one of the hotel's four-wheel drive jeeps to get to the resort I knew this was going to be quite unlike other places in Munnar.
And so it is.
The drive up through the tea gardens was absolutely spectacular, although bumpy, and the stories about stray elephants visiting the route going up to the resort kept me on my toes.
That isn't the end of it, the comfortable tented accommodation are on a hill side which looks down at an incredible valley and if you walk up to the 'view point' you will see tiny little cars making their way up from Cochin to Munnar too.
The rooms themselves are spacious enough with a double bed, a little study and a bathroom with hot water on demand. Food, however, isn't their strong point. They conduct nature walks through the tea gardens with one of their in house naturalists guiding you and I am told that soon they will have a rock climbing and rappelling section ready for guests to try out as well.
But the one thing you must go here for is to watch the sun rise over the neighbouring mountains and fill your tent with its orange rays. Absolutely superb.

Room Tip: All the tents face east and have a balcony view to the rising sun, so you need not fuss about it.

It was awesome experience being in Nature zone tree house. Hospitality and their restaurant services was very nice. we felt as very close to nature when we did small treck around hill places and also noticed some elephant foot prints which roaming around there. Definitely I will try to go to stay at least for two days by next year.

Finally one suggestion to admin people which they should improve their communication between their central office in cochi and Munnar site office.

1. Good Location
2. Good, friendly staff.
3. Average food
4. Average transport:
One cannot directly reach the resort due to the rough terrain road and they have jeeps for to and fro transportation of guests. But then, they have only two jeeps and during evening pickup we had to wait for 1.5 hrs, which definitely was not cool.
4. Bad tents:
The tents are definitely not luxurious.....the carpets (rather rugs) on the floor are shabby. The inside surface of the tents was covered at many places with fungus. Though most of the time we were sight seeing, we still spotted two cockroaches and lizards. The electric points were I guess selected from garage sale. Even standard make electronic item chargers were not fitting properly. The tent door zippers were operable only from outside. So while opening from inside one needs to virtually pull apart two sides of the tent fabric, since there's no way you can hold the zipper handle. Also, the zipper had no facility for locking from inside and outside. So privacy/security of our stuff does become an issue. The only saving grace was the toilet which was GOOD.
And yes, I have gone to other hill station resorts in India with luxury tents and those definitely were plush.

So poor value for money. Wont recommend till they spruce up the tents and transport.

PS: They haven't included any photos of tent interiors on their website....

Room Tip: choose rooms away from reception!!
