Its a perfect place for people who want to spend time with nature. wrt the location, it is in a spectacular place with tea estates on one side and forest on the other side providing ample opportunities for trekking. Its remoteness from the busy munnar town is an added advantage. The rooms are well maintained and have good view of...

We hire a tour to visit the tea plantations, the mud house, we took a hike along the jungle and spotted many wild elephant tracks, we went through some local villages, and a long etc. We suggest this...

The good- after checking in we went on a lovely walk to the nearby waterfall, stopping on the way for tea with a local family who welcomed us into their home with open arms. It was a valuable glimpse into the daily lives of working Keralans living on the tea plantations, a welcome change from the pampered luxuries we experienced...

Great location for enjoying nature, with a panaromic view of the Hills and Forests. Quite a variety of colourful, uncommon birds can be sighted here including the Hornbill. However, stay is not at all comfortable, with poky rooms & baths. B/fast is meagre with little or no options. But you can spend the entire day outside your room and soak...

Hmm, what can I say. this was the most disappointing stay out of 3 weeks in India and it was also the most expensive booking. I was excited by the reviews but I dont know why... I got a room I didn't book the 'tree room' which although had nice views was so small, it was hard to fit 2...

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...
